Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1907-1968
Scope and Contents:
This subseries consists of 576 notebooks documenting individual researcher's laboratory notes. Indexed by topic, these notes are typed and bound usually on an annual basis. These volumes are compiled to document all research performed for Parke Davis by a laboratory researcher whether the investigations became important to the company or not. They are arranged alphabetically by scientist and chronologically by the years of his employment in the lab. The content is generally the same as the company lab records, but the scope of research is much broader in the personal notes.
