Series 2: Artificial Left Heart (ALH), 1958-1971 (Bulk 1965-1966) [series]:

These materials document Kantrowitz's work on the "Studies Basic to Consideration of Artificial Heart Research" contract. Here, the term "artificial heart" refers to both the auxiliary left ventricle and the implantable artificial heart. The contract was a collaborative effort between Arthur Kantrowitz's colleagues at the Avco Corporation and Adrian Kantrowitz's team at Maimonides Hospital, which included his wife Jean, Tetsuzo Akutsu, Paul-Andre Chaptal, Georges Dureau, and Toru Okura. The series consists of correspondence, memoranda, administrative lists, background material, publications, time cards, and draft and master copies of the different sections of a task report which summarized the entire study. Materials are arranged alphabetically by folder title.
