Historical Note

The Department of Biology was founded in 1892. Before the end of the University's first year of operation, this department was subdivided into the departments of Zoology, Anatomy and Histology, Physiology, Neurology, and Paleontology.

Scope Note

This collection consists of four boxes of material, which originated in the Zoology Department during the years 1922-1938. As of this date the collection is somewhat fragmentary.

The first box contains correspondence. The majority of these letters pertain to the period, 1931-1934, when Dr. C. M. Child was chairman of the department. Especially interesting are Child's letters to his Japanese associates regarding his trip to Japan in 1930.

Departmental, financial and budgetary records, 1923-1937, fill the second box. Correspondence of a perfunctory nature concerning appointments, scholarships, fellowships, and assistantships, 1922-1938, is contained in Box 3. Box 4 holds miscellaneous reports and records of meetings and examinations.

This material was deposited in the library by the Zoology Department in January 1966.
