Scope and Content

Typescript classification of diseases used to form codes for labelling lantern slides and photographs, the classification is used in the disease index cards below. The classification divides diagnoses into bone, bursae, fasciae, joints, muscles, tendon, skin and subcutaneous tissue, nervous system, and deformities. These are further divided, usually into Disease or Injury, then classified in further detail. It is not apparent when text was first created, but this typescript is an amended version dated January 1938.
