Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Allan Wilson Papers, 1953-1996 document Wilson's career as a biochemist. The bulk of the collection focuses on his twenty-six year tenure at the University of California, Berkeley, but his education is also well documented within the collection. Included are copies of his publications and those of his lab as well as working papers for both published and unpublished manuscripts. Also included are his lecture notes and other teaching materials. Wilson's correspondence files are especially rich, documenting not only his dialogues with colleagues but his close work with his students and numerous protégés.
Allan Wilson was born in Ngaruawahia, New Zealand, on October 18, 1934 and raised on a farm at Helvetia, Pukekohe. He began his education in New Zealand where he earned a B.S. in Zoology and Chemistry from Otago University. Wilson moved to the United States to pursue his graduate education, earning a M.S. from Washington State University in Zoology and Physiology and completing his Ph.D. in Biochemistry at the University of California, Berkeley (1961).
