  • Collection
  • 1948-2015

This collection contains materials related to Jerome R. Cox, Jr.’s work 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.
