Writings and memorabilia of Rudolph John Anderson, professor of chemistry at Yale University, 1927-1948. The papers contain autobiographical memoirs, essays on the history of chemistry by Anderson and drafts of his book, The Chemistry of Lipoids..., published in 1938.
Correspondence, experimental records, and miscellaneous papers related to George Baitsell (1885-1971) and his professional activities. Nearly one third of the papers consists of research material including laboratory data, reports, and recommendations based on a study of poisonous gases conducted for the U.S. Army Chemical Warfare Service, 1917-1919.
