Following graduation, Stucky practiced in Lexington, Kentucky, where he eventually specialized in ophthalmology and otolaryngology. In 1911, Stucky travelled to Hindman in Knott County, Kentucky where he conducted a clinic for trachoma victims at the Settlement School. The high incidence of trachoma in the mountain area of eastern Kentucky led to establishment of a Public Health Service hospital at Hindman in 1913, for which Stucky was in part responsible. This hospital operated until 1916 when it moved to Pikeville, Kentucky after trachoma was effectively eliminated in Knott County.Materials consist of correspondence, photographs, clippings, and published and unpublished articles by Stucky, compiled from various sources by Berea College staff.Included is Stucky's correspondence with the following individuals: Dr. John McMullen, of the Public Health Service; Harriet Butler, staff nurse at Hindman Settlement School; and May Stone, director of the Hindman Settlement School. Letters detail Stucky's initial interest in conducting trachoma clinics in Knott County, his treatment of patients, and his role in the Public Health Service survey of trachoma incidence in Eastern Kentucky (1912). Photographs document Stucky's work in the mountains and include views of clinics at Hindman, patient treatment, clinic staff, and Pine Mountain Settlement School. Photographs are black and white prints along with negatives in various sizes; the majority are unlabelled. The rest of the collection is comprised of publications and copies of articles by Stucky which relate predominately to trachoma, other ophthalmological topics, and nursing.
