George Davis Snell Papers
GEORGE DAVIS SNELL PAPERS (1903-1996)
Title: George D. Snell Papers, 1903-1996.
Origin: Papers concerning George Snell’s scientific work were found in The Jackson Laboratory in March 1996; but the majority of his papers were donated in 1997 through deed of gift by Tom and Roy Snell, sons of George and Rhoda Snell. NOTE: A note found taped to a box of correspondence: “All my scientific correspondence and related papers should be sent to: Dr. Whitfield J. Bell, Jr., Executive Officer and Librarian, American Philosophical Society, 104 South Fifth St., Philadelphia, PA 19106 (The Society is gathering material re history of scientists.)”
Copyright: Copyright and literary property rights for any unpublished manuscripts remain the property of Tom and Roy Snell.
Inclusive Dates of the Collection: 1924-1996.
Accession number & Location: 97.025.Snell; Box 25, F1-F14 and 18 boxes (cartons) of material stored in Morrell Park, Collection #55. Photographs have been separated and are listed in the Photograph Collection database, #2345L; including research material, histology, lecture slides, personal and professional images. Slides are listed in the same database, #2345L, but are housed in a separate notebook.
Arrangement: Organized into eight series, the material is inconsistent within each series; it overlaps, and has misfilings, but retains Dr. Snell’s original system. Obvious misfilings have been corrected. Sources other than Dr. Snell’s own files, such as data notebooks found at The Jackson Laboratory, are noted.

Scope and Content: (To be added when the collection is fully processed.) Box 25 contains material from The Jackson Laboratory Public Information Office that has been added to the Snell Personal Papers collection: speeches, papers, autobiography, interviews and added comments, including photographs of Dr. Snell and his family. Some related material about the “H-2 Club” are included in Box 25, F12. In June 2000, additional papers were deposited by Pat Cherry, typist for Dr. Snell during his emeritus years, from the hard drive on her computer. These manuscripts are also found in Box 25.
SERIES I. CORRESPONDENCE FILES:
The correspondence files of Dr. Snell are organized into two parts, name/subject files and chronological files. There has been no attempt to rearrange or combine letters from the two separate series, even though there are many overlaps; i.e., individual letters in the chronological files may also have separate folders in the alphabetic files. The following lists include both in-coming and out-going correspondence, some bulk mail, and as found. Indented names include correspondence found with the previous title. The folder titles are exact; alphabetical files from A-W; and chronological files from 1973-1996.
