Series III. Published Abstracts and Discussions, 1950-1997

Scope and Content Notes:

This series includes published abstracts, discussions, and presentations, as well as relating research study data sheets, notes, graphs, correspondence, and publication submission forms from the whole of Shapiro's professional life. Shapiro was interested in the medical issues surrounding hypertension and its treatment from very early in his career, and the documents in this series most fully illustrate the evolution of hypertension research from the 1950s through the 1990s. Many of the early materials in this series document early research and testing that link stress to increased instances of hypertension and other medical problems, particularly issues related to renal function and pyelonephritis. Later documents focus largely on the efficacy of non-pharmacologic treatments for hypertension and hypertension related to scleroderma. Also included in this section are published book reviews and letters to the editor. Documents are arranged chronologically.

Access Restrictions:

Some files in this section include the personal and medical information of human study subjects and access is governed by certain restrictions. In Box 2, Folders 28, 42, and 94 are restricted.
