George E. Palade EM Slide CollectionWeb Link
The George Pallade collection includes early electron micrographs from Rockefeller University and Yale University. Many of the images are significant for their contribution to our understanding of cellular structure and processes. The images were used in the cell biology courses at Yale University by Drs. George Palade and Marilyn Farquhar. It was Dr. Palade's wish that the collection of images be freely available to students and scientists world-wide.

A study of tissue culture cells by electron microscopy: Methods and preliminary observations.Web Link
The first electron microscope image of an intact cell at a magnification of 1600x. The image reveals mitochondria, the Golgi apparatus and a "lace-like reticulum" which was later named the "endoplasmic reticulum" by Keith Porter. The work was a collaboration between Albert Claude and Keith Porter from the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research and Earnest Fullam of the Interchemical Corporation. the original publication is available in online.
