More on the history of neurosciences in Oregon
In an update to last week's post on the windfall we received from the closure of the library at the OHSU Neurological Sciences Institute, we can now report that sixteen boxes of books and an additional load of institutional records have been deposited with the OHSU Library and Historical Collections & Archives.
NSI's Interim Director, Jeri Janowsky, PhD, has graciously deeded over three document cases of records pertaining to the history of the institute, including committee records, meeting minutes, long-range planning documents, operational policy documents, annual reports, and videocassettes of programs about Robert S. Dow and NSI. This collection (Accession 2008-004) and the related collection of Dow's personal papers (Accession 2008-003) will be an invaluable source of information on the history of neuroscience research in Oregon.
