Collection Scope and Content Note


Nichtenhauser's material is divided into two different numbered collections. The typescript "History of Motion Pictures in Medicine" is found in MS C 380. Photographs received in 1991 and found in the text have been identified by figure number and filed accordingly. Photographs which could not positively be identified in the text are found at the end of the collection, as is a collection of unsorted negatives. The draft manuscript portion of the collection is organized by chapter titles as listed in its table of contents, however two chapters from section IV are missing: Health and Related Films Since the End of World War II; Medical Films from the End of World War II to the Present. Also, the page numbering of section IV's last chapter The Lesson of the Past and the Task of the Future does not match the table of contents.

MS C 277 contains material from the original donation of 1954. It consists of correspondence, notes and other research materials assembled by Nichtenhauser during the course of his career.
