Processing Information

Fredrickson was the subject of the first prototype website of Profiles in Science, the U.S. National Library of Medicine's Digital Manuscripts Program's digital archive and exhibition of the papers of key figures in the fields of science and health. Fredrickson was very active in the creation of this digital archive, rearranging many of his papers, adding comments and annotations to specific documents, and collecting files into new series and sub-series, particularly in Series 1: Personal and Biographical and Series 10: Photographic Materials. As a result, it is difficult to ascertain the "original" order of the documents in the collection.
