Abstract:

The collection documents Bastian's rise as a neuroscientist, biologist, writer, and reseacher, and encompasses typed and manuscript letters to and from Bastian, research notes and writings, scientific photographs, ink and pencil drawings, and professional reviews and accolades. The largest series contains correspondence between Bastian and other prominent scientists, neurologists, scholars, publishers, assistants, and friends, including Louis Pasteur, Caleb Saleeby, Thomas Huxley, Sir John Bretland Farmer, Aristide Pratelle, and William Paton Ker, among many others. There are also exchanges with the Académie des Sciences in France. The correspondence usually concerns Bastian's research projects and publishing activities, particularly his work on abiogenesis, but also on paralysis. Other materials are more personal, and include obituaries, condolences, Christmas cards, and newspaper clippings. The collection also contains numerous pieces of correspondence addressed to Bastian's daughter, Sybil Bastian, who was also a scientist, and Bastian's wife Julia. Acquired as part of the History of Medicine Collections at Duke University.
