Dillon, John B., 1960-1979

 File — Box: 6, Folder: 5

Collection Summary

From the Collection:

The collection contains little material from Adriani's youth, and none from his childhood. Most of the collection reflects Adriani's career in anesthesiology after it began to flower in the late 1940s. The great bulk of the material dates from between the 1950s and the 1980s, and it consists mostly of typed correspondence, memoranda, reports, manuscripts and printed materials. Adriani maintained a personal correspondence for many years with FDA officials, pharmaceutical manufacturers, and Congressional staff as well as with other physicians. The collection will be of use to those researching the history of anesthesiology, nurse-anesthesia, medical education, the pharmaceutical industry and its regulation by the government, hospital administration, and health-care policy and planning in mid-twentieth century America.
