The Preliminary Research Subseries contains a copy of The Journal of Experimental Medicine's 35th anniversary reprint of Oswald Avery, Colin MacLeod, and Maclyn McCarty's article, "Studies on the Chemical Nature of the Substance Inducing Transformation of Pneumococcal Types," which was originally published in 1944. The subseries also contains original pages from Avery's laboratory notebooks that document experiments in his laboratory during 1940 to 1946.
