Creator: Baker, Susan
Box 060 contains files with titles beginning with the letters I-Le. Subject files in this box pertain to the following topics: Iceland; impairment scaling; in-line skating; Indians (Native Americans); the Indian Health Service (U. S. Department of Health and Human Services); infection; injury scaling; injury severity; instruction (flight training); interstate (highway system); Injury Severity Score (ISS); inventions; intelligent vehicle highway systems (IVHS); jokes (humorous materials); kidney disease program; knives; labeling (consumer products); laborers; ladders; landmines; laser brake lights; lead (paint and leaded gasoline); and legislation and legislators.
Files include correspondence with the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in which Baker discusses her early research and writings on motor vehicle injuries, including noticing a high rate of infant deaths in data on automobile accidents. These correspondence contain many letters between Baker and William Haddon. Baker, Haddon, and others at IIHS correspond about research ideas, data, their papers, presentations, guest lecturers from IIHS speaking in Baker’s courses, as well as IIHS’s funding of Baker’s research. This box of Materials includes correspondence and people files; student files, personnel files; research files; teaching files; publication files pertaining to Baker’s book, The Injury Fact Book and its revision; and records pertaining to research funding. There are also files titled, “ideas” and files titled “Injury Information Center,” a project of the federal Division of Epidemiology and Control to “develop a system to collect and disseminate information on injury control and research findings.”
The ABC files cover every facet of Baker’s professional working life, including research; committee work within the Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health; her teaching at Hopkins, as well as external projects to educate professionals about safety issues in their field; and her efforts toward developing the injury control program at Johns Hopkins. Materials document Baker’s extensive involvement, as a consultant, advisory panel member, and leader, with professional associations, federal agencies, and scientific organizations committed to injury prevention. They pertain to Baker’s presentations at conferences and workshops; her publications; and her receipt of honors and awards. Within each box, Baker has arranged these papers in alphabetical order by topic (organization name, professional activity, or research subject). These files, even within individual folders, include a mix of material types and cover a wide range of professional activities.
