Descriptive Entry:
This record unit consists primarily of administrative files maintained by Robert V. Bartnik in his capacity as Assistant Director (Administration), 1970-1973. A smaller amount of material was created by his predecessor, Tillinqhast, 1964-1969. The files are arranged alphabetically by subject and include correspondence, memoranda, charts, reports, and scientific papers. The records are primarily administrative in nature and concern personnel, fiscal planning, conferences and meetings, computer operations, and building and office space matters. Of special interest are files documenting SAO relations with other astronomical organizations including the Cambridge Radio Observatory Committee and the Northeast Radio Observatory Corporation. Also contained in the record unit is material concerning SAO scientific projects including Cannonball, Celescope, the Satellite Tracking Program, and the Environmental Sciences Program. A small amount of correspondence of Leon Campbell, Jr., Special Assistant to the Director, 1969-1971, is included in the records.
