Series VI: Nobel Prize, Honorary Degrees, and Other Awards, 1970-1998 [series]:

In addition to the other series focusing Rodbell's professional activities and travel, this series covers the numerous awards and professional honors that Rodbell received during his scientific career. Rodbell's most significant awards are covered in three subseries and then a fourth subseries contains files on other honors. Materials are arranged chronologically and similar items, such as official documentation and letters of congratulations are grouped together. Photographs from several of the award ceremonies are found in the photographic series, and some of the larger materials such as honorary degrees and certificates are kept with the oversize materials.

The first subseries covers Rodbell's winning the Gairdner Foundation International Award in 1984. Included in this subseries are presentation materials, his acceptance speech, and letters of congratulations. Three years later, in 1987, Rodbell was elected to the National Academy of Sciences (NAS). This important induction is covered in the second subseries which contains correspondence, articles and clippings, and letters of congratulations. But the most prestigious honor was the 1994 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, which Rodbell received jointly with Alfred G. Gilman, for their discovery of signal transduction. The third subseries contains materials related to his receiving the Nobel. These files cover Rodbell's 1994 trip to Sweden to receive the award, varied correspondence, letters of congratulations, and numerous articles and clippings. The fourth subseries covers Rodbell's other professional awards, appointments, and honorary degrees. This series shows the diversity of professional and scientific awards that Rodbell received during his lifetime.
