Medical Education, 1925-1988, [series]:

Adriani's files on medical education have been divided into three subseries. The first contains material used in his forty-year teaching career at Charity Hospital, Tulane Medical School, Louisiana State University Medical School and Loyola University's School of Dentistry. Adriani served on the faculty of both Louisiana State University and Tulane Medical School from 1941 to the end of his life, and on the faculty of Loyola University's School of Dentistry until 1971. He taught courses in anesthesiology, pharmacology, and oral surgery, among others, and also taught residents at Charity Hospital. The second subseries consists of mostly routine correspondence regarding his teaching at the schools, though the correspondence on some subjects, such as teaching films, is extensive. Correspondence between Adriani and Louisiana State University and Tulane University faculty members on subjects other than his teaching career is located in the following files in the General Correspondence series, Physicians' Correspondence subseries: Harold Albert, Raymond Boudreaux, Allen Copping, Isidore Cohn, John Finerty, Bert Glass, Thomas Hernandez, Edgar Hull, Edmund Jeansonne, Abraham Mickal, Norman Nelson, Rafael Sanchez, and Robert Sundin, all of LSU; and Oscar Creech, Theodore Drapanas, Clifford Grulee, Monte Holland, Edward Krementz, Maxwell Lapham, Francis LeTard, Norman Nelson, Robert Sparks, Walter Unglaub and John Walsh, all of Tulane. Correspondence between Adriani and faculty members at Tulane and LSU concerning the facilities at Charity Hospital in New Orleans is located in the relevant department files in the Charity Hospital subseries, Hospitals series. Letters of recommendation written by Adriani for his students can be found in the General Correspondence series.

In 1979, Adriani visited St. George's University Medical School on the Caribbean island of Grenada to lecture in pharmacology and subsequently became a member of St. George's Academic Board and Board of Trustees. His involvement with the often troubled Caribbean school is a fascinating chapter in his life and in the history of medical education, and it forms the third subseries.
