Collection Scope and Content Note


The collection is almost entirely correspondence with academic colleagues and research contacts at the FDA and medical associations. Among these were Oliver Field, of the American Medical Association, Louise Richards of the FDA and George Griffenhagen of the American Pharmaceutical Association. John Duffy and Rima Apple, historians specializing in medicine, were regularly consulted. Among Dr. Young's academic friends were Walter Rundell, Jr., Brooks McNamara, David Herbert Donald, James G. Burrow, Charles Jackson, Gerald Carson and Ann Beck.

The papers are arranged chronologically within each series, from 1943 through 1997, with a few folders devoted to particular correspondents or specifically oriented to drug research. Two small series are devoted to projects Dr. Young was instrumental in conducting: a special issue of the Emory University Quarterly and a symposium observing the 75th anniversary of the FDA at Emory University in 1981. Several folders hold writings and printed material that accrued with the correspondence.
