Series 7: Photographs, [1932?]-2002 [series]:

The collection contains only a few photographs. The majority of these are portraits of Nirenberg, taken particularly during the period between the announcement of the poly-U experiments and the Nobel Prize. Other subjects of note include a young Nirenberg with his parents and his sister Joan, circa 1932, and Nirenberg and his staff celebrating the news of the Nobel Prize. The photographs are organized into two sub-series, Personal and Professional, and are arranged chronologically. They have been grouped together by subject with implied dates provided. Photographs from lab experiments are found in the Lab Photography sub-series of Series 4: Lab Research.

The Prints and Photographs collection contains additional Nirenberg photographs; a list of these images has been appended to this finding aid. Nearly all of the images from both collections are available on Nirenberg's Profiles in Science exhibit.
