Eugene Starr Papers, 1911-1988

Content Description

The Starr papers - containing nearly 10,000 items and occupying 38 cubic feet of space - are comprised chiefly of personal correspondence and scientific reports, with a focus on Starr's activities in the fields of nuclear fission and high-voltage transmission. Several research programs and publications headed by Starr are detailed within the collection, as are materials related to his work as a classroom instructor and consultant to organizations ranging from the United Nations to the Atomic Energy Commission. The materials in the Starr collection exemplify the practical application of scientific principals in relation to electricity, and help illustrate the peaceful use of nuclear power in the 20th century.
