    Scope and Content of Collection

    Charts listing various diseases with number of cases reported indicated by pinholes in the charts. The charts are undated and presumably represent annual statistics, but the high incidence of influenza on one of them suggests the date of the epidemic, 1918, for one of them. Other common diseases with high incidence are measles and mumps, but a large number of diseases are recorded.
