Current List Of Barbara McClintock’s Publications
--Kass, LB

Introduction:

In 1987, Moore edited and reprinted a collection of Barbara McClintock's papers for the Great Books in Experimental Biology Series. McClintock's publications relevant to the discovery and characterization of transposable elements are reprinted in that work. The volume also includes a list of McClintock's published papers under the heading "Numbered List of Publications" (Moore 1987). In researching McClintock’s work for a biography that I am writing in collaboration with William B. Provine, I examined the journals, symposia, etc., where all of McClintock's papers appear. In the course of my research I found 14 additional contributions. I subsequently compiled a chronological list of all known contributions published by McClintock, which I now wish to share with Maize Cooperators.

My list updates and amends Moore’s (1987) published list and brings the total number of publications to 88. I annotated citations to include, when available, dates when the papers were received, and the month they appeared in print. In some cases the publication date and inclusive pages were revised to reflect accurately these citations. This may be important for scholars who do not have direct access to the publications and might request them on interlibrary-loan. I would be pleased to hear from anyone who may know of any additional references that should be included in this list.

I gratefully acknowledge Dr. Edward Coe for his support with this project. I would be thankful to anyone who can provide missing dates or additional relevant corrections. I may be contacted at the L. H. Bailey Hortorium, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853 or by email at lbk7@cornell.edu.

ANNOTATED CHRONOLOGICAL LIST OF THE PUBLICATIONS OF BARBARA MCCLINTOCK

(Prepared by Lee B. Kass)

Note: This list uses dates of publication as referenced by McClintock; i.e., the 1951 Cold Spring Harbor Symposia on Quantitative Biology is cited here as 1951, although the copyright date for the symposium is 1952. Additional pertinent information is enclosed in brackets.

*Appears in Moore's (1987) "Numbered list of publications," pgs. xiii-xv. I add month of publication and submission dates in brackets. I list publications chronologically and add letters following dates for more than one publication in the same year. I add subheadings following titles for Carnegie Institution of Washington Year Book reports, and complete titles for other publications. Inclusive years for Carnegie Year Book reports are in brackets.

**Appears in Moore (1987) and edited for accuracy; i.e., titles, page numbers, or dates corrected.
