About this work


The Phage Studies subseries is primarily composed of a series of Phage Information Service newsletters published between 1948 and 1956. The study of bacterophages was of particular interest to Dr. Watson early in his scientific career. The subseries also includes material related to the 1952 International Phage Symposium and the 1965 European Phage Meeting. Other documents of note include Watson’s lab notes from the Bacterial Viruses course at Cold Spring Harbor (1956).
