Abstract:

This collection includes correspondence, diaries, lab notes, and photographs. Documented are Webster's pioneering efforts in epidemiology and his interests in encephalitis, poliomyelitis, rabies, and resistance to infectious diseases.

Other aspects of Webster's life can be seen in his diaries and journals. There is a diary of 1909; a privately published diary of 1919 of his service in Labrador as a physician at the International Grenfell Association (includes photographs); a journal of 1924 of his honeymoon trip which was partly paid for by the Rockefeller Institute so that he could meet European scientists (includes photographs); a diary of 1929-1943; a 1930 journal of a canoe trip to James Bay with Dr. Charles C. McCoy. There is also a volume of letters concerning his death, including biographical sketches by colleagues.

The contributions to Webster's work and publications by his wife, Emily deForest Webster White, who later re-married Dr. Harold White, can be seen in her interesting reminiscence, "Science Recollections, 1923-1971." Her own interests after Webster's death are suggested in her report of the world trip of 1964 on behalf of the Planned Parenthood Association and her attendance at the International Conference of Social Work in Athens, Greece.
