Texas Infectious Disease Data

This project was undertaken to make the historical data on infectious diseases in Texas readily available to scholars, public health professionals and the public. These documents describe the changing face of infectious disease since the 1920's.

All documents were scanned on a Sharp AR-355-N scanner using Sharpdesk v3.1 software. Thanks to David McLellan and the DSHS library staff for the use of their equipment. Optical character recognition (OCR) was done using Adobe Acrobat Professional version 6.0.5. Most documents are searchable. Note, blank pages in the original document were omitted.

Note: This is all the data available in terms of historical reference. Should the reader have any of the reports missing from this archive, or other historical documents, please contact the Infectious Disease Prevention Section if you would like to contribute to this project.
Additionally, if you are unable to use the data here as it is presented, please contact the Infectious Disease Prevention Section for assistance
