Abstract:

Correspondence, reports, articles, clippings, case records, laboratory data, notes, hearing transcripts, and legal documents concerning Krebiozen and the A.M.A.'s involvement with it.

The collection includes roughly five boxes of correspondence, consisting mainly of inquiries about Krebiozen and the A.M.A.'s answers. These files also contain correspondence with New York POST writer Barbara Yuncker, relating to a 1960 series of articles on the drug, and with MEET THE PRESS moderator Lawrence Spivak in 1961 (though the Krebiozen controversy apparently was not dealt with on the program).

The correspondence files also include scattered issues of the newsletter of the Citizens Emergency Committee for Krebiozen. The "special data" files (twelve folders) include reports, press releases, newsletters, promotional literature, and other materials, including papers by A.C. Ivy on topics other than Krebiozen.

Also included are approximately two boxes of folders on various special topics, including the American Cancer Society and its role in the Krebiozen affair; columns by Boston HERALD writer George Frazier, criticizing the A.M.A. for "suppressing" Krebiozen; laboratory reports on the drug; involvement of organized labor with Krebiozen; and a "report" on the affair compiled for Sen. Paul Douglas. This section also includes protest letters addressed to the A.M.A. just before and after the banning of Krebiozen from interstate commerce in 1963, and a 1968 paper by William D. Morain, KREBIOZEN: NINETEEN YEARS OF CONTROVERSY.

Most of the remaining documents concern the Illinois General Assembly investigation of Krebiozen in 1953-55. This section (about nine boxes) includes the General Assembly resolutions and enabling act establishing the investigating committee; documents submitted as exhibits by the A.M.A.; about 40 volumes of hearing transcripts; case reports from both the Krebiozen Research Foundation and the A.M.A.'s Council on Pharmacy and Chemistry; the committee's interim and final reports; and other supporting material.

Rounding out the collection are three volumes of 1958 hearing transcripts from a U.S. Senate Committee investigation of health fraud, for which Dr. Ivy testified; and about 1 1/2 boxes of legal documents from several lawsuits involving Krebiozen.
