Charleston County Health Department Photograph Collection

About this collection

The Charleston County Health Department Photographs, circa 1930 to 1950, document the activities of the department and staff. Images include a combination of candid and staged photographs about activities such as maternal and child health programs, health education, treatment clinics, midwifery instruction, environmental sanitation and inspection of privies, farms, grocery stores and restaurants, public health initiatives targeting tuberculosis, typhus, and sexually transmitted diseases, and administrative activities for offices such as the Office of Vital Statistics. Images document the department's activities in Charleston County's rural and urban communities. Several of the images were used in A quarter of a century of public health, written by Leon Banov for the Charleston County Department of Health (Charleston, S.C.: Walker, Evans, and Cogswell, 1945).
