Cell Drawings by Dorothy Sturm

Photomicrographs by Ann Bell

Smears were given for photomicrographs by the following individuals and institutions: Dr. Luther Burkett Dr. Marion Dugdale Mrs. Janie Gardner, MS, H(ASCP) Ms. Rachel Lehman, MT(ASCP) Dr. Alvin Mauer Mrs. Ioye Thomas, MT(ASCP) Dr. Frank White Centers for Disease Control, Atlanta, GA LeBonheur Children's Medical Center, Memphis, TN St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Memphis, TN Regional Medical Center, Memphis, TN

Note: The photomicrographs are from the University of Tennessee Division of Hematology teaching file, which was started more than twenty-five years ago. Stains and staining techniques have changed during this period of time and, hence, cell colors may vary and drawing paper used by the artist has darkened.
