Correspondence Series


This series includes both paper correpondence and email. Paper correspondence was filed by Brown in binders in rough but somewhat overlapping chronological order, and is dated May 1977-April 1984, with the bulk dated 1977-1980 when Brown was Site Director in Green Bank. Correspondence from the binders has been merged into a single chronological file. Topics vary widely, including publications, observing time, visitors, outreach, instrumentation, and operations and administrative matters. Approximately 16,500 sent email messages dated 1997-2002 were received on CD and are available digitally; contact the Archivist for access information. Emails cover a variety of topics, with the bulk related to the MMA and to ALMA. Researchers should note that there is significant correspondence filed by Brown with other materials, e.g. in the Millimeter Array Series or in the NRAO Administration Series.
