Catalog type History
Provenance From "Dr. William L. Jellison, Famed Parasitologist, Retires from RML," NIH Record, August 14, 1962, p. 4: "In addition to his studies at RML, where his special interests included taxonomy of disease-bearing insects and ecology of tularemia, plague, and spotted fever, Dr. Jellison is internationally recognized for his work abroad. He served during World War II in the China-Burma-India theater, including a mission with the American Typhus Commission....One of Dr. Jellison's interests in Hamilton has been the collection of scientific reports which will eventually become a part of the RML library."
