This Series contains administrative and other records pertaining to the Natural History Museum Outreach Program of the University of Missouri's Division of Biological Sciences, (1974-2007, bulk 1979-1981). The records consist of Institute of Museum Services (IMS) grant files and other funding records, correspondence and memoranda, scripts for the program's displays, research files, personnel records [RESTRICTED], photographic slides and negatives, and audio tapes. The Outreach Program was intended to be displayed in communities throughout Missouri by bringing "key components of natural history museums and experimental laboratories at the University of Missouri-Columbia to citizens who live in rural areas of the State." Among its display themes were "The Tall Grass Prairie - A Living Sea," "Endangered Birds and Mammals of Missouri," "Poisonous Plants and Animals," and "Miracle Grains - Products of Genetic and Taxonomic Research." The Outreach Program was initially financed through an IMS grant obtained by Professor James E. Carrel. Gary Reese served as the project's lead designer.
