Chester the Skeleton

Meet Chester the skeleton

Meet Chester. He is approximately 100 years old. From his skeleton we can gather that he was very ill for much of his life and likely had a difficult death. But he or his family made the decision to donate his body Chesterto science. In doing so, he has helped educate thousands of LSSU students, many who have gone on to become practicing physicians, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, optometrists, physician assistants, physical therapists, athletic trainers and research scientists. And all of those LSSU alumni have helped make sick and injured people well. What a gift Chester has given us! Donors like Chester are the unsung heroes. Now it’s our turn to show him our appreciation for the contribution he has made to educating our students. If you have had an experience working with Chester in the anatomy lab at LSSU, please tell us your story. We are planning a celebration of his 100th birthday to acknowledge his donation and would love to include your experience of learning from Chester in the LSSU lab. Pictured above is Chester with a group of current students in the anatomy lab. Below that are Britton Ranson Olson '99 and Kathleen Hinds '75, both of whom remember Chester from when they were students, and now use him for a teaching aid as professors in the biology department.
