Kazanjian, Varaztad Hovhannes papers, 1900-1979, 1984. H MS c51

Description

The Varaztad H. Kazanjian Archive was donated by the Kazanjian Family to the National Archives of Plastic Surgery, Center for the History of Medicine, in the Francis A. Countway Library of Medicine. The archive, which consists of 204 record cartons and twenty-one card file drawers, spans the years 1905 to 1984. Dr. Kazanjian's patient records, which include photographs, diagrams, films, moulages, models, and instruments, as well as patient histories, constitute ninety per cent of the archive. The patient records are alphabetically arranged within the following four sub-sections: “World War I Patients,” “Osteo-Frontal Bone Case Histories,” “Special Patient Histories,” and “Patient Histories.” Access to all patient records is restricted. A subject or operation/diagnosis approach to the post World War I patient records is possible with the use of the card file drawers labeled, “Operations, 1922-1962,” and folders PS-24 to PS-39, labeled “Compilations of Patients by Diagnosis or Operation, 1920-1961.” A chronological approach to some of Dr. Kazanjian's patient records is possible by referring to the seven card file drawers labeled, “Patients, 1927-1941, Cases #2-2050,” as well as folders PS-9 to PS-21, labeled “Chronological Listing of Patients, 1945-1957.”
Also included in the archive are drafts of Dr. Kazanjian's articles and books as well as materials that relate to his professional and academic life. Dr. Kazanjian's correspondence includes a significant exchange of letters with Dr. John Marquis Converse. The reprints of Dr. Kazanjian's journal articles can be found in the Harvard Medical School Archives. A portion of Dr. Kazanjian's professional library is housed in the National Archives of Plastic Surgery.
