The Sir Charles Blagden Papers contain scientific and travel notes, correspondence, and printed material documenting aspects of the life and scientific work of Sir Charles Blagden. These include observations on travel in England and on the continent in the 1780s; memoranda on scientific experiments and observations, including notes by Lavoisier; letters to his brother, John Blagden Hale; and proof sheets of Philosophical Transactions for 1789.
The main body of this collection consists of issues of comic books from the 1940s containing "true" stories of medical heroism and biomedical progress. There are a smaller number of later comics containing history of medicine stories; comics with a public health message; comics advertising a "health" product, and some reference sources on comic books.
The Raymond Deghels papers document the life and career of a Belgian inventor who created a non-reflective paint to disguise military aircraft during World War II. The collection contains literary manuscripts, patents and supporting material such as paint samples, correspondence, legal documents, photographs, and personal effects.
The papers include Joan Jackson's masters' degree research, her masters' thesis, correrspondence, presentations, grant applications, and publications, and a scrapbook documenting her successful career at University of Washington. The second part of the collection documents her role as a Class A Trustee (i.e. non-alcoholic) of the General Study Board of Alcoholics Anonymous from 1983 to 1992, incuding her presentations and publications.
Miscellaneous Letters Collection is a collection of hundreds of individual letters or small groups of letters, mostly by physicians and scientists, either donated to the Historical Library or purchased.
The papers consist of correspondence, research materials for articles and lectures, teaching materials related to Yale University and the University of Miami, and citations for awards received by Lars Onsager, notably the Nobel Prize in 1968.
Most of the collection consists of autograph letters by prominent physicians and scientists in America and abroad to John Collins Warren, surgeon and naturalist. Two letters are by Warren.
