O’Leary’s career illustrates the establishment of neurology at Washington University School of Medicine as a distinct medical discipline. The O’Leary papers include correspondence, lectures, manuscripts, card files, photographs, certificates, and reprints of articles. They document his work in many areas of neurological research, but particularly his investigations in the diagnosis and treatment of ataxia and epilepsy. There is also significant material on O’Leary’s contributions to American Neurological Association, Epilepsy Association of America, Epilepsy Foundation of America, WUSM Administration, and WUSM Department of Neurology.
