Title: Donald W. Bailey Papers.

Originator / Donor: Donald W. Bailey, 1999.

Dates: 1953-1989.

Accession Number and Location: 99.004.Bailey; 6 cu.ft.; Boxes (cartons) 64.1– 64.6, Morrell Park storeroom.

Arrangement: As found, by original box title and folder title (dates added), somewhat chronological. One additional folder of papers found separately in the storeroom. (Box 4, *F23)

Biography: [To be added later.]

Scope and Content: The collection consists of scientific, administrative, and personal papers, with the majority concerning Donald Bailey’s work at The Jackson Laboratory from 1973 until retirement in 1989. Besides the material relating to his scientific work, of particular interest are the years 1988-89, when Bailey assumed the directorship of TJL; but also, the papers dealing with the end of the behavior genetics program in 1978, and the labor and employment controversies of the 1970s.  No effort has been made to retrospectively arrange the material, so loose papers are found interlaced between labeled and unlabeled folders, and the folders frequently contain material not related to their titles. There are also several folders dealing with confidential personnel matters.

Restrictions: Correspondence and papers regarding personnel matters of employees of The Jackson Laboratory are not available without permission of the subject employee.
