Dr. Edwin Harry Medlin (1920-2013)
Papers 1960-2000

MSS 378.94 M4915m

Notes

These papers largely comprise personal copies of the minutes, reports, agenda papers, correspondence, etc of the University bodies and related associations of which Dr. Medlin was a member or to which he otherwise contributed.  Many documents are annotated and provide additional commentary upon the official record.  A number of files {Series 15, 26, 66-67} contain personal references or documents on sensitive issues and are under indefinite embargo: requests for access to these will be referred to Dr. Medlin.

The bulk of this collection was presented by Dr. Medlin in January 1977 and January 1983, with additional papers received in 1996 [series 68] and in February 2000 [series 27-28 and 70-72]

This collection was transferred to University Archives in July 2016.
