Articles 281 - 511, 1969-1982

 File — Box: 23, Folder: 1-47

Scope and Contents

From the Series:

This series contains the writings of Axelrod, the majority of which are reprints from scientific journals and monographs. The first of six subseries features both loose and bound reprints by Axelrod. Bound volumes of reprints dating from 1948-1978 comprise the first half of the subseries; these volumes cover drug metabolism, the pineal gland, adrenaline, noradrenaline, and catecholamines. Nearly complete in their coverage of his enormous body of early scientific work, Axelrod organized each volume of reprints into subject categories and arranged them chronologically. Axelrod also kept loose copies of his articles and numbered them in chronological order; these articles, along with a copy of the corresponding bibliography, make up the second half of this subseries.

The second and third subseries contain manuscripts, interviews, and other works by Axelrod. Included in the Manuscripts subseries are the typescripts of Axelrod's master's thesis and doctoral dissertation, while the third subseries features the transcript of a question-and-answer session with Axelrod on the history of pharmacology. Actual audio- and videorecordings of interviews with Axelrod are contained within the Audiovisuals series. All materials in both of these subseries are arranged chronologically.

The fourth subseries includes books written by others, all inscribed to Axelrod. These are arranged alphabetically by author. The fifth subseries contains reprints by other authors that Axelrod collected, arranged first by general subject and then by year. Subjects of these reprints include catecholamines, the pineal gland, and narcotic microsomes. Some of these reprints have been marked or annotated by Axelrod or by the article's author. The final subseries consists of miscellaneous figures and charts arranged by subject. The figures were used either as overheads, slides, or diagrams for articles. To avoid further deterioration of some damaged materials, these items were copied and the originals destroyed.
