|Abstract:||<p>This book focuses on the children of Hamilton during the early 1900s and the afflictions from which they suffered and died. Topics include the living conditions in Hamilton at the time, the experiences of the city's children, the geographic and demographic distribution of childhood diseases, municipal strategies implemented to combat illness, various treatments used during the period, and the ways in which children's deaths were memorialized. This story of childhood diseases in Hamilton, told by a class of fourth year Anthropology students at McMaster University, sheds light on the lives and deaths of children, and the obstacles they faced in order to survive their early years.</p>|
