Series II: Works and Writings by R.Berg; Research Data and Notes

The series comprises published and unpublished articles, monographs, papers presented at conferences and congresses, talks, memoirs, reviews, prose and poetry, essays, extensive research notes and data. Arranged in five subseries.


Subseries II.1: Scientific Writings and Works on the History of Science,, 1937-2002

Typescripts, manuscripts, and reprints of writings on Drosophila research, genetics and the history of genetics, general biology and the history of biology. Materials are arranged in several groups: articles and talks, lectures, dissertations, monographs and projects (organized alphabetically within each group); collection of works; reviews, forewords, abstracts, grant proposals, expeditions logbooks, experiments and research logbooks and data (organized chronologically within each group); tables, data, and notes related to various unidentified research and works, slides, photographs, and microfilms with research data and reference materials don't have formal organization.
