Public Health Collections at the Center for the History of Medicine
Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, one of the oldest and most influential schools of public health in the United States, has yielded a rich archives related not only to the evolution of the school itself, but to the broader development of national and international twentieth-century public health efforts.
In 2014, the school partnered with the Center for the History of Medicine to fund a full-time archivist dedicated exclusively to identifying and collecting public health collections. This unique partnership has resulted in an expanding number of collections related specifically to the school, including deans, departmental records, and key faculty collections in disciplines ranging from industrial hygiene, nutrition, and community mental health through such international concerns as tropical medicine and global health.
