The Charity Hospital Reports were digitized by the Rudolph Matas Library of the Health Sciences of Tulane University under a NLM grant awarded August 2010-April 2011 in a project titled Early Medical Journalism of Louisiana, A pilot project for the preservation and sharing of Nineteenth Century Medical Publications of Louisiana [National Library of Medicine (NLM) Prime Contract No. N01-LM-6-3505; HHSN276200663505C]. Digitized reports begin with those published in 1842 by the Louisiana as state government reports. The reports contain morbidity and mortality information for New Orleans, including the yellow fever epidemics, venereal disease statistics along with physician information. The digitized reports are also available in The Internet Archive.
