This 2005 exhibition provided a broad overview of this state's medical
history by highlighting some of the common ailments that afflicted
our ancestors, as well as some of the deadly epidemics they faced.
Together, these highlights introduced visitors to the multitude
of references in the University Library that are available to researchers
interested in the evolution of public health care.
