Societies, Associations and Organizations, 1925-1988, [series]:

Adriani belonged to many professional and public organizations. Among the most important were the Academy of Anesthesiology (President), the American Board of Anesthesiology (President), the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the Louisiana Civil Service League (Board of Governors), and the Louisiana State Medical Society (Committee on Technical Services). In addition to details of intramural politics and organizational history, there are letters in this series discussing anesthesia problems, anesthesia history, pharmaceutical questions, and the nurse anesthetist issue. The ASA files include extensive correspondence related to the ASP-AANA Liaison Committee and other negotiations/discussions of nurse anesthetist issues, supplementing the material in the Nurse anesthetists series. The ASA correspondence on the Talmadge Bill deals with negotiations over physician reimbursement, Relative Value scales, and nurse anesthetist practice. Other ASA files cover medical education questions, professional issues, and the Wood Library and Museum. The American Board of Anesthesiology records are of particular interest, containing much information about planning and designing the examinations, as well as professional education and training in anesthesiology.

Records are filed alphabetically by name of organization and the more important have been reorganized in forward chronological order. In accordance with Adriani's original filing systems, this series is divided into two subseries. The first subseries, Societies and Associations, serves as the principal organization files and is arranged alphabetically by organization. It also includes correspondence with various organizations in which Adriani was interested, although not a member, such as the American Hospital Association. The second subseries, Medical Meetings, contains materials and correspondence related to meetings and presentations given by organizations not listed in the first subseries. It is arranged chronologically. The bulk of this material is routine; however, there are letters of interest scattered throughout regarding organizational politics, medical education, anesthesia problems, and general observations.
