Collection Scope and Content Notes


This series contains published manuscripts and relating draft materials, research data sheets, graphs, notes, correspondence, publication submission forms, peer-review documents, and publication proof materials from the latter majority of Shapiro's professional career. During this time, Shapiro's research continued to examine the relationship between stress and hypertension, hypertension and renal function related to systemic scleroderma, as well as pharmacologic and behavioral treatments to control hypertension. Throughout this period, Shapiro was also becoming more involved with the administration of the University of Pittsburgh's medical school, Presbyterian University Hospital, and Shadyside Hospital, where he served, at various times, as dean for academic affairs, chairman of the credentials committee, and director of the internal medicine training program respectively. His service in these capacities is reflected in several publications that critique medical training at universities and hospitals. Documents are arranged chronologically.
