Dr. Frank E. Wiedemann was the first doctor in the United States to use an X-ray machine in his practice at the Rose Dispensary building in downtown Terre Haute.  He is also well remembered for having forgiven, several times, the debts of all his patients.  In 1947, ISU's Dr. Wann created a portrait bust of Wiedemann to place on campus.  Students in teh ISU Nursing program continue this interest in the inner workings of the body as have these artists from the Permanent Art Collection.
