Biographical/Historical Sketch: The Rockefeller University, established in 1901 by John D. Rockefeller as The Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, was the first institution in the United States devoted solely to biomedical research. The earliest work was carried on through grants-in-aid to researchers in various American (and a few European) laboratories, but that program was phased out after the Institute's own laboratories were opened on its New York City campus in 1906. In 1954, the Institute became part of the University of the State of New York and acquired the right to confer graduate degrees, awarding its first Ph.D. in 1959. The Institute became The Rockefeller University in 1965.

The University archives delineate the growth of research programs which from the beginning were aimed at developing fundamental knowledge of disease and physiology. Research is carried out in interdisciplinary laboratories headed by leading scientists, who were known for more than fifty years as Members of the Institute and subsequently as Professors. A hospital was opened in 1910 and has remained an integral part of the research program.

Scope: Documents in the archives include correspondence and memoranda, reports, laboratory notebooks, lectures and addresses, administrative records, and photographs and films. The material covers all periods of the University's history, and documents significantly aspects of the twentieth century history of New York City, of international currents in biomedical research, and of educational and scientific developments in the United States.

The open records, papers and special collections of the University are documented in more than 200 finding aids summarized below. Each finding aid hyperlink -- example (FA211) -- links directly to DIMES, the RAC collection guide website.

Each brief summary also provides title, date, extent, and the Former Classification (FC) of the collection, discontinued from active use by RAC in 2009. For records transferred to RAC prior to 1990, the Former Classification number can be referenced in the Rockefeller University Index Cards. (FA1068)
