Mrs. Henry Lester Smith collection

 Collection — Folder: S1204
Identifier: S1204

Scope and Contents

Dr. J. N. Hurty, Pharmacy Department Secretary of the Indiana State Board of Health in Indianapolis, wrote to Mrs. H. L. Smith, Bloomington, Indiana, on April 5, 1918. He told Mrs. Smith that the "only way in which you can secure a census of the children under 5 years of age is to actually take such a census." He suggested that high school boys and girls be enlisted for this survey of homes to determine children from birth to age five. He told her that their office only recorded births and deaths, so he could not provide the information she requested. The letter is one page and neatly typed by secretary LL.
