Albuquerque in the Time of Tuberculosis (Sec. A)

ID : 80299   
« back to classes page
New, or post-railroad Albuquerque, was partially developed by an influx of tuberculosis (TB) patients, also known as lungers. TB was the medical scourge of the 18th and 19thcenturies, and the only known “cure” was high altitude, sunshine and good diet, which the Southwest had in abundance. Several sanatoriums were established here, three of which became full service hospitals; thus, TB affected growth and population. Several well-known people, such as John Gaw Meem, Clyde Tingley, et al., migrated for tuberculosis care and remained to add much to our community and history.
