William O. Baker Papers

Baker's papers document his government service beginning with President Eisenhower, as well as his career at Bell Labs, and include correspondence, writings, and reports. The papers include materials on his governmental service at both the federal and New Jersey state level, notably for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board (PFIAB), President's Science Advisory Committee (PSAC), New Jersey Board of Higher Education, and New Jersey Commission on Science and Technology. The papers on Bell Labs primarily cover his management of the lab and their research accomplishments from the time he became vice president for research in 1955, but also include papers related to his own research.
