Willard R. Zemlin was a faculty member in the Department of Speech
and Hearing Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
for 20 years. He was also on the faculty of the University of
Illinois School of Basic Medical Sciences. As author of the well-known
textbook Speech and Hearing Science, Anatomy and Physiology,
Dr. Zemlin's influence on the field of speech and hearing science
has been an unmatched phenomenon.
This web site contains a sampling of Dr. Zemlin's photographic
slides of the larynx, central nervous system, skull and respiratory
system. It was his desire to share this information with others
in speech and hearing science and related professions.
This set of slides, which includes slides taken at the University
of Illinois, was developed when he was a visiting professor in
the School of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology at Memphis
State University (now known as the University of Memphis) and
was sponsored by the Center for Research Initiatives and Strategies
for the Communicatively Imparied (CRISCI). Facilities and anatomical
specimens were provided by the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology
of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis,
Tennessee. Fang-Ling Lu (all slide groups) and Rebecca Taylor
(Respiratory System slides only) were graduate students of Dr.
Zemlin at the time and assisted in the dissection and preparation
of the anatomical specimens. Permission to post these slides and
the photographs of Dr. Zemlin at this site have been obtained.
You are encouraged to use this site for individual educational
