Scope and content

Throughout his career, Prof. Prentice was a member of and held numerous administrative positions on professional associations such as High Energy Physics group, the Institute of Particle Physics, the Canadian Association of Physicists, Universities Research Association, and the National Science and Engineering Research Council. His expertise was also sought by boards and committees of research institutions such as the Canadian High Energy Electron Ring (CHEER), the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (FNAL), the Deutsches Elektronen Synchrotron (DESY), the Cornell Electron Storage Ring (CESR), Hadron Elektron Ring Anlage (HERA), and the Superconducting, Super Collider Program Advisory Committee (SCC).

This series documents his contribution to these associations and research institutions. The files are grouped by association or institution, and are arranged somewhat chronologically. They contain correspondence, minutes of meetings, memos, drafts, final reports and position papers. They not only document Prof. Prentice’s personal involvement but also contain a wealth of information about what issues defined Canadian physicists in this period and give evidence to the growth and demands of high energy physics as a research discipline.
