Oral history interviews. High-Energy Physics. Probes: CESR-CLEO: The CLEO Experiment at CESR, 1991.
Interviews (listed by institutional member of the collaboration and by name of individual) were conducted with: California Institute of Technology: Ryszard Stoynowski; Cornell University, Newman Laboratory of Nuclear Studies: Chris Bebek, Karl Berkelman (spokesperson), Bernard Gittelman, Boyce McDaniel (laboratory director), Albert Silverman (spokesperson), Maury Tigner (accelerator physicist); Harvard University: Francis M. Pipkin; Ohio State University: Harris Kagan (group leader), Richard Kass (Ohio State U.); Purdue University: David Miller; SUNY, Albany: M. Sajjad Alam; Syracuse University: Nahmin Horwitz (secretary), Giancarlo Moneti (spokesperson); University of California, Santa Barbara: Rollin Morrison; University of Colorado: James Smith; University of Florida: David Besson; University of Rochester: Jan Guida (student, interviewed at FNAL), Edward Thorndike (spokesperson), Paul Tipton (student and postdoc, interviewed at FNAL); Vanderbilt University: Robert S. Panvini (interviewed at DOE), Sheldon Stone; Virginia Polytechnic Institute: Alexander Abashian (interviewed at FNAL with respect to his activities as NSF Program Officer). Other institutions in the collaboration include: Rutgers University, Carnegie-Mellon University, and Ithaca College.
A documentation research project to study the complex issues facing the historical documentation of multi-institutional collaborations in physics and allied sciences. CLEO, a general-purpose solenoid detector, was built to survey the energy range of the CESR (Cornell Electron Storage Ring), which was designed to achieve peak luminosity between the energy ranges of SPEAR (Stanford Positron-Electron Accelerator Ring) and PEP (Positron-Electron Project) at SLAC (Stanford Linear Accelerator Center). Both accelerator and detector designs were frozen before the discovery at Fermilab of the bottom quark and the family of upsilon particles, which CESR efficiently produces. Beginning in the early 1980s, the CLEO detector went through a series of "upgrades" to tailor it to the study of the bottom quark.
