Scope and content
Accessions received between June 7, 1963 and September 3, 1964 were grouped together by the library staff for reasons that are presently (2001) unknown. There seems to be no unifying characteristic about this particular mass of material other than it all was received from JE during a particular period of time. Included are three short series possibly arranged by JE himself: lectures 1-13 (ca. 1905-1946, Box 14, folders 155-164), manuscripts 1-8 (1905-09, 1929, 1964, Box 14, folders 165-172), WUSM Physiology Journal Club reports (1927-1941, Box 15, Folders 173-189), and various private correspondence and notes (1882-1964, Box 15, Folders 190-198). It should be noted that all the 19th century documents in the JE papers are concentrated in one file, “Erlanger family correspondence,” 1882-1938. The file in Box 15, Folder 23 seems very likely to have been created by the library staff, possibly at the time of the official presentation of the Erlanger papers in 1963. Series 2 has been microfilmed on 16mm reels 11-12. Boxes 14-15.
