Gale’s new Public Health Archives has launched its first collection, Public Health in Modern America, 1890‒1970, a chronicle of the historical evolution of America’s public health systems during the 20th century. While numerous digitized medical history collections exist, they lack narrative focus and interdisciplinary interest, until now. Unlike other sources comprising clinical research reports and technical studies, Public Health in Modern America, 1890‒1970 tells a compelling story through rare content, including unpublished reports, correspondence, ephemera, pamphlets, and more.
Hear what people are saying about Public Health in Modern America, 1890‒1970:
“Patrons at academic and health-sciences libraries doing research in the social sciences, public health, the history of science, and medicine will find a great deal of useful material here.”
— Barbara Bibel, Committee Chair, American Library Association
“This is another rich primary source collection from Gale Primary Sources. The materials are ideal for researchers interested in American studies, the history of science and medicine, public health, sociology, political science, psychology, and economics. Researchers will find much to learn about the history and development of U.S. public health policy and the debate surrounding affordable health care.”
— Gricel Dominguez, Librarian, Florida International University Hubert Library
