Albert D. Lasker papers by Albert Davis Lasker( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The collection spans Albert D. Lasker's entire life and his family up to the 21st century. The majority of the collection is made up of interviews and research conducted by Boyden Sparkes, who Albert D. Lasker had hired to ghost-write his autobiography in 1938 (not for publication). This includes interviews with Lasker himself, family members, colleagues, and fellow businessmen, and covers Lasker's early life and his career in both advertising, art collecting, and philanthropy. There is also some material about Lasker's involvement in the defense of Leo Frank, a Jewish American factory superintendent, in Georgia, who was convicted of the murder of a 13-year-old girl; Frank was ultimately taken from prison and lynched in August 1915. There is also material about Lasker's family including: his first wife Flora, their three children (and their families), his brief marriage to Doris Kenyon, and his third wife Mary Woodard Lasker. There is also some material about his father Morris Lasker and his life in Galveston, Texas. There is a small amount of material about Edward Lasker's career with horse racing and about his second wife American actress Jane Greer

The Mary Lasker papers by Mary Lasker( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In the decades after World War II, Mary Lasker (1900-1994) acted as a catalyst for the growth of the world's largest and most successful biomedical research enterprise, with the National Institutes of Health as its centerpiece. She was a well-connected fundraiser and astute lobbyist who through charm and skillful use of the media persuaded congressmen and presidents to provide greatly increased funds for biomedical research. Driven by an unshakeable belief that the nation's wealth could be mobilized to unravel the mysteries of disease and find new cures, she developed a compelling political rationale for federal sponsorship of medical research, built a powerful lobby that won large appropriations for NIH, and pushed the agency into new scientific directions, at times in opposition to the scientific establishment. The Columbia University Libraries Rare Book & Manuscript Library is the repository for the Mary Lasker Papers, which range from 1940 to 1993. The collection contains correspondence, reports, bulletins, clippings, photographs, awards, and printed material. As part of its Profiles in Science project, the National Library of Medicine has collaborated with the Columbia University Libraries Rare Book & Manuscript Library to digitize and make available over the World Wide Web a selection of the Mary Lasker Papers for use by educators and researchers. This site provides access to the portions of the Mary Lasker Papers of the Columbia University Libraries Rare Book & Manuscript Library that have been selected for digitization. Individuals interested in conducting research in the Mary Lasker Papers are invited to contact the Columbia University Libraries Rare Book & Manuscript Library. This online Exhibit is designed to introduce you to the various phases of Lasker's career and professional life. It is divided into sections that focus on Lasker's life and major contributions to fostering science and health

Notable New Yorkers( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Notable New Yorkers Web site offers audio recordings and transcripts of interviews with ten influential New Yorkers, drawn from the collections of the Oral History Research Office of the Columbia University Libraries. These interviews, conducted by the Office between 1955 and 2001, open an imaginative portal into twentieth-century New York City and the ways in which it has deeply affected the culture and history of the United States and the world beyond. With three background essays and a briefer methodological introduction for each oral history, this site also provides a revealing look at the art of the biographical interview--a methodology developed by the Office over its four and a half decades of existence--in which individuals who have shaped history reflect upon their lives and accomplishments. The site also includes biographical sketches and photographs of the interview subjects, as well as indexes and tables of contents to the material. The texts of the transcriptions are fully searchable
