Description:

The History of Medicine division of The National Library of Medicine has been responsible for a number of fine online digital collections, and this latest one is no exception. The Medicine in the Americas website provides access to a number of key primary historical documents that deal with a number of areas, such as women’s health, public health, and clinical works of enduring historical value. Currently, there are a total of eight works in the archive, and they include Clara Barton’s “The Red Cross of the Geneva Convention” from 1878 and L. Emmett Holt’s 1894 work “The Care and Feeding of Children: A Catechism for the Use of Mothers and Children’s Nurses”. For many of the generally curious and those with a penchant for the world of medical and scientific history, this website will be quite a find.
