Papers of John Burnard West (b. 1928), professor of physiology, researcher in high-altitude medicine and adaptation, author, and leader of the 1981 American Medical Research Expedition to Mount Everest (AMREE). West participated in Sir Edmund Hillary's 1960-1961 Himalayan Scientific and Mountaineering Expedition (Silver Hut). West has been an active faculty member in the Division of Physiology at the University of California, San Diego, School of Medicine since 1969. The papers document the AMREE expedition, including correspondence, planning materials, photographs, diaries and audio recordings, as well as West's physiology research projects for the NASA Spacelab Life Sciences program. The bulk of the papers date from the early 1960s to the early 2000s and include correspondence, drafts of books and articles, research files, talks and lectures, teaching and administrative materials, and audio recordings.

John Burnard West was born in Adelaide, Australia in 1928. He received a MBBS medical degree in 1951 and an M.D. in 1958, both from the University of Adelaide. After a year of residency, he moved to London, where he earned his Ph.D. from London University in 1960 and began postdoctoral work at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School. West's early research used the oxygen-15 isotope to study the topographical inequality of blood flow caused by gravity and gravity's effect on regional differences of ventilation, gas exchange, and alveolar size.

In 1960, West, who had no previous mountain climbing experience, applied and was accepted to Sir Edmund Hillary's Himalayan Scientific and Mountaineering Expedition of 1960-1961. Referred to as the Silver Hut expedition, the physiologists performed a variety of experiments at high altitudes just south of Mt. Everest and on Mt. Makalu. This experience ignited West's interest in high-altitude medicine and physiology. In 1981, West led the American Medical Research Expedition to Everest (AMREE), during which five climbers reached the summit and the first physiological measurements of the summit were made. West continues to study human adaptation to extreme oxygen deprivation at high altitudes.

After returning from the Silver Hut expedition, West spent a year as a postdoctoral fellow and assistant professor at the University of New York-Buffalo. West returned to London and the Royal Postgraduate Medical School in 1962, where he was director of the Medical Research Council Respiratory Group for five years. In 1967-1968, West took a period of sabbatical leave to further study the effects of gravity on the lung at the NASA Ames Research Center. While at NASA, West submitted a proposal to study pulmonary function in astronauts. The study has sent experiments to Spacelabs in orbit and to the International Space Station.

West came to the University of California, San Diego, School of Medicine in 1969 as professor of medicine and physiology. His laboratory experiments have covered a wide range of subjects including studies of ventilation-perfusion inequality in the lung, pulmonary circulation, and the regulation of the blood-gas barrier in the lung. In addition to his laboratory work, West was in charge of the physiology course for first-year medical students for over 30 years and taught several courses on the history of medicine and high-altitude physiology. He is currently professor emeritus at UC San Diego.

West has received many honors, including president of the American Physiological Society, foreign member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and founding fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering. West holds honorary doctorates from the University of Barcelona and the University of Adelaide, and is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the Royal College of Physicians, and the Royal Australasian College of Physicians. He is a recipient of the Trudeau medal from the American Thoracic Society, the Orr Reynolds Prize from the American Physiological Society, and the Hickman medal from the Royal Society of Medicine.

The papers of respiratory physiologist John Burnard West document his laboratory research in the field of high-altitude physiology, his involvement in several research expeditions to Mt. Everest, his work as an investigator with the NASA Spacelab program, his interest in the history of physiology, and his experience as a professor and administrator at the University of California, San Diego. The collection contains correspondence, drafts of books and articles, research files, talks and lectures, teaching and administrative materials, and sound recordings.
