Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The bulk of the collection consists of paper documents, plus approximately 25,000 feet of motion pictures, over 400 slides, photographs, and a few artifacts. The materials span the years 1918-1986.
William Frederick Windle, Ph.D., D.Sc. (1898-1985), born and educated in the U.S. Midwest, became an eminent neuroscientist working on both coasts and welcomed internationally. Dr. Windle did his undergraduate studies at Denison University in Ohio. His plans for a medical career were turned aside after two years in medical school by his long and fruitful collaboration with Stephen Walter Ranson of the Institute of Neurology, Northwestern University. That collaboration started in 1921, led to Windle's Ph.D. degree in anatomy from Northwestern and, some twenty years later, to the directorship of that same Institute of Neurology.
