University Libraries receive grant to support “Good Medicine: Greensboro’s Hospitals and Healers, 1865-2015”

The University Libraries at UNCG are partnering with three other area institutions on a project to make the records of the history of medicine in Greensboro – a total of thirteen unique archival collections – better known and more accessible to scholars, students and community researchers.

“Good Medicine: Greensboro’s Hospitals and Healers, 1865-2015” will provide digital access to more than 47,100 items from thirteen archival collections and also from several monographs. The material documents Greensboro’s rich medical history, from its origin in church-housed hospitals during the Civil War and the arrival of Greensboro’s first Catholic hospital, to the development of nursing education programs and large health care providers. Along with institutions, Good Medicine will document the contributions of individuals such as Dr. Anna Gove (one of the first female physicians in North Carolina) and Dr. Wesley Long during the World War I era, as well as the important roles of philanthropists such as Moses H. Cone and Lunsford Richardson. Good Medicine will build on the significant content currently being digitized on the history of the Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital and the correspondence of Dr. Anna Gove. The project is a collaborative effort of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro University Libraries, the Cone Health Medical Library, the Greensboro Historical Museum Archives, and the Greensboro Public Library.
