Children's Mercy Hospital Collection added to UMKC Digital Special Collections

Photographs in the Children's Mercy Hospital Collection are now available in the UMKC Digital Special Collections.

The not-for-profit hospital was founded in Kansas City in 1897 by two sisters, Alice Berry Graham and Katherine Richardson, one a doctor, the other a dentist, to serve the poor and ill children of the area. The hospital grew quickly and expanded to become one of the most important medical resources for children in the region. The collection features photos of patients, staff, and volunteers all through the hospital's history. Photos of the many events held to entertain the children and classroom activities to continue their education provide a glimpse into the day to day life of the children passing through Children's Mercy Hospital.
