Note to Researcher: The majority of records in this Series pre-date Menges's tenure at the University of Missouri.
Series 2. - C:17/9/2 (A13-107; A15-13)
This Series contains faculty papers of Donald Covey Blenden, (1971-1987, 2004). The papers pertain to Blenden's research on early diagnoses of rabies and viral encephalitides. These records include correspondence, grant applications, and a "chronological summary" of Blenden's research and reports regarding "Early Biopsy Diagnosis of Rabies." The materials in the chronology date from 1971 to 1983 and consist of offprints, abstracts, and short annotations of each item by Blenden. The chronology was presented by Blenden to Haworth F. Hoch with the intent that it would be shared with the Board of the American Kennel Club. The Series also contains a Rabies Service Laboratory procedure manual, (ca. 1987) and a newspaper obituary for Blenden, who died in 2004.
