Title Record of Contagious Diseases, City of Sioux Falls
Scope & Content A ledger book kept by the City of Sioux Falls to track contagious diseases in the city between 1923 and 1926. The book has hard black covers. Unlike other ledgers of this kind, this ledger does not track specific, more prevalant illnesses. The ledger book simply lists the name of the person who is sick and their age, sex, illness, address, date their illness was reported, when/how/where they contracted the disease, their attending physician, and any other remarks. Only about one quarter of the first part and one quarter of the last part of the book is used.
