Identifier: MS-0151
Scope and Contents Elsasser's papers consist of correspondence, writings and some personal material. They span the period 1927-1989 although the manuscript material does not begin until 1955. Although best known for his geophysical work, Elsasser believed his controversial ideas in theoretical biology were what historians would want to study. The papers, therefore, are most complete in theoretical biology.The papers include a small amount of correspondence relating to geophysics, but the largest...
