Biographical/Historical Information

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP), was established formally at Northwestern University on September 1, 1971, to encourage and administer external financial support for research projects and educational programs. From its inception, ORSP has been charged with the responsibility of aiding the university and individual faculty members in obtaining funding from both public agencies and private foundations. As part of its duties, ORSP has assisted in the preparation and presentation of research and grant proposals.

Administratively, ORSP has functioned under the Vice President for Research and Dean of Science. The first director of the Office was Charles H. Gold, appointed to the position in December, 1971. Gold remained director until leaving Northwestern on December 1, 1978. William J. Gealy succeeded Gold as director on July 1, 1980.

Scope and Content

This series, filling nineteen boxes, comprises the administrative records of the director of the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs. The series span the period 1959-1980 but bulks between the years from 1975 through 1979. The records are divided into two subseries: more than one box of Charles H. Gold's general correspondence and almost eighteen boxes of subject files. The general correspondence is mainly routine and administrative in nature. The subject files typically concern research proposals and university programs and include correspondence between ORSP and university officers and faculty and representatives of funding agencies. Also included are internal university memoranda and copies of research and grant proposals as well as draft proposals. Many materials within the series antedate establishment of ORSP but also concern sponsored research and research administration at Northwestern.
