Scope and Content

James Angus Jenkins was born in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada in 1904. He received both his B. Sc. and M. Sc. from the University of Saskatchewan in biology in 1927 and 1929 respectively, and his Ph.D from the University of California in genetics in 1936. With the exception of only a few years he taught genetics continuously on the Berkeley Campus from 1938 until his death in 1965. He was a Guggenheim Foundation Fellow in 1945-1946.
His prime interest within the field of genetics was in plants and plant breeding, especially the tomato. His interest in the tomato, its origin and evolution, took him on extended research forays to Central and South America, and he was primarily responsible for the extensive tomato research plot on the Berkeley Campus of the University of California.
The collection, a gift of Mrs. Jenkins in 1965, remains largely as it was originally arranged by Jenkins. It contains correspondence, files relating to his activities in the Department of Genetics, the College of Agriculture, and the University, his teaching career, and his own research.

Key to Arrangement

Carton 1

Correspondence

Arrangement

The correspondence is filed alphabetically, both incoming and outgoing correspondence in the same folder. There are usually two miscellanies for each letter of the alphabet, one for general correspondence and the other for correspondence relating to tomatoes. Occasionally correspondence discussing a third person has been filed under that person's name. A partial list of correspondents will be found at the end of this report.
