Identifier: 5
The "Events" series documents 12 events and/or projects in relative detail. Events or projects which are particularly well documented include: "A Melancholy Scene of Devastation": The Public Response to the 1793 Philadelphia Yellow Fever Epidemic, 1993; Disease and Society in the Developing World: Exploring New Perspectives, An International Conference, 1992; Ethics Committee Project, 1986 to 1990; Hippocrates and Modern Medicine, 1996; History of Medicine Seminars, 1983 to 1997; History of Scientific Medicine in Paris, 1790-1850: A Reinterpretation, 1992; Internal Medicine Conference and Publication, "Grand Rounds: One Hundred Years of Internal Medicine," 1988; Conference on Health and Medicine in the Era of Lewis and Clark, 2004; Looking Forward: Women in American Medicine, 1888-1988; 'Say Ahh!:' Examining America's Health, 1995 to 1996; Seeking Common Ground: Law, Medicine, and Patient Care in the 1990s, 1991; and the Social History of Disease, 1988. Almost all of these events are documented via planning documents, budgets, correspondence, speaker information, attendees lists, program descriptions, conference papers, and event ephemera. On several occasions, information regarding sponsors of the event is included.

The History of Medicine Seminar records also contain files on specific speakers, however, the information is frequently inconsistent in depth. Some files contain notes, letters of acceptance, and background writings, while others contain nothing more than a phone message or a list of attendees. The lectures do not appear to exist in these folders.

Miscellaneous events include events that were less well documented, but still include valuable information.

The files in this series will be of interest to researchers studying any of the topics addressed in the events as well as researcher interested in history of medicine conferences and symposia, generally.
