The 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition, held in St. Louis, Missouri, featured rich and extensive exhibits of social economy and health. Aside from exhibits found in the Education and Social Economy building, there were important related exhibits in the New York City building, the Model Town Hall, the Liberal Arts building, and various foreign buildings. This chapter examines a select group of exhibits related to health and medicine, focusing on the official exhibition theme of “life and motion.” A notable exhibit format was the “Proposed Plan of the Municipal Art and Science Exhibit” by Albert Kelsey, a Philadelphia architect and municipal reformer. There were also exhibits on urban tenements and employer-provided workers’ housing, on hygiene and public health, and on hospital care, mental health, tuberculosis, and pathology/anatomy.
