Long time officer and servant of the CS&CSS, Florence Wright donates her entire (140+) collection of Saranac Lake/ Trudeau Sanatorium TB postcards to Historic Saranac Lake. These were from Wright's exhibit, "Postcards from the San."
We just received a very pleasing note from the archivist/ curator of "Historic Saranac Lake" about the work she has been doing with those cards. The CS&CSS is delighted!
...the first half of your collection is now transcribed, cataloged, and digitized and included in our online collection database: https://historicsaranaclake.pastperfectonline.com/webobject?utf8=%E2%9C%93&search_criteria=%22Florence+Wright+Tuberculosis+Postcard+Collection%22&searchButton=Search
I know that people are really going to enjoy seeing these cards and learning more from them. We shared about the news in honor of World TB Day (which coincidentally is today!) on social media and our blog so I am sure they will get a lot of hits today: https://www.historicsaranaclake.org/history-matters-blog/tuberculosis-thursday-world-tb-day
I need to finish uploading the entries for the other 70-something cards, so they should be up online next week sometime. I can't thank you enough for your passion for collecting these, and your thoughtfulness in donating them to us. I'll keep you posted as we make them available to the public!
