    DR. JOHN CODY named the 2013 The Ranice W. Crosby Distinguished Achievement Awardee


    news May 2013: On May 23 at the annual Johns Hopkins School of Medicine Convocation Dr. John Cody received the Ranice W. Crosby Distinguished Achievement Award recognizing him a distinguished Hopkins alumnus.


    Dubbed the "Audubon of moths" for his prolific paintings of the Great Saturniid's, John Cody is a true renaissance man. Prior to practicing psychiatry for 30 years, he trained under Ranice Crosby in 1950 as a medical illustrator in the Johns Hopkins Department of Art as Applied to Medicine. While he did not practice as a medical illustrator, his training at Hopkins continues to impact his paintings of the Saturniid moths in which John strives to show the beauty of all living creatures.


    Dr. Cody is also the author of four biographies including After Great Pain: The Inner Life of Emily Dickinson; The Life and Times of Wagner; Max Brödel: The Man Who Put Art in Medicine (co-authored with Ranice Crosby); and Ranice W. Crosby: A Tribute to Fifty Years of Teaching.

    HOWARD BARTNER is the recipient of the 2011 Max Brodel Award for Excellence in Education.



    news July 2011: Mr. Howard Bartner, an Associate Professor in the Department of Art as Applied to Medicine was honored at the 2011 Association of Medical Illustrators (AMI) annual meeting in Baltimore with the Max Brodel Award for Excellence in Education. This award recognizes and honors a medical illustrator for outstanding educational contributions to the profession of Medical Illustration. Criteria include educational and/or administrative contributions to a graduate program and acting as a mentor to prospective students in Medical Illustration. The recipient should demonstrate a sustained contribution to education by presenting papers and workshops at regional and annual meetings and in print publications.


    news Before coming to Hopkins, Howard received both a Bachelor of Arts degree from the Elkins Tyler School of Fine Art as well as a Bachelor of Science Degree from Temple University. Howard graduated from the Hopkins Program with a certificate in 1958. In 1969, he fulfilled the additional requirement for the MA degree. After graduating from Hopkins, Howard went on to dedicate his entire professional career to the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland and devoted over 50 years of teaching excellence at Hopkins.


    news One cannot speak of Howard's work without including examples of his beautiful ophthalmological illustrations. The techniques used to create a such a piece such clearly mirror those taught by his teacher at Hopkins, noted ophthalmological illustrator, Annette Burgess. Most of Howard's artwork is characterized by an accomplished confident loose rendering style. In 1962, following Annette's retirement from Hopkins, Ranice would give Howard the privilege to join the Hopkins faculty as a part time instructor. It is since then that Howard began teaching Ophthalmological Illustration to every graduate of our program. It is said that: "Teachers who inspire know that teaching is like cultivating a garden, and those who would have nothing to do with thorns must never attempt to gather flowers." We truly believe teachers like Howard continue to inspire others by his example. Most of us would not have blossomed as well had it not been for master gardeners like Howard. So for this we want to thank and congratulate Howard. Click here to read more about Howard in PDF format

    GARY LEES honored with lifetime acheivement award


    The AMI Lifetime Achievement Award to GARY P. LEES This charismatic man at age 22 graduated from Tulane University (BS) and the University of Houston(Fine Arts) with good grades and goals established. With a vivacious bride by his side, he entered the graduate program in medical illustration at the University of Michigan, in Ann Arbor. In 1969, at the right date and time, he donned his Master's duds, was hooded and shook hands with the Dean; all according to Hoyle. In 1970, Gary's future opened with two exciting pathways; he joined the Hopkins medical illustration faculty and he became an active member of the AMI. And so, this cheerful, enthusiastic, optimistic young man really then started on his lifetime achievements--to the present. His accomplishments, fraught at times with anxiety, were positive advancements in all aspects of the profession. An accounting is vast and, as listed without specific dates (sometimes repeated or extended) is awesome.

    NEIL HARDY brodel award for educational contributions


    Brödel Award for Educational Contributions To Neil Hardy (JHU '58) The nitty-gritty of this award is to honor a medical illustrator for long-term outstanding educational contributions to the profession of medical illustration. Without a doubt, Neil has bolstered the business and ethical reputation of both the AMI and its individual members throughout his career. His sample job contract and his leadership support of free-lance proprietorship have rung the Liberty Bell. Neil has been tireless in his committee work to assure that graduate programs of medical illustration meet accreditation requirements. Better yet, as an instructor in Molecular Illustration as well as Business Practices at Hopkins, Neil has guided his students through the trials and tribulations of such courses with a hearty cheer of fellowship. Alas! Why ever have you left all this for retirement?

    RANICE CROSBY receives degree of doctor of humane letters


    RWC 7/13/04 Ranice Crosby On May 23, 2002 Edward Miller, Dean of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, read the following citation as he awarded Ranice this honorary degree: The pioneering Department of Art as Applied to Medicine at Johns Hopkins has had only four directors. For forty of its ninety-one years, that director was a venerated teacher and extraordinary artist named Ranice Winifred Crosby. You were just twenty-seven, three years into your career, when the dean Alan Chesney, asked you to lead Art as Applied to Medicine. Over the decades that followed, you have been a guiding force in the department and an inspiration for the entire profession of medical illustration. You ensured the department's future by establishing its first accredited graduate degree program in 1958. You kept alive the legacy of its legendary founder, Max Brödel, co-authoring his biography. You established an archive featuring his work and that of other pioneers. An excellent artist from the first, you have pushed to advance your field not only in artistic proficiency but also in its value as a scholastic complement to the medical sciences. In gratitude, the Association of Medical Illustrators, which you helped create and led for many years, gave you its Lifetime Achievement Award. Today, as director emerita of the department, you are serving under your eighth medical school dean and concluding your fifty-ninth year as a teacher. You have enhanced immeasurably the careers of hundreds of your students and colleagues. Ranice Winifred Crosby, for your enthusiastic, lifelong dedication to both the past and the future of medical illustration, The Johns Hopkins University is proud to confer upon you the degree of Doctor of Humane letters, honoris causa.
