Series Description

 

Notes

Scope and Content Note

A major focus of this series is the Pain and Suffering manuscript. These notes and typescripts were meant to contribute to Livingston's book Pain and Suffering , on which he was working at the time of his death. The rest of the series comprises drafts of lectures, annotated articles, largely manuscript subject files, and the like.
 

Correspondence

Scope and Content Note

This brief series is a mixture of chronological, alphabetical, and subject correspondence folders. Incoming as well as, less often, outgoing correspondence is represented.
 

Case Histories, Inactive and Non-Missile

Scope and Content Note

These World War II case histories (1943-50) detail hundreds of peripheral nerve casualties and pain cases treated by Dr. Livingston. In addition to extensive notes and follow-ups, almost every case file contains drawings by Livingston showing areas of injury, pain sensation, nerve damage, etc. They are resticted.
 

Patient Files

Scope and Content Note

This restricted material comes from two original Livingston boxes, one labelled "Patient Files A-Z Plus Misc" and the other labelled "Patient Files." The original folders for most of this series had additional information (usually names) written on them. Archival copies of that information have been made and inserted into each final, acid-free folder.
 

Personal

Scope and Content Note

This brief series comprises military records, newspaper clippings (including book reviews and WKL obituaries), curriculum vitae files, and other materials of a personal nature.
