Abstract: This finding aid describes photographs, negatives, and slides depicting Harvard School of Public Health buildings, faculty, and students.

Immediate Source of Acquisition:

This finding aid contains three series of photographs from an artificial collection assembled in the 1960s from the holdings of the Harvard Medical Library and the Boston Medical Library. The photographs are now housed at the Center for the History of Medicine in Countway Library. Images were acquired individually or removed from manuscript or archival collections and filed by subject. Because of this practice, the provenance of many of the images has been lost.

Processing Information:

Processed by Judy Greene, July 2005. Selected information from the image collections management database at the Center for the History of Medicine in Countway Library was exported for inclusion in this finding aid. Formal titles for photographs are used when supplied, otherwise, descriptive titles were created and enclosed in brackets. When possible, images are described as groups rather than individually and representative images selected for viewing on-line. Location number includes size. Images are small (S = 8 x 10 inches or less), medium (M = greater than 8 x 10 inches and less than 11 x 14 inches), or color slides (CS = 35 mm.). A few images have also been cataloged more fully in VIA, Harvard's on-line image database.

Library Digital Initiative Project Description

This finding aid was produced as part of a Library Digital Initiative (LDI) grant project. To provide increased access to visual collections, the LDI project staff described approximately 4100 historical images of Harvard Medical School, Harvard School of Dental Medicine, Harvard School of Public Health, and the Boston Medical Library in a series of OASIS finding aids. Of the images described in these finding aids, 1600 were digitized, stored in the Harvard Digital Repository (DRS), and are viewable online. To provide historical context, the finding aids also include links to digitized pages of Harvard annual reports in the Harvard-Radcliffe Online Historical Reference Shelf.
