We showcased two maps from the David Rumsey Map Collection as part of our newsletter. We'll be doing more of these every month, so if you like to subscribe, please send us an e-mail to rumseymapcenter@stanford.edu with subject, "please add to me mailing list."

Hi all:

I do not mean to self-promote in any way, but I have written about the American Geographical Society's Atlas of Disease project from the 1950s--from a rhetorical standpoint. Within my article are some potentially helpful scans of some of the most important maps from that project.

Hi Jordana,
Perhaps the most popular is John Snow's mapping of cholera in London in 1854. Here there is one HGIS project based on Snow's map.

Query: Maps and Disease -- Maps and Economic Crisis -- global examples to share with history students?

Colleagues,
I write to the more than 500 of you (map historians, makers, curators, librarians and archivists, students, collectors, and lovers) who have joined H-Maps since last October with a request for global web-based stories or maps that engage with the intersection of maps and disease or maps/mapping and economic crisis to share with students. Please reply here or write me, and I'll compile and share the answers with the list.  Podcasts, social media posts, videos, or links to maps or articles -- not just in English -- all welcome.
