Scope and content

This series of personal materials is arranged by subject. These include biographical information and curriculum vitae, 1964-1996 (Container 8, Files 362-366); genealogical information, n.d.-1982 (Container 8, Files 368-369); poems written by his father, Frank Jasper, n.d. (Container 8, File 367), a yearbook from Reed College, 1927 (Container 8, File 357); and university degrees, 1927-1983 (Container 8, Files 358-360, and Container 13, Items 14, 24, 28, 49, and 52). Of particular interest is Jasper’s Travel Diary from a 1958 trip to Russia, in which he records many personal reflections on the country and the researchers he meets (Container 8, File 373). Several travel diaries written by Margaret Jasper, spanning the years 1949-1978, also provide information about the family’s travels to international conferences and symposia (Container 8, Files 374-382). Also included are official documents, such as citizenship and army papers, passports, leases, property deeds, and wills 1940-1993 (Container 9, Files 384-393, 396, 408-409, 411). Medals, plaques, awards, and certificates of recognition for Jasper’s contributions to brain research are also included in this series; medals, 1961- 1998 (Container 16); plaques and awards, 1940-1996 (Container 11); and certificates, 1931-1998 (Container 13); documentation of awards, including correspondence and programs from award ceremonies, 1969-1996 (Container 4, Files 205-207; Container 5, Files 219, 228, 229, 237, 250, 253, 255-256, 268, and 279).

Personal correspondence is included in this series; correspondence with family members, especially his sister Clara, circa 1980s-1990s (Container 3, File 147); and personal correspondence with the Penfields, 1944-1946 (Container 4, File 181). It should be noted that much of the correspondence included in the research series also has a personal element to it, since Jasper had close and long-standing friendships with many of his colleagues. Of particular note is the correspondence with Alexandre and Andrée Monnier, which may be considered personal as well as professional, 1938-1993 (Container 3, Files 168-170).
