New Accessions: State of Oregon - Public Health Reports and Studies

Over the past weekend I had the opportunity to visit a donor at their home and go through some public health-related materials.  We ended up transferring roughly one and a half boxes of materials from his basement to my apartment, whereby I brought them by bus up to the archives on Monday.  Included in the donation are records of the Oregon Public Health Association, materials related to the fluoridation campaign in Oregon, and a few years of Oregon Vital Statistics reports.

Materials packed for travel
During the course of the week I received another package of materials from the same donor.  This time we received a wide variety of public health reports and studies in the areas of maternal and childhood health, teen sexual health, infant health and the prevention of child abuse.
Some of the reports from the Oregon Health Authority
For reference, I am including a rundown of the publications received in the most recent transfer:

The records from the Oregon Public Health Association will be processed along with the other materials from the donor, after which a finding aid will be posted on our website.  I am working to bring in the records of OPHA in bulk and will post an update when that is complete.

Till next week!
