 File — Box: 3, Folder: 10

Scope and Contents

From the Series:

This series documents the active leadership of GMITP's Board of Directors. This body controlled the operation and maintenance of the Corporation, although the day-to-day operational responsibility rested on the Executive Committee. The series further exhibits the implementation of the general policies and activities authorized by the Executive Committee and for assuring that major additions, eliminations or alterations in the organizational plans of GMITP were properly controlled. The President held the general and active management of the Corporation under the surveillance and policy direction of its Board of Directors through the Executive Committee and the Chairman of the Board. The powers of the Board of Directors when not in session were given to the GMI Executive Committee. This forty-seven member body was made up of both the "Elected Directors", who served for a three-year period, and "Related Directors", who shared equal power and voting rights with the Elected Directors. This latter body consisted of Directors of scientific organizations and various government groups, such as The National Institutes of Health, The Smithsonian Institution, The National Library of Medicine, The University of Alabama at Birmingham and the University of Panama. Also included in this body of "Related Directors" were the Surgeon Generals of the various military branches.

Each subseries is alphabetically arranged and contains materials related to each director's term of service. They were originally stored with the Advisory Scientific Board materials but after reviewing the responsibility of the "Related Directors" and seeing a close connection with the "Elected Directors", they were combined into this series.
