The four international expositions held between 1876 and 1904 in the United States showcased careful planning and preparation to ensure the public’s health. Applied forms of health and medicine were enacted in the expositions, and medical services were provided to cover the needs of personnel, exhibitors, and visitors and to control the spread of infectious disease.

The shifting nature of expositions blurred the boundaries between commerce, education, and entertainment, presenting additional challenges to exhibitors.
