Biographical Note

Born 4 December 1931 in Basel, Switzerland, Hermann August Grunder has been a very vocal advocate for the sciences especially within the Department of Energy, having worked for multiple labs during his estimated forty years within the National Laboratory system. Dr. Grunder obtained his Master's Degree in Engineering from the Kalrsruhe Institute of Technology (Germany) in 1958 and in 1967 earned his doctorate in experimental nuclear physics from the University of Basel. He entered the National Laboratory system in 1959 beginning at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Dr. Grunder spent a cumulative 17 years (approximately) with the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, moving on to the Directorship of the up-and-coming Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility from 1985 - 2000. In 2000, he accepted the directorship of the National Lab system's oldest lab: Argonne. It was from this lab that he retired in 2005.


Scope and Content

This collection contains material related to the time Dr. Hermann Grunder spent as the Director for Jefferson Lab (known then as Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility - CEBAF). Included are blueprints for the accelerator site as well as publications, correspondence, and planning for the development of the laboratory. Presentations have been digitized and there are hard copies available within the collection.


Arrangement

Series I: Director's Office. This series and subseries deal specifically within the Director's Office of Jefferson Lab. There is correspondence included in the subseries, some to or from Dr. Grunder and others things that crossed his desk during his tenure as director.
