Scope and content
This series includes correspondence and papers by other scientists sent to Dr. Wilson, which he then annotated. The correspondence and papers are filed under the name of the individual concerned. There are also files on areas of research interest, the titles of which were supplied by Dr. Wilson and are therefore in quotation marks (this list is very selective). Also included are the card indices he compiled; they are further described below.
