Abstract:

The collection includes extensive correspondence, lectures, autobiographical material, articles and papers, zoological course notes, and photographs. Stern's various areas of scientific interest are documented in the collection, including chromosome theory of heredity, role of gene mutation and chromosome rearrangements in evolution, action and interaction of genes during individual development, and particularly his contribution to the development of human genetics as a discipline.

Stern's career in Germany and in the United States is documented in his correspondence. His Rockefeller Foundation Fellowship, 1924-1926, allowed him to study with T. H. Morgan at Columbia University. In 1926, he returned to Richard Gouldschmidt's lab at the Kaiser-Wilhelm Institute in Dahlem, where he helped to establish the cytological basis of crossing over. There is material of note concerning this period.

After a short stay at the California Institute of Technology in 1932, Stern's temporary residence in the U.S. became permanent, as he joined the University of Rochester, 1933-1947 (Chairman, Dept. of Zoology), and then the University of California, Berkeley, 1947-1970. There is significant material on the department of zoology at Univ. of California and on the university in general.

There is material of note on the American Association for the Advancement of Science (Inter-Society Committee on Science Foundation Legislation, 1946-1947), American Society of Human Genetics (President, 1957), U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (Advisory Committee for Biology and Medicine, 1950-1955), "Genetics" (journal), Oak Ridge National Laboratory (Advisory Committee for Biology, 1955-1968), and the Rockefeller Foundation.

Stern's correspondence with friends and colleagues in Germany, England, and the U.S. during the 1920s and 1930s is of particular note, as it documents not only the developments in genetics and the institutional and administrative networks supporting research, but it also offers general comments and observations on science, Germany, and politics. The photographs (2 boxes) include pictures of many prominent geneticists and scientists.
