History Day Showcases NIH AIDS Research
  NIH historian Dr. Victoria Harden
For a historian interested in medicine's response to the emergence of HIV/AIDS, there could probably have been no greater vantage point than the NIH intramural program in the early to mid-1980's. Dr. Victoria Harden, founding director of the Office of NIH History in the Office of Communications and Public Liaison, found herself in this privileged position, having arrived on campus in 1984. At the third annual NIH History Day on Sept. 22, she treated a Lipsett Amphitheater audience to an overview of NIH's assault on AIDS.
