Series 6: Speeches, 1961-1983 [series]:

This series consists mainly of notes and drafts of speeches documenting Cummings' speaking engagements at dedications, conferences, and a variety of other professional events. Topics include medical library technology, the National Library of Medicine, the Medical Library Assistance Act, the National Medical Library Network, William Osler, and John Shaw Billings. The speeches from 1963 to 1976 have been numbered and arranged chronologically by Cummings' staff. In addition, information about the location of the presentation and any subsequent publications, if relevant, is included. After 1976 his staff discontinued the numbering system. For intellectual access, the speeches from the later years have been described individually replicating Cummings' earlier filing system.

Series 9: NLM Director Emeritus, 1968; 1982-1989 [series]:

This series contains correspondence, notes, publications, and reports documenting Cummings position as Director Emeritus. Promptly after his retirement (September 30, 1982) from the Library he assumed new duties under the title of Director Emeritus, particularly the organization and classification of the John Shaw Billings papers. His research of the John Shaw Billing papers resulted in various speeches and publications which can be found in Series VI: Speeches and the publications can be found in Series X: Publications. In addition, he was assigned to assist the Library's International Program activities as required in the absence of Dr. Corning who retired on August 31, 1983. Cummings later served as a consultant in library and information services, particularly CLIR, and was an active member of the friends of the National Library of Medicine. The series is arranged alphabetically.
