Using Rainbow Trout and Zebrafish as models, the research in these records focus upon dietary cancer prevention agents and in particular, the mechanisms whereby chlorophylls (specifically chlorophyliin) and indoles inhibit the carcinogens Aflatoxin B1 and Dibenzo(a,1,)pyrene (DBP). Originally housed in three-ring binder notebooks, the data has been removed from the binders, placed into file folders, and arranged roughly in chronological order by year. Most of these projects are designated by an alpha-numeric identification system. An inventory listing these numbers and the corresponding titles of the research projects has been prepared for this transfer. Numbering about 600 images in all (500 prints and 100 negatives), the photographs mostly depict research specimens examined by Hendricks and other OSU researchers. There are also images of an unidentified researcher (probably OSU researcher Russell O. Sinnhuber) and fish experiments at the Food Toxicology and Nutrition Laboratory. Published in a number of scientific journals, the article reprints reflect the research illustrated in these records by Hendricks as well as OSU colleague George Bailey.

Earning undergraduate and doctoral degrees in fishery biology, Jerry Hendricks came to OSU in 1975 to work as a research associate in the Department of Food Science. Trained as a histopathologist, Hendricks worked collaboratively at OSU with Biochemist George Bailey in studies using rainbow trout as a model to research cancer. In particular, Hendricks focused upon the identification of natural inhibitors to carcinogenesis. For his research, Hendricks won the Prince Hitachi Prize for Comparative Oncology in 2001.
