Series II: Academic Career, 1925-2005 (bulk 1947-1978) [series]:

The Academic Career Series contains material documenting Lederberg's long career in academia as both a professor and administrator, from his 1947 appointment as head of the genetics department at the University of Wisconsin, to his tenure as chairman of the genetics department at Stanford University and his term as president of Rockefeller University. The series reflects key moments in his career and provides information on the many organizations he belonged to throughout his life.

The series is divided into three sub-series: University of Wisconsin, 1947-1959; Stanford University, 1958-1978; and Rockefeller University, 1978-1990, 2005. Folders are arranged chronologically by sub-series, and within sub-series folders appear alphabetically by folder title. All folders follow this scheme except for those in the Rockefeller University sub-series. There the folders are arranged chronologically by sub-sub-series. Documents within folders are usually arranged in chronological order. Document types found in the series include correspondence, reports, meeting minutes, grant proposals, applications, articles/clippings, notes, publications, and memoranda.

II.1 University of Wisconsin, 1947-1959, 1.12 linear feet

The University of Wisconsin sub-series contains material Lederberg collected during his tenure at that institution. Included is documentation on his participation in the development and eventual chairmanship of the Department of Medical Genetics at the University. Also documented is material concerning the controversy surrounding his hiring. A report from May 27, 1999 by Susan McDonough, a historian hired by Lederberg to document and organize his papers at Rockefeller University before they were donated to the National Library of Medicine, contains more information on Lederberg's controversial application to the University. The report is located in the appendix of this finding aid.
