Narratives, most of which concern foreign travels, and an early version of EVC's bibliography. Dated writings are from 1930, 1944, 1965, 1969-1972, and 1984.

Autobiography, 1965.

Written at the request of Joseph T. Freeman. Included in the file is a reprint of Freeman's article. "Edmund Vincent Cowdry, Creative Gerontologist: Memoir and Autobiographical Notes," The Gerontologist 24 (1984): 641-45.

Oral history transcripts.

EVC recorded recollections of his early visits to China and Japan in two sessions on October 2, 1969 and January 15, 1970 using an audio tape recorder lent to him by the Medical Library. Although the sound quality of both is very poor, Library staff made a partial transcript of his remarks in the late 1990s that retains some of the wit and flavor that he surely intended. The text, it must be added, is hardly the most reliable account of his life in East Asia. It is partly because the Library with EVC's consent publicized the availability of this "oral history" that is included here.

Bibliography, 1944.

This is a relatively early version, presumably compiled at EVC's own request by his Anatomy Department staff. An updated list of publications is found in the scope note of Series 72, Published papers and chapters of books.

General correspondence, 1906-1928.

Files covering the period of EVC's life from his undergraduate studies in Toronto to his acceptance of a professorship at Washington University. Boxes 2-22, reels 1-22. See also Series 3 (legal size correspondence from his year in South Africa, 1924-1925).
