The Robert F. Stoops Papers, 1946-1950, 1963, contain class notes, assignments, tests, and textbooks from Stoops's time as an undergraduate ceramic engineering major at North Carolina State College of Agriculture and Engineering (later North Carolina State University), as well a lab report written by one of Stoops's students at N.C. State.

Robert F. Stoops (1921-2005) received his B.A. in ceramic engineering from N.C. State and his M.A. and Ph.D. in ceramic engineering from Ohio State University. He joined the faculty at N.C. State in 1958 and was appointed director of engineering research in 1968. He also served as the director of the N.C. State Minerals Research Laboratory.

Biographical/historical note

Robert F. Stoops (1921-2005) was born and raised in West Virginia. He served in the United States Army during World War II and spent two and a half years as head of the cryptographic section in China Theater Headquarters. He received his B.A. in ceramic engineering from N.C. State in 1949, graduating magna cum laude, and then earned his M.A. and Ph.D. in ceramic engineering from Ohio State University.

Stoops worked in industry for several years before he joined the faculty of the Dept. of Engineering Research at N.C. State in 1958. He was appointed director of engineering research in 1968. He also served as the director of the N.C. State Minerals Research Laboratory. Stoops spent twenty-seven years working and teaching at the university.

In addition to his teaching and administrative duties at N.C. State, Stoops published many research articles. He was named a Fellow of the American Institute of Chemists in 1970 and a Fellow of the American Ceramic Society in 1974. Stoops passed away December 10, 2005.

Scope/content

The Robert F. Stoops Papers, 1946-1950, 1963, contain class notes, assignments, tests, and textbooks from courses in ceramic engineering, mineralogy, and chemistry that Stoops took as an undergraduate in the now defunct Dept. of Ceramic Engineering at North Carolina State College of Agriculture and Engineering (later North Carolina State University). In addition, there is a lab report written by one of Stoops's students at N.C. State's School of Engineering (later the College of Engineering).

Arrangement

The class notes and assignments and papers were bound in paper binders with metal-fasteners, which have been removed. Otherwise, the original order of materials has been preserved within the file folders.
