Series 6 Photographs 1947-1987

Physical Description: Boxes 1-2

Arrangement

Arranged as received.

Scope and Content Note

Laboratory and other miscellaneous personal photographs are found in this series. Of particular interest are photographs of the 1955 team of National Institute of Health scientists: Bruce Ames, Leon Heppel, and Bill Pricer, among others. Included are a collection of largely unidentified negatives and slides. In addition, there are photo prints of Rabinowitz's 1987 laboratory team, the 1945 University of Wisconsin Biochemistry Department, and the 1949 Enzyme Research Institute team. A number of the negatives appear to be of the 1963 Barker Hall construction on the University of California, Berkeley campus. Although Rabinowitz was an amateur travel photographer, this collection does not represent these pursuits. Rabinowtiz's extensive personal slide collection may be found at the McHenry Library of University of California, Santa Cruz.
