The Lee Foundation for Nutritional Research

(Click here to view a list of all the Lee Foundation articles housed in the SRP Historical Archives along with their summaries.)

In 1941 Dr. Royal Lee created the Lee Foundation for Nutritional Research, a nonprofit distributorship of nutrition research and commentary that would become the largest clearinghouse of such information in the world. (See the foundation’s original mission statement.) As part of the SRP Historical Archives, we include over 200 books and articles from the original Lee Foundation collection, each identified by an image of the foundation’s famous entrance—shown at right along with the disclaimer that accompanied each publication. (Articles in the Archives not marked with this icon originate from other publishing sources.) In addition the summary of many of the Lee Foundation articles includes their original “reprint” number as well as the year they were printed.
