For Additional Reading on Curt Richter and the Psychobiology Laboratory

In 2005 the Johns Hopkins University Press published a new authoritative study on Curt Richter and his laboratory. The JHU press writes, "For this book, Jay Schulkin mined six decades of Richter's archived research data, personal documents, and interviews to flesh out an engaging portrait of a "laboratory artisan" in the context of his work."

The Johns Hopkins Magazine published an article by Lynne Lamberg in 1997 entitled, "Preserving the Life of a Lab". It notes, "Curt Richter, the man known as the "father of the biological clock," worked for nearly 60 years at Hopkins. The vast hoard of data he left behind is an archivist's dream--and nightmare."
