Series IV:
Correspondence with Organizations
    Subseries B, C and D: Correspondence with hospitals, research institutions, educational institutions, and foundations (ca. 2,000 items, Boxes 76-82) consists mainly of seminar announcements, invitations to lectures, and fund raising. The correspondence with Johns Hopkins, however, is a useful source of information about Gantt's employment. The correspondence with his two alma maters, the University of Virginia and the University of North Carolina, is replete with fund raising requests.

Sub-series IV/A:
General Society
    Gantt received letters from 248 different societies; he himself was, at one time or another, a member of more than 50 of these societies. The correspondence with societies is sizable (ca. 2480 letters) though mostly perfunctory, consisting of the usual announcements of meetings, calls for papers, and other routine business. Gantt was an officer in two American societies - The American Psychopathological Society (President, 1960) and the Society of Biological Psychiatry (Vice-President, 1958, President, 1959, Councilor, 1956-1964). He was also an active sponsor of two international societies - the Collegium Internationale Activitatis Nervosae Superioris (CIANS) and the Collegium Internationale Neuro-Psycho Pharmacologicum (CINP). As a result of his official role, correspondence concerning those societies is slightly more substantive. In addition, Gantt was quite active in the Baltimore City Medical Society. He played a part in the desegregation of that Society, serving on the "Committee Concerning the Admission of Negro Physicians" in 1948. In the committee report, Gantt wrote that admitting Negro physicians was necessary to "place the Baltimore Medical Society on record in support of professional fairness and freedom from prejudice." (Report, Baltimore Medical Society Committee Concerning the Admission of Negro Physicians, 1948. Box 71/5). Sizable correspondence was also conducted with the American Neurological Association, the American Medical Association, the American Physiological Society, and the American Psychiatric Association.
