Index and links to the Schedules depicting the findings of Dr. D. Fraser, Thomas Hughes, and J. M. Ludlow, house inspectors tasked by the General Board of Health on 8 September 1854 to investigate the “Outbreak of Cholera in the sub-districts of Berwick Street, Golden Square, and St. Anne’s.”
Although these Schedules are printed in the Appendix to CSI (1855), 323-52, I have yet to find a digitized copy on the internet that fully depicts any of them. For example, the person who scanned the copy available via the link on the John Snow Archive & Research Companion did not unfold the Schedules, so only portions are legible. Hence, several years ago I asked Nigel Paneth, Department of Epidemiology at Michigan State University, for help. He made arrangements to have the Department produce PDFs and paper copies from the Schedules in his personal copy of the Appendix to CSI for their use and mine, as well as giving me permission to post them.
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 Schedules 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 Schedules 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.
By comparison, my task is much simpler. I only have to process the PDFs that Jayne sent me in Photoshop to increase the resolution for Web viewing. Simple, but time-consuming, so I will update the following street index with media links as I complete them. Once a Schedule appears in the viewer, I have found it helpful to increase the zoom until the print is sufficiently legible.
