  • MS 076
  • Colección
  • 1896-1965

The Philip S. Hench, MD, papers (MS 076) is 100 cubic feet of papers, correspondence, reprints, research documents, newspaper articles, photographs, glass slides, sheet music, and audiovisual materials. The collection contains Dr. Hench's personal and professional documents from his childhood, 1896, to his death, 1965. These papers provide information about his family and life, including his service in World War II, his contributions to medical research in rheumatic diseases, his Nobel Award and other awards. Dr. Hench, a co-developer of cortisone as a anti-inflammatory treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, was a joint winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1950.

Most of the material is in English; however, some correspondence, reprints, and news articles are in Spanish, French, Italian, Norwegian or German. Much of the documentation connected to the Nobel Prize is in Norwegian. The collection consists 192 boxes, 2 oversize boxes, 2 boxes of phonographic discs, a 16mm film, and a large-format poster stored in the map cases. The materials are in good condition. Many of the phonographic discs have been digitized.

Hench, Philip Showalter
