Richard Lingenfelter Papers, 1980 - 1999

Papers of Richard E. Lingenfelter, research astrophysicist and UCSD physics lecturer. The collection documents his years at UCSD (1979-1999) as a member of the Center for Astrophysics and Space Sciences. Lingenfelter worked in the areas of solar high energy emissions, gamma-ray bursts and supernovas (especially SN 1987a). He also served on such committees as NASA's Gamma-ray Program Working Group and the National Research Council's Astronomy Assessment Panel. The collection is rich in Lingenfelter's research and writings, including research materials, notes, correspondence, drafts, and final versions of many of his papers. Research proposals developed by Lingenfelter document experiments leading to his theoretical work in gamma-rays, and subject files record his areas of research interest. Correspondence documents his work refereeing for journals and consulting for scientific organizations. The conferences series chronicles Lingenfelter's participation in the planning of the 19th Annual International Cosmic Ray Conference in 1985. The collection is organized in nine series: 1) BIOGRAPHICAL MATERIALS, 2) WRITINGS, 3) PROPOSALS, 4) COMMITTEES, 5) RESEARCH PROJECTS, 6) REFEREE REPORTS AND CONSULTING, 7) CONFERENCES, 8) SUBJECT FILES, and 9) ORIGINALS OF PRESERVATION PHOTOCOPIES.
