To most at City of Hope January 1, 2013 marks the beginning of our centennial. Our participation in the Rose Parade officially announced that we are one hundred years old. The Archives became involved in the centennial in 2009, when discussions began regarding how to celebrate this important milestone. Since then, archives resources have been heavily mined, both in terms of providing visuals but also for research purposes to help us understand and communicate our history.
The centennial website at http://www.cityofhope100.org/ provides a glimpse into how collections are used. Along with photos, research done in the historic publications and records inform the text. Picture the Past articles from City News are also available.
This photo of an exhibit and nurses is included in the section called Our Compassionate Culture. The photo originally appeared in the June 1966 issue of Scope and comes from the Medical Arts/Creative Services photo collection.
