Part of Robert E. Shank Papers
This series contains mainly correspondence on administrative issues from a variety of organizations. The files include conference and seminar information, including drafts of presentations RES gave at the meetings, newsletters, reprints of proceedings, journal articles, and other news sources. Of particular interest is the material generated as a consequence of his association with the American Institute of Baking. RES was consulted by the Ward Baking Company as they lobbied for Missouri state approval of one of their products, Tip-top Protein Bread. In his oral history (Series 30) RES comments on the role that scientists have in relation to industry and government regulatory oversight.
