Waynesboro Community Hospital scrapbook
This collection contains one National Hospital Day Scrapbook from the Waynesboro Community Hospital. This scrapbook was compiled by the staff of the Waynesboro Community Hospital documenting its community outreach as part of National Hospital Day. It consists of fifty leaves with a blend of ephemeral clippings, correspondence, and original photography. Included are eight original photographs as well as illustrated seals, brochures, buttons, a menu, and clippings among other material. The photographs document staff, auxiliary leaders, and window views including then state of the art blood transfusion equipment. Correspondence from the hospital's director A. Edward Hudson, to the head of the Grace Hospital in Richmond, Va. O.K. Fike (the original recipient of this scrapbook), highlights in detail the planning of promotional material, and the success of these Hospital Day efforts in gaining public trust and interest in the hospital services, especially blood collection.
