Articles, abstracts, talks, papers, lectures

During his long career Dr. Little wrote extensively on the results of his research. Many of these were collaborative products with colleagues, research associates and students and were published in scholarly scientific and other publications. Among his co-authors are Dr. W. Carl Breckenridge, former associate professor in the Department of Medicine, University of Toronto, and former Director of the Core Laboratory of the Lipid Research Project in the 1970s [1], Dr. Arnis Kuksis, professor of biochemistry in the U. of T.’s Banting & Best Department of Medical Research (and Breckenridge’s doctorate supervisor), and Dr. Philip Connelly, professor in the University of Toronto Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology and Director of the J. Alick Little Research Laboratory at St. Michael’s Hospital, Toronto. Dr. Little was also invited to make presentations at conferences, meetings of organizations of medical professionals, and to community groups. As part of his teaching responsibilities, he lectured to medical students and residents at St. Michael’s Hospital and other teaching hospitals in Toronto and the province. He has continued to publish, speak and present the results of his many years of research after his retirement in 1988.

This series contains a comprehensive record of his writings, both published and unpublished and is far more extensive than his curriculum vitae. Conversely, files relating to some of his publications done in collaboration with others will not be found in this series. As well, official reports on the Lipid Research Clinic project are also not included, and researchers are referred to the records of the Lipid Research Clinic in A2002-0009. Group photographs from the Fifth (1980) and Eighth (1984) Canadian Lipoprotein Conferences are part of this series as well as some lecture slides and publication illustrations.

Arranged chronologically by date of publication or production of work. See Appendix A for list of publications, abstracts and lectures extracted from Dr. Little’s 1992 curriculum vitae and annotated with box and file reference. When photographs have been removed both the file and appendix has been annotated with the location of the photographs.
