There are many similar types of photos from the Linda Neville Papers at the University of Kentucky Special Collections showing the treatment of blindness and diseased eyes. Some come from the U.S. Public Health Service. These include a restricted subseries of identified patients. There are lantern slides from the American Red Cross as well - and may be the same ones that Neville used in 1912 when invited by Dr. F Park Lewis, of the New York Society for the Prevention of Blindness, to speak to the American Medical Association. See the announcement regarding the digitization of the Neville photographs: "Linda Neville Photographs Digitized," Curiosities & Wonders, September 16, 2015.
