Collection Number: 446
Collection Name: Index-Catalogue of Medical and Veterinary Zoology Card Catalog
Linear Feet: 2126
Collection Description: In 1891, USDA Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI) employee Albert Hassall developed a system of recording references for parasitology-related resouces on index cards. He created three sets of cards: parasite subjects, parasites' hosts, and authors. BAI employees continued using Hassall's system and his cards became the nucleus of the Index-Catalogue of Medical and Veterinary Zoology. The Index-Catalogue became the world's largest resource of published literature on human and animal parasitology. These original catalog cards predate the publication Index-Catalogue of Medical and Veterinary Zoology by Charles Wardell Stiles and Albert Hassall, published in U.S. Department of Agriculture Bureau of Animal Industry Bulletin, no. 39., 1902-1912 (1 An5B no. 39). The publication Index-Catalogue of Medical and Veterinary Zoology: Authors by Albert Hassall and Margie Potter, 1932, constitutes a revision and continuation of Bulletin 39 (1 An5Ind).
