Scope and Contents
The addition comprises forty-seven boxes of the administrative files of David Mintzer, Vice President for Research and Dean of Science. The bulk of the records date from 1972 to 1983.
The records include correspondence, memoranda, reports, grant applications and progress reports, and budgetary materials relating to the operation of the office. The records reflect the Vice President's role as coordinator of interdisciplinary research. Research activities at the University's centers and programs such as the Center for Catalysis and Surface Science, the Program of African Studies, the Center for Health Services and Policy Research, the Materials Research Center, the caw Medical Center, the Center for Urban Affairs and Policy Research, and many others are documented. Research activities in the University schools and departments such as the Technological Institute, the Chemistry Department, the Medical School, the Mathematics Department, and others are similarly documented.
The records also document the Vice President's extra-university activities such as his involvement in the Applied Research Laboratory at Pennsylvania State University, the Argon Universities Association, and the Association of American Universities.
A small portion of records document the Vice President's participation in University committees. The Vice President also kept materials relating to committees that dealt directly with research activities at Northwestern University.
Materials relating to the University centers, programs, schools, and departments are arranged with the general files placed first and the more specific materials (ie: budget, correspondence) following in alphabetical order. Otherwise, the files are arranged alphabetically by folder title. Within folders the arrangement is chronological by year.
