[Marriottville, MD]: [1944-1960). Oblong folio in three quarter brown leather with brown cloth boards. Leather and covers are mildly chipped, bumped, and stained. Some splitting to top joint, but firmly holding. Interior pages are in very good condition. Laid in is a typed letter dated 1954 from William Wilson informing the hospital that the writer will no longer be able to visit the hospital to cut the hair of patients. Also inserted is a small collection of news clippings from 1992 on tuberculosis. Unpaginated [several hundred pages]. Overall, very good. (Item ID: 15951)

A fascinating handwritten record book for several thousand patients treated at the Maryland Tuberculosis Sanatorium for African-Americans. Founded in the early 1920s, it was one of the first facilities established in Maryland to provide black patients with the same level of treatment as white patients. It continued until 1962 when it was converted to the Henryton State Hospital. It closed in 1985 and was torn down in 2013. This folio sized ledger carefully records detailed information for each patient, identified here only by a number. Data includes sex, age, married or single, religion, occupation, county of residence, and length of stay. Includes the patient's disease status when admitted (minimal, moderate, far advanced etc), extent of lesions, condition when discharged (improved, unimproved, died), followed by pulse, temperature, and weight when admitted and when discharged. A thorough and detailed record, worthy of further study.
