Organized into 16 series. The first 13 of the series were created by topic derived from the original folder titles. The topic related series include: Pathology Department Records; Duke Pathological Service (DPS) Records; Autopsy Records; Medico-Legal Case Records; Veterans Administration Records; Pathology Teaching Material; Duke University Committees; Organizations; Conferences; Manuscripts, Addresses, Speeches, Lectures; Hodgkin's Disease Brucella Research Materials; Correspondence; and Foreign Medical Education Sabbaticals. The last 3 series: Printed Materials, Photos, and Restricted were created because of storage, formatting, or legal considerations. There are numerous types of materials found in the collection including but not limited to documents, reports, photos, reprints and correspondence. Care was made to detail at an item level the types of materials and some of the topics found in each folder. This information is written on the folder tab for quick identification. Please note that whenever possible the terms used for groups of people and places in the records were used in the folder descriptions and may appear outdated.

The strength of the collection is found within the Pathology Department Records Series, 1923-1966; Duke Pathological Service (DPS) Records Series, 1924-1960; Veterans Administration Records Series, 1946-1960; Pathology Teaching Materials Series, 1930-1962; Duke University Committees Series, 1927-1969; Organizations Series, 1928-1973; and Foreign Medical Education Sabbaticals Series, 1948-1971. These series provide a historical overview of the inception and development of the Pathology Department and teaching program at Duke, the formation of Duke University, its School of Medicine, Duke Hospital and its affiliations with other North Carolina Hospitals. The development of the Veterans Administration Hospital network, its processes and procedures, and the relationship between Duke Hospital and the Durham VA Hospital are also evident. The Organizations series illustrates the power and interconnectivity of medical professional organizations throughout the South and nationally. For example, the MSNNC's committee on the Coroner System conceived of and lobbied for the legislation that created the Medical Examiner's System in the state. The Foreign Medical Education Sabbaticals series provides evidence and context for the midcentury influence of the United States of America over the development of medical teaching facilities in Asia and Europe and the decline of that influence. Some societal issues included in records are the tensions associated with establishing an institutional reputation, race and gender relations, Segregation, and procuring qualified staff and students during WWII.
