In Fall 2016, students in Health and Disease in US History and Science and Society classes learned about health topics through the addition of maps in their classroom. Topics such as malaria, tuberculosis and AIDS were explored through cartographic resources. We will display a sampling of these maps for meeting attendees. Maps on display will include:

·         WWII map showing the spread of malaria, drawn by Dr. Seuss

·         Sanborn fire insurance maps showing the Boulder sanitarium from 1910 and 1931

·         Mining Districts Surrounding the Townsite of Idaho Springs, Situate in Clear Creek County, Colorado, 1881 – showing the healing waters of Idaho Springs and the proposal for a hotel/resort/natatorium situated by the springs.

  • ·         AIDS in LA - 1985

We look forward to seeing you all!
