Notes

The Baden-Württemberg Department State Archive, Ludwigsburg State Archive (Landesarchiv Baden-Württemberg, Staatsarchiv Ludwigsburg) contains several holdings that may be relevant for the history of leprosy in the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries.

Finding aids for most of the files are available online.

A full text search for the key words “Lepra”, “Leprosen”, or “Aussätzige” (leprosy, lepers) yields many results (administrative documents, medical reports, and images), including the following:
