Abstract:

Records of the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) include files of Drinker as dean and as professor in the Department of Physiology; faculty minutes, 1958-1977; records of Division of Industrial Hygiene, the Departments of Tropical Medicine and of Maternal and Child Health, and of the President's Committee to Study the Future of HSPH, 1972; curriculum material and reports from the early cooperative public health program; reports of special projects and conferences sponsored by HSPH and other official publications; and faculty publications.

Drinker's correspondence files, 1919-1950, pertain to administration of HSPH, such as appointments and admission of Radcliffe students; to relations with Harvard Medical School and Harvard University; to his research projects, such as World War II work on respiratory physiology, and other research on the lymphatic system. Also concerns his studies of health problems in industry and work as a medical consultant for several industries, for example, a study by Cecil and his wife Katherine on radium poisoning; editing of the Journal of Industrial Hygiene and Toxicology by Cecil, Katherine, and his brother Philip; and Cecil's teaching in the Department of Physiology, lecturing, and involvement in professional societies. Includes correspondence with faculty, such as Alice Hamilton, and other colleagues; and accounts from the Laboratory of Applied Physiology.

Division of Industrial Hygiene records, 1918-1934, contain correspondence, minutes of meetings and reports of the Committee on Industrial Hygiene, and lists of departmental publications. Department of Tropical Medicine material includes correspondence of Frederick C. Shattuck concerning funding and organization of the department; correspondence of George C. Shattuck regarding a research project in Panama and other matters; account books; and alumni records of classes of 1913-1936. Major correspondents include Richard Pearson Strong. Records of Department of Maternal and Child Health include reports about teaching maternal and child health in public health schools, some correspondence, and reprints. Much of this material belongs to Martha Eliot. Records of the President's Committee contain minutes of meetings, correspondence, reports of consultants, and final report to Derek Bok. Harvard-M.I.T. School for Health Officers and School of Public Health records include course material; registration cards; and reports on epidemiology, environmental and industrial health, clinical medicine, and health services. Other holdings from HSPH are deans' reports, 1946-1954; Accreditation Task Group reports, 1975-1976; reports to the Board of Overseers, 1949; transcripts from Office of Program Planning, 1972-1976; applications to foundations; and 2 films about yellow fever research in 1920. Graduate student theses from HSPH are also available in the Archives.
