The collection consists primarily of Professor Daly's meticulous | Professor Michael de Burgh | records of experiments (see note on page 4). | Daly also retains the original draft and related manuscripts, notes and correspondence of an unpublished monograph entitled ‘Intrinsic Lung Mechanisms'. The collection also includes one box of correspondence with (and biographical information regarding) several eminent physiologists. All items are manuscript unless otherwise indicated; titles in inverted commas are those which appear on the manuscripts.
