The papers of Alfred Henry Sturtevant at the Archives of the California Institute of Technology are a rich source for the
study of both the social and intellectual history of genetics. The papers, presented to the Archives in 1970 as a gift from
his widow, Mrs. Phoebe Sturtevant, total fifty boxes: six boxes of correspondence, four of personal material, four of material
(including correspondence) pertaining to the genetic effects of radiation, ten boxes of manuscripts, nineteen boxes of laboratory
notebooks, and seven boxes of miscellany.
