Born in Kansas in 1915, Earl Wilbur Sutherland, Jr. was a leading American pharmacologist and physiologist who was best known for his discoveries regarding the mechanisms of hormone action. For his work, Sutherland was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1971. Sutherland passed away in 1974 and, after his death, his research notebooks were donated to the Archives of the Louis Calder Memorial Library and the University of Miami. The Library decided to make 79 of Sutherland's research notebooks available to the public and they have presented them here on this site. Visitors to the site will find four sections: "Biography", "Bibliography", "Notebooks", and "Nobel Lecture". The "Biography" area offers a brief overview of Sutherland's life, and as one might imagine, the "Notebooks" area contains the complete contents of the aforementioned 79 research notebooks. Finally, visitors can read the complete text of his Nobel Lecture as well.
