Primary Sources, Colonial Public Health

Dear All, 

I am preparing a syllabus on medicine and empire and am looking for suggestions of primary sources (in English) to be used in class pertaining to public health measures and campaigns in 19th or early 20th century empires (including U.S. colonies).  I am particularly looking for sources related to criminality and/or reproductive health.  Any suggestions of individual sources or sourcebooks will be greatly appreciated; visual sources such as photographs would be helpful as well.

CFP: Pre-modern Environment and Disease

Routledge is putting together on environmental history in the pre-modern era (roughly defined as 500-1800), aimed at advanced undergraduate and early postgraduate students. I post this CFP on behalf of Lori Jones, who's been asked to produce an edited volume that includes a blend of historiographical chapters and new research in the field of pre-modern environment and disease.
