The archives in the R.A. Williams Library include an interesting mix of resources. These resources span not only the life of FHCHS/ADU (1992 to the present), but include photos, papers and books that date back to the time of the first nursing program on this property, linked with Florida Sanitarium, in the early 1900’s. Resources have been collected, but not necessarily organized. This archives is a work in progress.
