Postcard Collection

Postcards offer a rare opportunity to trace the evolution of hospitals, not only as health care providers for the communities they served, but also as major edifices on the architectural horizons of these communities. The postcard collection is comprised of over 2,500 postcards depicting primarily U.S. hospitals, sanitoriums, and other related buildings. The postcard collection is available for on-site viewing by visitors and scholars with assistance from the Resource Center staff. An appointment is required.
