Born in 1944, Dr. Lawrence S. Cardman was born and completed high school in Pelham, New York. He continued his studies at Yale University, where he received his B.S. in physics in 1966 and a Ph.D. in experimental nuclear physics in 1972. After a postdoctoral fellowship at the National Bureau of Standards (now NIST) in Gaithersurg, MD, he joined the faculty of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1973 as a professor of physics. Over the next two decades he carried out research studying nuclei with the electromagnetic interaction and building electron accelerators at the Nuclear Physics Laboratory at Illinois. He also collaborated in experiments at NBS, C.E.N. Saclay (France), NIKHEF (Holland), and MIT.
Dr. Cardman was an early user involved in CEBAF (the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility, now known as the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility), serving as User Co-Manager for Hall C during its construction, and delivering elements of the HMS spectrometer detector and the first polarized electron source for the laboratory. He joined the staff at CEBAF in 1993, and served as Associate Director for Physics from 1997 to 2011. He was also on the faculty of the University of Virginia as a Governor's Distinguished Professor. During his career Dr. Cardman has published over 100 papers, mainly on electromagnetic interaction studies of nuclei, instrumentation, and accelerator physics. He is married to Helen-Andrea Cardman, with whom he has two sons and a daughter.
This collection contains material related to the discourse within the National Laboratory system regarding the best site for the National Electron Accelerator Laboratory (NEAL). Included is correspondence, site reports, recommendations and comments.
This collection is arranged chronologically into three series:
- Series I: Correspondences. This series contains the correspondences from Larry Cardman and other communications he was a part of for the development of the plan for NEAL.
- Series II: Reports, Comments, Responses. This series pertains to all manner of reports, responses and commentary from various national laboratories as well as federal offices regarding the petitions from Argonne and SURA. These are arranged chronologically.
- Series III: Miscellany. This series includes editorials, bulletins, and other administrative information.
This is not a restricted collection and is available to all researchers.
- The collection may be used solely for noncommercial, educational, and research purposes by researchers and historians. Please contact the Jefferson Lab Records Management Office if you would like to use the collection.
