Sponsored by the Kentucky State Department of Health and the Kentucky Medical Association, the collection documents medicine and its development in Kentucky. The collection includes bibliographical references and transcriptions of secondary sources, but the wealth of the collection lies in the primary source material gathered in hours of interviews with medical providers and their families. Since the project used a broad definition of medical providers to encompass not only physicians, dentists, nurses, but also folk remedy practitioners, and even quacks, the files are rich in details about rural and urban medicine and health practices in the mid-20th-century Kentucky. The collection also has been microfilmed and is available at the University Archives.
