The following resources were created as part of the 2013 Centennial Celebration for the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. They were authored in partnership with the Center for the History of Medicine, but are maintained by the Harvard Chan School on their website.
In September 2019, processing archivist Hanna Clutterbuck-Cook created an interactive timeline of the school’s history (featuring the deanship, departmental name changes, chairs, and major historic events at the school). It is freely available to view online. Click the link above, or the image below (which will expand into a full screen, and then can zoom in/out). Please note: this timeline is large and difficult to print. We recommend viewing it online.
A brief history of the Deans of the Harvard Chan School is accessible from their website.
To see video interviews featuring the perspectives of past deans, please see Perspectives from Past Deans (maintained on the Harvard Chan School's website).
Many of the records of past deans are accessible through the Harvard Chan Archives at the Center for the History of Medicine. Browse these collections through this libguide here, or submit a question to our reference team through Countway's online form.
