Karl Wolfgang Böer is the Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Physics and Solar Energy at the University of Delaware.

Böer also created SES Inc., a subsidiary of Shell Oil, and was its chairman and CEO until 1976 and its chief scientist until 1981. This collection is a supplement to the Karl Wolfgang Böer papers. The materials in this collection include a significant number of Böer’s published papers and his corresponding notes, research, and scientific calculations. Other materials include progress reports on the “Solar One” project; International Solar Energy Society materials including articles of incorporation, by-laws, budgets, and memoranda for the American section of the society; Institute for Energy Conversion research proposals; awards bestowed in Böer’s name; correspondence; and teaching materials from Böer’s professorship at the University of Delaware. The collection also includes presentation slide sets on solar energy issues, and educational film reels. Personal material in the collection includes Böer’s autobiographical work on his experience in Germany from 1945 to 1950, as well as a biography compiled from Böer’s remembrances.
