Series 2: Correspondence, 1936-1976 [series]:

This series illuminates discussions held by federal officials on all aspects of contracted human disease and environmental, industrial, and occupational hazards. It consists primarily of day-to-day correspondence issues related to federal policies for improving the work environments of American workers such as miners, industrial laborers, and machinists. Lawrence's duties ranged from Senior Scientist to consultant and Director of programs designed to investigate the health and safety of the American population. Several letters include topics such as the use of agricultural insecticides, ill-health aspects of digging for uranium and vanadium, ionizing radiation, toxicology control, exposure to beryllium and its compounds, and mortality and morbidity data from epidemiological studies on carcinogenic materials exposure. There is also reference to bill S. 3112, an amendment to the Clear Air Act (Law 88-2206, Dec. 17, 1963) authorizing grants to air pollution control agencies to maintain control programs. Lawrence was involved with key scientists and researchers such as Carl Jensen, Supervisor for New Mexico Department of Health in Industrial Health, Duncan A. Haladay, Senior Sanitary Engineer (Colorado Plateau), J. G. Townsend, Chief Industrial Hygiene Division U.S.P.H.S., W. C. Hueper, M.D., Chief of Cancerigenic Research Studies Section, Cancer Control Branch.
