EVC was in his day among the premier organizers of international scientific meetings. One such achievement was the Fourth International Cancer Congress, held in St. Louis September 2-7, 1947, for which EVC served as president. Over 200 scientists from more than 40 countries attended meetings at the Jefferson Hotel, with informal gatherings held also at the two local university campuses. The delegates were considered to be official representatives of their respective countries, a fact reflected in the arrangement of the series, which is alphabetical by name of country. See also Series 62, which contains press clippings concerning the event. The meeting established an International Cancer Research Commission, on which EVC served as the United States representative until 1954. Series 10 concludes with two files of financial data for, respectively, the Congress and the Commission. Boxes 77-78, Reels 66-68.
