Collection Overview


Karl Friedrich Meyer photograph collection


Meyer, Karl-Friedrich, 1884-1974, creator


Photographs relating to Meyer's medical research career at UC Berkeley. Photos focus on public health, effects of diseases on animals, veterinary medicine, and epidemiology. Collection includes studio portraits of Meyer, contemporary portraits and group portraits of his colleagues, portraits (including prints) of famous historical scientists, and miscellaneous professional photographs such as photos of scientific tables and charts. An early 20th century album on experimental food canning from the National Canners Association is present. The majority of photographs are from Meyer's 1956 professional trip to Russia as part of the United States Medical Mission on Microbiology and Epidemiology to the Soviet Union. Oversize items consist of a group portrait and a portrait of a colleague(?), "Hal".
