Dr. Daniel S. Lambs contributions to military medicine can be seen today in the collections of the National Museum of Health and Medicine NMHM. His accomplishments include performing the autopsies of an American president and his assassin. His impact can be best appreciated through his generous specimen donations to the then-Army Medical Museum AMM, todays NMHM, and through his socially progressive activities in the Washington, DC, medical community. Lambs career is distinguished by lifetime service as staff pathologist to the AMM 1865-1920 and development of the Howard University anatomy program.
