Series IV. American Section of International Solar Energy Society (ASISES)
Extent: 7 linear ft. (Boxes 36-43)
Contents: Brochures, conference programs, correspondence, financial papers, flyers & pamphlets, general office files, manuals, meeting minutes, newsletters.
Three subseries, organized by function: Administrative Files, Financial Files, Publication Files. The files are numbered sequentially through the entire series.
Series IV comprises materials related to the American Section of International Solar Energy Society (later shortened to American Solar Energy Society, or ASES), a professional organization that advanced the use of solar energy through the gathering and dissemination of information related to renewable energy sources. The primary activities of ASES include hosting and organizing conferences and symposia, publishing periodicals, scholarly journals, and conference proceedings, and encouraging research and public awareness of solar energy.
Karl W. Böer was an active member of ASES, serving as a member of their Board of Directors beginning in 1974, then as Chairman of the Board from 1976-1977. Böer also served on the Executive Committee, the Publications Committees, the Long Range Planning Committee, and as a member of the Physics Division throughout the late 1970s and early 1980s. ASES opened an office at the University of Delaware in 1978, which eventually became a main office for the organization’s publication projects. For information on their agreement with UD, see ASES IV.A.5 Contract (F86).
Series IV is divided into three subseries and organized alphabetically by topic, largely maintaining the original organizational order. The series primarily documents a portion of the publishing activities and conference involvement of ASES during the late 1970s and early 1980s. A significant amount of correspondence remains interfiled throughout the series, providing useful contextual information about the accompanying materials.
IV.A. Administrative Files subseries comprises the administrative files of ASES and is divided into five smaller sections.
Series IV.A.1. Conference & Meetings section are organized alphabetically by topic and include materials that document ASES policies, planning procedures, and proceedings of various conferences and meetings. Also included are proposal packets from potential host-cities. Conference participation represents one of the organization’s primary activities and this section documents several conferences during the last half of the 1970s; the 1976 ASES-sponsored conference in Winnipeg is particularly well documented.
Series IV.A.2. Committees & Divisions is organized alphabetically and contains materials related to the organizational structure of ASES, documenting the operations and function of the society. The materials in this section show both the scope and the development of ASES as an organization.
Series IV.A.3. Correspondence is organized by year and contains both incoming and outgoing correspondence of Karl Böer, Albert Henderson (Director of Publications), the Headquarters office in Boulder, Colorado, and other miscellaneous correspondents concerning a variety of general business topics and ASES activities.
Series IV.A.4. Solar Energy Associations is organized alphabetically and represents the various state regional chapters affiliated with ASES. These files vary greatly in scope and are primarily comprised of informational materials such as pamphlets and newsletters produced by the individual agencies.
Series IV.A.5. General Files is organized alphabetically by topic and contains miscellaneous materials related to ASES operations and activities, such as Board meetings and Chapter membership.
Series IV.B. Financial subseries contains materials related to ASES budget and financial reports during the late 1970s and early 1980s.
Series IV.C. Publications subseries contains a variety of materials including copyright applications, distribution records, correspondence between contributors and editors, manuscripts of published articles, production materials, profit and loss reports, and other administrative documents. One function of ASES was the preprinting of the papers delivered at the ASES-sponsored Passive Solar Conferences. The proceedings from the Seventh National Passive Solar Conference (Knoxville, Tennessee: 1982) is well represented in this series by production materials, manuscripts, and correspondence. Also included in this section are materials related to various periodicals published by ASES, such as Solar News & Views, Solar Age, and Solar Vision. Other publications include Journal of Wind Energy, Passive Solar Journal, Progress in Solar Energy, and Solar Energy Technology Handbook.
