Descriptive Entry:
This record unit consists of files created primarily by OES, 1970-1973, and OIEP, 1973-1975. Also included are some records of OIP, 1975-1976. Files predating the creation of OES in October 1969 are those of Irvin Eugene Wallen, in his capacity as Assistant Director for Oceanography, NMNH, and Head of the Office of Oceanography and Limnology, 1964-1969. The records consist of correspondence and memoranda, project proposals and reports, and publications; and include a file documenting the administration and operation of the Center for Short-Lived Phenomena, 1967-1976, and administrative records, 1964-1975. For other records of OES and OIEP see Record Units 218, 271, and 273.
Historical Note:
The history of the Office of International Programs (OIP) can be traced to October 1969 when the Office of Environmental Sciences (OES) was established under the Assistant Secretary for Science. Irvin Eugene Wallen, who had served since 1962 as Assistant Director for Oceanography, National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) and Head of the Office of Oceanography and Limnology, was appointed Director of OES. William L. Eilers replaced Wallen as Director in 1971. Programs and offices under OES direction included: the Ecology Program; the Oceanography and Limnology Program (OLP), including the Smithsonian Oceanographic Sorting Center and the Mediterranean Marine Sorting Center; the Center for Short-Lived Phenomena (CSLP); and the Chesapeake Bay Center for Environmental Studies (CBCES), which become an independent bureau in 1973.

In October 1973, OES was merged with the Office of International Activities to form the Office of International and Environmental Programs (OIEP). Wymberley D. Coerr, former Ambassador to Ecuador and Uruguay, was appointed Director of the new office. Eilers became Deputy Director of OIEP. Programs under the direction of OIEP included the Smithsonian Foreign Currency Program and the International Liaison Program, as well as the programs administered by its predecessor, OES. In May 1975 OIEP was renamed the Office of International Programs (OIP).

Descriptive Entry:
These records document the general administrative activities of the Office of International and Environmental Programs, and in particular, the Office's environmental research programs. They include general administrative correspondence, contract files, agency reports, program files, case files, and project reports concerning the organizational structure of the Office; personnel requirements; legal information on contractual agreements and project specifications; fiscal information relating to the Foreign Currency Program; budgetary outlays and fund allocations; and environmental information relating to marine ecology, schistosomiasis, specific fauna, and other scientific projects.
Historical Note:
In October 1973 the Office of International and Environmental Programs (OIEP) was established by merging the previously created Office of International Activities with the Office of Environmental Science. Wimberly Coerr, former ambassador to Ecuador and Uruguay, was appointed director of the new office.

The Office of International Activities had been created in 1966 to develop and administer programs of international cooperation, emphasizing basic research in the humanities and sciences, and to administer the Smithsonian Foreign Currency Program. William Warner was appointed Director. When Warner became acting assistant secretary for public service in 1968, David Challinor was appointed acting director. Challinor became director in 1969 and served in that capacity until he became acting assistant secretary (science) in 1971. Challinor was succeeded by Kenneth B. Schmertz, who was appointed acting director.

The Office of Environmental Science was established in October 1969, with Irvin Eugene Wallen appointed as its director. The Office's primary function was to make visible the Smithsonian's research projects in environmental science and find ways of receiving financial support and scientific collaboration from other environmental agencies.

When the two offices merged, William L. Eilers was appointed deputy director of OIEP and acting director of the Ecology Program. Schmertz was made director of the Smithsonian Foreign Currency Program.

Under OIEP, the old programs were given continued support. Those programs included the Oceanography and Limnology Program, which consisted mainly of two oceanographic sorting centers processing bulk marine samples, monitoring and assessing marine pollution, and conducting environmental prediction studies; the Ecology Program, which assisted in planning for the selection of ecologically significant localities in the United States through studies provided by the Center for Natural Areas and, through the Smithsonian-Peace Corps Environmental Program, helped develop Peace Corps projects concerning environmental problems abroad and recruited project applicants skilled in the environmental biological sciences; the International Activities Program, which granted awards to American institutions and Smithsonian units conducting research in those countries where the United States held an excess of local currency and assisted Smithsonian personnel involved in travel and research abroad; and the Center for Short-Lived Phenomena, which operated a world-wide electronic alert system in order to collect data concerning natural and environmental events of short duration.
