Samuel A. Goudsmit Papers, 1921-1979

Series VI. University of Nevada, Desert Research Institute

The Desert Research Institute was organized at the University of Nevada at Reno in 1960 to conduct fundamental and applied research. Wendell A. Mordy became its first director. Goudsmit was asked to comment on the first proposal for funding for the Institute from the Research Corporation foundation. He showed much interest in the Institute from its outset, but did not join its advisory board until 1965. The material in this series includes general information about the Institute, reports of its advisory committee, and correspondence with its directors and other committee members.
