Found in 1 Collection or Record:

Sydenham Hospital Records

Identifier: MS C 243

The bulk of the collection consists of patient medical case histories. Records are complete for the years 1909 to 1924, but because of the size of the collection, only a sample of every tenth record for the years 1924 to 1949 were retained. From 1909 to its closing in 1949, Sydenham Hospital was maintained by the Baltimore City Health Department for the isolation and treatment of communicable diseases such as polio, diphtheria, measles, scarlet fever, smallpox, and chicken pox.

Dates: 1909-1962
