In her position of Director of the History of Medicine in Maryland at MedChi, The Maryland State Medical Society, Meg Fairfax Fielding digs deeply into the organization’s archives and collections, which date to its founding in 1799. Several years ago, she began charting what is essentially a family tree of hospitals that operated in Baltimore, which ones disappeared, which ones merged, and which still survive. In this virtual tour, Meg will share some of the more unusual hospitals in Baltimore, as well as a few we all know, complete with historic engravings and photographs, and maybe a few stories!
