SIO subject files, 1890-1982 (bulk 1930-1970) (SAC 6)

OFF-SITE STORAGE: COLLECTION STORED OFF-SITE. ALLOW ONE WEEK FOR RETRIEVAL OF MATERIALS.

Extent: 35.2 Linear feet (88 archives boxes and 5 map case folders)

View OnlineA selection of material from this collection was digitized for the California Explores the Ocean Project in 2002. To find archival material exclusively from SAC 6, go to the UC San Diego Library Digital Collections website, and do a search on the following term, in quotes: "SIO Subject Files Records, 1890-1981".

The Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) Subject Files contain materials documenting the history of SIO and, more broadly, the historical development of oceanography in the twentieth century.

The SIO Subject Files were started in the late 1970s by Elizabeth Shor, who organized all materials acquired by the SIO Archives - including personal papers of individuals and records from SIO offices - into separate subject and biographical files. Papers determined to be pertinent to specific subjects were placed in the Subject Files (SAC 6), while correspondence specific to individuals was filed by name in the Biographical Files (SAC 5). Shor maintained this system until her departure in 1981, whereupon no further materials were added.

The Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) Subject Files contain materials documenting the history of SIO and, more broadly, organizations with relationships to SIO and the history of the study of oceanography in the twentieth century. The collection includes correspondence, memoranda, budgets, proposals, reports, and oversize materials such as blueprints and drawings.

The collection was originally conceived and arranged in two major sections: materials related to the history of SIO, and materials not directly related to SIO, but which document parallel organizations, projects and developments in the history of oceanography.

Arranged in two series: 1) SIO SUBJECT FILES, and 2) NON-SIO SUBJECT FILES.

SIO Biographical Files, SAC 5. Special Collections & Archives, UC San Diego.

The Subject Files received major processing attention twice: first in 1981, and next in 2016. In 1981 Deborah Day, the incoming SIO archivist, closed the collection and gave it the number AC 6 (now SAC 6). Day sorted through the subject files, preserving the organizational structure created by Elizabeth Shor, and wrote a descriptive finding aid.

To enhance searchability and ease of use, the finding aid was modernized in 2016 and the collection was culled for out-of-scope materials. Though the physical order of materials was largely retained, subject file groups of substantial size and importance were restructured as subseries, and oversized and digitized materials previously not included the finding aid were linked and made easily accessible. The bulk of the papers were left in their alphabetical arrangement, sorted by subjects, with the folder titles originally conceived by Shor.

SIO SUBJECT FILES

Scope and Content of Series

Series 1) SIO SUBJECT FILES: The larger of the two series in the collection, the SIO SUBJECT FILES include materials ranging from the Institution's early inception as the Marine Biological Association of San Diego; to the development of the La Jolla campus; to research projects, programs, and ocean expeditions. Materials include correspondence, budgets, staff lists, contracts, and designs of buildings and ships, in addition to proposals and reports for programs, research projects and expeditions.

Arranged in 15 subseries: A) Administration; B) Alpha Helix Program; C) Budget; D) Buildings and Property; E) Ceremonies; F) Conferences; G) Expeditions; H) Marine Biological Association of San Diego; I) Marine Facilities; J) Marine Physical Laboratory; K) Marine Vertebrates Division; L) Public Affairs Office; M) Research; N) Ships; and O) Miscellaneous.

A) Administration: Documentation dating from the 1920s to 1970s on SIO and its relationship to University of California, as well as administrative memoranda, committee correspondence, reports, and notes from faculty meetings.

B) Alpha Helix Program: Correspondence, research proposals, and cruise reports related to the Program, which was funded by the National Science Foundation.

C) Budget: Annual and biennial budget reports and correspondence covering the years 1906-1980. Budgets include expenditures for departments and projects.

D) Buildings and Property: Correspondence, budgets, copies of land deeds, building design sketches and property maps documenting planning and construction of the SIO campus. Structures including the original SIO cottages, the pier, Ritter Hall, George H. Scripps Memorial Marine Biological Laboratory (the "Old Scripps Building"), the Eckart Building (formerly the SIO Library), Physiological Research Laboratory (PRL), Nimitz Marine Facility, Camp Elliot, as well as roads and seawall development. Some folders also include materials on long range campus planning.

E) Ceremonies: Announcements, programs, correspondence, and other papers documenting celebrations sponsored by SIO. Includes dedications for buildings and ships, UC Charter Day, and celebrations for the 75th anniversaries of SIO and the University of California.

F) Conferences: Correspondence, programs, transcripts, and other papers documenting SIO-related conferences. Meetings include the CalCOFI Sardine Conferences, Eastern Pacific Ocean Conference, and Pacific Tuna Conference. Also includes a copy of the "Position of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in the University, State and Nation" as presented at the 83rd Anniversary of the Charter of the University of California (see also Charter Day in Ceremonies subseries).

G) Expeditions: Correspondence, schedules, maps, expedition planning and participation proposals, reports, ship logs, and a few diaries from people who participated in expeditions. Folder titles typically include the expedition name, dates and ship(s). Files are arranged chronologically and include general and expedition-specific folders. Several dozen expeditions are included here, but major ones include the Operation Crossroads, MidPac, Capricorn, Naga, Monsoon, Lusiad, Antipode, and Billabong expeditions.

H) Marine Biological Association of San Diego: Correspondence, meeting minutes, budgets and other records pertaining to the Marine Biological Association of San Diego, including the record of incorporation and by-laws for the Association.

I) Marine Facilities: Correspondence, memoranda, schedules, summaries of operations, financial records, crew lists and other materials documenting the work of Marine Facilities, established in 1948 to oversee the SIO fleet and coordinate services of crew and maintenance staff.

J) Marine Physical Laboratory: Correspondence, reports, and other papers documenting MPL activities. The MPL was established in 1946 as an offshoot of the University of California Division of War Research (UCDWR).

K) Marine Vertebrates Division: Correspondence, reports, and other papers documenting the Division's establishment (1948) and activities.

L) Public Affairs Office: Includes SIO fact sheets, correspondence, and scripts for films and shows produced and/or filmed at SIO.

M) Research: Correspondence, contracts and research summaries concerning broad areas of research pursued by SIO scientists, including beach erosion, waves and currents dynamics, fisheries, tuna, kelp, and Bathyscaphe development.

N) Ships: Correspondence, specifications, plans, contracts, memoranda, ship operations data, maintenance logs, and other papers documenting vessels and platforms owned, chartered, operated, or otherwise affiliated with SIO. Materials include information on the vessels , and , , and , , , and many others.

O) Miscellaneous: Diverse files on SIO-related history and subjects, ranging from staff lists to folders on major projects or initiatives such as the Deep Sea Drilling Project, Institute of Marine Resources, and Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics. Materials include correspondence, memoranda, data, contracts, reports, publications, and oversize concept drawings. Of particular interest is documentation on, and responses to, the controversial 1950 loyalty oath required by the University of California; and documents on the development of an expanded radio communications network, Radio Station WWD, following the expansion of the SIO fleet after World War II. Files are arranged alphabetically by folder title.
