Sinai Hospital: A Treasure Trove of Photos

Posted on April 13th, 2017 by

The trove of photos donated to the JMM by the Baltimore Jewish Times is enormous. For the past several months, archives volunteer extraordinaire Marvin Specter has been scanning the images and making them viewable in our collections database, giving access to the images to researchers everywhere -including the JMM staff.

Marvin recently brought me a large folder of photos of Sinai Hospital—images I had not known about while preparing our Beyond Chicken Soup exhibition. I hope you will enjoy this small selection from the folder as much as I did. And please let us know if you are able to name any of the identified people shown in these photos! Email kfalk@jewishmuseummd.org.

Doctors and nurses who covered heads and faces, gloved their hands, draped pristine linens on their patients, and tossed used instruments into sterilized enameled basins marked the up-to-date- surgical procedures at the Hebrew Hospital and Asylum, c. 1920. Gift of the Baltimore Jewish Times, 2012.054.351.017.

This photo by Craig Terkowitz for the Baltimore Jewish Times, identified in the collection only as “generic hospital shot,” was probably taken in the early 1990s. It makes a nice contrast with the one above. Gift of the Baltimore Jewish Times, 2012.054.351.021.
