New Additions to the Website for the Office of the Public Health Service Historian
The Office of the Public Health Service Historian has updated its website to include a number of downloadable images from its collection. The photographs are on the Resources page (under Images and Other Audiovisuals). The photos cover a hundred year span, ranging from the late nineteenth century to the late twentieth century and they are organized in six categories: Research, Health Care, Disease Control, Education, War and Disaster, and Safety.
So far as is known, all of these images are in the public domain and they can be used by students, researchers and teachers. We do ask, however, that users credit the Department of Health and Human Services when using an image. Over the course of the year, more images will be added.
The website contains other resources which can be of help to scholars of both the history of medicine and the history of the federal government. The Resources page (under Printed Materials) has links to articles on subjects ranging from bioterrorism to the militarization of the Commissioned Corps of the Public Health Service. The FAQs page also contains several questions and answers relating to the general history of the Public Health Service.
If you haven't done so already, we hope that you'll visit our site below.
