Abstract:

Robert Fox Bacher began donating his papers to the Archives at the California Institute of Technology in 1989. Comprising 70 boxes and approximately forty linear feet, the collection encompasses most of Bacher's distinguished career. The scientific work represented in the collection includes his early research in the physics laboratory of the University of Michigan, his experimental labors for the Manhattan Project and, at the California Institute of Technology, his participation in the high-energy synchrotron. The majority of the collection is devoted to Bacher's administrative duties, consulting services and professional work. This includes Bacher's work as head of experimental physics in Los Alamos, his involvement in the fledgling UN Atomic Energy Commission, his role in the President's Science Advisory Committee (PSAC) and his responsibilities within the Universities Research Association (URA). As head of physics and as Provost, Bacher was also an influential administrator at Caltech, and his substantial involvement in the various affairs of the Institute are well represented in the collection. In addition to the extensive documents in the collection are a considerable number of photographs and artifacts which testify to the considerable breadth of Bacher's career.
