Series I: Personal and Biographical, 1904-2007 [series]:

The Personal and Bographical series documents Dr. Lederberg's personal life. The series provides insight into Lederberg's professional, and to a lesser extent, personal development. The bulk of the material covers his education, awards he received (particularly, the Nobel Prize), autobiographies, and biographical information.

The series is divided into six sub-series: Address Cards, Awards and Honors, Bibliographical Material, Biographical and Autobiographical Material, Clippings and Reprints, and Education. Document types found in the series include correspondence, publications (articles, reprints), notebooks, notes, application forms, memoranda, manuscripts, and governmental documents. In each sub-series some documents were left in original order, while other documents were assigned an order by the archivist.

I.1 Address Cards, n.d.

The Address Cards sub-series contains a group of alphabetized index cards with the addresses of Lederberg's numerous contacts. The cards are color coded to indicate whether the address was updated. The cards are undated and the accuracy of the individual addresses is unsubstantiated.

Folders are arranged alphabetically by card headings and documents were left in original order.
