William Q. Wick Papers, 1966-1989

Scope and Content Note

These papers document the career and research endeavors of William Q. Wick, Sea Grant College Program Director from 1973 to 1990.

The speeches include conference papers, opening remarks and addresses, congressional testimony, and notes. The focus of the testimony is the re-authorization of Sea Grant funding and support of the National Aquaculture Organic Act. Series II consists of articles and essays (both in reprint and final draft form) submitted to journals and magazines. Among the topics addressed inthese articles include: estuaries, marine extension education, coastal zone management, and the Pacific Sea Grant Advisory Program.

The correspondence primarily pertains to Wick's appointment as Director of the Sea Grant program, attendance of conferences and meetings, receipt of awards, and communication with long-time colleagues. Series IV contains newspaper clippings from the Tillamook Headlight-Herald, Statesman- Journal, and Ocean Industry Magazine pertaining to Wick's appointment as Sea Grant Director, receipt of awards, and appearance at various meetings and workshops. The two certificates were awarded to Wick by the Corvallis Kiwanis Club and the Salem Lions Club for his appearance as a guest speaker. The photographs consist of two prints of a portrait photograph of Wick.

An addition to the Wick Papers (Accession 2011:060) is made up of eight photographs taken by Wick that document oyster beds and harvesting operations at an unidentified location, presumably on the Oregon coast. The images were taken to be featured in the Sea Grant Extension Marine Advisory Program Publication: "Oyster Farming: Culturing, Harvesting and Processing a Product of the Pacific Coast Area."
