Salk Archives

The Salk Archives constitutes an exhaustive source of documentation of the professional activities of Jonas Salk, including correspondence, writings and related materials concerning a diverse range of persons and public issues of the late 20th century. Most of the papers cover the period from the mid-1940s to the early 1980's. Best documented are Salk's activities from the mid-1950s to the early 1960s -- activities largely related to the development of the Salk polio vaccine and the establishment of the Salk Institute. Also included in the collection are materials created by Salk's laboratory staff members and papers generated by offices and staff of the Salk Institute.
