Weed, C. -E. A. Winslow, and Alan C. Woods. Series II (1.0 linear ft.) contains bibliographies and curricula vitae for a number of biochemists, many of whom were Clark's students; photocopies of clippings; letters from colleagues and friends regarding works published by Clark; announcements for programs and lectures; invitations and event programs; playbills; class exams and attendance lists; and copies of Clark's bibliography covering publications through the 1950's. Also filed here is biographical material regarding Clark, and a limited amount of information about Clark family history and genealogy. Series III (1.25 linear ft.) contains research notes; notebooks; and calculations made by Clark in the course of laboratory work, and during the writing of manuscripts intended for publication. Series IV (1.25 Linear ft.) contains manuscripts, lectures, reviews of work published by others, and notes, both for lectures as well as for the revision of his Oxidation-Reduction Potentials of Organic Systems. Included are drafts of memorial articles for Barnett Cohen and Leonor Michaelis, his Cutter Lectures delivered in 1930 at Harvard University, and manuscripts regarding the history of the government's antimalarial research during World War II. Series V (0.25 linear ft.) contains manuscripts which are chiefly conference reports and papers describing research. There are papers by Johnas S. Friedenwald and Gertrude Maengwyn-Davies on enzymatic activity; and papers by Karl Sollner, R. E. Tarbett, and Joseph and Dorothy Moyle Needham. Other material was generated as a result of the U.S. Government's World War II antimalarial drug program. Series VI (0.25 linear ft.) includes black and white photoprints and photonegatives. Most of the photoprints show Clark's laboratory and the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and include both laboratory staff and equipment. The photonegatives include images of Clark's lecture or class notes written on blackboards.
