This series contains items related to the life of the laboratory and dog surgery. Extending across his time at Vanderbilt and Johns Hopkins, this material gives a sense of Thomas’ numerous roles as teacher, researcher and laboratory manager. The contents are separated into two groups, the first being ‘Laboratory Notebooks and Manuals’ which were created for Thomas’ own research purposes and for teaching others. The volume of charts showing the failed convalescence of dogs indicates something of the laboriousness of perfecting the Taussig-Blalock shunt. The second section features laboratory administration materials which include job applications, receipts of laboratory purchases and correspondence with educational institutions on the topic of laboratory visits.
Each of the two sections is in its own separate box and organized chronologically where possible. ‘Laboratory Notebooks and Materials’ additionally contains a shoebox featuring notecards.
