Papers, [ca. 1920]-1974.

This collection includes correspondence, reports, notebooks, lectures, photographs, etc. It is a rich collection, documenting the development of American genetics as well as Dunn's varied interests. There is significant material relating to American-Soviet Union contacts, particularly in the files on the American-Soviet Friendship Council and the American-Soviet Science Society. There is much, as well, on the impact of the Lysenko controversy in the United States. Dunn's interests in European scientists can also be seen in the sizable amount of material on the Emergency Committee in Aid of Displaced German Scholars. Material relating to the Kilgore and Magnusson bills for the support of science (predecessors of the National Science Foundation) are in the collection.

ca. 15,000 items (15 linear ft.).
