Mss.B.W396

Date: 1909-1943 | Size: 4 Linear feet, Ca. 2000 items

Abstract

Includes correspondence, diaries, lab notes, photographs. Webster was a pioneering epidemiologist working at the Rockefeller Institute (1920-1943), and his collection documents this, as well as his interest in encephalitis, poliomyelitis, rabies, and resistance to infectious diseases. Other aspects of his life can be seen in his diaries and journals: diary of 1909; privately published diary of 1919, with photos, of his service in Labrador as a physician at the International Grenfell Assoc.; European journal of 1924, with photos, of Webster's honeymoon trip which was partly paid for by the Institute in order that he could meet European scientists; diary of 1929-1943; 1930 journal of a canoe trip to James Bay, with Dr. Charles C. McCoy. There is also a volume of letters concerning his death, including biographical sketches by colleagues. The contributions of his wife, Emily deForest Webster White (later married to Dr. Harold White), to Webster's work and publications can be seen in her interesting reminiscence, "Science Recollections, 1923-1971." Her own interests after Webster's death are suggested in her report of her world trip of 1964 in behalf of the Planned Parenthood Assoc. including attendance at the International Conference of Social Work, in Athens, Greece.

Background note

Leslie Tillotson Webster was an epidemiologist and worked at the Rockefeller Institute from 1920 to 1943.
