    Call Number: SC0182
    Creator: Shaw, Edward E.
    Title: Edward E. Shaw papers
    Dates: 1967-1976
    Physical Description: 8.5 Linear feet (7 boxes)
    Summary: These records reflect the wide variety of assignments carried out by Shaw as Executive Assistant to William F. Miller. Those files which pre-date Shaw's association with the Provost's office in 1970 were apparently inherited by Shaw and generated by Miller's office during the years 1967 -70. These include, among others, the Provost's Computer Committee and the Stanford Computation Center files. The bulk of Shaw's files fall within the period 1970-73, although they extend to 1976 in some areas. Included are correspondence, reports, minutes, memoranda, proposals, grant files, calendars, patent files, and other materials regarding computation, research funding, budgetary matters, and university administration. All files are of general material and correspondence unless otherwise noted on the folder. The contents have been left in their original arrangement within the folders.
    Language(s): The materials are in English.

    Processing Notes

    The original file folders have been retained where they were available (a large amount of material was not in folders when it arrived at the Archives). When larger groupings have been discernable, such as the Stanford Computation Center files, they have been left together. The whole record group has been arranged alphabetically by subject.

    Separated Materials

    Mimeographed multiple copies and Stanford catalogs available elsewhere have been removed from the collection. Two maps have been incorporated into the map collection: 1) a map of the Stanford water lines, 1973; 2) map, "Improvement of Parking Lot 'J''', 1973.

    Of special interest are the files on the establishment of BALLOTS (Box 1); the files on affirmative action and salary parity for women (Box 1); Shaw's chronological files (Box 2); and the Wage/Price Freeze files (Box 7). The files in general contain a significant amount of material on research grants, proposals and patents.
