Scope and Contents

From the Collection:

The Papers of James R. Meiman consists of documents dated 1951 to 2012. The collection consists primarily of Meiman's professional work as a watershed scientist, professor, and administrator at Colorado State University. The largest amount of material concerns snow hydrology. This includes research notes and reports for studies conducted at Pingree Park (now, CSU's Mountain Campus) on the Little South Poudre Watershed as well as reports and publications on U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) projects, including first stage contract CSU-14-06-D-5218, "Watershed Management Practices Affecting Water Supplies on Irrigation Projects" (1968), and second stage contract CSU-14-06-D-6598-5, "Management of Colorado Mountain Lands for Increasing Water Yields" (1973). Meiman's notes for the snow hydrology course he taught at CSU, WS 750 (also called WS 240, 250, and 716), are also present. The collection also contains materials related to CSU's Watershed Science Department and its history. These include PowerPoint presentations, a video, and several documents that were part of the department's fiftieth anniversary celebration, as well as studies and publications by graduates of the Watershed Science program. Finally, a significant number of folders reflect Meiman's interest in interdisciplinary research and international development. These materials include both research and conference proceedings, programs and reports from the ASEAN-US Watershed Project roving lecture series, and reports on the East Anatolia Watershed Rehabilitation Project (1994-1998). Materials in this collection include course materials, correspondence, reports and publications, slides, photographs, CDs, and two 8mm video cassettes.
