Joseph G. Morse Collection

Western Collection: Morse, J. (Box)

Biographical Note

A teacher and scholar of inorganic chemistry, specializing in the study of phosphorus and phosphorus family elements, and of the pedagogy of university chemistry and science education, Joseph G. Morse was born on October 16, 1939, in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He was educated at South Dakota State College of Agriculture & Mechanical Arts (B.S. Chemistry, 1961) and the University of Michigan (M.S. Chemistry, 1963; PhD, 1967). His doctoral dissertation was entitled Dipole Moments of Some Trivalent Phosphorus Systems. During 1965-66, Dr. Morse was a Lecturer in chemistry at the University of Michigan. Following active military duty served 1966-68, in part at the U. S. Army Ballistic Research Laboratory at the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland, Dr. Morse was appointed to the faculty of the department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Utah State University, where he also served as Director of the University Honors Program from 1986-1993 and as Associate Director of the Liberal Arts & Sciences Program from 1989-1993. During 1980-81, he served as Visiting Associate Professor at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. In 1993, Dr. Morse joined the faculty of the department of Chemistry at Western Washington University in Bellingham, where he currently holds the rank of Professor. He served as Western's Director of Science Education from 1996-2000. Dr. Morse's research interests include the coordination chemistry of phosphorus; ligand influence on metal complex chemistry; the effect of complexation on the chemistry of phosphorus ligands; and the improvement of the teaching of university chemistry and of science generally.

Scope and Content Note

The collection consists of off-prints and photocopies of articles, chapters, and other published contributions in the field of inorganic chemistry, with an emphasis on the study of phosphorus compounds, and copies of Dr. Morse's curriculum vita. The items were published 1966-2002.

Notes on Arrangement

The collection is organized into sequentially numbered folders housed in one box. Within each folder, items are ordered chronologically  by date of publication, sub-arranged alphabetically by item title when items share a common publication date. Folders 1 contains undated curriculum vitae prepared by Dr. Morse (1995? and 1999?). Folder 2 contains items authored solely by Dr. Morse. Folder 3 contains items authored by Dr. Morse with frequent collaborator Karen W. Morse, some also co-authored with others. Folder 4 contains items authored by Dr. Morse in collaboration with others. The arrangement is by Special Collections.

Provenance

The collection is acquired and assembled by Special Collections on behalf of Joseph G. Morse for The Western Collection.
