Notes:
The response to the AIDS epidemic that began in the early 1980s came from many public and private organizations, some internationally known like the Red Cross, and some at the local level such as the Whitman-Walker Clinic in Washington, D.C. Many organizations produced a variety of pamphlets, studies and reports dealing with all aspects of the disease. This collection contains many of these printed materials, collected by the National Museum of American History's Division of Science, Medicine and Society.
Summary:
The collection contains a large amount of printed material representing how HIV/AIDS was depicted in popular culture, in the medical sciences, by activist groups, and by government agencies. Included are pamphlets, brochures, reports, and other educational material designed to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS in the general public. Also includes correspondence and conference proceedings relating to Curator Ray Kondratas's research into the history of HIV/AIDS, and a number of bibliographies and resource guides related to HIV/AIDS. Most of the materials are from the Washington D.C. area, with New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, as well as Lithuania and London.
