Abstract:

Series I (15.5 linear ft.) contains correspondence with molecular biologists, geneticists, biochemists, chemists, students, politicians, and some publishers. The bulk of this series covers the 1960s to the 1980s. The major correspondents include Edward A. Adelberg, Thomas F. Anderson, David Baltimore, Ernest Borek, Moam Chomsky, Arthur Chovnick, Royston C. Clowes, Seymour S. Cohen, Melvin Cohn, Francis Crick, Bernard D. Davis, Max Delbruck, Theodosius Dobzhansky, August H. Doermann, Stephen J. Gould, Irwin C. Gunsalus, Harlyn O. Halvorson, Alfred D. Hershey, Francois Jacob, Joshua Lederberg, Andre Lwoff, Barbara McClintock, Boris Magasanik, Matthew S. Meselson, Jacques Monod, Aaron Novick, Linus Pauling, George Streisinger, James D. Watson, Jean Weigle, and Elie Wiesel. There is a substantial amount of correspondence concerning Luria's affiliation with the American Society for Microbiology, the Fondation Royaumont, the International Cell Research Organization, and the Salk Institute for Biological Studies.

Series IIa (3.75 linear ft.) contains reports and meeting minutes (for the American Society for Microbiology and the Salk Institute for Biological Studies); newspaper and magazine clippings; and petitions. Subjects include the Nobel Prize, the Boston Area Faculty Group on Public Issues (BAFGOPI), Central America, Vietnam, civil defense, nuclear power, nuclear arms, and the National Institutes of Health's blacklisting of Luria.

Series IIb (.75 linear ft.) contains various items of a personal nature, including condolence letters sent to his wife after Luria's death; letters in Italian from his brother and father in Italy; poems that Luria wrote; financial materials; Luria's naturalization certificate; and World War II letters in Italian from a girlfriend in Italy before he met his wife.

Series III (2.75 linear ft.) contains Luria's outlines, research, and drafts for articles, books, and lectures. Also included are published letters to the editors of The Boston Globe and The New York Times.

Series IV (11 linear ft.) contains articles, notes, reports, and papers written by colleagues and students of Luria. This series is arranged alphabetically by author and then by title. Included is a copy of James D. Watson's PhD thesis (Luria was one of Watson's advisors) and a copy of a paper that Francis H.C. Crick wrote for the RNA Tie Club.

Series V (4.5 linear ft.) contains loose notes and notebooks that are arranged by folder title and include the subjects of bacteria, colicins, microdermatology, phage, salmonella, shigella coli, and viruses.

Series VI (4.5 linear ft.) contains lecture notes, exam and quiz questions, problem sets, lists of students registered for the courses, grade books, handouts, instructions for experiments, and reading lists. Course subjects include bacterial viruses, biochemistry, biophysics, freshman seminar, general biology, general microbiology, and microbial physiology.

Series VII (5.25 linear ft.) contains prints and negatives. Some of the prints are illustrations from articles and others are prints of Luria himself. Also included in this series are four boxes of lantern slides and one box of 2x2 inch slides, which seem to be visual aids for lectures and illustrations for articles.
