Michigan Memorial Phoenix Project (MMPP) and Ford Nuclear Reactor (FNR) Materials,  1980-2004 [series]

The Michigan Memorial Phoenix Project (2 linear feet) was formed after the Second World War to commemorate the University's war dead by conducting research into the peaceful uses of nuclear energy. The Ford Nuclear Reactor is one of a number of project foci. The records in the OVPR collection reflect continuing inquiry into the safety of and need for the campus nuclear reactor. To this end, the unit underwent a number of internal and external reviews, which paid close attention to incidents at the reactor and to strategies for its possible decommissioning in the future. For more information, background, and project records, also see the Michigan Memorial Phoenix Project collection.

A 2009 addition to the series contains reviews, reports, and various committee materials, including documents from the Safety Review Committee and the Research Advisory Committee. Of particular interest are materials on decommissioning the Ford Nuclear Reactor (FNR). These materials can be found in the files on the Decommissioning Team, and the Decommissioning Impact Subcommittee. A few of the documents in these files mention the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 (9/11) as a factor in considering decommissioning the FNR, though it is not the only factor. For additional materials, researchers should also refer to the following collections: Michigan Memorial Phoenix Project records; and Michigan Memorial Phoenix Project publications.
