Historical Note

The OSU Sea Grant program was established on Feb. 20, 1968 as a result of the National Sea Grant Program and College Act of 1966. It was the first and largest of three programs set up at that time. Its mission was to develop "an understanding and appreciation of how to live with the ocean and how to manage the coastal zone." The program has focused on five areas: marine extension, education and training, seafood research, coastal environments, and public policy analysis. It is cooperatively funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, by the State of Oregon and local communities, and by private industry. Initially administered by Oceanography Professor Herbert F. Frolander, the Sea Grant program at OSU has also been directed by William Wick (1973-1988) and Robert Malouf (1989-).

Walter G. Jones earned bachelor's (1951) and master's (1958) degrees from Oregon State College. At the time of his death in 1980, he had worked for more than 25 years in fisheries and was chief of fisheries development for the National Marine Fisheries Service, Alaska Region. Former National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) administrator John A. Knauss helped to found the Sea Grant Program.

Content Description

Series I consists of proposals submitted to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) of the U.S. Dept. of Commerce and the National Science Foundation for Sea Grant program funding, and include budget summaries, research projects progress reports, a program administration narrative, and biographical information on program personnel. These institutional program proposals cover the years 1967 to 2000. Proposals for the funding and continuation of the Pacific Sea Grant Advisory Program and College Program are also included in this series as well as two proposals for individual projects: "Innovative Marine Biotechnology Harnessing Cellular Machinery" and "Adapting To Change: Fishing Businesses, Families, Communities, and Regions".

In addition to biennial reports, Series II consists of project completion reports, five-year plans, research studies, an administrative review report, Marine Advisory Program leader field reports, and project rosters. The news releases and clippings pertain to research results, awards, and new staff and faculty appointments. The series also documents the 1968-69 dispute between OSU's Marine Science Center and the University of Oregon's Marine Biology Institute.

The audiotapes consists of complete Coastwatch radio programs produced and distributed by Sea Grant Communications as well as interviews and individual reports used in those programs. The awards records pertain to fellowships administered by Sea Grant in conjunction with other organizations, including the American Fisheries Society, the Governor's Natural Resource Office, and the Oregon Coastal Zone Management Association. Awards described in this series include the Dean John A Knauss Fellowship and the Walter G. Jones Fisheries Development Award, which was established in 1981 as a scholarship to encourage graduate work in fisheries development.

Series VI consists primarily of correspondence, but also contains flyers, publications, and reports. In addition to administrative correspondence and chronological files, this series covers a number of subjects, including: conferences and workshops sponsored by Sea Grant, congressional re-authorization of the Sea Grant program, annual site reviews by the national Sea Grant office, the Sea Grant Association, and the procedure for submission of proposals and other paperwork.

The committee records contain correspondence, minutes, and reports generated by various administrative bodies in Sea Grant, including the Council of Sea Grant Directors, Sea Grant Advisory Council, and the Sea Grant Coordinating Committee. Among the foci covered by these committees include procedural modification process, awards selection, and the Pacific Sea Grant Advisory Program. Publications generated by Sea Grant and the Pacific Sea Grant Advisory Program constitute the bulk of Series VIII, which includes flyers and brochures for Sea Grant sponsored events, newsletters, studies, and guides to resources available from the Pacific Sea Grant Advisory Program.
