Scope and Content Note

This Sub-Group contains records of the University of Missouri President's Office pertaining to the UM-System Research Reactor (MURR). Included in this Sub-Group are correspondence, general administrative records, reports from the Argonne National Laboratory, MURR annual reports, staff publications, American Nuclear Society (ANS) Reactor Operations Division newsletters, MURR personnel records, ANS committee records, MURR design and construction records, technical specifications, ANS officer election ballots, ANS Reactor Operations Division survey results, pre-operational test procedures, hazard reports (with addenda), and reports concerning "anticipated transients without scram." Correspondence topics include Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) licensing, AEC inspections, MURR construction, MURR administration, MURR-related UM-System committees, interdepartmental cooperation, planning for a nuclear education program, American Nuclear Society Conferences, American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) conferences, ASTM committees, MURR contracts with Gamma Industries, legislative requests for MURR funding, contracts with Nuclear Medicine Incorporated (NMI), and the Ford Research Reactor and Phoenix Lab.
Note to Researcher: For more information on the UM-System Research Reactor, see Series 8, Sub-Group 46 of Record Group 1 C.

Historical Note:

The Research Reactor transferred from UM-System to MU in 1989. Records received from the Research Reactor after this date belong to C:10/8 rather than UW:4/70. Research Reactor Annual Reports will continue to be added to UW:4/70/1 however.
