Jerome R. Cox, Jr., Papers

  • FC157
  • Collection
  • 1948-2015

This collection contains materials related to the work of Jerome R. Cox, Jr., in the fields of biomedical computing and computer science, as well as materials related to his personal life and entrepreneurial endeavors. The bulk of the collection relates to Cox’s five decades-long career at Washington University in St. Louis. A significant portion relates to work undertaken as the founding director of the School of Medicine’s Biomedical Computer Laboratory (BCL) (1964-1975) and as the first chair of the Department of Computer Science (1975-1991), along with a more modest amount from his time as director of the Applied Research Laboratory (1991-1995). In addition to operational and administrative documents, these materials include correspondence, grant applications and reports, and research related to auditory physiology, electrocardiogram (ECG) analysis and processing, the Laboratory Instrument Computer (LINC), the development of the Programmed Console (PC) and its use in radiation treatment planning, computed tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography (PET) scanning technologies, and DNA mapping. The collection also contains a number of materials related to Cox’s work on asynchronous computing, electronic radiology and campus-wide networking, and information systems and database technologies. Cox’s work also resulted in several patents that are found in the collection, including an anti-collision device for aircraft and technologies related to computed tomography and asynchronous computing. Also of note are documents related to his role as chair of the Washington University Computer Laboratories (WUCL), and a series of materials related to BCL’s collaboration with the Picker X-Ray Corporation on CT scanning technologies.

Cox’s professional writings and activities are also well-represented in the collection. His writings include manuscripts and drafts of papers presented and/or published, along with reprints of most of his journal articles, some of which were also issued as BCL Monographs or Department of Computer Science Technical Reports. Materials related to Cox’s professional activities include documentation of his participation in conferences, seminars, and workshops; service on governmental committees, panels, and advisory groups as a member, chair, or consultant; and service on corporate and editorial boards. A significant portion of these materials relate to Cox's role as co-founder and co-chair of Computers in Cardiology, an annual international conference.

A smaller portion of materials relate to Cox’s work with the Central Institute for the Deaf (CID) (1955-1964), including newspaper clippings from a trip to Caracas, Venezuela, in 1956, to install equipment for an audiology lab at the Venezuelan Institute of Speech and Hearing. The collection also includes a limited number of materials related to activities prior to moving to St. Louis, including graduate work at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and consulting positions at Bolt, Beranek, and Newman (BBN) and Liberty Mutual Insurance Company. The collection also includes materials related to Cox’s founding of Growth Networks, Inc., Blendics, LLC, and Q-Net Security, Inc., during the latter part of his career, in the 1990s and 2000s.

In addition to documentary records, the collection includes photographic materials and slides related to LINC and PDP computers, the Programmed Console (PC), macromodular systems, PET scanning, and other medical imaging. Also of note are two albums containing photographs and memorabilia from the BCL/CSL 25th Anniversary Symposium and Dinner, and from an evening celebrating Cox’s tenure as chair of the Department of Computer Science.

Evarts A. Graham Papers

  • FC003
  • Collection
  • 1904-1957

The original inventory of the Graham Papers was compiled before the collection was donated to the Washington University School of Medicine Library.  Unfortunately, some items were removed from Dr. Graham’s files before the collection was donated.  Therefore, the inventory that was provided along with the collection included citations to many items, particularly scientific reprints, which had in fact been removed from the files before the collection was donated to the Archives.

The decision was made by the library staff to continue using the original inventory in order to show the collection in its entirety.  The inventory has been revised to include the following changes: (1) empty folders are marked as such by brackets or by an asterisk (*) to indicate items removed; (2) the collection has been microfilmed, and notations concerning the reels may be found within the inventory; (3) the collection has been placed in document boxes and notations concerning the boxes have been added to the inventory.

The files are divided into sixteen series, which are listed below. The series designations together with the folder titles provide basic descriptions of the contents.  Particular note, however, should be made of series 11, which contains correspondence files of Dr. Fred Murphy, Graham’s predecessor as Chairman of the Department of Surgery.

Graham, Evarts A. (Evarts Ambrose), 1883-1957

Alfred Goldman Papers

  • FC018
  • Collection
  • 1920-1971

The Alfred Goldman Papers contain publications, correspondence, manuscripts, lecture outlines, case studies, a notebook, a scrapbook of clippings and letters (microfilm only), a scrapbook of memorial letters, reports and photographs relating to AG’s career and research in diseases of the chest and effects of hyperventilation.

Among the reprints in the collection are pioneer works in hyperventilation, cytology of fluids, and arteriovenous fistula of the lung. Other series pertaining to AG’s published work are correspondence and reports, manuscripts, and scientific photographs. The correspondence in the scrapbooks attests to AG’s warm relationships with friends, colleagues, and patients.

Shortly after acquisition, the Goldman papers were arranged in 6 subgroups and 11 series, inventoried, and then microfilmed. The so-called subgroups constitute an arrangement by format. In the 1970s the Library regularly classed collections of faculty papers in the following pattern: 1, Publications; 2, Bound Papers; 3, Loose Papers; 4, Card files; 5, Photographs; and 6, Memorabilia. Card files happened not to be part of the Goldman papers, thus no subgroup 4 is present. Selected photographs and memorabilia are retained in the papers. All subgroups are now series and series are now subseries. (Other images, notably portraits and group portraits, are presently found in Library visual collections VC 410, 411, and 415.)

The arrangement by format also called for enumerating folders in a fashion that needs explanation –particularly if the microfilm is used. First, the four part folder code number on the right side of the folder tab represents following sequence: collection number/subgroup number/series number/folder number. Second, the folder numbers start over with each new subgroup rather than with each new box. Third, empty cross reference folders were made referring users to material elsewhere in the collection. Later, empty folders were removed creating the gaps in folder numbering.

Goldman, Alfred, 1895-1973
