Department of Anesthesia, 1941-1988
The files of the Anesthesia Department contain yet more interesting details on the recent history of anesthesia and on Adriani's role in it. While much of the material is of a routine administrative nature, there is extensive correspondence with the manufacturers of anesthesia and inhalation therapy equipment. Many of the files contain only brochures, price quotations, and similar items, but some contain material of interest relating to the development and evaluation of technology in these specialties. The most interesting and extensive files are those dealing with the Foregger Company (1955-1970), with whom Adriani worked for many years, designing and assisting in the development of anesthesia equipment. The file also contains some information on the history of the company. Large or important files have been reorganized in forward chronological order; other files have not been reorganized. In keeping with Adriani's own arrangement, records dealing with inhalation therapy equipment are filed separately.
