Author: Carter Litchfield
Edition/Format:   Archival material : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
The Litchfield collection documents Carter Litchfield's activities as a chemist, historian and collector.

Series I, Collection acquisitions (1966-2007) documents how Litchfield assembled his collection through purchases from private collectors and at auctions.

Series II, Fats and fatty oils research materials (1956-1980) consists of Litchfield's own notebooks and quantitative data from research conducted at Procter & Gamble (fatty oils) and Rutgers (cetacean and sponge lipids).

Series III, Olearius Editions files (1707-2007) includes business correspondence, accounts, drafts, proofs and notes for Litchfield's publications on oil mills, the oil industries, and oleomargarine stamps. Among the notes are early diaries and accounts (both originals and photocopies) for the Moravian Oil Mills at Bethlehem, Pa., and notes and drawings on other oil mills around the world. There are also programs and papers from professional conferences that Litchfield attended.

Series IV, Julius Lewkowitsch papers (1865-1987) contain his research notes and manuscripts, including one for the unpublished seventh edition of the The Chemical Technology and Analysis of Oils, Fats and Waxes, as well as personal papers, estate papers, and obituaries. They also contain papers of his wife Katherine and daughter Elsa.

Series V, Ellsworth C. Warner papers (1883-1934) include a letterbook, papers about his courtship and marriage to Mellie Bisbee and their subsequent divorce, along with a history of the Midland Linseed Oil Company.

Series VI consists of a small collection (1810-1889) of correspondence of the French chemist M. E. Chevreul.

Series VII, the papers of Litchfield's wife Carol, deal with her consulting work with Microbial Solutions.

The audio-visual component of the Carter Litchfield collection has been transferred to the Pictorial Collections Dept. as accession no. PC 2007.227.

Carter Litchfield's personal library of books, pamphlets and periodicals on the history of fatty materials has been transferred to the Imprints Dept., where it has been cataloged at the item level.  Read more...
