Museum and Library Overview

One of the Hughston Foundation’s most renowned resources is the Hughston Library, housing the Hughston Museum. A large collection of materials on sports medicine and orthopaedics grew from Dr. Hughston’s personal collection and today provides valuable resources for physicians, fellows, and other healthcare practitioners, as well as for Columbus-area students from junior high through graduate school.

 

A fulltime librarian provides reference, bibliographic, and research services, as well as on-line searching and interlibrary loans. Also contained in the Hughston Foundation Library is the archive of original work done by Dr. Hughston and others who helped advance the Hughston Clinic and orthopaedic sports medicine as a whole. The Jack C. Hughston, MD, Collection of rare books and memorabilia is also housed there.

 

The Hughston Foundation Museum, located on the first floor of the Library, displays samples of completed projects created by the Foundation. The displays show the advantages of having a unique professional staff that begins with research, converts the knowledge gained into a written and illustrated product, and then transforms the pieces into finished educational tools ranging from DVDs to PowerPoint presentations.

 

Along the back wall of the museum is a permanent display showcasing photographs, awards and memorabilia representing the life and accomplishments of Hughston Foundation Founder, Dr. Jack C. Hughston.
