Earl W. Sutherland, Jr., M.D. (1915-1974) was a pioneering American pharmacologist and physiologist who isolated cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cyclic AMP) in 1956. In 1973, Dr. Sutherland was appointed Distinguished Professor of Biochemistry at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. He brought his research notebooks, which keep track of the details of his Nobel prize winning research between 1946 and 1971, to Miami with him. Following his death, all his research notebooks were donated to the Archives of the Louis Calder Memorial Library.

The Library is pleased to make the first 79 Earl W. Sutherland, Jr. Research Notebooks accessible to the health professional community, students, and the public at large, together with a brief biographical account, a complete bibliography of his publications, and his Nobel lecture.
