Richard L. Crowell (1930- ) received his B.A. from the University of Buffalo in 1952, and M. A. (1954) and Ph. D (1958) from the University of Minnesota. He spent the majority of his career as a Professor in the Department of Microbiology, Hahnemann Medical College, from which he retired in 1995.
This collection contains materials relating to Dr. Crowell’s service to the American Society for Microbiology, covering primarily his terms as President-elect, President, and Immediate Past President (1990-1993).
There was no discernible order to the 6.5 linear feet of material originally received, so the series structure as described below is entirely new. In addition, original folder titles were not reliably accurate, so the titles listed below are also new. In the course of processing, some materials were moved to other folders, in order to facilitate retrieval.
SERIES 1: Personal Papers
SERIES 2: Council and Council Policy Committee
The Society is governed by a Council comprised of elected officers, chairmen of its permanent boards and representatives from 27 scientific divisions and 35 local Branches. A Council Policy Committee serves as Executive Committee for the Society. At the time of Crowell’s Presidency, these bodies met for governance functions during the Society’s General Meeting in May, and its Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC) in October. This series is arranged chronologically.
SERIES 3: Boards
SERIES 4: Committees
This series contains materials relating to Society committees which were not at the time affiliated with one of the permanent boards.
