THE ROYAL SOCIETY THE ROYAL COMMISSION ON HISTORICAL MANUSCRIPT: Joint Committee on Scientific and Technological Records C8ac 39/3/76 CONTEMPORARY SCIENTIFIC ARCHIVES CENTRE Papers of PROFESSOR IVAN DE BURGH DALY, F.R.S. (1893 - 1974) Listed by Jeannine Alton Harriot Weiskittel Deposited in the Wellcome institute for the History of Medicine London 1976 I. de B. Daly csac 39/3/76 Description of the collection t The papers cover the years 1858 — 1974 and were received from Professor Michael de Burgh Daly, elder son of Ivan de Burgh Daly, who retains some biographical material. 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 Daly also retains the original draft and related manuscripts, notes and correspondence of an unpublished monograph entitled ‘Intrinsic Lung Mechanisms’. Mie 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.
