Historical Note

President Reagan declared the year beginning October 1, 1986 as National Institutes of Health Centennial Year. NIH celebrated the centennial during NIH Alumni Weekend, October 15-18, 1987, after holding an open house to the staff and public on October 4-5. During Alumni Weekend a special commemorative ceremony was held October 16 at the Shannon building and a banquet, symposium, and reception took place on October 17.

The National Institutes of Health traces its origin to the Hygienic Laboratory. Established in 1887 under the leadership of Joseph J. Kinyoun as the Laboratory of Hygiene, it originated at Staten Island's Marine Hospital. Upon relocating to Marine Hospital Service Headquarters in Washington, D.C. in 1891, it was renamed the Hygienic Laboratory. The Marine Service merged into the newly created Public Health Service in 1912. In 1930 the Hygienic Laboratory was renamed the National Institute of Health, constituting the first of many Institutes.


Collection consists mostly of photographs and accompanying 35mm negatives taken during NIH Centennial activities during 1987. The texts of four speeches delivered on October 16, 1987 are the collection's only documents. Some of the photographed activities are represented among five videocassettes, which also cover some news items promoting the centennial.
