Welcome to the LSHTM Archives
At the Archives you can view documents, letters, photographs, maps, publications and objects relating to tropical and infectious diseases and public health issues. The Archives also holds material on the history and development of the School since its foundation in 1899. Our collections date from the mid-nineteenth century and have a global coverage. Key collections include:
- The papers of Sir Ronald Ross, the discoverer of the mosquito transmission of malaria and the first Briton to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine
- The Nutrition collection consisting of historical records relating to scientific investigations in the field of nutrition created and collected by LSHTM staff between the 1920s and 1990s.
- The HIV/AIDS collection consisting of seven collections relating to the discovery, treatment, prevention and research into the disease since the 1980s
A large number of the School's archive collections are now accessible via the archive on-line catalogue.
The Archives Service is also responsible for the management and operation of the Records Management Service, responding to Freedom of Information and Data Protection requests and offering advice on information compliance issues.
Research Data Management is also one of our services as is MediaLibrary which is the School's image management database and enables staff, students and the public to access the School's rich resources of contemporary and historical images.
