This series contains notes and professional correspondence generated and received by Gerstel during his tenure at North Carolina State University. Additionally, there is a photocopy of a diary, written in German, belonging to Anna Flato, a Gerstel relative, dated 1868 - 1872. The series also includes a copy of a research paper entitled, "Attitudes, Values, and Tasks of Older Women", by Angela Roberta Stocker, newspaper clippings collected by Gerstel, and material related to stamp collecting.

This series consists of research publications, scientific papers, and journal articles collected by Dan U. Gerstel over a period of six decades 1930 - 1997. The material is arranged in chronological order. These papers provide a general historical overview of the evolution of genetic study, cytology, plant pathology, and crop science in the twentieth century, as well as information detailing research specific to tobacco, cotton, and corn. The series also contains a set of publications by North Carolina State University geneticist and O. Max Gardner Award winner Stanley George Stephens.

Scope and Content Note

This collection contains numerous scientific publications collected by Dan U.

Biographical Note

Cytogeneticist Dan U. Gerstel, Ph.D., served as a professor of crop science at North Carolina State University, 1950 - 1980. He specialized in the study of tobacco and cotton.

Son of Else and Dr. Alfred Gerstel, Dan Gerstel was born in Berlin, Germany, in 1915. His father served as the President of the Prussian Supreme Court, where he was known for his contributions to labor law. Gerstel's mother was among the first women in Germany to study for a doctorate. When Hitler came to power, Gerstel fled to Palestine where he worked on a kibbutz.

It was in Palestine that Gerstel met his wife, Eva. Dan Gerstel performed all the duties required of kibbutz residents and developed an interest in agriculture. In 1938 his bent for agriculture led him to study genetics at the University of California, Berkley, where he earned a Ph.D. In 1950 Gerstel joined the faculty of the North Carolina College of Agriculture and Engineering (later North Carolina State University). Over the course of his career he published nearly a hundred papers and received numerous acknowledgements for his teaching and research including the William Neal Reynolds Distinguished Professorship in Agronomy and Genetics.

Gerstel witnessed and participated in the evolution of the State of Israel as he returned numerous times to the Middle East, and worked in the genetics department of the Weizmann Institute of Science (Mekhon Vaitsman le-mada) in Rehovot, Israel. Dan and Eva Gerstel had two children, David and Naomi. Dan U. Gerstel died on June 8, 2003, at the age of 88.
