From the Archives: Online Exhibit Features Historic Materials

A new online exhibit, “The White Plague in the City of Angels,” created by Caroline Luce of the UCLA Mapping Jewish Los Angeles Project, includes a section on the early history of City of Hope.  The exhibit focuses on the history of tuberculosis treatment in Los Angeles, and features institutions that offered care to individuals suffering from “the white plague.”

The Archives provided research materials and historic photographs for the exhibit.
