Guide to the Eva J. Salber Papers, 1937-1990

Collection Overview

The Salber Papers span the years 1937 to 1990, with the bulk of the papers dating from 1967 to 1990. The collection contains correspondence; financial papers; writings and speeches; clippings; photographs, many by Dominic D'Eustachio; reports; minutes; scrapbooks; training manuals; student papers; printed material; and lecture notes chiefly relating to Salber's publications, teaching career, and work as a community health physician. Publications highlighted include Caring and Curing(New York, N.Y., 1975); Don't Send Me Flowers When I'm Dead (Durham, N.C., 1983), containing interviews with the rural elderly in Durham County, N.C.; and The Mind is Not the Heart(Durham, N.C., 1989). Her work in the community health field is documented primarily in her writings, the papers about the Martha M. Eliot Family Health Center, and the Health Facilitator Program, which was administered through the Duke University Medical Center Department of Community and Family Medicine. Outgrowths of the Health Facilitator Program are featured in the information about the Health and Human Services Program of the General Baptist State Convention of North Carolina. Other topics include smoking research among young people, teacher and student relationships, and the financing of community health service projects. The collection contains few personal papers and little information about Salber prior to 1967. Explanatory notes by Salber scattered throughout the collection offer insights rarely available in manuscript collections.

Salber's work as a community health physician is reflected primarily in the Writings and Speeches Series, Martha M. Eliot Family Health Center Series, and Duke University Medical Center Series. The Health Facilitator Program represented in the Duke University Medical Center Series is well described. One of its unique features was to identify lay persons within a community to aid health professionals in their work. Serving as a paradigm for other programs, there is data about some of them in the Health Facilitator Program Outgrowths Series.

The collection contains extensive information about Salber's work Don't Send Me Flowers When I'm Dead, including interviews on audiocassettes, typed transcripts of many interviews, photographs of some of the persons interviewed, as well as correspondence and reviews pertaining to the book's publication. Information regarding this publication as well as others are found in the Writings and Speeches Series. Information relating to Salber's teaching is found chiefly in the Teaching Files Series and the Student Files Series. Papers concerning smoking research are found in the Project Files Series, while those respecting the financing of community health service projects are found in the Financial Papers: Funding Series.
