**Apologies for cross-posting**

Dear all,

I am very happy to share the news of Dr. Yale Rosen's donation of images to Wikimedia Commons. He had shared over 2000 images related to pathology, many of which are rare images, during his long career as a pathologist. He used to run two Flickr streams, one for Atlas of Medical Foreign Bodies and other for pulmonary pathology images. I had first approached Dr. Rosen for donating a few images, but he kindly offered to donate his entire collection of approximately 2000 images plus the contents from his pathology website for use on Wikimedia projects. He had shared several images under CC-BY-SA or lower in the past, and User: CFCF had uploaded them to Commons in 2014. This month, he moved his entire collection to CC-BY-SA, giving me the possibility to upload around 1000 images to Commons. All images from Dr. Rosen's Flickr streams are now available on Wikimedia Commons here

Please feel free to engage in categorizing, adding structured data and uptaking these images to Wikimedia projects.Kindly write to me if you have any questions or comments.
