Index and links to the Tables depicting the findings of Dr. D. Fraser, Thomas Hughes, and J. M. Ludlow, house inspectors tasked by the General Board of Health on 6 September 1854 to investigate the “Outbreak of Cholera in the sub-districts of Berwick Street, Golden Square, and St. Anne’s.”
These Tables (sometimes referred to as Schedules) were printed in Appendix to the Report of the CSI (1855), 323-52 (appendix no. 14). However, I have yet to find a digitized copy of this report on the internet that fully depicts any of the tables. Several years ago I asked Nigel Paneth, Department of Epidemiology at Michigan State University, for help. He made arrangements to have the Department produce paper copies in his personal copy of the Appendix to the Report of the CSI, for their use and mine, as well as giving me permission to post them on this site.
Jayne Goeddeke, Administrative Assistant in the Department of Epidemiology, managed this project. Dominque R. Jones, an undergraduate at MSU, undertook the arduous and tricky task of scanning and printing each of the tables in three parts, lining up the parts and taping them together, before re-scanning them as complete schedules. Most are single sheets of a manageable size, but some of the largest tables had to be duplicated in two parts. Jayne then proofread all tables and sent me written clarifications in the few cases where the print was fuzzy.
I scanned the paper copies as individual, high-resolution PDFs and posted them below. The thirty tables are listed alphabetically, by streets, followed by the date in 1854 (in parentheses) on which inquiries were made, followed by the page number used in the Appendix to the Report of the CSI. Please click on the page number to view that table.
