Abstract:

Gamble's papers are a rich source of information about the development and testing of contraceptive methods, changing attitudes of the medical and health professions, legislative reform and education of the public, governmental involvement on local and national levels, and demographic studies in developing countries after the post-World War II population explosion. Correspondence, memoranda, reports, minutes, conference papers, financial data, newsletters, and other material reflect the establishment, direction, and financing of programs by Gamble to advance the cause of population control through organizations such as the National Committee on Maternal Health, American Birth Control League, Birth Control Clinical Research Bureau, Birth Control Federation, Planned Parenthood Federation, and International Planned Parenthood Federation. Significant correspondents are Abraham Stone, Cecil Damon, Mary Calderone, and Christopher Tietze. Also included in the collection are correspondence and related material concerning contraceptive field trials, family planning studies, and other population control programs of various organizations and government agencies. Considerable material exists from Puerto Rico, India, Japan, Philippine Islands, Rhodesia, Mexico, and Italy, and files sometimes contain interview and field reports, statistical data, drafts of articles and reprints, photographs, and financial data and reports.

Files from the United States include similar material, as well as records of organizations, such as minutes of meetings of human betterment leagues and printed literature from state planned parenthood groups, drafts of legislation, and publicity. Much of this material reflects the work of Edris Rice-Wray, Edith Gates, Margaret Roots, and Edna McKinnon. Additional Gamble correspondence is with Margaret Sanger, R. L. Dickinson, and other colleagues; with churches, drug firms; and with organizations such as the Margaret Sanger Research Bureau and Harvard School of Public Health. Subjects cover contraceptive research and supplies, sterilization, and family planning. Other significant materials include drafts, reprints, questionnaires, statistical data, and correspondence pertaining to Gamble's writings on sterilization and college birth rates; administrative, financial, and legal records of the Pathfinder Fund; some personal papers such as family and business correspondence, photographs, slides, and correspondence and notes documenting travels; and outlines, interviews and correspondence for a biography.
