About this work


The Personal Papers series consists of files that Dr. Brenner identified as "personal" and is divided into four subseries: The Awards and Honors subseries (SB/5/1) consists of files related to the numerous honors Dr. Brenner has received throughout his career. The Biographical subseries (SB/5/2) includes Brenner's curriculum vitae, publication lists, and a biography of May Brenner. The third subseries, Finances (SB/5/3), consists of records regarding income, donations, receipts, and travel expenses. The final 4 boxes of the series consists of Diaries and Planners (SB/5/4) that document Brenner's day-to-day activities from 1980-2006 (See also: Intineraries in the Subject Files (SB/4/1)).
