Acquisition and appraisal elements
According to Dr. Howard Hamilton, when Dr. Hamilton was the Chief of Clinical Laboratories Dr. Akio Awa was the assistant to the Chief and head of the Chromosome Section. Dr. Awa and Dr. Hamilton would sit next to each other during many of these staff meetings, and Dr. Awa would create these ‘doodles.’ Dr. Awa would leave his cartoons behind, and Dr. Hamilton reported collecting them afterwards. The ‘originals’ or those that represent the ‘Ur-text’ are found in folder 1, and these were donated in 2002 by Dr. Hamilton. The additional folders 2-4 were donated before 2002, and the cartoons in these folders were called copies to the originals by Dr. Hamilton.
