Stephen Katz papers

 Collection
Identifier: HMD MS ACC 2019-015

Abstract

Awards, NIDDK/NIAMS historical background materials, scientific strategic planning retreat meetings. Electronic records include powerpoint presentations, personal/travel photos, sent email archives. Katz was NIAMS director who was also an important figure in many trans-NIH initiatives and promoting the scientific enterprise writ-large. These papers are also a snapshot of NIDDK/NIAMS history as collected by the director's office administrative staff over many years before Katz's tenure, so the collection is a mixed-bag of provenance and scope. The bulk of the collection are Katz's powerponts and sent-mail archives which likely document the trans-NIH nature of his career. His pre-NIAMS career and joint appointments with NCI were not preserved.
