Much of the evidence of Solly Zuckerman's scientific research is to be found in Series SZ/PUB. This series contains other surviving records of his work on primate physiology and social life, and endocrinology, from files created at the Zoological Society of London, the Department of Human Anatomy, Oxford University, and the Department of Anatomy, Birmingham University. The present arrangement dates from the period when the files were at Birmingham. There is also much correspondence relating to Zuckerman's scientific work, some of which is complementary to this series, in Series SZ/GEN.
