Historical Image Collection now available online

At long last, the inventory for one of our most heavily used collections, the Historical Image Collection, has been made available online in PDF format. Now, without contacting us directly or coming to the History of Medicine Room in person, researchers can determine whether the collection holds anything of interest for their projects. The inventory is regularly updated as photographs are received, so check back periodically for new listings.

Of course, the HIC is not the only collection containing photographs. Archival collections with significant image components have photograph indexes, also made available in PDF on our Archives web site as collections are processed.

We welcome questions about images of people, places, or subjects that do not appear on our various inventories; oftentimes if we do not have a particular photo, we can direct researchers to other repositories.
