Two scrapbooks on the Nebraska Hog Cholera controversy of the late 19th century, and an unpublished manuscript on susceptibility and immunity.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.
