Arizona State University Science Pioneers, 1955-1970
Arizona State University's early research scientists were scholarly pioneers of earth, ice, animal, mineral, and space. In Arizona State's first days of transformation from a small college to a true university, these scientists were already leaders in their fields, asking tough questions and seeking elusive answers. Their work at ASU helped others to understand venomous animals, meteorites, genetics, rare earth oxides, frozen deserts, and local geology.
This exhibit was developed from the University Archives of Arizona State University Libraries. It features the documents, notebooks, images, specimens, and equipment of ASU researchers including Dr. Herb Stahnke of the Department of Biology, Dr. Carleton Moore and H. H. Nininger of the Center for Meteorite Studies, Dr. Charles Woolf of the Zoology Department, Dr. LeRoy Eyring of the Eyring Center for Solid State Science, and Dr. Troy Péwé of the Department of Geology.
