N1 - Funding Information: Warren McCulloch had told Frederic A. Gibbs of Harvard University about the great laboratories and research opportunities he had at UI. At the suggestion of Percival Bailey, Gibbs accepted an appointment in 1944, arriving at the NPI with his wife and professional colleague Erna. The Secretary to the Board of Trustees of UI on May 14, 1944, wrote, “The introduction of electrophysiological techniques in the field of study of normal and abnormal function of the brain is one of the newer and more promising approaches to research and clinical problems in this area.” He added that the Gibbses were “outstanding workers in clinical and experimental encephalopathy and the University of Illinois is extremely fortunate in having the opportunity of securing their services.” Further comments from the Board were that neither Dr. nor Mrs. Gibbs was interested in coming without the other and an exception to policy was made not to appoint individuals related to each other, especially because World War II was responsible in part for a shortage of outstanding research personnel. Dr. Gibbs came as an Associate Professor of Psychiatry with a salary of $4,500 per year and his wife as a Research Associate at $2,400. Dr. Gibbs then began his highly productive career as “Father of Clinical EEG” culminating in his five atlases of electroencephalography, still used throughout the world. With outstanding investigators like H. Himwich, the Gibbses described the blood flow patterns during seizures, pioneering the study of cerebral blood flow in man, receiving a grant of $500 from Harvard University in 1946 to support this research.
