SERIES LIST

SERIES I. BIOGRAPHICAL MATERIAL
Box 1 and 34

SERIES II. PERSONAL FILES
Boxes 1-2
The files in this series relate to Fincher's personal and professional life. Of significance are his family letters as well as correspondence with friends and veterinary colleagues such as William Hagan, Cassius Way, A. Gordon Danks and others. The Danks correspondence, in particular, is filled with news from Cornell and provides an intimate glimpse into the lives of its alumni and emeriti.

SERIES III. OVERSEAS WORK
Box 2 and 33
Fincher did veterinary work in Greece, Italy, Nigeria and South America. More information about his work overseas can be found in his speeches and articles - see Series VI. Writings and Speeches.

SERIES IV. NEW YORK STATE MASTITIS CONTROL PROGRAM
Box 33
These annual reports were found in Fincher' personal files; Please see Series VIII. Cornell Office Files for more on the New York State Mastitis Control Program.

SERIES V. FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION FILES
Box 33
These files consist mostly of drug summaries Fincher wrote from 1967-1971 while he was a consultant for the Bureau of Veterinary Medicine at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

SERIES VI. WRITINGS AND SPEECHES
Box 33

SERIES VII. VETERINARY EPHEMERA
Box 32
This series consists of catalogs, advertisements, and miscellany collected by Fincher throughout his career. In addition, there is scrapbook of newspaper clippings from 1944-1950. According to a note attached to the book, it was probably compiled by a secretary in the Dean's Office when Fincher was acting Dean. The clippings relate primarily to happenings in the Veterinary College, but some relate to general University news, current events, or medical advances. There is also a list of reprints Fincher kept. These reprints have either been discarded or rehoused in the Veterinary Historical Reprint Collection.

SERIES VIII. CORNELL OFFICE FILES
The files in this series were organized by the creator in a number of alphabetical runs. The files were "broken" on a regular basis. Non-current materials were removed to storage. The archivist has assigned each run a rough date span. However, the date spans are only meant as a guide. Material from years outside of the span may be included. The spans were defined by the archivist, not the creator. The spans should be understood simply as an indicator of when files were pulled to be put in inactive storage.
At the beginning of the series is a run of files created by S.D. Johnson. This is most likely Seth Darwin Johnson, and he presumably worked with Fincher in the Department of Medicine and Obstetrics.
