Notes:
A failed project, begun in 1988, to build what would have been the world's largest particle accelerator, to enable scientists to study the collisions of subatomic particles approximating those of the Big Bang. The site chosen was Ellis County, Texas. Funding for the SSC was cancelled in 1993 after much controversy.
Summary:
A variety of papers documenting the efforts by persons in eight competing states to have the Superconducting Super Collider built in their state, as well as efforts in each state to oppose locating the SSC within their state. The materials include correspondence, press kits, posters, signs, bumper stickers, leaflets, handbills, clippings, two photographs and one videotape.
