NEW COLLECTION! LAURA MENTSCH REFERENCE MATERIALS
Over the course of her storied career, Laura Mentsch collected a vast library of reference materials, and has generously gifted important historical texts to WRHA. These books are significant for the information they provide, and also because of the glimpse they offer into reproductive care during particular eras. Texts can be compared across time both for changes in content and also for shifts in emphasis which communicate the context of the reproductive environment of America in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s.
The physical texts are housed in the WRHA collections in Bozeman, Montana, and portions will be made available digitally upon request. However, pdfs of most of these texts are currently available online or through local library resources.
