  • Request
This is a chronological sequence of material 1959-1971, all in Kendrew's hand, consisting of his notes of papers, lectures, questions and discussions at meetings attended by him or by other members of the MRC Unit, talks and seminars given in the Unit by visitors or by staff members during its Open Days, and also of the papers given at the 1969 EMBO meeting at Konstanz on the scientific programme of the proposed European Molecular Biology Laboratory. The content, though primarily on protein structure, is thus not exclusively on myoglobin.

This item was a late addition to the collection and has been kept as an entity, though its contents are often an essential complement to Sections D (MRC Unit), F (EMBO), L (Lectures) and N (Visits and conferences). The work is sub-divided as follows:
