Michael Heidelberger papers by Michael Heidelberger( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The papers are an addition to an existing collection of Heidelberger papers, MS C 245. These papers deal primarily with Heidelberger's career as teacher, researcher, and active member of the scientific community. Extensive correspondence, the bulk of which dates from 1956 to 1989, demonstrates Heidelberger's wide range of contacts and interests in the fields of immunochemistry and related disciplines. Some of the holdings illustrate Heidelberger's role as an original researcher and contributor to scientific journals (Series 4, 5, 6, 8). Heidelberger's career as a teacher is also well-documented by this collection. Research notes and bound notebooks kept by students make up a large part of the collection. The notebooks, in particular, represent decades of research work conducted under Heidelberger's supervision. The Heidelberger papers will be of interest to those researching in the evolution of immunochemistry both in the laboratory and without. The collection may also illuminate the growth and structure of the international scientific community in the twentieth-century. The fact that Heidelberger was active in his field for over seventy years makes these papers useful for studies of historical trends and developments. In addition, it is conceivable that historians interested in Columbia, Rutgers and New York University might find the papers of interest as he held faculty positions at all three. Researchers interested in pneumococcal polysaccharides, malaria, and typhoid might also used this collection, particularly for historical background

Family papers by Catherine Berry Pilcher Avery( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Principally the papers of Catherine Berry Pilcher Avery, but also includes papers of her husband, Dr. Roy C. Avery, her parents, Meritt Scott Pilcher and Margaret Bryan Pilcher, and other members of the Pilcher, Bryan, Berry, Dewees, and Tannehill families. Mrs. Avery was a lifelong resident of Nashville, Tennessee, and many of the papers relate to the history of that city and its institutions. The papers include correspondence, diaries and journals, legal documents, genealogical data, photographs, scrapbooks, and postcards. Correspondents of note include Oswald Theodore Avery, Roy Crowdy Avery, Albert Gleaves Berry, Ferdinand Berry, Mary Lillian Berry, Hardy Bryan, Stanley Fisk Bryan, Eliza Tannehill Gleaves, Mary Berry Knoble, Marie Louise Mis, Margaret Bryan Pilcher, Meritt Scott Pilcher, and Margaret Avery Ritchie. Topics include Virginia Civil War campaigns; the naval career of Admiral Albert Gleaves Berry; Oswald T. Avery's service as a bacteriologist during World War I; and Stanley Fisk Bryan's World War I service in Europe. Diaries and journals are those of Mary Coburn Dewees (1787-1788), Nancy Barrow Pilcher (1845), Eliza Tannehill Gleaves (1846-1878), Mary Elizabeth Hunt (1848-1852), Julia Newberry (1871), and Catherine Berry Pilcher Avery (1908-1909, 1915, 1917). There are also reminiscences about Nashville written by Meritt S. Pilcher in 1934

The professor, the institute, and DNA by René J Dubos( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Oswald Theodore Avery is little known outside of the scientific community. Yet, this extraordinary man, here brought vividly to life by a perceptive friend and sophisticated scientific colleague, was a monumental force in the development of medical research in the United States. Even among scientists, Avery is known chiefly as the senior author of a paper published in 1944 that identified DNA as the purveyor of genetic information. Two things make this highly personalized biography a landmark volume. First, its technical chapters clarify the philosophical concepts that lie behind today's understanding of the immunology of bacterial infection. Second, not a single existing textbook has ever described the laborious methods by which the men in Avery's laboratory discovered the genetic import of DNA

Oswald T. Avery collection by Oswald Theodore Avery( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Consists of materials collected by Joshua Lederberg over his thirty year professional relationship with Oswald T. Avery. The materials include published articles and books, laboratory notes, correspondence, speeches, official reports, photographs, and audio cassettes. Documents range in date from 1912 to the late 1990s, most coming from the 1940s and from the 1960s to the present. A large part of the collection consists of published materials, and a number of significant items are copies of materials at the Rockefeller Archive Center and the Tennessee State Library and Archives. The collection falls roughly into two parts: items related to the discovery of the transforming principle and items related to the discovery's reception by the scientific community. Particularly noteworthy are 10 sets of notes from the Avery laboratory (1940-46) with captions by Maclyn McCarty and 6 photographs of the Rockefeller Institute Hospital Staff (1923-49/50)
The Oswald T. Avery collection by Oswald Theodore Avery( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Oswald Theodore Avery (1877-1955) was a distinguished Canadian-born bacteriologist and research physician and one of the founders of immunochemistry. He is best known for his discovery that deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) serves as genetic material. The work of Avery and the members of his team at the Rockefeller Institute, observes Nobel laureate Dr. Joshua Lederberg, was "the historical platform of modern DNA research" and "betokened the molecular revolution in genetics and biomedical science generally." Because of the strong connection between his and Avery's work, Dr. Lederberg collected materials related to Avery's career and donated them to the NLM. Additional materials were drawn from the Oswald T. Avery Papers at the Tennessee State Library and Archives. Documents in the Oswald T. Avery Collection range from 1912 to 2005. The collection contains awards, laboratory notes, research reports, published articles and books, correspondence, unpublished manuscripts, speeches, photographic prints, and audiovisual materials. As part of its Profiles in Science project, the National Library of Medicine has collaborated with the Tennessee State Library and Archives to digitize and make available over the World Wide Web a selection of the Oswald T. Avery Collection for use by educators and researchers. This site provides access to the portions of the Oswald T. Avery Collection of the Tennessee State Library and Archives and the National Library of Medicine that have been selected for digitization. Individuals interested in conducting research in the Oswald T. Avery Collection are invited to contact the Tennessee State Library and Archives and the National Library of Medicine. This online Exhibit is designed to introduce you to the various phases of Avery's scientific career and professional life
