My masters thesis addresses the topic of public health politics in San Francisco, California, during the 1900 bubonic plague outbreak. It examines the history of federal and state quarantine inspection politics leading up to the political crisis which accompanied the arrival of plague in San Francisco. This study explores the inherent nature of the struggle, as well as the particular personal and political interests of the parties to the conflict. You can read a summary of the study here.
Public Health Politics and the San Francisco Plague epidemic of 1900-1904 was judged an "Outstanding Thesis for the College of Social Sciences, 2002-2003" at San Jose State University. This work was produced with the support of the 2001 Mildred Gentry Winters Graduate Scholarship and the 2001 Lyle V. Burmahln Memorial Fellowship. Enjoy!
