Reines at the blackboardA year ago the AIP History Center awarded a $10,000 matching grant to the University of California_Irvine to process the papers of Nobel laureate Frederick Reines. The cataloging record and finding aid for the collection are now available online www.lib.uci.edu/libraries/collections/special/faccolletions3.html. UCI ArchivistReines inspecting neutrino detection equipment William Landis reports that the support “enabled the UCI Libraries to process and make accessible to researchers an important collection in a very short amount of time... The exhibit based on the Frederick Reines Papers [January-May 2000] that was funded in part by the AIP grant is among the most successful and well-received of any the UCI Libraries has ever mounted. As a testament to the importance of these papers and the timeliness of AIP’s grant to UCI, we have already been contacted by a researcher with a research interest in Reines... a historian of science from the Physics Department at the University of Vermont will be spending a week with us in mid-April, working mainly on the early neutrino experiments materials in the Reines Papers.” For additional information, contact William Landis, Manuscripts Librarian, Dept. of Special Collection, UCI Libraries, Irvine, CA 92623-9557 (949) 824-3113, "Project Poltergeist" team"Project Poltergeist" teamblandis@uci.edu.
