Papers of William Nierenberg, documenting the full spectrum of his long career as a professor, academic administrator, and advisor to major science-oriented government committees. The collection is focused on his years as director of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO).

William Aaron Nierenberg (1919-2000) was born in New York City on February 3, 1919. He attended Townsend Harris High School and graduated Summa Cum Laude from City College New York in 1939 with a B.S. in Math and Physics.

He began graduate work in physics at Columbia in 1939. When the United States joined World War II, he was recruited to the Manhattan Project by Enrico Fermi and John R. Dunning, where he worked as a section leader from 1942-1945. Following the war, Nierenberg returned to Columbia and received his PhD in Physics in 1947. His advisor was I. I. Rabi.

After two years on the faculty of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Nierenberg became a professor of Physics at University of California, Berkeley in 1950, where he established the Atomic Beam Laboratory. In 1965 Nierenberg accepted an offer to become the director of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, a position he held until he stepped down in 1986.

Nierenberg held many high level international scientific and diplomatic positions and titles throughout his long career, including: NATO Science Advisor, member of JASON, and chairman of the National Advisory Committee on Oceans and Atmospheric Records (NACOA).

He was a member of: the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the National Academy of Sciences, the American Geophysical Union, the American Philosophical Society, American Association for the Advancement of Science, National Academy of Engineering, as well as dozens of professional societies and committees, and had a long history of serving as a consultant within academia and both the government and private sectors.

William Nierenberg died of cancer on September 11, 2000.

Papers of William Nierenberg, documenting the full spectrum of his long career as a professor, academic administrator, and advisor to major science-oriented government committees. The collection is focused on his years as director of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO).

The Nierenberg Papers include voluminous correspondence, manuscripts, office files, documentation of service and participation in organizations and committees, photographs, audiovisual recordings, and other files collected by William Nierenberg. There is very little personal material in the collection, though the detail provided by the record of his time as director of SIO is extensive, including daily office correspondence and telephone messages. A small amount of material dated 1939-1965 documents Nierenberg's graduate research and lecture materials from the University of Michigan and UC Berkeley. Of particular note is documentation of Nierenberg's role as a science advisor to the government and major boards and organizations, including: NATO/UNESCO, the National Research Council's Climate Research Board, the National Advisory Committee on Oceans and Atmosphere (NACOA), the NASA Advisory Council, the National Science Board's Committee on International Science, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, JASON Defense Science Advisory Group, and the Defense Science Board. Nierenberg actively consulted on the subjects of strategic defense, ocean policy, global climate change and its effects, and more during the pivital decades of the second half of the twentieth century, and his papers include correspondence and meeting minutes revealing thought processes and decisions in these areas.

Arranged in nine series: 1) BIOGRAPHICAL, 2) CORRESPONDENCE, 3) ORGANIZATIONS, 4) NATIONAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON OCEANS AND ATMOSPHERE, 5) UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, 6) WRITINGS AND TALKS, 7) STUDY AND TEACHING, 8) PHOTOGRAPHS, and 9) AUDIOVISUAL MATERIALS.

CORRESPONDENCE

Scope and Content of Series

Series 2) CORRESPONDENCE: The structure of the CORRESPONDENCE series directly reflects Nierenberg's organizational style and the arrangement created by him and his secretaries in his office at SIO. Runs of correspondence may overlap in date and content, but the organization reflects how they were arranged at the time they were created or received. WAN often would flag office correspondence as either "Personal" or "Professional" and sort letters accordingly, but by modern standards it is all largely professional as it was created in his capacity as the director of SIO, or emeritus.

Arranged in four subseries:

A) Chronological - Loose: Material filed in chronological order by office staff, covering a wide variety of topics and dating from approximately 1949 to 1990.

B) Chronological - Bound: Letters clasped into large binders in perfect chronological order following WAN's retirement, beginning in 1986; reflects all incoming and outgoing mail from his Scripps office, ranging from high-level correspondence to logistical minutiae. Covers years 1986-2000.

C) Alphabetical: Letters exchanged with colleagues and friends, arranged by Nierenberg into alphabetical order. Occasionally, folders are not labeled with a name, but with a subject (such as corporation, or a theme such as a country name or topic). The dates span the two preceding subseries.

D) Meetings & Event Invitations: Another subseries created and maintained by director's office staff. Material consists of invitations to events (such as meetings, speaking engagements, and formal parties), and other closely related correspondence. Many event invitations and related materials may be found in the other CORRESPONDENCE subseries, or in WRITINGS AND TALKS.
