Files compiled in retirement or posthumously, 1936-1966.
Name of creator
Scope and content
Most of the files in this series were compiled from materials supplied by the Department of Physiology, JE’s daughter Margaret Erlanger, or the Medical Library. As a group they testify to the high regard that JE was held at the end of his life and immediately thereafter, but they do not appear to be in a file order of his choosing. Included are documents from JE’s career that may have been gathered for his autobiography or perhaps for an exhibit honoring him as well as posthumously created items. It is difficult to date some of this material, but most of it falls within the period 1936-1966. Series 3 has been microfilmed on 16mm reels 13-14. Boxes 16-17.
