Photographic Prints, (1956, 1970-1988) [series]:

This series consists of photographs of Dr. Wilson, individually or in groups; individuals with which he was associated; and scenes of buildings or subjects with which Dr. Wilson was connected. The photographs are arranged alphabetically by the name of the individual or object photographed. Pictures of buildings are identified by institutional affiliation. A substantial amount of photographs depict Dr. Wilson's swearing-in as the Administrator of Health Services and Mental Health Administration (HSMHA), the Department of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW) in 1970. The Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare, Elliott Richardson, appears in photographs with Dr. Wilson on numerous occasions. Additionally, the series contains a portrait of Caspar Weinberger (ca. 1972) from the HSMHA period. As a representative of the University of Kansas on the 1956 Midshipman Training Cruise, Dr. Wilson received a photograph of the Battleship U.S.S. Des Moines on which he sailed to commemorate the occasion. Photographs of the HSMHA's eight Public Health Service Hospitals (ca. 1971), snapshots of sections of the Vanderbilt Clinic in 1988, and the groundbreaking of the University of Missouri Truman Medical Center in 1977 are among some of the other photographs in this series.
