William B. Dunning papers


The bulk of the Dunning papers documents his professional career from about 1900 to 1940. His work as an editor of the Journal of the Allied Dental Societies and his involvement with Columbia University's School of Dental and Oral Surgery (since 2006, known as the College of Dental Medicine) are particularly well-documented. Major correspondents include S.E. Davenport, Sr., S.E. Davenport, Jr., William J. Gies, Edward Kirk, Henry S. Dunning, and J. Howard Reed. The papers also include some documents and many dental instruments and other artifacts belonging to Henry S. Dunning, William's brother.
