New Image Collections Added to Historic Pittsburgh

We added two new image collections to Historic Pittsburgh from the Library & Archives at the Heinz History Center. The Fuchs Family Papers & Photographs (25 images) primarily depict cadets from St. Joseph's Junior Military School as well as members of the Fuchs family. The Richard E. Rauh Photographs (56 images) primarily depict Bertha Rauh, her family, and her swearing in as Director of Charities, later called the Pittsburgh Department of Public Welfare; others illustrate her efforts to transform Mayview Hospital into a modern psychiatric hospital.
