A portion of the papers of Dr. Quentin Young, which were recently donated to the Northwestern University Archives, are on display as part of a larger exhibit at the Northwestern University library, titled: "Global Health: Access and Information."

The lynchpin of the exhibit, Tracy Kidder's Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Who Would Cure the World, is being used to leverage a broader conversation with students and visitors about global health.

The exhibit, which runs from September 7 through October 22, 2010,  includes:


          o The papers of  Quentin Young, a Northwestern Medical School Alumnus ,  national leader on public health policy and social justice issues, and founder and chairman of Health & Medicine Policy Research Group (HMPRG)

          o Rare materials dating back to the eighteenth century documenting efforts to alleviate poverty and disease among the global poor

          o Books on global health initiatives in Africa, and

          o Books, reports and journals describing emergency transportation and evacuation in the wake of natural disasters
