HISTORY

Supervision of the health of Radcliffe College students was originally by the Department of Physical Education. In 1924 the first full-time health consultant was appointed; in 1927 the Department of Health Education was established under the direction of the College Physician, working with the Director of Physical Education and a part-time consultant in Mental Hygiene (1930-1938). The medical offices moved in 1942 and became the Radcliffe College Health Center to provide expanded medical services. The Health Center merged with the Harvard University Health Services in 1961.

SCOPE AND CONTENT

The collection is arranged in four series: 1. Medical records of undergraduates, 1952-1961; 1a. Medical records of Management Training Program students; 2. Medical records of graduate students, 1947-1956; and 3. Administrative records, 1923-1958.
Series 3 of RG XIV, consists of administrative records relating to the Radcliffe College Health Center, including correspondence between doctors and college administrators, meeting minutes, medical and immunization requirements and forms for students, informational guides and pamphlets, and other miscellaneous administrative records.
