Good Samaritan Hospital records now accessible online

The Good Samaritan Hospital records, 1889-1956 (47M84) have been digitized and are now available via ExploreUK.

The records (.5 cubic feet, 1 box, 5 oversize folders; dated 1889-1956) comprise a small group of records and architectural drawings from Good Samaritan Hospital in Lexington, Ky. The records include an account book of the Protestant Infirmary (1889-1897); Good Samaritan treasurer’s reports (1908-1911); financial and capital campaign records (1901-1913); newspaper clippings (1929-1953); and records documenting the involvement of George Weeks and Christ Church Cathedral (Lexington, Ky.) in the hospital’s finances (1956). The five sets of architectural drawings on vellum (primarily dated 1905-1906) include complete sets for the Colored Ward, Nurses House, and the Main Building (both drawn by Anderson & Faig). The drawings also include blueprints for alternations and additions to the hospital, dated June 15, 1928, and drawn by Clifford R. Reichert for Starks Building, Louisville, Ky.
