Biography

Jordan J. Baruch, 1923-2011, was born in New York. He graduated from James Madison High School in Brooklyn in 1940 and attended Brooklyn College before enlisting in the US Army. After completing the Army Specialized Training Program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), he joined the Army Signal Corps. He served in both Asia and Europe, where he fought in the Battle of the Bulge, and was honorably discharged in 1946. Upon his return to the US he attended MIT, where he earned both the SB and SM in Electrical Engineering in 1948. He received the ScD in Electrical Engineering from MIT in 1950. He also taught as an assistant professor in the Electrical Engineering department at MIT in the 1950s, and went on to teach at the Harvard Business School (1971-1974), the Thayer School of Engineering and the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College (1974-1977), and the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) at Johns Hopkins University (early 1990s).

After receiving his doctorate from MIT, Baruch joined his advisor, Leo Beranek, at the consulting firm Bolt, Beranek and Newman (BBN). He worked there as a partner and vice president until 1966, and served as a director from 1968 to 1977. While at BBN, Baruch consulted with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) on several medical instrumentation projects, and he launched an NIH-funded project with Massachusetts General Hospital to bring computer automation to hospitals. Baruch left BBN in 1966 to become general manager of MEDINET, a department of General Electric that focused on developing computer time-share language and hardware for hospital automation. From 1968 to 1970, Baruch served as president of the EDUCOM consortium, and in the 1960s and 1970s he was part of Boston Broadcasters, Inc., the organization that ran WCVB (Channel 5) in Boston. In the 1950s and 1960s Baruch developed many inventions, including loudspeaker enclosures and devices to absorb sound. Altogether he held 12 patents.

Jordan Baruch became the Assistant Secretary for Science and Technology (this title later changed to Assistant Secretary for Productivity, Technology and Innovation) in the US Department of Commerce in 1977, at the start of Jimmy Carter's presidential term. During Baruch's time in government, he completed the Domestic Policy Review on Industrial Innovation (DPR), an advisory document on strategies for improving the country's innovation and trade, and helped the US forge business relationships with the People's Republic of China, among other accomplishments. He joined a delegation from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) on a trip to China in 1977, where he toured factories and saw first-hand the state of the country's industry. During a visit of the US Secretary of Commerce to China in 1979, this knowledge of China's industrial situation led Baruch to suggest the idea of the first management education program in China. In 1980, under Baruch's guidance, the National Center for Industrial Science and Technology Management Development (NCISTMD) was established in Dalian, China. Baruch taught at the NCISTMD in 1984, and continued to be involved with the center into the 1990s.

After Baruch left government service in 1981, he started the consulting firm Jordan Baruch Associates, Inc., and continued to be heavily involved in international affairs as well as matters of science, technology, and innovation. Baruch was invited to speak on these topics at conferences and symposia around the world, and appeared before numerous committees of the US Senate and House of Representatives to give statements on various bills and policies. He was also invited to share his expertise during peace talks in the Middle East.

Israel and the Jewish faith were important to Baruch, which is evidenced by his many connections with Israel throughout his life. He established the Israel-US Binational Industrial Research and Development (BIRD) Foundation and founded both the Trans-Atlantic Institute of the American Jewish Committee and the Washington, DC chapter of the American Associates, Ben-Gurion University (AABGU). He was also a member of the Israel Oceanic and Limnological Research Foundation, the National Board of Governors of the American Jewish Committee, and an active member and former president of the Adas Israel Congregation in Washington, DC.

Baruch was also a prolific writer with many articles and book chapters to his name. The wide range of topics he wrote about show his multitude of interests, including acoustics, medical instrumentation, computer automation, television broadcasting, foreign trade, decision analysis, technological change and innovation, economics, management, agriculture, and sustainable energy. In 1997 he co-authored a book titled Innovation Explosion with James Brian Quinn and Karen Ann Zien.

Baruch was elected to the National Academy of Engineers (NAE) in 1974 and became an NAE Fellow and Senior Scholar in 2001. In 1997 he joined the Board of Regents of the National Library of Medicine. He was also a fellow of the Acoustical Society of America, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the IEEE, and the New York Academy of Science. He won the prestigious Arthur M. Bueche Award from NAE in 2007, for his "promotion of innovation and management of science and technology nationally and internationally, thereby enhancing the economy of the U.S. and developing nations" ( "Dr. Jordan J. Baruch,"  NAE Website, accessed December 30, 2014, http://www.nae.edu/55363.aspx).

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The Jordan J. Baruch papers consist primarily of writings and presentations by Baruch, as well as correspondence. While these materials comprise the bulk of the collection, the papers also include course notes, reports, meeting agendas and minutes, photographs, clippings, background material, and some ephemera. The collection spans the years 1946 to 2011, with the bulk of the material dating from the 1970s and 1980s.

The materials contained in this collection cover a wide variety of topics including industrial and technological innovation, the intersection of engineering and business management, computer automation in hospitals, Baruch's government service, and the development of one of the earliest academic and business partnerships between the US and China after the two countries normalized relations beginning in 1972. The papers also include drafts of Baruch's unpublished memoir, which lend context to the rest of the materials in the collection.

Series 1. Biographical and Personal Information contains drafts and outlines of Baruch's memoir, along with resumes, photographs, publication lists, mementos, professional certifications, a scrapbook, and "people" files relating to personal and professional contacts Baruch made throughout his life.

Series 2. Chronological Files contains correspondence files. The bulk of this material dates from 1977 to 1981, when Baruch served as Assistant Secretary for Productivity, Technology and Innovation in the US Department of Commerce. Other correspondence in this series deals with Baruch's time working with Bolt, Beranek and Newman (BBN), MEDINET/General Electric, and EDUCOM; his time teaching at Harvard, Dartmouth, and Johns Hopkins; his years working as a consultant with the Jordan Baruch Associates, Inc.; and his work in China. Also included in this series are several years' worth of weekly planners and some subject files.

Series 3. Course Notes consists of course notes and materials from Baruch’s time teaching at the Harvard Business School (1971-1974), the Thayer School of Engineering and the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College (1974-1977), and the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) at Johns Hopkins University (early 1990s).

Series 4. Government Work Files contains some of the work Baruch completed during his tenure as Assistant Secretary for Productivity, Technology and Innovation in the US Department of Commerce (1977-1981). The materials in this series mainly focus on Baruch's work on the Domestic Policy Review on Industrial Innovation (DPR), which was an advisory document for President Jimmy Carter.

Series 5. Testimonies consists of statements and testimonies given by Baruch at hearings before committees of the US Senate and House of Representatives. These testimonies dealt with a wide range of topics including technological and industrial innovation, the United States' international competitiveness in industry, patent and trademark laws, and the administration of government departments that Baruch oversaw in his role as Assistant Secretary for Productivity, Technology and Innovation. The testimonies in this series provide very detailed information on policies and thought about technology and innovation in the 1970s and 1980s.

Series 6. International Work Files contains material related to Baruch's international work and travels, both during his time in the Department of Commerce and as a consultant. The materials in this series cover Baruch's work on technological innovation in developing countries, his help establishing institutes for science and technology management, his founding of the Israel-US Binational Industrial Research and Development (BIRD) Foundation, and his work with the Board on Science and Technology for International Development's (BOSTID), Science and Technology for Industrial Development (STAID) project. These files include background documents from the US Department of State, travel itineraries, correspondence, meeting agendas, reports, proposals, and publications.

Series 7. China Files covers Baruch's travels to and work in the People's Republic of China. Baruch traveled to China in 1977 with a delegation from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), where he visited factories and toured cultural sites. The knowledge he gained from that trip gave him an understanding that proved helpful during the US Secretary of Commerce's visit to China in 1979, when a a protocol to promote interchange concerning the management of science and technology matters between the US and China was signed. This trip laid the groundwork for the establishment of the National Center for Industrial Science and Technology Management Development (NCISTMD) in 1980, of which Baruch had a major part. The center was one of the early academic and business partnerships between the US and China, at a time when friendly relations between the two countries were still quite new; President Nixon's diplomatic visit with Chairman Mao Zedong had just taken place in 1972. Baruch was involved with the NCISTMD for several years and returned to China a few more times. Materials in this series include correspondence, notebooks, proposals, program plans, clippings, writings, course notes, recordings of lectures, photographs, and souvenirs.

Series 8. Writings and Presentations contains articles, case studies, working papers, grant proposals, speech transcripts and outlines, and book chapters by Baruch, as well as drafts, notes, correspondence, background material, his doctoral thesis, and materials from conferences and symposia that he attended and participated in. Boxes 19 through 22 of this series contain drafts, outlines, notes, and references dealing with the topic of innovation, and these files culminate with a copy of Baruch's 1997 book, Innovation Explosion, which was co-authored with James Brian Quinn and Karen Ann Zien.

Collection Inventory

 Series 1. Biographical and Personal Information 1946-2007   2.75 cubic feet (8 manuscript boxes, 1 half manuscript box)

Scope and Contents of the Series

Series 1 of the Jordan J. Baruch papers consists of biographical and personal materials of Jordan Baruch. Files in this series say a great deal about Baruch, whether in the form of formal biographies, photographs, and resumes, or that of ancillary materials such as news clippings about organizations he was involved with, awards he was granted, or lists of people he knew and worked with.

In 2003 Baruch began working on his memoir. Though incomplete, a draft can be found in box 1 along with outlines, notes, and background material organized into folders labeled “bio assembly." Topics covered in the draft include his early studies and meeting his wife, Rhoda; his career at Bolt, Beranek and Newman (BBN) and his work with the National Institutes of Health; his time teaching at the Harvard Business School and at Dartmouth College; and his experiences working in the US Department of Commerce. One section, titled “Dilly Beans and Two Jacks,” describes how Baruch realized his personal mission of hospital automation, a topic heavily covered in his early publications (see boxes 2 through 4 of Series 8, Writings and Presentations).

The memoir draft also covers Baruch's experiences in China from 1977 to the late 1980s. An identical copy of this section, titled “Intro to China,” is located in box 1 of Series 7 (China Files). It is housed separately because it was filed with Baruch’s “China files." Baruch’s anecdotes in this portion of his memoir lend excellent context to the rest of the materials in Series 7.

Box 2 contains two biographies of Baruch, one written in 1957 in honor of his being named an Outstanding Young Electrical Engineer of 1956, and the other a memorial tribute written by his dissertation advisor and colleague Leo Beranek.

Several folders of mementos can be found in boxes 2 and 3, with contents ranging from Chinese souvenirs to a congressional bill signed by former US senator and astronaut John Glenn to a review of a 1988 television appearance. Four folders of scrapbook material contain personal photographs as well as mementos from some of the notable areas of Baruch’s work and personal life. Highlighted in the scrapbook are photographs of a Department of Commerce meeting and a Boston Broadcasters, Inc. party, as well as files dealing with Baruch's involvements with China, the Franklin Pierce Law School, and the Israel-US Binational Industrial Research and Development (BIRD) Foundation.

Establishing the BIRD Foundation was only one of the many ways in which Baruch was involved in supporting both Israel and Jewish communities. He also founded the Trans-Atlantic Institute of the American Jewish Committee and the Washington, DC chapter of the American Associates, Ben-Gurion University (AABGU). He was a member of the Israel Oceanic and Limnological Research Foundation, the National Board of Governors of the American Jewish Committee, and an active member and former president of the Adas Israel Congregation in Washington, DC. Materials related to his work with BIRD, Adas Israel, and AABGU can be found in box 4. Additional materials involving his work with Israel can be found in boxes 4 through 6 of Series 6 (International Work Files), including more about BIRD, the United States-Israel Science and Technology Commission (USISTC), and his involvement in Middle Eastern peace talks. Three of Baruch's divrei Torah, sermons interpreting scripture that he gave during services at Adas Israel, are located in box 14 of Series 8 (Writings and Presentations). Files documenting his work on the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC, including correspondence with Elie Wiesel, are included in his “bio assembly papers” in box 1.

Boxes 3 and 4 of this series contain materials relating to Baruch's professional life. Professional certifications, correspondence, clippings, consulting files, and awards are included, along with photographs of MEDINET, a department of General Electric of which Baruch was general manager, and a guestbook from when he left government service.

Boxes 5 through 9 contain Baruch's "people" files - professional and personal contacts that Baruch accumulated throughout his life. These files consist of contact lists, resumes, letters of recommendation, and correspondence, and the vast variety of people and places represented shows the extensiveness of Baruch’s interests and involvements around the world.

 Series 2. Chronological Files 1965-1999   7.0 cubic feet (21 manuscript boxes)

Scope and Contents of the Series

Series 2 of the Jordan J. Baruch papers contains Baruch's chronological correspondence files. In addition to correspondence, the files also consist of memos, notes, and background material.

The files in boxes 1 to 3 date from 1965 to 1977, and consist mostly of professional correspondence from Baruch's work at Bolt, Beranek and Newman (BBN); MEDINET and General Electric; and EDUCOM; as well as his time teaching at Harvard and Dartmouth. Major topics covered include committee work and conference appearances, the Public Broadcasting Corporation, professional advice to others, and consulting about computing and medical equipment. The correspondence in these files shows how wide an impact Baruch's work had on hospital automation; hospitals all over New England, the United States, and Europe were in contact with him about using computers to automate their records. (See box 2 of Series 6, International Work Files, for more material on Baruch's international work with hospital automation.) The last files in box 3, from 1977, show the transition of Baruch's career from professor to government official.

Boxes 3 to 16 contain the bulk of material in this series. These files date from 1977 to 1981, when Baruch was Assistant Secretary for Productivity, Technology and Innovation in the US Department of Commerce, and the majority of correspondence during these years relates to his work in that capacity. (See Series 4 for more material about Baruch's government work.)

Boxes 17 to 19 are largely correspondence to and from Jordan Baruch Associates, Inc., Baruch's consulting firm. A few subject files are mixed in as well, including "JB China" (box 17) which documents the Baruches' 1984 trip to China to teach at the National Center for Industrial Science and Technology Management Development (NCISTMD) at Dalian; the Jordan Baruch Associates' work with the AT&T Executive Development Program in 1985; and the firm's consulting work with Planned Parenthood in 1986.

Two additional sets of chronological files were part of a second accession of materials, and have been kept separately - not interfiled with the others - because it appears that Baruch kept them separately. The first set of files, in box 20, dates from 1979 to 1999 and consists of a mix of personal correspondence, professional correspondence, weekly planners, and calendars. The folder labeled "1979" contains information regarding a government proposal, "Industrial Development and Federal Policy on Technological Innovation." The second set of files, in box 21, date from 1969 to 1994 and contain speech notes, security clearances, files about Baruch's time teaching at Dartmouth College and Johns Hopkins University, materials relating to his appointment to the Department of Commerce, and both personal and professional correspondence.

 Series 3. Course Notes 1969-1990  (Bulk, 1971-1976)   0.6 cubic feet (2 manuscript boxes)

Scope and Contents of the Series

Series 3 of the Jordan J. Baruch papers consists of course notes and materials for courses taught by Baruch at the Harvard Business School (1971-1974), the Thayer School of Engineering and the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College (1974-1977), and the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) at Johns Hopkins University (early 1990s). Course syllabi, outlines, case studies, and reading lists – as well as some correspondence regarding curricula and syllabi – are included for the following courses: Management of Technological Innovation (Harvard), Production and Operations Management (Harvard), Management of Technological Change (Dartmouth), ES21 - Introduction to Engineering (Dartmouth), and Science and Technological Change in the Third World (Johns Hopkins). Additional correspondence about these courses and Baruch's time teaching can be found in Series 2 (Chronological Files).

A folder titled "Tech Innovation," which contains articles about various aspects of technological innovation, can be found in box 2. This material appears to have been used by Baruch both as teaching material (it contained an empty folder titled "Other Readings") as well as background material for his book on innovation (see boxes 19-22 of Series 8, Writings and Presentations). It also appears that the folder titled "Reprints, bibliographies" in box 1 was used for both teaching and researching his book as well.

In addition to Harvard, Dartmouth, and Johns Hopkins, Baruch also taught at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) from 1950 to 1970. He taught courses in circuit theory, acoustics, energy conversion, servo-mechanisms, and instrumentation. No course notes from Baruch's tenure at MIT are included in this collection.

 Series 4. Government Work Files 1977-1979   0.6 cubic feet (2 manuscript boxes)

Scope and Contents of the Series

Series 4 of the Jordan J. Baruch papers contains some of the work Baruch completed during his tenure as Assistant Secretary for Productivity, Technology and Innovation in the US Department of Commerce (1977-1981). One of his major accomplishments during this time was the Domestic Policy Review on Industrial Innovation (DPR), an advisory document for President Jimmy Carter, which was completed in October 1979.

The advisory document was created to address issues about US policy in the areas of industry and innovation. The review involved about 30 federal departments and agencies as well as countless academics, industry representatives, and the public. Copies of the final DPR are included in this series, as well as an early draft, Baruch's speech to the Public Interest Group at the start of the project, a history of the project that Baruch compiled, correspondence from President Carter thanking Baruch for his work, and copies of articles about the DPR.

Also included in this series are the final report of the Advisory Committee on Industrial Innovation, of which Baruch was part, as well as a directory and materials relating to the United Nations Conference on Science and Technology for Development. This series also contains a publication about technological innovation that was produced by the Department of Commerce during Lyndon Johnson's presidency. Though Baruch did not work on this report, he likely used it as a reference during his own work in the Department.

Further work of Baruch during his time in government can be found in Series 2 (Chronological Files), Series 5 (Testimonies), and Series 8 (Writings and Publications).

 Series 5. Testimonies 1977-1987   1.0 cubic feet (3 manuscript boxes)

Scope and Contents of the Series

Series 5 of the Jordan J. Baruch papers consists of testimonies given by Baruch at hearings before committees of the US Senate and House of Representatives. Most folders contain Baruch's written testimonies, but some also contain Government Printing Office copies of the hearings that include transcripts of both his spoken statements and the subsequent question and answer sessions with committee members. Some folders also include correspondence with senators and congressmen regarding bills that Baruch helped put into motion. All files in this series are arranged chronologically.

The majority of testimonies in this series were given during Baruch's tenure as Assistant Secretary for Productivity, Technology and Innovation in the Department of Commerce (1977-1981), and deal mainly with his work in that role. Topics include technological and industrial innovation; the National Bureau of Standards; Institutional Patent Agreements (IPAs); the Domestic Policy Review on Industrial Innovation (DPR) mandated by President Jimmy Carter in 1979; the improvement of the United States' international competitiveness in industry; budget requests for the Department of Commerce; patent and trademark laws; science agreements between the United States and the People's Republic of China; improving cooperation among government, industry, and academia in order to advance US innovation; and the establishment of the Office of Productivity, Technology, and Innovation (OPTI), which replaced Baruch's original Office of Science and Technology.

After Baruch left the Department of Commerce at the end of President Carter's term, he continued to provide testimonies before Senate and House committees. In his new role as consultant to industry in the management of technological innovation, he provided expertise on such matters as the National Burearu of Standards, how to fix the trade deficit, technology education, and the proposed creation of a Department of International Trade and Industry.

 Series 6. International Work Files 1974-1998   2.0 cubic feet (6 manuscript boxes)

Scope and Contents of the Series

Series 6 of the Jordan J. Baruch papers contains material related to Baruch's international work and travels. He was heavily involved in international affairs, both during his time in the US Department of Commerce and as a consultant. Most of the materials in this series are arranged by country, in the order that Baruch had them filed. Additional related materials were added at the end.

Approximately half of the materials in this series relate to Baruch's international work during his time as Assistant Secretary for Productivity, Technology and Innovation in the Department of Commerce (1977-1981). In this role, Baruch traveled to several countries in order to assess the biggest problems regarding technological and industrial development there, and then worked with government officials and industry leaders to determine solutions. In this regard, Baruch worked with the governments of Nigeria, Kenya, Senegal, Zimbabwe, Greece, Bulgaria, and Jordan. Files relating to his work in these countries contain briefing books from the US Department of State, action plans, memoranda of intent, trip notes, travel itineraries, and background information about each country.

In addition to his work in developing nations, Baruch also served as an adviser for the US delegation to the United Nations Conference on Science and Technology for Development (UNCSTD) in Vienna. Baruch also attended the Japan-US Meeting on Research Cooperation in Science and Technology in 1979, and took part in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Ad Hoc Group on Innovation, which met in Paris in 1980. Materials related to these events consist of correspondence, meeting agendas, reports, and background material.

Baruch's international work continued after his time in government, and the second bulk of materials in this series relate to his work as a consultant. He was in high demand to consult on matters of technological innovation, technonlogy education, and economic cooperation. Shortly after leaving his government post, he returned to Jordan to help establish the International Institute for Advanced Management (see box 1 of Series 1, Biographical and Personal Information, for a related anecdote in Baruch's memoir draft), and returned again in 1986 to consult for the International Science and Technology Institute.

Baruch was also heavily involved with the National Academies Board on Science and Technology for International Development (BOSTID), especially with its Science and Technology for Industrial Development (STAID) project. BOSTID conducted programs with and for developing nations on behalf of the National Research Council's Office of International Affairs, which served the international interests of the National Academy of Science (NAS), the National Academy of Engineering (NAE), and the Institute of Medicine. Much of Baruch's work with BOSTID was centered in Indonesia, and the related files consist of presentations, meeting agendas, reports, correspondence, travel information, and briefings about NAS activities in various countries.

In terms of economic cooperation, Baruch was instrumental in the founding of the Israel-US Binational Industrial Research and Development (BIRD) Foundation, established by the US and Israeli governments to support industrial research and development cooperation between the two countries. As a result of the BIRD Foundation's successes, Baruch was asked to consult in India on a project cosponsored by the US Agency for International Development (AID), the Department of Commerce, and the Department of the Treasury. This project aimed to establish a Binational Foundation for Industrial Technology with India, modeled on the BIRD Foundation. Files related to BIRD and the India project include reports, proposals, publications, memoranda, meeting agendas, and correspondence.

As a result of his expertise on economic cooperation, Baruch was asked to take part in peace talks in the Middle East. In 1986, the Sadat Peace Foundation contacted Baruch and invited him to join their peace efforts. He attended two conferences on economics and peacemaking, and gave a presentation on the private sector's role in economic cooperation. In 1992, Baruch returned once again to Jordan to take part in the Israeli-Jordanian peace talks. Correspondence, speech notes, travel information, and background material relating to these peacemaking efforts can be found in box 5.

Also included in this series are contacts Baruch made abroad during his work with hospital automation in the 1960s, as well as information about symposia he attended in Japan and Austria.

 Series 7. China Files 1976-2006   3.03 cubic feet (5 manuscript boxes, 2 cassette boxes, 2 flat boxes)

Scope and Contents of the Series

Series 7 of the Jordan J. Baruch papers deals with Baruch's travels to and work in the People's Republic of China beginning in 1976, soon after the US-China relationship was re-started in 1972. Boxes 1 and 2 contain Baruch’s “China file,” which is organized chronologically. Much of these materials appear to be Baruch’s working files during his tenure as Assistant Secretary for Productivity, Technology and Innovation in the US Department of Commerce, as many files are organized in the same manner as his international work files (see Series 6). The original order of this set of materials was maintained as best as possible.

Baruch’s work in China was set in motion in 1976 when he was invited to be part of a delegation from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) that would travel to China as part of an exchange between the IEEE and the Chinese Electronics Society (CES). This exchange program was established in order to educate each organization about the state of electronics in the other’s country, as well as to forge relationships that would foster cultural understanding. Herb Sherman, of the Harvard School of Public Health, led the delegation in the fall of 1977, and the group toured industrial sites as well as cultural points of interest. Correspondence, articles, newsletters, and reports from this trip can be found in box 1, along with materials pertaining to the Chinese Electrical Society’s 1978 exchange visit to the US. Baruch also assembled an album of photographs from this trip, and this album can be found in box 8.

In May of 1979, as Assistant Secretary for Science and Technology, Baruch returned to China as part of a delegation accompanying Juanita Kreps, US Secretary of Commerce. During this trip, Kreps and China's Vice Premier Fang Yi, the Chairman of the State Science and Technology Commission, signed a protocol to promote interchange concerning the management of science and technology matters. Files from this trip include Kreps's schedule book, an annex to the protocol, and a trip diary, all located in box 1. Bound copies of the protocol are located in box 9.

It was after this trip, in December 1979, during discussions with a Chinese delegation about the newly signed US-China Science and Technology Agreement, that Baruch suggested the idea of a mangagement education program in China. With the support of Vice Premier Kang Shi’en, the Chairman of State Economic Commission, and Vice Premier Fang Yi, the Department of Commerce drafted a plan, and in April 1980 the Chinese government approved the establishment of the National Center for Industrial Science and Technology Management Development (NCISTMD) in Dalian, the first in China. Memoranda regarding these discussions, correspondence, proposals, program plans, articles, and meeting materials can be found in boxes 1 and 5.

As the National Center for Industrial Science and Technology Management Development was jointly funded by the governments of China and the US, the Department of Commerce continued to be involved in the running of the school, including drafting teaching plans and finding faculty to teach there. Faculty at the center included professors from universities all over the US (including Jerome Rothenberg from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology) as well as industry leaders and representatives from the Department of Commerce and National Bureau of Standards. In 1984 Baruch returned to China to teach a course on operations management and to lead the center’s first Advanced Management Program. Baruch served on the NCISTMD Advisory Board in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and continued to consult on industrial management education in China throughout the 1990s. Baruch's course notes, tapes and transcripts of lectures, notebooks, correspondence, articles, meeting agendas, notes, and reports are located in boxes 2 through 7.

Also included in this series are articles and correspondence relating to various aspects of the NCISTMD and management education in China; Baruch's international work files for China; background information; travel itineraries and souvenirs; 40th anniversary gifts to the Baruches from students and colleagues at the NCISTMD; the ten-year anniversary booklet for NCISTMD which includes many photographs; and a draft of the introduction to the China portion of Baruch's memoir, which gives a good overview of all his work in China in his own words.

 Series 8. Writings and Presentations 1950-2008   7.3 cubic feet (21 manuscript boxes, 1 half-manuscript box, 1 cassette box)

Scope and Contents of the Series

Series 8 of the Jordan J. Baruch papers consists of writings and presentations by Baruch, arranged chronologically.

The writings include articles, case studies, working papers, grant proposals, Baruch's doctoral thesis, and book chapters, as well as drafts, notes, and background material. Writings dating from 1950 to the early 1970s deal mostly with Baruch’s inventions, especially his loudspeakers, and his work with computers and hospital automation. Drafts for a book about technological change can be found in boxes 5 through 7; it appears that Baruch was working on this book before being appointed Assistant Secretary of Science and Technology by President Jimmy Carter. No further drafts of this book appear during or after Baruch’s time in government.

Presentations and speeches given by Baruch are also included in this series, as well as materials from conferences, seminars, and symposia that he spoke at or attended. Some presentation files contain transcripts of Baruch’s speeches, while most contain notes, background material, and correspondence. Invitations to events he did not attend and information about events that were canceled are also present in this series in order to show how high in demand Baruch’s presence was.

Boxes 19 through 22 contain drafts, outlines, notes, and references dealing with the topic of innovation. These files, which began in the mid-1980s, culminate with a copy of Baruch's 1997 book, Innovation Explosion, which was co-authored with James Brian Quinn and Karen Ann Zien. Also included in these boxes is correspondence among Baruch, Quinn, and Zien regarding the book.

In the 2000s, Baruch became chairman of the International Nuclear Safety Group and began working on articles about nuclear safety and other types of energy that would be safe and sustainable. Box 18 contains his research, correspondence, notes, and articles on this topic.

Additional articles and speeches by Baruch are located in Series 1 (Biographical Materials), as they had been filed separately by Baruch as part of his "bio assembly." Testimonies, both written and spoken, given by Baruch before committees of the US Senate and House of Representatives, were also filed separately by Baruch and are located in Series 5 (Testimonies). Additional case studies and lecture transcripts may be found in Series 3 (Course Notes), and lecture recordings and transcripts from the course Baruch taught at the National Center for Industrial Science and Technology Management Development at Dalian, China may be found in Series 7 (China files).
