Descriptive Entry:
These papers consist largely of correspondence documenting Multhauf's participation in various national and international organizations, most notably the American Council of Learned Societies, History of Science Society, International Union of the History and Philosophy of Science, National Air and Space Administration Historical Committee, Society for the History of Technology, and American Federation of Information Processing Societies. In addition there are manuscripts of published and unpublished articles; copies of major publications including The Origins of Chemistry and A History of Common Salt; research notes; photographs of Multhauf at symposiums; and records pertaining to Isis, for which Multhauf was Editor.
Historical Note:
Robert P. Multhauf (1919-2004), historian of science, was born in Sioux City, South Dakota. He graduated from Iowa State University, B.S., 1941, and received his M.A., 1950, and Ph.D., 1953, from the University of California at Berkeley. Multhauf was employed by the Smithsonian Institution as Associate Curator for the Division of Engineering, United States National Museum (USNM), in 1954. The following year he became Curator of the Division and in 1957 was appointed Head Curator of the Department of Engineering and Industries at USNM. When USNM was reorganized and the Museum of History and Technology (MHT) was established in 1957, Multhauf became Head Curator for the Department of Science and Technology under MHT. He also served as Acting Curator of the Division of Physical Sciences within the Department.

In 1966, Multhauf was appointed Director of MHT and served in this capacity until 1969, the year MHT was renamed the National Museum of History and Technology (NMHT). Afterwards he became Senior Scientific Scholar of the Department of Science and Technology, 1970-1977, and for the Department of the History of Science, 1978-1979, at NMHT. Multhauf joined the staff of the Office of Senior Historians in 1980, when NMHT was renamed the National Museum of American History, and retired from the Smithsonian Institution in 1987.

Introduction:
This finding aid was digitized with funds generously provided by the Smithsonian Institution Women's Committee.
Descriptive Entry:
These records provide partial documentation of the history of HSS, circa 1930-1993. They consist mostly of records maintained by HSS officers which concern annual meetings; membership; the work of HSS committees; the HSS Council; the publication of Isis, Osiris, and other HSS publications; elections of officers; HSS relations with other professional societies; financial matters; and prizes and awards granted by HSS. Also included are records concerning an HSS fundraising campaign started in 1983; files of the HSS Committee on Independent Scholars, 1986-1989; file of Nathan Reingold as chairman of the Conference on Science Manuscripts, 1960, which was co-sponsored by HSS; and copies of the HSS Newsletter.
Historical Note:
The History of Science Society (HSS) was established in 1924 to ensure the future of Isis, the international journal founded by George Sarton in 1912. The purpose of HSS is to promote interest in the history of science, to provide a forum for discussion, and to encourage original research in the field. The Society meets these goals by holding annual meetings and other programs; by issuing Isis, Osiris, and other publications; by awarding prizes and medals for exceptional contributions to the field; and by cooperation with other professional groups. HSS is governed by a council consisting of the officers of the Society: a president, vice-president, executive secretary, treasurer, and editor of Isis; the ex-presidents of the Society; and fifteen additional members elected from and by membership of the Society.

Introduction:
The Smithsonian Institution Archives began its Oral History Program in 1973. The purpose of the program is to supplement the written documentation of the Archives' record and manuscript collections with an Oral History Collection, focusing on the history of the Institution, research by its scholars, and contributions of its staff. Program staff conducts interviews with current and retired Smithsonian staff and others who have made significant contributions to the Institution. There are also interviews conducted by researchers or students on topics related to the history of the Smithsonian or the holdings of the Smithsonian Institution Archives.

Multhauf was interviewed for the Oral History Project because he made significant scholarly and administrative contributions to the Smithsonian during his career.
Descriptive Entry:
Multhauf was interviewed on May 29 and July 23, 1974, by Miriam S. Freilicher and Pamela M. Henson. The interviews cover his education, career as Curator of Engineering, work on the development of the National Museum of History and Technology, and his role as an administrator in the Museum.
Historical Note:
Robert P. Multhauf (1919-2004), a historian of science, received his Ph.D. in 1953 from the University of California at Berkeley. After postdoctoral work at The Johns Hopkins University, he was appointed Curator of Engineering at the U.S. National Museum in 1955. In 1957, he was appointed head Curator of the Department of Science and Technology. From 1966 to 1969, Multhauf served as Director of the new National Museum of History and Technology, now the National Museum of American History, and in 1969 he was appointed Senior Historian of Science. Multhauf also served as editor of Isis from 1964 to 1978.
