Biography: Clarence Cook Little was born into an established Boston family in 1888, in Brookline, Massachusetts. He attended Noble and Greenough School and Harvard University, earning his D.Sc. in 1914. After holding several positions at Harvard, and serving in the Army Signal Corps in WWI, Little spent three years at the Experimental Evolution Station at Cold Spring Harbor, New York, where he published numerous papers and established his first inbred strains of mice. In 1922, at the age of 33, Little became President of the University of Maine; he maintained his work in mammalian genetics and established a summer laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine. Three years later he accepted the Presidency of the University of Michigan and instituted wide-ranging reforms and program expansions. In 1929, with financial help from the Ford, Webber and Jackson families of Detroit, Little returned to Bar Harbor to establish a laboratory for the study of mammalian genetics and cancer. In the same year he assumed directorship of  The American Cancer Society. He retired from The Roscoe B. Jackson Memorial Laboratory in 1956, and accepted the position of scientific director of the Tobacco Industrial Research Committee, which he held until he died in 1971. Dr. Little’s work and interests covered a wide field; he was a tireless campaigner for greater awareness about cancer and cancer treatments, a strong advocate of birth control, active in church activities, a great supporter of social functions, and a favorite dog show judge. He was a popular man - known by his friends as “Prexy” or “Pete” - always concerned with social relations and harmony.  A member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and many other scientific societies, Dr. Little received numerous honorary degrees and awards. His publications included 188 articles, and The Awakening College, W.W. Norton, 1930; Civilization against Cancer   New York, Farrar & Rinehart, Inc. 150pp., 1939. ; Cancer, A Study for Laymen. New York, Farrar & Rinehart, Inc., 1944.; Genetics, Medicine and Man. Ithaca, Cornell University Press. 159pp. 1947.; Genetics, Biological Individuality, and Cancer. Stanford, Stanford University Press. 115pp.,1954.; The Inheritance of Coat Color in Dogs.  Ithaca, Comstock Publishing Associates. 194pp.,1957. C.C. Little was married twice, first to Katherine Day Andrews and secondly to Beatrice Winifred Johnson, and had five children; Louise, Robert, Edward, Richard, and Laura.

Scope and Content: For the most part, the papers cover the last year of C.C. Little’s directorship of the Roscoe B. Jackson Memorial Laboratory, 1954; but also include earlier correspondence and material relevant to continuing issues.  His filing system was alphabetical, but not always consistent. As found, there are two alphabetic series, and a third collection of manuscript papers. Some titled folders were found empty (Kean, Mrs. Louis H.; Kerstig, Brown & Co.; I ); papers and correspondence found outside but close to a relevant folder have been placed within that folder. Most of the correspondence consists of letter copies prepared by Geraldine (Gerry) Canning, Little’s secretary; some letters contain notes and/or shorthand notes, as well as doodles, and there are letter copies of correspondence from other members of the staff for whom Canning typed. Business and personal letters are intermingled with schedules and routine information. The correspondence of 1954-5 reflects a pivotal year in Dr. Little’s life; not only the change in status from Director to President, but his pending retirement from the Laboratory and the intense professional and private criticism for one of his scientific conclusions. (See Tobacco Industry Research Committee Report, 1961; Box 73.) Other papers include photocopies of deeds and incorporation documents. (The Charles B. Dorr deed of gift, map and building permit are found in early organizational papers, Box 12.6 of TJLA.) Throughout the transitions of this time Dr. Little maintained the courtesy and professionalism for which he was well-known. The papers reflect a man at the peak of a very full life.

            The majority of C.C. Little’s papers can be found in the Special Collections of the Fogler Library at the University of Maine, Orono, and at the University of Michigan.

            The Joan Staats Library at The Jackson Laboratory is in the process of acquiring the complete bibliography of C.C. Little.
