The collection consists of the records of Jewish Hospital, which opened in Louisville, Kentucky, in 1905. The papers, dating from 1905 to 2008, consist primarily of board and committee meeting minutes, administrative and financial records, fundraising materials, correspondence, federal grant applications, publications, and scrapbooks. Most of the early records of Jewish Hospital were lost when the Ohio River flood of 1937 destroyed papers stored in the hospital’s basement. As of 2018, the Filson Historical Society has acquired the administrative papers of Jewish Hospital up through the year 1980.
