Chicago Area Medical Archivists Announce New Blog

12 May 2011 2:00 PM | Morgen MacIntosh Hodgetts

The Chicago Area Medical Archivists (CAMA) are proud to announce their new blog! It not only features the usual news and event information, but also serves as a research gateway.

Many of the historical figures in Chicago’s medical history spent their time at more than one institution. The blog’s “Historical Notes” will help researchers and other archivists track down these overlapping collections. Also, “Historical Notes” will be the place to share information about hospitals or medical and nursing schools that have closed or been absorbed by other institutions. This ongoing feature will serve as a “one-stop shop” for these frequently asked questions.

The blog also features “Research Tips.” CAMA members will share their tips on navigating their collections or finding relevant material outside of Chicago.

Please take a look, and let us know what you think. If you would like to contribute to the CAMA blog, please contact CAMA Web Moderator, Nathalie Wheaton, at
