Collection Historical Note

The Superconducting Super Collider (AKA "Desertron") was a particle accelerator project located in Waxahachie, Texas that was in existence from 1987 to the program's cancellation in October 1993. Dr. Louis Ianniello, took leave from the Basic Energy Sciences program to serve as the project's first director for 15 months. Ianniello was replaced by Roy Schwitters, a physicist at the University of Texas at Austin. The closing of the Superconducting Super Collider contributed to a minor recession in the Dallas-Fort Worth region.
