Biographical Sketch

The Center for Energy Research was created in the mid-1970s to assist Texas Tech University faculty in the development of energy projects and in expediting proposal preparation. Projects initiated have included increasing public awareness concerning alternative energy sources available, solar irrigation, gasohol, developing new alternative energy technology, and the Crosbyton Solar Power Project.


Scope and Content

The collection consists of correspondence from 1978 and 1979, first and second drafts of annual reports from 1979, and annual reports titled Project Highlights. It also consists of articles and research written for the center. There is also an article about the Crosbyton Solar Power Project with drafts and edited copies. These have been kept in original order and folders with the first and second drafts of annual reports alphabetized by author.
