          Dear Ms. Wing,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the General Correspondence, 1890 - 1952 in the Records of the Public Health Service (Record Group 90) that consists of records that document the daily activities of Fort Stanton as a military tuberculosis hospital in New Mexico. The files include correspondence, telegrams, administrative circulars, requisitions, proposals, receipts, engineer's reports, invoices, payroll records, memorandums, patient registers, vouchers, and daily and personnel reports. For more information about these records, please contact the National Archives at Denver (RM-DV) at denver.archives@nara.gov.


          Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RM-DV. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.


          For a brief summary about the hospital, please see The History Of Fort Stanton


          We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
