1855 - 2006
Extent: 100 linear feet
Established in 1855, the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia was the first hospital in the United States to care exclusively for children, and was key in establishing the foundations of modern day pediatric medicine. Medical staff members at CHOP have been at the forefront of innovation for decades, and their work has had impacts which can be seen to this day, in the form of the Isolette Incubator, the Measles vaccine, and its participation in The Human Genome Project. The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Records (1855 to 2006) extensively documents the activities of the Public Relations and Planning and Development Departments from the early 1960’s to the early 1990’s. The bibliographies, published works, correspondence and interviews with several major figures in pediatric medicine, such as Doctors C. Everett Koop, Jean Cortner, and Gertrude and Werner Henle, can also be found within. An extensive portion of the collection is in non-document form, and consists of bound volumes, photographs, negatives, 35 mm slides, and film reels. (View full finding aid.)
