The National Wetlands Inventory records, dating from February 1971 to November 1997, consist of primarily Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, and selected records from Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Nebraska, Texas, as well as a few Midwestern military base locations. Most folders consist of an aerial photo transparency from National High Altitude Photography (NHAP) and the National Aerial Photography Program (NAPP) and the National Wetlands Inventory (NWI) original delineations taped over each photo drawn on Mylar. Included in most folders is a USGS 7.5 minute topographic quadrangle. In some cases, there are notes related to the creation of the NWI map on separate paper. In other cases, the notes are made on the topographic quadrangles themselves.

This collection contains professional and personal papers of Jacques M. May when he was the director of the Medical Geography Department at the American Geographical Society.

Medical statistics, preliminary maps, epidemiology of diseases, bibliographies, and academic studies of diseases are included as research for the Atlas of Disease. The Atlas of Disease was originally to contain 25 plates; only 17 were published. Each plate corresponds to a specific disease, or group of diseases. Other professional activities of Jacques M. May are documented in the collection, along with a small amount of personal correspondence and family photographs.

What are finding aids?
Finding aids are records that describe collections and what they contain.
People who work at an institution that owns collections write the finding aids, and the
institution contributes finding aids to ArchiveGrid. We provide links to websites
for the departments which manage their institution's finding aids, so you can contact
them when you read a finding aid and want more information about something inside
the collection that interests you.
