  • Indigenous Peoples: North America covers the historical experiences, cultural traditions and innovations, and political status of Indigenous Peoples in the United States and Canada. Beginning with the sixteenth century and going well into the twentieth century, researchers can access manuscripts, drawings and sketches, photographs, maps, legal materials, population census records, newspapers from various tribes and Indian-related organizations as well as indigenous language materials, including dictionaries, bibles, and primers. Topics of interest include trade and communication, Arctic exploration and tribes, the Iroquois Confederation, Canadian Indian treaty policy, Dawes Severalty and the allotment system, Indian language and linguistics, water and fishing rights, civil rights, the American Indian movement, and much more.

  • Public Health Archives: Public Health in Modern America, 1890-1970 documents the rise of the twentieth-century public health system in the United States through correspondence, reports, pamphlets, ephemera, and more. For scholars in the fields of American history, American studies, history of science and medicine, public health studies, sociology, political science, psychology, and economics, it documents through primary sources that record the evolution and impact of public health legislation, policies, and campaigns at the local, national, and federal levels, opening for researchers a new window on the roles played by key organizations and individuals to advance public health practices and outcomes.
