Descriptive Entry:
These papers mostly document Edward L. Fireman's scientific research program at the SAO, particularly his work on meteorites, lunar samples, satellite debris, and polar ice. They also concern his participation at conferences and symposia and other professional activities. They include incoming and outgoing correspondence with colleagues, research and professional organizations, and publishers; research and laboratory notebooks; notebooks and 35mm slides concerning his research on ice at Camp Century, Greenland, 1963-1966; and notes, lectures, manuscripts, proposals, reprints, data, 35mm and lantern slides, and related research materials. Some materials are in electronic format.
Historical Note:
Edward L. Fireman (1922-1990) was a physicist and authority on the analysis and dating of extraterrestrial materials. He received a doctorate from Princeton University in 1948 and in 1950 accepted a position as Physicist at the Brookhaven National Laboratory. In 1956, he was appointed Physicist with the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (SAO) where he remained until his death.

Fireman's research interests included the analysis of returned meteorites, lunar samples, and recovered satellites; and investigations concerning cosmic rays, solar flares, muons, and neutrinos. He was also involved in developing methods for measuring the ages of ancient polar ice samples and using the information to refine the earth's climatic record. Fireman was a member of numerous professional societies and the author of some 200 scientific papers.
