The reason we saved thousands of science offprints from an uncertain fate are embodied in Stephen Hawking's recent statement
Anyone, anywhere in the world should have free, unhindered access to not just my research, but to the research of every great and inquiring mind across the spectrum of human understanding," Stephen hawking. While we are forced by commerce to offer these documents for sale it's our hope they will end up in institutional collections to be saved and shared. The alternative for the tens of thousands of articles we have would have been the landfill. No one else seemed willing to take on this monumental project.
Scientific Reprint Collections Conference American Philosophical Society 1984 with comments by Will Provine and others
. When we acquired a sea container of offprints from Will Provine in mid-2013, it contained offprints collected by early pioneers in the field of Genetics including: Edmund B. Wilson, Theodor Boveri, E. M East, Correns, Sewall Wright, and many others. Cloning researcher Robert H. Foote also of Cornell, L.C.Dunn and many others. Provine threw a wide net and collected reprints (offprints) from many important researchers. I enjoyed our phone and email discussions about Sewall Wright, Barbara McClintock, and other important folks he had interacted with over the years. It was wonderful to read his words from the 1984 conference sent to me by a thoughtful collector. Rhett Moran can be viewed via pdf
