Name of creator


Scope and content

This series was compiled in large part from books and reprints acquired directly from JE, but expanded in 2001 to include virtually everything that he published. As noted below, some items were bound into three volumes, presumably at JE’s own request. Others were placed into consecutive file folders. The book Electrical signs of nervous activity, co-authored by H. S. Gasser (1937) was placed in the Monuments of Medicine rare book collection of the Library. The series was not microfilmed. Boxes 31-35.
