The papers of Dr Kellogg currently held at UCSF primarily relate to his own education, teaching, and research. There is little
material in reflecting his personal life, and almost no correspondence relating to any of these topics.
Ralph Henderson Kellogg has been a professor of physiology at UCSF for many years. He was born in New London, Connecticut
in 1920, graduated from medical school at the University of Rochester in 1943, and served as a medical officer in the US Navy
for the duration of World War II. In 1946 Kellogg briefly acted as an Investigator in Physiology at Bethesda's Naval Medical
Research Institute, then taught first year medical students at Harvard Medical School, while acquiring his Ph.D. in Physiology
from Harvard in 1953.
