Description
This collection comprises documents related to the career of Dr. Thomas Brown McClintic, a physician who served in the U.S. Marine Hospital Service from 1898 until 1912, when he died of the disease he had been sent to control. The collection includes approximately 90 photographs that document McClintic's life and experiences—particularly during the Spanish-American War—and more than 100 pages of official correspondence (letters, printed orders, informational circulars) that track his career through numerous postings and promotions, and also reveals the broader concerns of those charged with safeguarding the nation against the spread of epidemic disease in the early 20th century.
