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.

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.

Series 3: Electronic Physiologic Aids (EPA), 1954-1972 (Bulk 1961-1966) [series]:

Materials in the EPA series describe several research projects, each concerned with developing devices or surgical methods which compensate for various heart, limb, and gastrointestinal ailments. The experimental, administrative, and publicity aspects of these different projects are represented to varying degrees in the following six sub-series: Pacemaker, Adynamic Paralytic Ileus Stimulation, Phrenic Nerve Stimulation, Bladder Stimulation, Coordinated Limb Movement, and Other. The Pacemaker and Bladder Stimulator projects are covered most extensively and required further subdivision. Specific material types throughout the EPA sub-series include correspondence, professional and layperson inquiries, patient lists, medical files, human and animal data sheets, publications, forms, printed matter, photographs, drafts, and memoranda. Folders within each sub-series are arranged alphabetically by folder title.

Portions of the series are restricted by HMD's Access to Health Information of Individuals policy (PHI).

Series 4: Mechanical Auxiliary Ventricle (MAV), 1952-1989 (Bulk 1965-1967) [series]:

This series documents the experiment data gathered in animal tests of the MAV, alternately referred to as the mechanical booster heart (MBH). The vast majority of the folders contain the raw data and handwritten notes recorded during the implantation of the U-shaped MAV model by Kantrowitz and such colleagues as Paul-Andre Chaptal, Franz Gradel, Toru Okura, Tetsuzo Akutsu, and Wladimir Schilt. All experiment logs, notes, ECG recordings, pathology reports, autopsies, and photographs are of animal experiments (primarily dogs). Sub-series within the MAV series are based on investigator or experiment series names and are in rough chronological order. Folders within these sub-series are arranged alphabetically by folder title or numerically by experiment number, although the Mechanical Booster Heart Tracings are arranged chronologically. An alphabetically arranged General sub-series at the end gathers together various MAV-related records, including random data, correspondence, and patent application material.

Series 5: Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump (IABP), 1963-1989 (Bulk 1967-1977) [series]:

The IABP series is comprised of four sub-series: Dog Studies, Human Studies, Instructional Training Program, and Cooperative Study. The last three sub-series are subdivided further. Materials in the first two sub-series comprise experimental data gathered during animal and human trials with the IABP. Dog Studies consists entirely of balloon pump readings that are arranged alphabetically by folder title; Human Studies consists of data logs, medical files, case reports, patient lists, ECG recordings, and wall charts as well as information on a study run by Mary Caiazza and Jaroslav P. Stulc. Most folders within these sub-series are arranged alphabetically by title. The Caiazza-Stulc study patient lists follow the order listed in the Table of Contents; the Case File notebooks which summarize numerous patients are arranged before the individual case files.

The third sub-series, Instructional Training Program, documents Kantrowitz's efforts to promote a wider acceptance of the IABP by training other healthcare professionals in its use. Particularly well documented is a one-time training workshop run by Sinai Hospital of Detroit in cooperation with the Ohio State University Perfusionist Training Program. Material types in this sub-series include correspondence, memoranda, evaluation and registration forms, background research, interviews, and printed matter. The Cooperative Study sub-series refers to a proposed effort by Maimonides Hospital and other institutions to construct IABP devices and deliver them to other medical facilities. Included are program proposals, reports, meeting minutes, correspondence, memoranda, manuals, and two audio reels. The subdivisions within each sub-series are arranged alphabetically by title; folders within these subdivisions are arranged chronologically by date range, then alphabetically by title.

Portions of the series are restricted by HMD's Access to Health Information of Individuals policy (PHI).

Series 6: Heart Transplant (HT), 1961-2004 (Bulk 1966-1969) [series]:

This series provides details on the Kantrowitz research team's experimentation with cardiac transplants in animals and human beings. It consists of surgery records, correspondence, professional and layperson inquiries, memoranda, reports, reprints, abstracts, consent forms, conference material, manuscript drafts, background research, and clippings. The series is divided into the following sub-series: Surgery Data, Administrative Files, Publications, Nancy Ross-Flanigan Files, BBC Documentary, and Michael Meyer Files. The first four sub-series are subdivided further. Materials in the first sub-series are arranged alphabetically by folder title or numerically by experiment numbers. Folders in the second, third, and fourth sub-series are arranged chronologically by date within their respective subdivisions. The final two sub-series are also arranged chronologically by folder date.

Surgery Data contains images of the infant transplantation surgery performed by Kantrowitz on December 6, 1967, as well as the raw data, handwritten notes, and ECG recordings from numerous dog and human infant trials performed by Yasunori Koga and Shigehisa Yagi. The second and third sub-series document internal developments and public discussions regarding animal and human heart transplants, such as the surgeries on the dogs Pirate and Kuru and the ethics of total heart transplants. The Nancy Ross-Flanigan Files contain the planning documents, research, and drafts kept by Ms. Flanigan to help Kantrowitz prepare "America's First Human Heart Transplant -- The Concept, the Planning, and the Furor," a 30th anniversary retrospective on the surgery. The fifth sub-series consists of correspondence regarding a BBC documentary on the history of transplant surgery, and the final sub-series is a group of writings and articles on Kantrowitz's first human heart transplant.

Portions of the series are restricted by HMD's Access to Health Information of Individuals policy (PHI).

Series 7: Other Research Projects, 1955-1985 [series]:

This series brings together files from five less heavily documented projects. Documented here are Cardiovascular (CV) Surgery, Aortic Valve Transplant, Assisted Circulation Engineering, Prosthetic Myocardium, and Chronic Heart Failure (CHF). Experiment notebooks, log sheets, patient records and readings, photographs, correspondence, blueprints, expense reports, invoices, and equipment proposals can be found throughout this series. The CV Surgery sub-series contains notebooks kept by Arthur Cohen and Fred Heilman that cover several experiment series involving dogs, and the Assisted Circulation Engineering project contains planning and research records regarding the construction of a new heart surgery study area at Maimonides Hospital. Folders are arranged alphabetically by folder title within each sub-series.

Portions of the series are restricted by HMD's Access to Health Information of Individuals policy (PHI).

Series 8: Publicity, 1949-1989 [series]:

Publicity series materials include newspaper clippings, magazine articles, correspondence, printed matter, and photographs which report on Kantrowitz's activities and notable events in the thoracic field and general medicine. All acidic newspaper clippings were photocopied onto acid free paper; the originals were discarded and the photocopies were retained. There are two sub-series: the Research and Professional Activities sub-series and the General Medical Subject Files sub-series. The primary focus of the Research and Professional Activities sub-series is Kantrowitz's research, promotions, conference attendance, and speaking engagements, but it also documents accomplishments of contemporary surgeons such as Michael E. DeBakey and Christiaan Barnard. The General Medical Subject Files sub-series covers a broad range of trends and achievements both in Kantrowitz's area of expertise and other medical fields. Items within each sub-series are arranged chronologically by date.

Series 9: Clinical Films, 1950-[ca.2004] [series]:

The Clinical Films series contains 8 and 16 mm open reel films, the majority of which were filmed without sound. Included are fragments, duplicate footage, and completed films that document experimental operations performed by Kantrowitz and his associates. Kantrowitz screened completed films such as "Experimental artificial left heart for exposure of the mitral valve," "Repair of ruptured ventricular septum," and "Long term survival after canine heart allotransplantation" during presentations at various professional events and continuing education courses. Both animal and human surgeries are represented, with puppy transplants (including that of the dog Pirate) making up a substantial portion of the series. Clinical Films is sub-divided by surgery categories: Artificial Left Heart/Mitral Valve, Cardiovascular Surgery, Electronic Physiologic Aids, Haskell Shanks, Heart Transplant, Heart Transplant (Puppy), Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump, Mechanical Auxiliary Ventricle, Orsi, Patch Booster Dog, Prosthetic Myocardium, and Other. Films within each sub-series are arranged numerically by the line numbers included in the film titles. The films have been rehoused in archival canisters, assigned item numbers, and stored separately from the rest of the collection. Nineteen films covering a variety of surgeries were digitized onto three Panasonic-DV cassettes. These cassettes are located in the folder "LVAD digitized films, tapes 1-3" at the end of the series inventory.

Series 10: Writings, 1944-2002 (Bulk 1963-1979) [series]:

The Writings series contains published and draft material authored and co-authored by Kantrowitz, with co-authored items making up the majority. Among the subjects covered are: peripheral arterial blood flow, urinary bladder stimulation, heart transplantation, the implantable cardiac pacemaker, a percutaneous energy transmission system, and various forms of the mechanical auxiliary ventricle. Writings is arranged in two sub-series: Journal Articles and Draft Material. The first sub-series includes a numbered bibliography of selected Kantrowitz writings, which are in rough chronological order. All of the published journal articles, reprints, and reports from this bibliography are arranged by their bibliography number. The second sub-series consists of miscellaneous rough drafts and illustrations from published works; it is arranged alphabetically by folder title.

Series 11: Presentations and Talks, 1950-1970 [series]:

This series contains speeches, lists of speeches, transcripts, abstracts, drafts, programs, correspondence, clippings, and printed matter separated from Series 12: Conferences, Meetings, and Events. The speeches in these folders were delivered by Kantrowitz and others at several professional events in the 1960s. Speech subjects include the future of cardiology and advancements in cardiac support devices. Researchers should note that the series is not a comprehensive gathering of Kantrowitz's talks. Mention is made in Series 12 folders of other presentations given by Kantrowitz, but those folders do not contain the actual speeches. The material is arranged chronologically by event date.

Series 12: Conferences, Meetings, and Events, 1958-1985 (Bulk 1966-1973) [series]:

This series provides information about the various conferences, workshops, meetings, dinners, award ceremonies, and other professional events Kantrowitz attended or was invited to over a thirty-year period. These are regional, national, and international events devoted to topics from cardiovascular surgery, thoracic surgery, and medical and biological engineering. One folder of note covers an exchange of surgical apparatus and information that followed Kantrowitz's visit to the USSR in the late 1950s. Materials types found in Series 12 include programs, correspondence, travel kits, manuscripts, drafts, membership applications, printed matter, name tags, and expense reports. The files are arranged chronologically by event date. Folders with lists of multiple events are filed at the beginning of the year the first event takes place (e.g. the folder "National meetings (July 1, 1970 to December 31, 1971)" is filed at the beginning of 1970).
