Historical NoteReturn to Top

Chih H. Wang was Professor of Chemistry, Director of the Radiation Center, and Head of the Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering at Oregon State University. He was responsible for the growth of nuclear science research on the Oregon State University campus and the creation of the OSU Radiation Center.

Wang was born in 1917 in Shanghai, China. He attended the National University of Shandong where he earned his B.S. in chemistry. Wang's studies and employment were disrupted by the Second Sino-Japanese War and later World War II but, beginning in 1938, Wang found work as a chemistry instructor at West China Union University. In 1945, Wang immigrated to the United States where he enrolled at Oregon State College. There, he earned his Ph.D. in organic chemistry. In 1950, Wang joined the OSU Chemistry Department as an instructor, where he focused on research in biochemistry, plant physiology, microbiology, and radiation biology. As a result of his aggressive research agenda, Wang earned his full professorship. Wang's use of radioisotopes in research resulted in a push for improved radiation research facilities on the OSU campus. In 1958, Wang drafted the first of three proposals requesting funds to build a radiation center at OSU. Funding was granted in 1960 and construction of the facility began in 1962. The TRIGA reactor (OSTR) was installed and activated in the OSU Radiation Center in 1967. Wang was named Director of the Radiation Center and Head of the Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering--a position he filled until his retirement in 1984.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The Chih H. Wang Papers consist of materials generated and assembled by Wang, a faculty member of the OSU Chemistry Department, Head of the OSU Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering, and Director of the OSU Radiation Center, between 1947 and 1984. The collection includes professional correspondence with researchers, corporate partners, colleagues in Taiwan, and OSU administrators. The collection also includes records of research conducted by the OSU Chemistry Department and at the OSU Radiation Center in cooperation with the Atomic Energy Commission, the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Navy, Exxon, DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency), the U.S. Air Force, and others; correspondence and administrative files from workshops, conferences, and training programs including the Academic Year Institute in Nuclear Science and a multi-year training program for employees of the Taiwan Power Company (TaiPower); and records of the founding, growth, and operation of the OSU Radiation Center.

The collection also includes abstracts and offprints of publications by Wang in the fields of chemistry, biochemistry, and radiation sciences and includes research into the biochemistry of microorganisms, the effects of inorganic compounds of biological systems, the development of nuclear power, and nuclear technology instruction. Many of these publications were co-authored with other Oregon State University faculty, including Bert E. Christensen, Vernon H. Cheldelin, Donald J. Reed, and Frank N. Dost. Additionally, the collection contains subject files assembled by Wang relating to chemistry and biochemistry, radiation sciences, and nuclear power policy and legislation.
