Joseph Erlanger Papers

  • FC001
  • Collection
  • 1890-1964

The collection consists of eight series. The attempt has been made to maintain the original order as much as possible, and particularly in the correspondence and scientific data series. Much of the material, however, was transmitted and accessioned in small portions in the years 1963-1966, and in some cases items were placed on display in the Library before being arranged in series. The microfilming, moreover, was carried out before the final arrangement and analysis of the collection could be made; somewhat premature filming decisions have, therefore, affected the final arrangement that is presented here and some items are missing or poorly described on the film.

Erlanger, Joseph

Files from the Department of Physiology, 1910-1940.

This portion of the Erlanger papers consists of files of correspondence, lecture notes, and other material, 1910-circa 1940, received by the Medical Library on June 7, 1963. They are contained in boxes 1 through 13, with folders consecutively numbered 1 through 154. Although identified by the library staff as one series, it appears in retrospect to contain several imperfectly ordered series or subseries. For example, the files in Box 1, Folder 1 through Box 4, Folder 56, with contents concerning a variety of issues, have an alphabetical arrangement. They are followed by another group with varied contents, Box 4, Folder 57 through Box 7, Folder 101. Here too the arrangement is basically alphabetical. Files in Box 8, Folder 103 through Box 8, Folder 110 pertain mainly to lectures which JE gave at out-of-town venues. Files on professional and scientific societies and research with which JE was concerned follow in Box 9, Folder 111 through Box 10, Folder 133. There is no discernable arrangement system. The series concludes with files of mainly personal correspondence, again with no discernable arrangement system in Box 13, Folder 134 through Box 13, Folder 154. The exact significance of the cryptic notations A1, B2, C3, etc. is not known. The series has been microfilmed, 35 mm reels 1-10.
