Publication Date



A public health survey by two students named E. D. Taylor and E Ricen for the Oregon City Oregon area from 1930 to 1931. Information includes history of the settlement; vital statistics; communicable and venereal disease; sanitation of milk, water, and schools; disposal of garbage and sewage; industry; housing; and civic and non-affiliated organizations. Pamphlets on page 58 are not scanned because excess glue made digitizing impossible. Page 59 is not included because digitization has already been carried out elsewhere.
