The Richard E. Nance papers contain correspondence, articles, technical reports and reprints, manuals, periodicals, video, and other materials documenting Nance's teaching, research, and professional service, 1950s-2004, in the field of computer simulation.

Richard E. Nance received his Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering in 1962 from North Carolina State College of Agriculture and Engineering (later North Carolina State University), followed by a Master of Science in 1964. Nance completed his Ph.D. at Purdue in 1968 and soon established himself as a founding leader in the field of computer simulation research. In addition, he taught at Southern Methodist University and Virginia Tech, served as a researcher for the Naval Surface Warfare Center, and participated in a variety of professional activities.

Biographical/historical note

Richard E. Nance received his Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering in 1962 from North Carolina State College of Agriculture and Engineering (later North Carolina State University), followed by a Master of Science in 1964. Nance completed his Ph.D. at Purdue in 1968 and soon established himself as a founding leader in the field of computer simulation.

Nance taught at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, before moving to Virginia Tech where he served as the Director of the Systems Research Center. He also conducted research for the United States Department of Defense, Naval Surface Weapons Center on a variety of projects including the Tomahawk cruise missile and UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles).

In addition to research and teaching, Nance served on several editorial boards and as associate editor for several journals. Nance initiated the establishment of and served as the first Editor-in-Chief for the Association for Computing Machinery journal Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation (ACM TOMACS).

Nance was born in 1940.

Scope/content
