Newly Digitized Materials Related To Medical Services And Warfare Now Available

Friday, November 3, 2017

Hoover Library & Archives has joined the digital content provider Adam Matthew and renowned archival repositories across the globe in forming a new online digital resource for the study of health and medical services during wartime. Medical Services and Warfare: 1850–1927 gathers material from multiple conflicts and institutions to build a picture of the experience and development of medical practice as influenced by the wars of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The collection draws heavily from Hoover's rich holdings on WWI, particularly holdings related to the Red Cross. Materials in the online repository include hospital reports and registers, correspondence, memoirs and diaries, printed books and periodicals, photographs, maps, charts, and hospital plans.
