Norman Jolliffe papers


Diaries, reprints of scientific articles, photographs, genealogical material, certificates, and awards. The bulk of the papers consists of the diaries Jolliffe kept intermittently from 1935 to a few months before his death. While they primarily record his research at Bellevue Hospital and, later, at the New York City Dept. of Health, the diaries cover a wide range of personal and professional matters.

Of particular interest is his record of a European trip made in 1937 to study alcoholism research for the Rockefeller Foundation. He also kept a diary during two visits to Newfoundland in 1944 and 1948 while conducting a survey of nutritional needs for its government. Other items of interest are photographs and newspaper clippings documenting Jolliffe's work for the Cuban government in 1955-56; and letters written by him and his wife during a professional trip and vacation to East Asia (primarily Taiwan), India, and Europe in 1954-55
