A preliminary version of this Web site, hosted by the Department of Epidemiology at Michigan State University, became operational in 2003. Howard Brody wrote the content for the navigation pages, Mark Watrich designed the site, and Peter Vinten-Johansen and Karl Meisel produced the data content.
The John Snow Archive and Research Companion now uses KORA, an Open Source, database driven, online digital repository that allows our researchers to ingest, manage, and deliver digital texts and their corresponding metadata. All the texts within Snow's Works, Snow's Contemporaries, Interpretive Studies, and the Bibliography section are displayed from KORA and searchable through the online Document Search.
