Series 1: Grants and Funding, 1950-1990 [series]:

The Grants and Funding series contains material related to the acquisition and renewal of funds to support the various research projects of Kantrowitz and his research team. There are three sub-series: Grants, Foundation Information, and Senate Testimony. The Grants sub-series documents the many grants that funded Kantrowitz's various circulatory studies, mechanical organ assist device projects, and experiments in implantation methods. The "Studies in Assisted Circulation" grant alone encompasses a variety of projects that include the dynamic aortic patch, U-shaped mechanical auxiliary ventricle, phase-shift balloon pump, and the dynamic prosthetic myocardium. This sub-series consists of applications, proposals, progress reports, drafts, correspondence, budget information, invoices, expense reports, floor plans, and invention statements. Grants are arranged chronologically by their initial start date, and folders are arranged chronologically within their respective grant titles.

Drafts and completed versions of grant applications and proposals are restricted until 75 years after date of submission.

The Foundation Information sub-series contains correspondence with and background information on private foundations. It is arranged alphabetically by foundation name, with foundations named after people filed under their surnames and summary binders which cover multiple foundations grouped at the end.

The three folders in the Senate Testimony sub-series contain evaluations on the adequacy of federal support for biomedical developments; they are arranged alphabetically by folder title.
