Hudson Photographs and Papers date from the 1920s to late 1950s, and consist of black-and-white photographs and negatives of people in Syria with non-venereal syphilis relating to Hudson's research on this topic in the early twentieth century, as well as galley proofs of maps, charts, graphs, and tables from his book Non-Venereal Syphilis: A Sociological and Medical Study of Bejel (1958). Many of the photographs also appear in this book. Acquired as part of the History of Medicine Collections at Duke University.
