An Offer: Explore the Philip S. Hench Walter Reed Yellow Fever Collection
The Philip S. Hench Walter Reed Yellow Fever Collection holds a vast wealth of information and viewpoints; through the years it has illuminated many faceted views of this important time in our history and given insight into the lives of the “fever fighters.” We invite you to explore more of these important documents and find additional stories online through the U.S. Army Yellow Fever Commission exhibit, one of more than thirty exhibits on the history of the health sciences at the University of Virginia and around the world.
Much of the Philip S. Hench Walter Reed Yellow Fever Collection is freely available through the University of Virginia Library’s online catalog. Researchers can search the collection finding aid using keywords and facets to find specific materials or browse the digital collection like they would with the original materials in an archive’s reading room.
We also invite you to visit Historical Collections & Services in the Claude Moore Health Sciences Library, the University of Virginia, Charlottesville.
