Archival Research

The Clyde Arbuckle Research Collection housed at the California Room at the San Jose Public Library contains several years of Infirmary Fund receipts. The Infirmary Fund covered the operating costs of the hospital, as well as relief funds given to community members in need. Images taken by Lisa Bright are provided here with the permission of the California Room. Of particular interest are warrants no. 603, 633 and 634 from 1886 which all relate to digging graves, opening graves, and burying indigents.
