The Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) Subject Files contain materials documenting the history of SIO and, more broadly,
the historical development of oceanography in the twentieth century.
The SIO Subject Files were started in the late 1970s by Elizabeth Shor, who organized all materials acquired by the SIO Archives
- including personal papers of individuals and records from SIO offices - into separate subject and biographical files. Papers
determined to be pertinent to specific subjects were placed in the Subject Files (SAC 6), while correspondence specific to
individuals was filed by name in the Biographical Files (SAC 5). Shor maintained this system until her departure in 1981,
whereupon no further materials were added.
