Shared Photo: J.J. Dunn in medical school with cadaver

+10 votes

I wanted to share this photo of Joseph Dunn (graciously provided by a neighbor who is the grandson of Dunn, farthest man on the right); I found out it is from Western Reserve Medical School circa 1900.  At first glance, they appear to be at a bar; however, a closer look reveals that they are medical students poised around and working on a cadaver. I am in hopes that others who had ancestors in Western Reserve Medical School around 1900 may be able to identify them.
