It’s been a little more than a year since the passing of Dr. J. Robert Beyster. While he may have left this world, his legacy continues in many ways. Notably, on December 21, 2015, UCSD announced the donation of the papers of Dr. Beyster to the UC San Diego Library. According to the announcement, “Beyster’s papers, which reflect his passion for entrepreneurship and employee-owner enabled entrepreneurial practices, include correspondence, SAIC business records, committee meeting minutes and materials related to employee ownership, as well as records on a broad range of government-funded research and development, including Strategic Air Command during the Cold War, safety of the International Space Station, critical hull design for a number of U.S. entries in the America’s Cup race, clean-up of Three Mile Island, commercialization of the Internet, and many other transformational programs.”

After the papers are processed, they will be housed in the UC San Diego Library’s Mandeville Special Collections, where they will be made available to scholars, researchers, and educators sometime in 2017. Watch this blog for updates.

We would like to thank Leidos, UCSD Special Collections & Archives, FED, and the Beyster Family for helping to continue Dr. Beyster’s legacy into the future. We have included a photo of Betty Beyster signing the deed of gift, accompanied by two of her children, Jim and Mary Ann, and her dog, Baxter.
