Los Angeles Resources for History of Science, Medicine, and Technology
  • Caltech Einstein Papers Project - selects from among more than 40,000 documents contained in the personal collection of Albert Einstein (1879-1955), and an additional 30,000 Einstein and Einstein-related documents discovered by the editors since the 1980s, to eventually create a complete series of The Collected Papers, which will provide the first complete picture of a massive written legacy that ranges from Einstein's first work on the special and general theories of relativity and the origins of quantum theory, to expressions of his profound concern with civil liberties, education, Zionism, pacifism, and disarmament.
  • Caltech Institute Archives - serves as the collective memory of Caltech by preserving the papers, documents, artifacts and pictorial materials that tell the school's history, from 1891 to the present. Researchers will also find here a wealth of sources for the history of science and technology worldwide, stretching from the time of Copernicus to today.
  • Getty Research Institute - photographic collection of post-1850 period; rare books and early printed books.
  • Huntington Library - library and research center with rare book and manuscript holdings in British and American history, Los Angeles history, literature, art history, and the history of science, technology and medicine. With the acquisition of the Burndy Library and the Longo Collection in Reproductive Biology adding to extensive rare book holdings, the Huntington became a premier center for research in the history of science and medicine. The Dibner Fellowship Program at the Huntington offers long- and short-term fellowships designed to further study in the extensive history of science, technology, and medicine resources at the Huntington Library.
