Various illustrations by Tom Jones, founder of UIC’s Biomedical Visualization program and first president of the Association of Medical Illustrators. The department has many original illustrations by Jones; these were some of the ones that I enjoyed the most.
First AMI Annual Meeting, Philadelphia 1946, Tom Jones is fourth from left in front row.
For one of my classes, we listed to a lecture on Tom Jones and his contributions to medical illustration. He was always looking to the future, and believed in the use of various new media to help educate doctors, patients, and the public on medical matters. He helped shape modern medical illustration through his illustration along with his work with the Association of Medical Illustrators.
