Scope and content

This collection consists of 2136 photomicrographs originally mounted in 5 notebooks that have been unbound and arranged into 37 folders. Ruth Silberberg states in her oral history that the Silberbergs learned electron microscopy in 1959, so the electron micrographs in the series probably antedate 1959. Each photomicrograph is individually labeled with information such as mice strain (C57 or Dba), sex, age, hormone or other treatment with dose and frequency and other information concerning the microphotograph, including the level of magnification. For a description of each folder, please see FC086, Series 2.

System of arrangement

When the photomicrographs came to the archives, each subdivision of the notebooks was put in a folder and the subdivision labels were copied and became folder labels. The photomicrographs are arranged and described in the Ruth Silberberg Papers collection [FC081-S02] Each folder was also given a VC number when the photographs came to the archives [VC086001-037]. Each folder contains multiple photomicrographs.
