The Papers of Harold Wayland (1909-2000), Caltech Professor of Engineering Science, 1949-1979, are a small collection of personal,
scientific, and institutionally related documents. They cover aspects of Wayland's scientific work on microcirculation, his
invention of the intravital microscope, and Caltech's support in the late 1960s-early 1970s for a biomedical engineering program
and discussion of a medical school in Pasadena.
Harold Wayland was born in Boise, Idaho, on July 2, 1909. His first name was James, but apart from the occasional appearance
of the initial J. before his name, he typically dropped his first name or initial on his scientific publications.
