Oral history interviews. Ground-based astronomy: Keck Observatory, 1996-1997.
Interviews include: Sandra Faber (University of California, Santa Cruz), Keith Matthews, and Jerry Nelson (Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory)
A documentation research project to study the complex issues facing the historical documentation of multi-institutional collaborations in physics and allied sciences. Phase III focused on four disciplinary areas of ground-based astronomy, materials science, heavy-ion physics, and medical physics, and a category named computer-mediated collaborations. The Keck Observatory project is a collaboration of the California Institute of Technology and the University of California system and, secondarily, the University of Hawaii and NASA to build and operate two 10-meter telescopes in Hawaii. Project management done by the California Assn. for Research in Astronomy, which was created for the purpose of building the observatories; science management came from both LBL and Santa Cruz. One telescope has been in use since 1993, the second since the late 1990s. The construction has been principally funded through gifts from the Keck Foundation to Caltech; operations are principally funded by the University of California.
