Armin Bismark Hemberger


Hemberger (1896-1974) combined an extraordinary skill of an artist with the medical accuracy of a technical illustrator. He worked at the Yale School of Medicine (1918-1964) first as a medical illustrator and later as an instructor where he produced 661 medical illustrations that have been used to train generations of physicians. From 1925 to 1972 his art works in a variety of media including pen and ink, woodcut, pencil, water color and silk screen were exhibited extensively locally and in galleries, libraries, art clubs, colleges and hospitals throughout the northeast. His medical work can be seen by all online at the Yale Medical Library:
