Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Records of the Office of Public Affairs of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI), a biomedical research, educational and clinical institution first located on Prospect Street in La Jolla, California, and later moved to Torrey Pines mesa. The collection contains public relations materials, including photographs, correspondence, brochures, reports, newspaper clippings, and publications.
A philanthropic gift by Ellen Browning Scripps in 1924 led to the foundation of the Scripps Metabolic Clinic on Prospect Street in La Jolla, California. The early clinic was dedicated to research, education and patient treatment in the field of metabolic diseases, especially diabetes. For the first three decades of its existence, the Clinic grew slowly and remained largely outside the mainstream of medical and scientific research being conducted on the East Coast.
