Abstract
The Limbaugh Papers include biographical material, correspondence, field notes and dive logs, manuscripts, reprints, photographs, slides, films and sound recordings. Limbaugh introduced SCUBA to Scripps Institution of Oceanography, was the first diving officer at Scripps, and pioneered U.S. civilian scuba instruction in the 1950s. His research on cleaning symbiosis resulted in the publication of several papers in scientific journals. Documents and images in the Limbaugh Papers reflect the wide range of Limbaugh's research, studies, interests and accomplishments from approximately 1949, when he began his studies as a graduate student at UCLA and Scripps, until his death in a diving accident in France in 1960. Biographical letters, articles, news clippings, and reprints of numerous publications subsequent to Limbaugh's death are also part of the collection.

Scope and Content

The Conrad Limbaugh Papers include biographical material, correspondence, field notes and dive logs, manuscripts, reprints, photographs, slides, films and audio recordings. Documents and images in the Limbaugh Papers reflect the wide range of Limbaugh’s research, studies, interests and accomplishments from approximately 1949, when he began his studies as a graduate student at UCLA and Scripps, until his death in a diving accident in France in 1960. Biographical letters, articles, news clippings, and reprints of numerous publications subsequent to Limbaugh’s death, and correspondence pertaining to those posthumous publications, are also part of the collection.

Although the papers are primarily professional, a substantial amount of material in the collection consists of articles written for popular publications, as well as correspondence pertaining to Limbaugh’s active participation in the recreational diving community. Some correspondence does reveal information about Limbaugh's personal life and issues, in particular his academic struggles as a graduate student and Ph.D. candidate. However, there is not much in the papers pertaining to other aspects of either Limbaugh’s family life or his work with Scientific Diving Consultants (SDC).

While there are numerous writings and correspondence in the papers relating to diving training and the Scripps diving program, there are also many key documents that are not in the papers, but that can be found in the papers of others, including those of James Stewart and Carl Hubbs. This is likely because of the dispersion of material from Limbaugh’s office following his death.

Limbaugh’s writings on symbiotic behavior and correspondence pertaining to his interest in such comprise a substantial portion of the papers. His brother-in-law, Dr. Howard Feder, completed work on a number of manuscripts that were then published after Limbaugh’s death. Much of the extensive correspondence relating to this effort is included in the papers.

There are also two copies of an unpublished manuscript in the “Writings by Others Series” that appear to be compilations of some of Limbaugh’s writings on a variety of topics. These have been included in this series because they appear to be versions of Limbaugh’s papers that were substantially rewritten by his father, Denton Limbaugh.

Arrangement

The original order of Limbaugh’s papers in his office was disturbed when his office was closed at his death. It is impossible to reconstruct the original order, although many files were received with headings written in Limbaugh’s hand and in what appears to be his original order. Wherever possible, an effort has been made to present the material chronologically. However, many files and documents were undated. In cases where the chronology cannot be ascertained accurately, files have been arranged by subject matter alphabetically.

The collection consists of approximately 6 cubic feet of files and oversized material organized into 10 series: Biographical Series; Correspondence Series; Dive Clubs, Groups and Film Fests Series; Dive Education, Training and Organizations Series; Field Notes and Reports Series; Newspaper Clippings Series; Writings by Limbaugh Series; Writings by Others Series; Films and Sound Recordings Series, and Photographs Series.

Provenance

Following Limbaugh’s death, the contents of his Scripps office were given to his wife, Nan Limbaugh. She gave some of the material to her brother-in-law, Dr. Howard Feder. Feder prepared several articles for publication from Limbaugh’s unfinished manuscripts and notes, and re-arranged the files. He then transferred some of this material to Dr. Carl Hubbs (until approximately 1976). These materials were stored for several years in Hubbs’s office until, at the request of Betty Shor, they were transferred to her for the Archives in 1976. Shor combined some folders, and refined the arrangement (although the original order had been lost while Feder was using the material.) This material included correspondence (1951-1960), field notes on marine animals and plants, manuscripts of papers, notes on expeditions, teaching materials on diving, the La Jolla area, etc., and was filed by Shor in the Limbaugh Biographical File. Archivist Deborah Day separated the biographical information from the manuscript collection. Biographical information on Limbaugh was retained in the SIO Biographical Files. Feder retained some of the material from Limbaugh’s office, however that material has now been returned to Scripps. It is likely that most, but not all, of the material from Limbaugh’s office has been returned to Scripps and now comprises the collection.
