What's in the Doctor's Bag?

In 2008, a team of students in the Digital Libraries class at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis team created an online digital library focused on aspects of medical history.  The project offers a glimpse of what a practicing physician carried when making house calls from 1890 - 1910 through a selection of photographs, catalog pages, and other media, with a special focus on implements manufactured and sold by the Wm. H. Armstrong Co, Indianapolis, IN.
