Mildred Cohn papers, 1947-1980 1947-1980

This collection includes correspondence, research data (20 large loose-leaf notebooks), reviews of grant proposals (National Science Foundation, Research Corporative, N.Y.), manuscripts, and student recommendations. The correspondence in the collection dates primarily to the 1960s-70s, when Mildred Cohn worked at the University of Pennsylvania and at the Institute for Cancer Research in Philadelphia. The letters are professional in content, discussing biochemistry, molecular biology, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) experiments (with significant material on the NMR Facility for Biomedical Studies at Carnegie-Mellon University). The letters also concern lectures and participation in conferences and symposia, and there is much relating to recommendations for students and colleagues for positions and promotions. There is little material, however, reflecting Dr. Cohn's interest and involvement with the issue of women in science.
