(1) Rockefeller Foundation: 25.2.48 (acc.301851)

The following were sent by Professor A.V. Hill to Dr Poynter, WIHM, March 1970 (Lib. Acc No 319207). A copy of A.V. Hill's covering letter is included.

1. Letter from J.S. Rosenthal re dog presented to Pavlov by Cambridge students: : 4 Nov 1936

2. Letters by or about Leon Orbeli, 1936-57 including letter from V.A. Engelhardt and translation with A.V. Hill's reply, 4 June 1957

3. Translation of extract from Orbeli's Reminiscences, published after his death.

Historical Background A.V. Hill was Professor of Physiology at the University of Manchester (1920-23) and University College London (1923-25) and Secretary of the Royal Society from 1935. He incorporated the liberation of energy in muscles and in 1922 shared the Nobel Prize for physiology and medicine with Otto Meyerhof.
Acquisition Details The following miscellaneous letters were sent by Professor Hill to the Wellcome Institute Library in several batches between 1955-1970. A few typed carbon copies of Hill's replies are included. The letters were assigned library accession numbers prior to transfer to the Contemporary Medical Archives Centre and these have been included in the list for reference. There are two letters from Ivan Pavlov: the second, dated 13 Feb 1929 was presumably to A.V. Hill and evidently given to the Wellcome Institute separately. One letter from Stephen Paget to Prof. Starling has been placed at the end of the list, as have photocopies of Royal Society of Medicine dinner signatures. Photocopies of additional correspondence given by Hill in 1970 are also placed at the end.
