The Politics of Yellow Fever in Alexander Hamilton’s America
Tuesday, September 01, 2020 - Friday, September 25, 2020
Yellow fever ravaged Philadelphia in 1793. The deadly disease touched nearly everyone in the city: young and old, white and African American, wealthy and poor, religious and secular. Temple University's Health Sciences Libraries and the Center for Urban Bioethics are pleased to bring you this website about the politics of yellow fever including a link to a virtual exhibit curated by the National Library of Medicine. We have planned exciting online programming around the themes of this exhibit: politics, race, and citizenship in healthcare.
This exhibit was initially intended to make a stop at Temple University’s Ginsburg Health Sciences Library during September 2020. In light of the coronavirus pandemic, traveling exhibits were paused.
