Ph.D. Courses and Dissertation Research

The Ph.D. Courses and Dissertation Research subseries includes laboratory notebooks and course work from his time at Indiana University, where he studied under Hermann J. Muller and Salvador E. Luria. While most of the research was conducted in Bloomington, additional work was done at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (summer 1948 and spring 1949), Memorial Hospital in New York City (summer 1948), as well as the California Institute of Technology (summer 1949). The findings from all four locations culminated in Watson's June 15, 1950 doctoral dissertation, The Biological Properties of X-ray Inactivated Bacteriophage.
