Index to the Papers of Grote Reber: Miscellaneous Research Corporation Materials, 1947-1987

Miscellaneous Research Corporation material sub-unit: one folder containing photocopies of material related to Reberís long relationship with the Research Corporation; these photocopies were made by K.I. Kellermann during a visit to the Research Corporation archives on 19 February 2004. This sub-series material covers the period 1947-1987 and includes copies of correspondence between Reber and the Research Corporation that predate material in Reberís own correspondence files currently in Charlottesville, copies of correspondence related to Reberís work between the Research Corporation and other persons, a review of Reberís relationship with the Research Corporation between 1950 and 1957 attributed to Charles H. Schauer, and a section about Reber from Schauerís summary of his years at Research Corporation written on his retirement.

This photocopied correspondence is not owned by the NRAO Archives, and is retained solely for informational purposes. Permission to quote from the material or to make copies must be obtained from the Research Corporation.

The first table below lists the correspondence, and the second table lists miscellaneous papers; the Archives also has 8 issues of the Research Corporation Quarterly Bulletin collected by Reber, Fall 1963-Fall 1966.
