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.
  • Dibner Fellowship Program (scroll down link for description) - offers long- and short-term fellowships which are designed to further study in the Burndy Library and the other history of science and technology resources at The Huntington.
  • The Getty Research Institute - photographic collection of post-1850 period.
  • The Huntington Library - is an independent research center with holdings in British and American history, literature, art history, and the history of science and medicine. The recent acquisition of the Burndy Library makes this a premier center for research in the history of science.
