Our History with Tuberculosis

March 24, 2016

As you may already know, City of Hope was originally founded as a sanatorium for the treatment of tuberculosis patients back in 1913. It wasn’t until 1946 that Samuel H. Golter’s proposal to transform the sanatorium into a national medical center was approved. The name of the institution was officially changed to “City of Hope” in 1949. In honor of National Tuberculosis Day this #TBT is in celebration of the very beginning of City of Hope’s history.

Stamp from Los Angeles SanatoriumThis tag, which is part of the City of Hope Archives’ collection, states “Help Save a Life: Fight Tuberculosis.” These types of tags would have been used to help raise awareness of tuberculosis and assist with raising money to help treat patients.

For more information about City of Hope’s history, stop by the library and check-out the 1954 and 2002 editions of Samuel H. Golter’s book, The City of Hope.
