Joe K. Neel Papers, 1941-1989
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description: The Joe K. Neel Papers arrived at the Department in 13 boxes. Documents that pertained to Neel's research were contained in seven boxes grouped by project. Two of the other six boxes contained subject files that were arranged alphabetically. Two other boxes contained correspondence. One of these included correspondence that Neel had arranged by correspondent or by topic, as well as other letters that were arranged chronologically. Neel's arrangement of this box was maintained during processing. A second box of correspondence pertained only to Neel's graduate students. These files were arranged alphabetically by student and transcript materials were removed and shredded. Another box contained the manuscript copy of Neel's book on the Turtle River, A Northern Prairie Stream. Finally, one box contained documents related to Science Institutes held at UND and elsewhere between 1960 and 1964. Because these documents pre-dated Neel's tenure at UND and were related to Professor Kannowski, this box was separated from the Neel Papers and deposited into the Paul B. Kannowski Papers, OGLMC 683 (94-1971).
