Images from the History of Leprosy


Child patients and staff (also patients) at Robben Island Leprosy Hospital, South Africa, circa 1920. This photo is from an album that belonged to Dr. Hans Peter Lie (1862-1945), a distinguished Norwegian leprologist, founding member of the board of the ILA, and an Associate Editor of the JOURNAL. This is a digital copy of the original black and white print in the collection of the Leprosy Museum in Bergen, Norway, a part of the Bergen Leprosy Archives, and of the UNESCO program 'Memory of the World'. It was made available courtesy of Sigurd Sandmo, Curator.
