Ruth Silberberg Photomicrographs

  • VC086
  • Collection
  • circa 1959

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. https://beckerarchives.wustl.edu/FC081-S02

Ruth Silberberg Papers

  • FC081
  • Collection
  • 1959-1976

The collection contains Ruth Silberberg’s records of her collaborative research with her husband, Martin Silberberg, on skeletal aging and growth, and the study of osteoarthritis. It also contains Ruth Silberberg’s work on the relation of diabetes and joint disease after Martin’s death in 1966. The two series include reprints of scientific articles authored or co-authored by Ruth Silberberg, 1961-1976, and her photomicrographs, 1959-[1975]. After the Silberbergs received training in electron microscopy in 1959, the electron micrographs became an important tool in Ruth and Martin’s joint research and important illustrations for their publications of the period.
