High-Energy Physics Administrators. Oral history interviews, 1990-1991.

Interviews were conducted with ten administrators of high-energy physics research. Alexander Abashian, a former Program Officer in elementary-particle physics at the National Science Foundation (NSF), on the NSF and the agency's approval of experiments, with special attention to the CLEO experiment at the Cornell Electron Storage Ring (CESR). David Berley, Program Director for elementary particle physics (two interviews) about the NSF-funding of high-energy physics. Bernard Hildebrand, Program Officer for particle physics at the Department of Energy (DOE) former overseer of university groups receiving DOE funding, about DOE-funding of high-energy physics. Ken Kikuchi, Deputy Director, Japan's National Laboratory for High-Energy Physics (KEK), and Tesuji Nishikawa, founding Director of KEK on the founding and administration of KEK and Nishikawa's experience working with John P. Blewett and others at Brookhaven National Laboratory on accelerator design. Boyce McDaniel, Director of the Newman Laboratory of Nuclear Science at the time of the CLEO experiment's approval at CESR, on administrative and scientific aspects of that experiment. Homer Neal, University of Michigan, on fundraising for university high-energy physics groups, changes in university-based facilities for high-energy physics experiments, ways universities shape the U.S. high-energy physics program, and the impact of racial discrimination on his educational and professional career. Harold Ticho, University of California at San Diego Vice-Chancellor, on the high-energy physics research of university groups, specifically their relationships to DOE and to accelerator laboratories. Maury Tigner, Cornell University, formerly the Director of Operations for Newman Laboratory and an accelerator physicist, on the scientific and technical aspects of the design and running of CESR (interview missing), William Wallenmeyer, officer of the Southeastern Universities Research Association, on his career as an administrator of high-energy physics.

Outside of museum holdings, no comprehensive survey and inventory of campus artwork had been attempted since 1937. With support from the Michigan Commission on Art in Public Places, 1,076 items were inventoried during 1988-1990. Additional inventory work was undertaken in 1997-1998 for risk management purposed, but generated little new information.

In the 1980s the U. S. Department of Energy led an effort to establish nuclear waste disposal sites in several states, one of which was Texas. The site selected was in Deaf Smith County. The proposal for Deaf Smith County fell through because of protests from the local community. Opposition was due in part to concerns for the Ogallala aquifer and the agricultural production. Leading the protests were the organizations of Serious Texans Against Nuclear Dumping, headquartered in Tulia, Texas, and ...
