This essay describes archival materials related to malaria control campaigns carried out by the International Health Board (IHB) of the Rockefeller Foundation (RF) in the United States and Mexico from about 1918 until the early 1940s. While I focus primarily on material held at the Rockefeller Archive Center (RAC), I provide some discussion of relevant materials held elsewhere. The research presented here is part of my dissertation project, which explores the political logic of disease control in the pre-World-War-II US South and in mid-twentieth century Mexico. The RAC was an ideal source for the project, owing to the important, albeit different roles that the IHB played in public health efforts in both countries.
