      All proposals must be accompanied by a budget listing travel and other

      nature of the applicant's research and scholarly interests). All materials

      The Historical Collections of Lister Hill Library comprise the Alabama
      Museum of the Health Sciences, the University Archives, and the Reynolds
      Historical Library. The Museum holds equipment, instruments, and objects
      that represent the history and development of the health sciences. Among
      its featured holdings are the Nott pathological specimens, nineteen wax
      anatomical models purchased by Dr. Josiah Nott (1804-1873) and originally
      brought to Mobile, Alabama in October of 1860. The scope of the collection
      includes, but is not limited to the fields of medicine, nursing,
      ophthalmology, dentistry, public health, and allied health. The Archives
      contain over 1,500 linear feet of processed materials relating to the
      medical school of the University of Alabama, the University of Alabama at
      Birmingham, the Alabama health science community, and other primary resource
      materials that include personal papers and an extensive collection of
      photographs. The Reynolds Library contains historical materials relating to
      medicine and its allied sciences. The core of this library comprises the
      5,000 titles collected by Dr. Lawrence Reynolds (1889-1961) and officially
      transferred to UAB in 1958. Included in his original library are some 30
      incunabula dating from the 14th century and other medical classics. In
      addition, the Reynolds Library contains an extensive and growing collection
      in Civil War medicine, significant holdings relating to the famous Ohio
      Valley physician Daniel Drake (1785-1852), complete transactions for the
      Southern Surgical Association dating from 1888, and many other valuable
      research materials. For further information on the collections, prospective
