Abstract

The maize geneticist Barbara McClintock (1902-1992) is credited with the discovery of "jumping genes," that is chromosomal "crossing over" and translocation. She received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1983.

The collection is organized into six series: I. Correspondence, 1931-1991; II. Subject files, 1938-1989; III. Works by McClintock, 1944-1989; IV. Works by others, 1927-1991; V. Research notes, notebooks, and card files, 1930s-1990s ; VI. Photographs, 1928-1991.

Background note

Barbara McClintock, a maize geneticist, was born in Hartford, Connecticut on 16 June 1902. In 1908 her family moved to Brooklyn, New York, where her interest in science began at Erasmus Hall High School. When she finished high school in 1919, McClintock enrolled, despite her parents' opposition, at Cornell University's College of Agriculture. Since the College would not allow women to major in plant breeding, McClintock majored in botany. At the end of her junior year, after having taken a genetics course, she was invited to take the graduate course in genetics and was unofficially made a graduate student. She received her B.A. in 1923, at which time approximately 25% of the graduates from the College of Agriculture were women. She went on to receive her Ph.D. in botany in 1927; her thesis advisor was Lester Sharp, a cytology professor in the Botany Department.

McClintock remained at Cornell doing research for another four years. Then, receiving a fellowship from the National Research Council, she studied and taught at the University of Missouri, California Institute of Technology, and Cornell University between 1931 and 1933. Cornell remained her home base, even though the University did not offer her a job. (The first woman assistant professor at Cornell in a field other than home economics was not appointed until 1947.) In 1933, McClintock received a Guggenheim Fellowship to study in Germany but returned within the year due to the depressed, troubled conditions in Germany. (The geneticist Curt Stern, with whom she had been planning to study, had already left the country.)

McClintock again did research at Cornell until 1936, working in Rollins Emerson's laboratory supported by the Rockefeller Foundation. That year, she moved to the University of Missouri at Columbia, where she was Assistant Professor of Botany until 1940. At that time, not having been offered an incentive to stay, she went to Cold Spring Harbor with Marcus Rhoades where she studied maize until the following November. In December 1941, when Milislav Demerec became Director of the Department of Genetics of the Carnegie Institution of Washington at Cold Spring Harbor, he offered her a one-year position, which was later made permanent. She remained Staff Member at the Carnegie Institution until 1967, when she became Distinguished Service Member.

During her tenure at the Carnegie Institution McClintock was also Consultant (from 1962 to 1969) to the Agricultural Science Program of the Rockefeller Foundation, which funded research in maize in South America. Much of this work involved discussing research results with, among others, Takeo A. Kato Yamakake and Almiro Blumenschein, with whom she later wrote a book, Chromosome Constitution of Races of Maize.

McClintock traced genes through the changes in the colored kernels of maize. In the 1930s she discovered "crossing over," in which chromosomes break and recombine to create genetic changes. In the 1950s, she discovered the occurrence of transposable genetic elements and their effect on gene expression; that is, that genes are not fixed like pearls on a string but that they move or "jump" around. She found the first jumping gene on the short arm of chromosome 9. Because the gene broke the chromosome into two parts, she called the gene "DS" or dissociation element. She called the jumping genes "control elements" because they inactivated neighboring genes on the chromosome. The element, which causes the gene to jump, she called "AC" or activator element.

McClintock's findings were ignored, partly because the complex development patterns of maize were not as clear to everyone else (especially non-maize geneticists) as they were to her. In the 1970s, molecular biologists isolated transposable elements in bacteria and discovered that they were used by cells to control genes, revealing the same discovery that McClintock had made twenty years earlier in maize.

In time, McClintock's work was appreciated and lauded. She received many awards for her research in maize, including an Award of Merit from the Botanical Society of America (1957), the Kimber Genetics Award from the National Academy of Science (1967), the National Medal of Science (1970), the Louis and Bert Freedman Foundation Award for Research in Biochemistry (1978), the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Prize (1978), the Lewis S. Rosenstiel Award (1978), the Albert Lasker Basic Medical Research Award (1981), the Wolf Foundation Award (1981), the Louisa Gross Horwitz Prize (1982), the Charles Leopold Mayer Prize (1982), and the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine (1983). McClintock was the first woman to win an unshared Nobel Prize in that category and the third woman to win an unshared Nobel Prize in science.

McClintock also received numerous honorary degrees, including those from Georgetown University, Harvard University, University of Cambridge, and Yale University. She was a member of various societies, including the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Institute of Biological Sciences, the American Philosophical Society, the American Society of Naturalists, the Botanical Society of America, the Genetics Society of America (by which she was elected Vice President in 1939 and the first woman President in 1945), the National Academy of Sciences (she was the third woman ever elected), the National Women's Hall of Fame, the New York Academy of Sciences, and the Royal Society of London.

Barbara McClintock died on 2 September 1992 at age ninety.

Scope and content

The Barbara McClintock Papers (1927-1991) contain correspondence, subject files, manuscripts of published and unpublished works by McClintock, papers by colleagues and students, research notes by McClintock and by students, and photographs, which document McClintock's career as a maize geneticist. It was thought for some time, according to the data collected by the Genetics Society of America in the late 1970s (see Bentley Glass, A Guide to the Collections of the American Philosophical Society), that McClintock had destroyed all of her papers except the research notes. Fortunately, after McClintock's death it was discovered that not everything had been destroyed. The bulk of the collection dates from the 1960s to the 1990s; there are some earlier materials dating from 1927, which McClintock had probably meant to destroy, but which were mixed in with research notes. The collection is mainly in English, but there are a few items in other languages, such as French and Spanish. These latter folders are marked, for example, "Some in Spanish" or "In Spanish," as appropriate.

The papers (124 boxes; 70.5 linear feet) are divided into six series:

Series I. Correspondence, 1931-1991(7 boxes; 3.25 linear feet)
Series II. Subject files, 1938-1989(3 boxes; 1 linear foot)
Series III. Works by McClintcok, 1944-1989(11 boxes; 5 linear feet)
Series IV. Works by others, 1927-1991(10 boxes; 4.5 linear feet)
Series V. Research notes and card files, 1930s-1990s(88 boxes; 55 linear feet)
Series VI. Photographs, 1928-1991(4 boxes; 1.5 linear feet)
Series I-VII. Oversize(1 box; .25 linear feet)

Materials of a personal nature appear in the following folders: Series I: Bhavnani, Mitz; Crowell, Mignon; Helfman, Arthur and Ruth; Willey, Genevra S.; Series II: McClintock, Sara and Thomas Henry -- 50th Wedding Anniversary; Series VI: Bhavnani, Mitz; Crowell, Frank and Mignon; McClintock, Sara; McClintock, Barbara, May 1985; McClintock, Barbara and David; McClintock, Barbara and Mitz Bhavnani; [McClintock, Malcolm Rider?]; McClintock, Sara and Mutty; McClintock Family; Unidentified, 1954, 1983, n.d.; Willey, Genevra S. and Tom.

Arrangement

Oversized materials follow the same series arrangement as noted above. Cross-referencing to oversized material appears on the folders in the standard sized boxes. All photographs and negatives have been removed from Series I-V and placed in Series VI. Cross-references appear in the original series. Reprints have been moved to the printed materials collection of the APS library. If a reprint was found as an enclosure, a photocopy of the title page was filed in its place. To retrieve reprints, consult the card catalog for printed materials. One 45 rpm audio recording called "The DOUBLE Talking HELIX Blues", which was given to McClintock by Ira Herskowitz was also removed from the collection. To retrieve this item, consult the card catalog for manuscript materials.

Collection overview
1931-1992 3.25 linear feet

Incoming and outgoing manuscript and typescript letters, carbons, telegrams, and postcards generated during McClintock's career. Series I is arranged alphabetically by correspondent's name and then chronologically within each folder. When a correspondence file includes letters to a third party (i.e., not McClintock), the name is indicated on the container list by using an indent under the folder title.

Unidentified correspondence has been filed as "Unidentified" and is arranged chronologically.

Enclosed manuscripts have been removed from this series and placed in Series III or IV as appropriate. As with the reprints, a photocopy of the title page was filed with the original letter. Cross-references are also given for enclosed photographs, which have been removed to Series VI. Letters of reference are filed under the name of the person who is the subject of the letter.

Correspondents include geneticists, maize geneticists, biochemists, chemists, students, and some publishers. The bulk of this series covers the 1960s to the 1990s, and the major topic of this series is maize genetics. Much of the correspondence consists of detailed explanations of McClintock's and others' experimental findings. In some cases, McClintock sent seed packets to a correspondent and kept copies of the packets labeled with the seed type. These packets were photocopied, and the photocopies have been placed in the appropriate correspondent's folder. There is a large amount of correspondence with the Rockefeller Foundation regarding the consulting work she did with them for their Agricultural Science Program in South America. Much of this work involved Takeo A. Kato Yamakake and Almiro Blumenschein; there is also a large amount of correspondence with both of them.

Correspondents in Series I include:

  1. Beadle, George W.
  2. Blumenschein, Almiro
  3. Brink, R. Alexander
  4. Brown, William L.
  5. Burnham, Charles R.
  6. Green, Melvin M.
  7. Kato Yamakake, Takeo Angel
  8. Lederberg, Joshua
  9. Nelson, Oliver E., Jr.
  10. Peterson, Peter A.
  11. Rhoades, Marcus M.
  12. Shapiro, James A.
  13. Sharp, Lester W.
1938-1989 1.0 linear feet

Programs, brochures, award certificates, newspaper and magazine clippings, reports, meeting minutes, various versions of McClintock's curriculum vitae, and copies of the "Index to Plant Chromosome Numbers" for 1959-1965. The folders are arranged alphabetically by title and include such subjects as the National Medal of Science and the Wolf Foundation Prize. The material about the Nobel Prize includes commemorative Nobel stamps with McClintock's image that were issued in Sweden.

1944-1989 5 linear feet

McClintock's typewritten and handwritten outlines, preparatory notes, research (including figures and tables), and drafts for articles, books, and lectures. The majority of this series is comprised of lectures, including the notes for the speech that McClintock gave when accepting the Nobel Prize. For each work, the notes and drafts are filed together. This series is arranged alphabetically by title, and cross-references are given for photographs, which appear in this series. The earliest materials in this series are notes on the Maize Genetics Coöperation Newsletter 18 in 1944. There are figures, tables, maps, and drafts for Chromosome Constitution of Races of Maize, a book co-authored with Almiro Blumenschein and Takeo A. Kato Yamakake. Also in this series are the page proofs for The Discovery and Characterization of Transposable Elements, a book of McClintock's collected works.

1927-1991 4.5 linear feet

Articles, notes, reports, and papers written by colleagues and students of McClintock. This series is arranged alphabetically by author and then by title. This series attests to McClintock's practice of keeping up-to-date with the work of others in her field. Many authors are represented by four or more manuscripts, including Bruce Alberts, Guenter Albrecht-Buehler, Almiro Blumenschein, R. Alexander Brink, Benjamin Burr, Paul S. Chomet, Nina Fedoroff, Takeo A. Kato Yamakake, Frederick Meins, Jr., Oliver E. Nelson, Jr., Kenneth Paigen, Drew Schwartz, James A. Shapiro, David F. Weber, and Susan R. Wessler. Cross-references are given for photographs, which appear in this series. Also in this series are notes that McClintock took about works by others; her notes appear with the work or with a copy of the title page if it is a reprint.

1930s-1990s 55 linear feet

Loose notes, notebooks, card files, and numerous photographs of maize. Because this series documents specific experiments with maize in great technical detail, the folders have been left in the original order in which they were boxed from McClintock's laboratory file cabinets at Cold Spring Harbor. The boxes have been labeled with the cabinet number and drawer number; for a map showing the location of these file cabinets in McClintock's laboratory, see the legal file. Most of the notes remain in folders labeled by McClintock; folders which were extremely acidic were replaced with acid-free folders, and McClintock's labels were copied onto the new folders. Loose notes remain in the boxes as found but were placed in unlabeled acid-free folders. All metal fasteners were removed and replaced with plastic clips when necessary. The notebooks are interspersed with the loose notes in the order in which McClintock arranged them. The card files (27.75 linear feet located at the end of Series V) are mainly culture cards for maize samples, which McClintock studied at Cold Spring Harbor. Many of the prints and slides are probably photographs of these same maize samples. The photographs were not removed to Series VI but left in context in Series V since many are interspersed with research notes.

1928-1991 1.5 linear feet

Includes prints and negatives. Some of the prints are illustrations from articles about maize genetics, many from articles in Series IV, and some from McClintock's book, Chromosome Constitution of Races of Maize. Besides the folders filed under McClintock's name, there are other folders, which contain prints of her. These are filed as: "Blumenschein, Almiro; Kato Yamakake, Takeo Angel; and Barbara McClintock"; "Dunn, L.C. and Barbara McClintock"; "Hershey, Al and Barbara McClintock"; "Albert Lasker Clinical Medical Research Award"; "Marine Biological Laboratory"; "National Medal of Science"; "Nobel Prize #1"; "Possible Short-Term Evolutionary Consequences of Biotechnology"; "Rosenstiel Award"; "Stadler Symposium"; and "Yale University".

Series III. Works by McClintock
1944-1989 5 linear feet

McClintock's typewritten and handwritten outlines, preparatory notes, research (including figures and tables), and drafts for articles, books, and lectures. The majority of this series is comprised of lectures, including the notes for the speech that McClintock gave when accepting the Nobel Prize. For each work, the notes and drafts are filed together. This series is arranged alphabetically by title, and cross-references are given for photographs, which appear in this series. The earliest materials in this series are notes on the Maize Genetics Coöperation Newsletter 18 in 1944. There are figures, tables, maps, and drafts for Chromosome Constitution of Races of Maize, a book co-authored with Almiro Blumenschein and Takeo A. Kato Yamakake. Also in this series are the page proofs for The Discovery and Characterization of Transposable Elements, a book of McClintock's collected works.

Series IV. Works by others
1927-1991 4.5 linear feet

Articles, notes, reports, and papers written by colleagues and students of McClintock. This series is arranged alphabetically by author and then by title. This series attests to McClintock's practice of keeping up-to-date with the work of others in her field. Many authors are represented by four or more manuscripts, including Bruce Alberts, Guenter Albrecht-Buehler, Almiro Blumenschein, R. Alexander Brink, Benjamin Burr, Paul S. Chomet, Nina Fedoroff, Takeo A. Kato Yamakake, Frederick Meins, Jr., Oliver E. Nelson, Jr., Kenneth Paigen, Drew Schwartz, James A. Shapiro, David F. Weber, and Susan R. Wessler. Cross-references are given for photographs, which appear in this series. Also in this series are notes that McClintock took about works by others; her notes appear with the work or with a copy of the title page if it is a reprint.
