The series documents activities of the Seattle-King County Department of Public Health from 1986 to 1988 under the direction of Bud Nicola. Additional files and documents from the 1970s and 1980s provide background information about department initiatives. The administrative files relate to department divisions, personnel and facilities, and contain memoranda, reports and proposals. There are also documents and articles prepared by specific divisions including Emergency Medical Services, Occupational Health and the Medical Examiner. The project files contain citizen correspondence, interdepartmental memoranda, reports, proposals, internal tracking information, and press releases regarding various department and director concerns. The files address general health issues such as noise, landfills, AIDS, and smoking in the workplace. Other subjects of interest include fallout from the Chernobyl nuclear accident in the Soviet Union, and the 1986 ban on oral medicine capsules following deaths from cyanide found in the aspirin product Excedrin.
