It was the policy of SIO Contracts and Grants Office to routinely discard non-current grant and proposal files until 1982, when Director William A. Nierenberg directed the office to retain one copy of every proposal submitted by SIO and transfer non-current records to the archives. The accession includes proposals, reports, grant reports and other material documenting sponsored research at SIO from 1952 to 1992, although the bulk of the accession consists of proposals dated 1976 to 1982.
