Two scrapbooks on the Nebraska Hog Cholera controversy of the late 19th century, and an
unpublished manuscript on susceptibility and immunity.
The scrapbooks were compiled by Salmon from 1886-1893, and document the commentary and
criticism relating to the Hog Cholera epidemic in Nebraska. Many of the articles and
editorials were written by Dr. Frank S. Billings and are highly critical of the response
of the Bureau of Animal Industry, as well as Salmon's leadership.
The manuscript is 268 pages long and in Spanish. It was probably sent to Dr. Simon Henry
Gage for editing some time during Salmon's time in Uruguay.
Also, an article on Salmon from a Hungarian veterinary magazine.
