This paper describes the California Sanitation Exhibit, a railroad care outfitted for instruction in public health that toured California in 1909 and 1910.
The sanitation exhibit used diplay models, photographs, and lectures to educate the public about tuberculosis and other infectious diseases, waste contamination, and the dangers of bad milk.
The success of the exhibit, which reached 5% of the state's population, resulted in the appointment of its creator, William Freeman Snow, as secretary of the California State Board of Health.
