Series 5 is the largest series, documenting Cowling's work with the Southern Oxidants Study (SOS). This series contains annual meetings agendas, correspondence, presentation materials and reports related directly to SOS. SOS also often collaborated with other organizations such as the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Committee (TNRCC), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Science Team, the Spatial Ozone Network (SON) and the North American Research Strategy for Tropospheric Ozone (NARSTO), so this series contains similar items about those and other collaborations. There is also extensive material about the Data Analysis Workshop conducted by SOS. In addition to these paper materials, there are also floppy disks, slides and photographs related to the Southern Oxidants Study (SOS). The materials are dated 1986 to 2007.
This series was arranged according to original order with some attempt to group materials related to the same organization together, such as those related to the North American Research Stategy for Tropospheric Ozone (NARSTO).

Series 6 contains audiovisual materials, primarily videotapes related to Cowling's work, such as with the North Carolina Progress Board, with animal waste and with the Southern Oxidants Study) and cassette tapes, most of which document lectures Cowling gave for a plant pathology course. Unfortunately PP 650 no longer exists, so it is not clear what the course title would have been, although it was likely a graduate level course since it was above 500. The materials are dated 1972 to 2006.
This series was arranged by type of item and then according to original order for the videotapes and by the discussion number for the majority of the cassette tapes.

Scope and Content Note

This collection contains files from 1957 to 2013 that include reports, notes, writings, research data, memos, correspondence, and newspaper clippings documenting Ellis B. Cowling's career. There are correspondence, publications, media clippings from newspapers, websites and magazines, drafts and reports from the Ad Hoc Committee at North Carolina State University and photographs all related to the move of Cape Hatteras Lighthouse in 1999. There is also articles, correspondence, grant application materials, presentation materials, newsletters, newspaper clippings, and reports related to Cowling's animal waste research work, pertaining in particular to the Out-of-the-Box Thinking group. Additionally there is articles, background information, brochures, correspondence and news articles related to Cowling's involvement with the installation of Marye Anne Fox as Chancellor of North Carolina State University, the Watauga Seminar and the Faculty Senate.

The series pertaining to Cowling's work with the Southern Oxidants Study (SOS) is the largest series. This series contains annual meetings agendas, correspondence, presentation materials and reports related directly to SOS. SOS also often collaborated with other organizations such as the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Committee (TNRCC), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Science Team, the Spatial Ozone Network (SON) and the North American Research Strategy for Tropospheric Ozone (NARSTO), so this series contains similar items about those and other collaborations. There is also extensive material about the Data Analysis Workshop conducted by SOS. In addition to these paper materials, there are also floppy disks, slides and photographs related to the Southern Oxidants Study (SOS).

Finally, there are also audiovisual materials, primarily videotapes and cassette tapes. Most of the cassette tapes contain lectures Cowling gave over the course of a semester to the graduate-level PP [Plant Pathology] 650 course, although it is unclear what the course would have been titled since it no longer exists.

Because the Southern Oxidants Study (SOS) was so pervasive throughout Cowling's career, it is likely that there are related materials in other series, particularly in the Animal Waste Research series and the Professional Organization Involvement series. Researchers interested in SOS are encouraged to explore the rest of the collection as well.

Biographical Note

Dr. Ellis B. Cowling is a University Distinguished Professor At-Large Emeritus of Forestry and Plant Pathology at North Carolina State University. Dr. Cowling specializes in biochemistry of wood decay, conservation of essential elements by forest trees, diseases of forest trees and deterioration of timber products, role of nitrogen in coevolution of forest trees and wood-destroying fungi, and integrated management of plant diseases. His other research interests include man-induced changes in the chemical climate and their effects on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, and the role of scientists in public decision making. Dr. Cowling helped develop a nationwide system for monitoring acid deposition called the National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP). His appointment as the Chairman of the Ad Hoc Committee of Faculty at North Carolina State University contributed to the preservation and relocation of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse in North Carolina.

Born in Waukeegan, Ill. on December 11, 1932, Ellis Cowling grew up in upstate New York. He received his B.S. in Wood Technology from Syracuse University in 1954, his M.S. in Forest Pathology from Syracuse University in 1956, and his Ph.D. in Plant Pathology and Biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin in 1959.

Cowling spent a year in Sweden at the University of Uppsala as a United States Public Health Service Postdoctoral Fellow recieving a Filosofie Licensiat in 1960 for Physiologial Botany. Returning to the United States, Dr. Cowling worked as a professor and plant pathologist at Yale University from 1960 to 1965. In 1965, he joined the faculty at North Carolina State University where he remained until his retirement.

While at North Carolina State University, Dr. Cowling worked as a professor of Plant Pathology, Forestry, and Wood and Paper Science. He returned to Sweden for a sabbatical and recieved a Filosofie Doktor in Physiological Botany in 1970. Dr. Cowling spent time as the Associate Dean for Graduate Education and Research for the College of Forest Resources from 1978 to 1991, and became the Director of the Southern Oxidants Study in 1993.

Some of Dr. Cowling's more notable honors and awards include election and membership to the National Academy of Sciences in 1973, recipient of the North Carolina Award of Achievement in Science in 1973, recipient of the Oliver Max Gardner Award of the consolidated University of North Carolina in 1981, and election to the Council of the National Academy of Sciences from 1994 to 1997.
