Series V. Carnegie Mellon University -- (1924) 1948-1995. There are two major components to the series. One is the assortment of research proposals, grant applications, project reports and correspondence addressed to the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and the Office of Naval Research. The second major component is seven boxes of technical reports generated by the Complex Information Processing (CIP) Project, an effort begun under RAND Corporation-Carnegie Institute of Technology cooperation, and continued under the aegis of Carnegie Mellon University. Simon, Allen Newell, and other CIT/CMU faculty and students are prominent among the authors. The University Archives' Allen Newell Collection contains another assortment of CIP technical reports. The series contains nearly two boxes of administrative documents, correspondence, and course materials from the formative years of CIT's Graduate School of Industrial Administration (GSIA), together with funding and administrative documents from the Carnegie Mellon years of GSIA. One box contains technical reports referenced in GSIA dean (and later CMU president) Richard M. Cyert's book with J. G. Marsh, The Behavioral Theory of the Firm (1963). Simon describes his role in the preliminary research toward that work in Models of My Life. The series occupies 10 boxes (10.25 cu. ft.).
