Freis, Edward D., 1969-1970

 File — Box: 32, Folder: 11

Scope and Contents

From the Sub-Series:

The second subseries consists of AMA Council on Drugs materials (1968-1972). This consists of correspondence with Council members and AMA staff, agendas, administrative memoranda, and some files related to specific drug issues. Much of the material deals with the publication of an article and editorial in the Journal of the American Medical Association on "The Package Insert" in 1969, the writing and publication of the AMA-Drug Evaluation books in 1971 and 1972, and the dissolution of the Council on Drugs in 1972. There are a great many interesting items relating to drug evaluation and labelling, FDA relations, and AMA in-house politics. As with other files, Adriani's own letters predominate. There is also, however, much correspondence from others, including John Ballin, Harry Dowling, Thomas Hayes, Hugh Hussey, Max Parrott, Harry Shirkey and Jean Weston.
