Hidden History of New Haven
New Haven’s celebrated history often overshadows its fascinating past. It was home to America’s first woman dentist, an architect who designed the tallest twin towers in the world and a medical student who used toy parts to create an artificial heart pump. The city is noted as home to a world class university, the first African American to receive a PhD degree and the man who gave most common dinosaurs their names. New Haven’s rich and fascinating cultural legacies make it a treasured New England city.
