Portée et contenu

This series contains Sir Anthony and his collaborators' laboratory notebooks, along with images of experiments. The notebooks detail a number of techniques for growing malignant cells, isolating the Epstein-Barr virus, and imaging experimental samples.

Sub-series C/2 contains three notebooks belonging to Dr Bert G. Achong. Achong co-discovered the Epstein-Barr virus alongside Sir Anthony and Dr Yvonne Balding (née Barr) using electron microscopy imaging techniques. Sub-series C/7 contains photographs and negatives of experiments. Sub-series D/6–8, D/18, D/20, and D/22 contain correspondence relevant to research work.

Appraisal, destruction and scheduling


System of arrangement

The laboratory notebooks have been grouped according to area of research for ease of reference. Internally, the data is arranged by numbered experiment, specific cell lines, and cultures, and the date is entered chronologically for the experiment. This explains apparent inconsistencies with the dates. The experiments were conducted by different technicians.
