Is there some way to search the census by institution?

  • If the institution was it's own Enumeration District, then it's name would be part of that EDs definition.  At our Unified Tool at https://stevemorse.org/census/unified.html you can search for the name.  For example.... the top is 1950 but other census years are there.  Let's say I want to find Hospitals in California.  Pick State: California.  Pick City or Town ..Other (specify).  Enter Hospital in the open box.  See the EDs on the bottom.  Press "More Details" to see their definitions.  The ED numbers are links, eventually, to the first page of the ED.  When I was transcribing streets from ED maps, if I saw an Institution that wasn't it's own ED, I still added that to the ED definition so it could be searched for.  Good luck.
