Julius Kaunitz papers

Abstract: 

Correspondence and research materials relating to Kaunitz's work on the link between endemic ergotism and thromboangiitis obliterans ("Buerger's Disease"). Most of it relates to a paper he read at the 1954 meeting of the American Medical Association, in which he warned that the excessive consumption of rye bread might be a contributing factor in the disease.

There is also a small amount of general professional correspondence, an incomplete set of his scientific articles, and a few reprints from other authors.
