Rochester General Hospital (Rochester, NY 14621-3095)
Kathleen Britton (Project Director: May 2017 to present)

Baker-Cederberg Archival Collection Preservation

The purchase of preservation supplies for rehousing 211 linear feet of historical records documenting the development and expansion of health care, nursing education, and philanthropy in Rochester, New York, from the mid-19th century to the present. The sources originate with Rochester General Hospital, its precursor, Rochester City Hospital, and its associated School of Nursing. Highlights include materials pertaining to two military medical units the hospital partnered with during the first and second World Wars as well as records of groups such as the Rochester Female Charitable Society and the Board of Lady Managers, depicting the role of women in the operation of the hospital.

The Baker-Cederberg Archival Collection chronicles the history of Rochester City and Rochester General Hospitals, as well as the related School of Nursing, from 1847 to the present. The proposed project will allow us to rehouse all materials in the collection, including specialized housing for more delicate materials. It will also allow us to integrate organized backlogged material into the collection.
