Robert E. Marshak Papers, Ms1988-060


More About the Papers

The Robert E. Marshak Papers were acquired by the Special Collections Department of the Virginia Tech University Libraries in two separate donations. The first approximately 5 cubic feet of materials, known also as the Rochester Conference Papers, was given by Dr. Marshak in 1989. These papers are primarily about the Rochester Conferences on High Energy Physics (1950-70), which involved thirty-five Nobel Prize winners, twenty-seven of whom were conference participants. The second approximately 61 cubic feet of materials was given by his widow Ruth G. Marshak in 1994. It includes items such as correspondence, notes, reports, speeches, news clippings, photographs, and other personalia from Dr. Marshak's high school days in the 1920s to his untimely death in 1993. The bulk of the papers pertaining to Dr. Marshak's term as President of the City College of New York are archived by the Hoover Institute on War, Revolution, and Peace at Stanford University.
