Series Accession 2021-M-0011: Additional material, 1978 - 1996
Scope and Contents
This accession contains files relating to efforts, begun in 1988, by the Museum of the City of New York to create an exhibit and a book on the history of epidemics in New York City. Hansen was directly involved in both efforts. The book was published eventually, and the exhibit was not shown. The accession also includes materials documenting a movement in the late 1980s for academic fields (in Hansen's case history), to take responsibility for bringing the then-new AIDS epidemic into their purview. Hansen organized the first panel on AIDS at the American Historical Association. Also included is a U-matic tape of a recording of Hansen interviewed for Binghamton, New York local television in 1978, along with a VHS tape.
