Lewis Memorial Hospital

The library has received a very interesting document with architectural renderings of the historic structure, Lewis Memorial Hospital, which is located in Yosemite National Park. The report was prepared  by Architectural Resources Group, Inc. in April 2013. You will find this interesting document with blueprints and photographs (both historic and recent) in Government Documents at I 29.88:L 58.

In the introduction to the volume, we learn that the building was first called the W. B. Lewis Hospital when it opened in 1930. It was known until 1976 as Lewis Memorial Hospital. After that, it has generally been called Yosemite Medical Clinic.Those with an interest in either medicine or architecture will find it interesting.

Watch Hamlet Starring David Tennant via Films on Demand

Watch the Royal Shakespeare Company Production of Hamlet via the library’s subscription to Films on Demand: Master Academic Collection.

Description from Films on Demand:

Called “the greatest Hamlet of his generation” by Guardian reviewer Robert McCrum, Scottish actor David Tennant headlines this edgy film version of the acclaimed 2008 Royal Shakespeare Company stage production. Tennant is supported by a host of gifted players—including the impeccable Patrick Stewart as Claudius and Oliver Ford Davies in an astonishing performance as a doddering yet strangely leonine Polonius. Modern costumes, shrewd textual abridgements, and a recurring motif of high-tech video surveillance all connect the play to 21st-century anxieties, but these attributes in no way eclipse Tennant’s forceful mixture of rage, sorrow, and manic humor. Original broadcast title: Hamlet. A BBC Production. (2 parts, 88 minutes and 94 minutes)
