There may be a temporary service outage on our Digital Library (non-newspaper) pages on Wednesday, July 30th while we update the CONTENTdm production server from version 6.5 to version 6.8. This means that the Digital Collections may be temporarily unavailable on July 30th. We plan to have all services restored Thursday, July 31st. Thank you for your patience.
No one in the field of neuro-ophthalmology could be as smart-and-funny as Norman Schatz, MD. Drawing on the
enormous and diverse patient population of the Wills Eye Institute, Jefferson Medical College, he developed an unmatchable
repertoire. If you had seen an intriguing case, he had seen three of them—in the previous week! With his residents and fellows, he
published accounts of virtually every strange clinical phenomenon. His weekly conferences at Wills, in which he would
imitate accents and pantomime medical manifestations, were standing room only. Many of the leaders of present-day neuroophthalmology
got there because they wanted to be like Schatz.
