Biographical/Historical Information

Harold Clifford Morris was born in Louisville, Kentucky, on June 22, 1921, son of Mr. and Mrs. James Leroy Morris of that city. Morris graduated cum laude from the Louisville Male High School in June, 1939, after being commissioned a second lieutenant in the Junior R.O.T.C. He was a student at the Louisville College of Pharmacy from September, 1939, to June 1943, at which time he received the bachelor of science degree. Morris was elected president of his senior class. During each of his first three years he was awarded a medal for the highest general average in that class. In 1942 he was given the Simon N. Jones scholarship.

Morris entered the Graduate School at Northwestern in the summer of 1943 to work for his master of science in pharmacology. Dr. Carl Dragstedt was Morris' major professor, and the master's thesis was entitled “Studies in Anaphylaxis and Related Reactions.” The degree was granted in June, 1946. Morris had also entered the Medical School in 1943 and received the doctor of medicine in June, 1950. Morris took his internship (1949-1950) at the Kentucky Baptist Hospital in Louisville and became a member of the attending staff in 1952. His residency in medicine (1950-1951) was at the Louisville General Hospital. In 1952 he became a clinical instructor in medicine at the Louisville College of Medicine. Morris was certified in medicine in 1956 and recertified in 1974. A fellow of the American College of Physicians, Morris practiced internal medicine in Louisville.

Morris married the former Carol Elizabeth Luellen. Morris died on May 29, 1995.

Scope and Content

The Harold Clifford Morris Papers are arranged in three categories: biographical, lecture and laboratory notes, and writings and notes.

The biographical material consists of photocopies of his application and other records in the Northwestern University Graduate School, of a curriculum vitae compiled in 1943, and several other items.

The lecture and laboratory notes are mostly from Morris' work in the graduate and medical schools (1943-1947). Two folders of material are from his courses at the Louisville College of Pharmacy (1941).

The writings and notes category contains two folders: one with a mimeographed presentation by Morris and a colleague on current concepts of edema (Dec. 1951); the other has reading notes on cardiac catheterization.
