Scope and content: Records documenting the activities of Milton H. Brown as a professor in the Department of Hygiene and Preventive Medicine and head (1956-1967) of the Department of Public Health.  There are extensive files on administrative matters and courses; on courses given at the Canadian Civil Defence College; on research on tuberculosis, other communicable diseases, and the development of vaccines; and on committees, especially those that Brown chaired, such as the Panel on Infection and Immunity of the Defence Research Board and the Committee on Accident Prevention of the Canadian Public Health Association. Some of Dr. Brown's files incorporate material produced by Donald Fraser, and there are also some of the latter's files.
These files are important for an understanding of the work carried out by the Department of Hygiene and Preventive Medicine and the Department of Public Health, the records for neither of which are in the University Archives [1997].  They should also be compared with the Fraser Family records (B1995-0044) which contain original research carried out by Donald and Frieda Fraser in the Department of Hygiene and Preventive Medicine.
