Archives


Welcome to the CSHL Archives, a major repository of primary material on the history of the life sciences and medical research in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. In addition to institutional records from the lab, its precursor institutions, and its funding bodies, the archives contain personal collections of nearly three dozen significant individuals from CSHL and around the world, a large repository of oral-history interviews, and documents from nearly a century’s worth of international symposia on the life sciences.
