The Alan L. Tharp Papers, 1962-2000, contains IBM and other computer manuals, a data printout, memos and notes relating a teaching evaluation form, the proposal for the ePartners Initiative, and materials documenting the history of the Department of Computer Science at North Carolina State University.
Dr. Alan L. Tharp, is Alumni Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Computer Science at North Carolina State University. His primary research interest is in the area of developing new and improved file structures. Of particular interest are structures which improve system performance and ones which allow new applications--tasks which were previously not doable because of a lack of appropriate data structures. He is also interested in database architectures, in improving the usability of software systems, and in computer science education.
Dr. Tharp received his B.S. degree in Science Engineering and his M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from Northwestern University. He has worked for Monsanto Company, Texas Instruments and Aerospace Corporation. He served as the Head of Computer Science at N.C. State University from July 1992 to June 2004. As Department Head, he recruited 29 tenure-track faculty. He also established a Strategic Advisory Board, Senior Design Center, Corporate Education Program, and ePartners Program.
