Scope and Content Note

Series VII. Publications

Extent: 55 linear ft. (Boxes 92 –147)

Dates: 1952 – 1988 (bulk dates 1968 – 1975)

Contents: Articles, catalogs, conference proceedings, congressional publications, handbooks, newsletters, pamphlets, periodicals, research proposals, research reports, technical reports, and textbooks.

Four subseries. Series contents described at summary levels (box or folder range, rather than item level).

This series represents a library of technical reports, conference proceedings, miscellaneous periodicals about solar energy, and other publications collected by Böer and Solar Energy Systems, Inc.

VII.A. Articles contains both published and unpublished articles collected by Böer throughout his career. The files, arranged alphabetically by author, represent his diverse research interests as well as the publishing careers of many of his friends and associates.

VII.B. Research Progress Reports, the largest subseries in this collection, contains a mix of technical reports regarding contract work and annual/quarterly reports on the progress of grant-funded research occurring at various laboratories and research centers, including the University of Delaware. Series VII.B. is arranged alphabetically by name of the reporting laboratory, private company, or educational institution. Note: “University of Delaware” is filed under “Delaware,” as are other universities, i.e. “University of Oregon” is filed under “Oregon.”

VII.C. Conference Proceedings contains published conference proceedings, mostly from the late 1970s and early 1980s. Of particular interest are the annual conference proceedings of the American Section of the International Solar Energy Society, of which Böer was an influential and active member. The subseries contains proceedings organized both by sponsoring organization and by topic.

VII.D. Miscellaneous Publications contains books, handbooks, government reports, and journals collected by Böer’s office. Included are congressional reports and hearings related to the energy crisis and solar energy production in the early 1970s, Böer’s own Advances in Solar Energy, catalogs and pricing guides related to the manufacture and distribution of solar cell and other renewable power sources, and a variety of energy-related periodical.
