Open Archive: Princeton’s Pills and Practitioners

Tuesday, May 19, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Did you know that the Spanish flu pandemic led to the establishment of Princeton Hospital? Stop by the Discovery Center to explore documents and objects that tell the story of early healthcare in Princeton, from its local pharmacies to its 100-year old hospital.

The Historical Society of Princeton’s Open Archive series allows visitors to interact with little-seen artifacts and documents from its vast collection. Featuring a different theme each time, these events present historical material with minimal interpretation and encourage visitors to make observations, ask questions, and be the historian themselves. HSP’s curator of collections and research will be on hand to share information and answer questions.

Presented in partnership with the library and the Historical Society of Princeton. Photo courtesy of Historical Society of Princeton.
