Kaminski's Digital Image Library
Dedicated to Geraldine Kaminski OAM 1918-1985.
In 1975, Geraldine Kaminski produced sets of 100 colour teaching slides on the subcutaneous and systemic mycoses, which were distributed by the Australian Society for Microbiology. Gerry was an eminent Australian and mycologist who worked at the Adelaide Children’s Hospital from 1937 to 1985 where she established the present day Mycology Reference Laboratory in 1960. She was a meticulous investigator, a gifted teacher and a person of rare humility. As a memorial to Gerry, this collection was upgraded in 1987 to include a collection 480 colour 35mm slides covering the mycoses and pathogenic fungi likely to be encountered in Australasia, South East Asia and Oceania. An additional 120 new slides have now been added to produce a set of 500 high quality digital [JPEG] images covering the clinical and mycological features of most pathogenic fungi encountered in the world.
Disclaimer: Please note that some of the images within these slides are somewhat explicit and are not recommended for viewing if you are squeamish or under the age of 18.
