Series 1: Personal and Biographical, 1950-2004, [series]:

Although this series offers few primary accounts of Axelrod's early life and career, secondary biographical sketches and articles cover much of his scientific activities throughout the late 1970s. Just like the Professional Activities series, this series only has a small sampling of materials from Axelrod's career during the late-1980s and 1990s. Still, these materials give the researcher good information on Axelrod's entire career, specifically his laboratory work and discoveries, and his winning the Nobel Prize in 1970, which is also documented in the Nobel Prize and Other Awards series.

The first subseries contains biographical materials and essays about Axelrod; writings by Axelrod, including his 1968 book on the Pineal Gland, are found in the Writings and Publications series. The second subseries contains numerous articles and clippings devoted to Axelrod at various stages in his life and career. The final subseries of miscellaneous materials includes two folders of clippings that cover some of the political issues with which Axelrod became involved following his 1970 receipt of the Nobel Prize, as well as some personal correspondence and materials relating to close colleagues.

Series 2: Laboratory Notes and Notebooks, 1946-1971, [series]:

This series contains materials related to Axelrod's laboratory work. The first subseries includes four sets of lab notes from the late 1940s. The second subseries features eighteen clothbound lab notebooks, mostly from the 1950s, but some date from the 1960s and 1970s. Each notebook's subject is written on the spine, and many of the experiments are undated. The notebooks document Axelrod's research into how caffeine, LSD, and narcotic drugs affect the central nervous system. Most of the work in these notebooks appears to be in Axelrod's hand, some of which is illegible. Despite their age, these items are in relatively good condition.

Series 3: Writings and Publications, 1910-2003, [series]:

This series contains the writings of Axelrod, the majority of which are reprints from scientific journals and monographs. The first of six subseries features both loose and bound reprints by Axelrod. Bound volumes of reprints dating from 1948-1978 comprise the first half of the subseries; these volumes cover drug metabolism, the pineal gland, adrenaline, noradrenaline, and catecholamines. Nearly complete in their coverage of his enormous body of early scientific work, Axelrod organized each volume of reprints into subject categories and arranged them chronologically. Axelrod also kept loose copies of his articles and numbered them in chronological order; these articles, along with a copy of the corresponding bibliography, make up the second half of this subseries.

The second and third subseries contain manuscripts, interviews, and other works by Axelrod. Included in the Manuscripts subseries are the typescripts of Axelrod's master's thesis and doctoral dissertation, while the third subseries features the transcript of a question-and-answer session with Axelrod on the history of pharmacology. Actual audio- and videorecordings of interviews with Axelrod are contained within the Audiovisuals series. All materials in both of these subseries are arranged chronologically.

The fourth subseries includes books written by others, all inscribed to Axelrod. These are arranged alphabetically by author. The fifth subseries contains reprints by other authors that Axelrod collected, arranged first by general subject and then by year. Subjects of these reprints include catecholamines, the pineal gland, and narcotic microsomes. Some of these reprints have been marked or annotated by Axelrod or by the article's author. The final subseries consists of miscellaneous figures and charts arranged by subject. The figures were used either as overheads, slides, or diagrams for articles. To avoid further deterioration of some damaged materials, these items were copied and the originals destroyed.

Series 6: Photographs, ca. 1915-2002, [series]:

This rather extensive series contains photographs and a few slides from Axelrod's personal life and professional career. Most of the items in this series are identified by descriptions and/or dates inscribed on the back of the image.

The first subseries contains photographs of Axelrod's personal life and family members; a large number of these are snapshots. The second subseries consists of photographs from Axelrod's professional career, beginning with pictures from the Goldwater Memorial Hospital and the NIH. This subseries also contains numerous conference photographs from the 1960s to 1990s showing Axelrod and other attendees, as well as a number of unidentified and undated conference photographs. Some of these conference photographs are part of files from the Professional Activities series. The third subseries includes photographs from Axelrod's various trips. The locations of these travels are generally identified, but the professional occasions or personal events are not.

Series 7: Audiovisuals, 1970-2003, [series]:

This series consists of two DVDs and one VHS videotape featuring two interviews with Axelrod and an NIH celebration in his honor. The videotape contains a biographical account of Axelrod's career, created by the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, while one DVD captures an oral history with Axelrod conducted by Dr. Marshall Nirenberg and Dr. Bernard Witkop. The interviews discuss Axelrod's career and his work in psychopharmacology and neuropharmacology. Copies of both are part of the NLM general collection; the videotape can also be found at the following location WZ.100 VC no.75.57, and the DVD at WZ 100 VC no.270. The second DVD is a transfer from a 16 mm film of the NIH celebration held on the occasion of Axelrod's Nobel Prize in November 1970.
