Scope and Contents
The collection consists of slides, photographs, negatives and other materials used in the support of production of The Pacemaker, the general-audience publication of University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC). It is arranged chronologically by year; each folder pertains to the specific issue for that date. For example, materials used in the production of the February 1990 issue are contained in Box 2. Beginning in 2004, digital files are maintained on CDs, replacing the earlier media formats. The collection, used in conjunction with The Pacemaker publication, chronicles research and patient service activity of UIHC.
The Pacemaker was established in 1974 by the Department of Public Information, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. Its intended audience, according to a 1992 editorial statement, is "friends and staff of the [UIHC]."
