Whipple, George Hoyt, 1878-. Papers, 1915-1976.

Papers, 1915-1976.

Dr. Whipple's papers are almost wholely devoted to the work of his laboratory, and to his organizational activities outside Rochester. There is very little material reflecting his role as Dean of the Medical School. The collection includes scientific and personal correspondence; laboratory work data; & organizational files. Of particular interest are the files pertaining to his involvement with the Rockefeller Foundation & the Rockfeller Institute; his activities with the AMA and FASEB in response to the anti-vivisection movement; and his membership on the New York State Temporary Commission on the Need for a State University (1946-48), which resulted in the formation of the SUNY system.
