Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Daniel Israel Arnon Papers contain correspondence, manuscripts of his writings, grant files, laboratory notebooks, experimental data, drawings for slides, research notes, lectures and speeches, awards and honors, and biographical information, which document his distinguished career at U.C. Berkeley.
Daniel Israel Arnon was born in Warsaw, Poland, on November 14, 1910. He completed his B.S. degree in 1932, and his Ph.D. in plant physiology and biochemistry in 1936, both at the University of California, Berkeley. His doctoral dissertation examined the role of trace elements in nitrogen metabolism in plants. After military service in World War II, he set up and directed an experimental nutrient culture center on Ascension Island in the mid-Atlantic Ocean, for the United States Army Air Corps. Except for this military service and sabbatical leaves in England, Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, and Pacific Grove, California, he spent his entire career at U.C. Berkeley.
