Dr. Arnold B. Scheibel had a long and internationally recognized career in research, teaching, and administration, spent almost
entirely at the Brain Research Institute, University of California, Los Angeles. Grounded in both Neuroanatomy and Psychiatry,
he sought to describe the microanatomical brain substrates that underlie behavior and disease. This collection contains manuscripts
of his research publications and various more general topics, and is especially rich in correspondence with colleagues worldwide.
Video tapes and compact discs document presentations of some of his renowned neuroscience class lectures.
Arnold Bernard Scheibel was born in New York in 1923, received his undergraduate education at Horace Mann High School and
Columbia College, then obtained an M.D. degree from Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1946. Part of his time
in medical school, as well as his internship, residency, and two years of active service were spent as a member of the U.S.
Army Medical Corps. Originally Dr. Scheibel had intended to specialize in cardiology, but his interest was drawn to psychiatry
during his internship and he obtained a year's psychiatry residency at Washington University, St. Louis. In 1948 he began
his active Army service as Staff Physician in Neuropsychiatry, Brooke General Hospital, San Antonio, Texas, where he also
served as Psychiatrist in a Child Guidance Clinic which he helped to develop.
