About this work


The Medical Research Council (MRC) Notebooks subseries (SB/6/2) is composed of material included in Brenner's 2010 accession. This large set of laboratory material was generally housed in green MRC 3-ring binders, which were discarded during processing. Like the previous subseries, titles for the files were derived from the original notebook labels when available. The files have been arranged chronologically, and date from 1955 to 1992. Several of the notebooks belonged to other members of Brenner's laboratory (Muriel Wigby, Leslie Barnett, etc.), and some of Francis Crick's notebooks have been included in the subseries. There is some overlap with material found in the previous subseries.
