Notes

Approved by Congress in 1967, what was called the National Accelerator Laboratory began operation in 1972, and was renamed after Enrico Fermi in 1974.

The most comprehensive history of the laboratory is Adrienne Kolb, Lillian Hoddeson, and Catherine Westfall, Fermilab: Physics, the Frontier and Megascience (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2008).

URA Presidents

Universities Research Association, Inc. is a consortium of universities (currently 86), established in 1965 as a means of pushing progress on a major new national accelerator laboratory. From 1967, when the site for the new laboratory was selected, to 2007, URA had administrative authority over the Fermilab project. In 2007 this contract passed to the Fermi Research Alliance LLC, which is a partnership between URA and the University of Chicago.
