Other Professional Activities, (1970-1979) [series]:

This series consists of records which relate to Dr. Wilson's other professional activities, excluding his work at the University of Kansas, University of Missouri, and Vanderbilt University Medical School. Record types include correspondence, reports, printed material, and meeting agendas. Generally the records cover his tenure as Administrator of Health Services and Mental Health Administration (HSMHA), Department of Health Education and Welfare (HEW); his work as a professional consultant to universities; and his memberships on various Boards of Directors or professional committees.

Two folders containing correspondence regarding membership renewals at the beginning of the series provide a list of Dr. Wilson's professional affiliations. The remaining records are arranged alphabetically and follow a hierarchical sequence so that records from each organization are grouped together and, thereafter, appropriate subgroupings within each organization are provided.

Professional organizations represented in the records are the American Board of Family Practice; various subcommittees of the American Medical Association, including the Council on Medical Education's Residency Review Committee as well as the Liaison Committee for Graduate Medical Education; Appalachian Regional Hospitals, Inc.; and the National Commission on Arthritis, Community Programs Working Group. Dr. Wilson's work as a consultant to various universities highlights some of the issues important to medical education at the time. The results of the University of Southern California's School of Medicine efforts to collect data on physician activities by medical specialty to determine the country's physician manpower needs appear in the records in a series of practice study reports. As a member of an evaluation team for the University of Missouri's Department of Pathology program in the late 1970s, Dr. Wilson received correspondence and evaluation reports regarding the program from Fred V. Lucas, Pathology Department chairman.

Notable among the materials concerning Dr. Wilson's work outside his university affiliations is information regarding the Appalachian Regional Hospitals, Inc. when he served as an observer at its Board meetings in the mid-1970s. A small portion of Dr. Wilson's papers in this collection document his years as Director of the HSMHA and include, briefing papers, a report on HSMHA programs, the Spanish Speaking Street Project Report, congressional hearing briefings, and a roster of HSMHA public advisory members.
