Descriptive Entry
A greater part of these records document the administrative activities of Ross B. Simons as the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Science, but these records also include some material from when he served as the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Research (1988-1992). They consist mostly of correspondence and memoranda pertaining to science programs at the Smithsonian Institution and abroad. The records make reference to the Smithsonian-led "Debt for Nature" negotiations; United States-Asia Environmental Partnership case study; budget appropriations; Council of American Overseas Research Centers (CAORC); Board of Regents reports; conferences and seminars; Conservation Training Council minutes of meetings; grants and fellowships; Collections Information System planning; Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory "Advanced X-Ray Astrophysics Facility" (AXAF); research at the Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory (FLWO); and personnel matters.
