Abstract The Department of Biochemistry and Nutrition, part of the University's School of Medicine, provided coursework in biological chemistry. Established as the Department of Biochemistry in 1935, it was renamed Department of Biochemistry and Nutrition in 1943; the fuller name, however, was not used until 1973. In 1991, the Department of Biochemistry and Nutrition was replaced by a new Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics in the School of Medicine. Records include annual reports, minutes of staff meetings, staff memoranda, self-studies, long-range plans, committee correspondence, files pertaining to federal training grants, along with material about courses and curriculum.
