Hospital archivist works to record all that is the hospital

Photos, meeting notes, department records, publications, correspondence — these are just a few of the items that Susan Dee (left), hospital archivist, collects. Working with intern Caitlin Costa, Dee actively solicits materials that describe the unique contributions made by hospital staff and physicians to medicine, nursing and allied fields. She works in the basement of the Clinic Building where she carefully catalogues materials that may someday serve as the basis for a display like the one she did last year that illustrated the hospital during the Civil War or the current one that highlights the histories of YNHH and the Hospital of Saint Raphael, which is now part of YNHH. Dee also answers questions from researchers about hospital firsts and historical developments. Employees who have something that may be of interest to a future audience should contact Dee at susan.dee@ynhh.org.
