Historical New England Medical Center Archives

  • Doctors and Nurses at the Onshore Department of the Boston Floating Hospital

As of July 2013, DCA is preserving the historical New England Medical Center (NEMC) Archives for the Tufts Medical Center located in Boston, MA.

The collection consists of the archives for NEMC, Inc., Tufts-New England Medical Center (T-NEMC) Inc., Boston Dispensary, Boston Floating Hospital, Pratt Clinic/New England Center Hospital, Bingham Associates Fund, and their affiliates. Materials date from 1894 to the early 1990s and include records, personal papers, photographs, slides and negatives, audiovisual media, sound recordings, and a few artifacts. The collection is open for research except for personally identifiable information (including those protected by HIPA and FERPA) and records that are less than 20 years old.

After extensive conservation treatment, the approx. 500 linear feet of historical records are currently being processed. In the meantime we have created a box level inventory of the unprocessed records before conservation treatment; please contact us and we will gladly send you a copy of the inventory for your research.

If you are interested in the above institutions, the following materials are already available for research:
