The following are related to the Archives.org and Google Books searches I performed and reviewed for a number of my pages. This approach played an important role in part of my research on African American history, slavery and medicine, but since has been applied to studying the history of disease mapping and presentation by journal articles and books.
The links that follow are meant to serve primarily as links to key references, not an actual bibliography since it lacks any mention of physical books I own, books referred to in my research notes, and information pulled using the Index-Catalogue of the Surgeon General Office, which perhaps represents half of my work over the past twenty years. For each link to a journal, expect to find even more information with each reference. These cited publications are not in any specific order, such as alphabetically by author or temporally. They are arranged using major topic headings for now. They appear in reverse order to being located, for the most part, and some series of research projects were performed in chronological order.
This bibliography is or will be more refined on the specific pages designed for these topics, such as those found in the African American Slavery section or at the end of certain special topic pages. The maps will be dealt with as a collection, or in some cases separately with their own unique pages. On occasion, a major section has an Archives.org or Google Search provided as well. The map publication searches were usually done in 10 year increments from 1790 to 1930. The following are stored links to many of these references.
