Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Jay K. Kochi Papers contains 81 boxes. The collection is organized into 8 Series: Research and Publications, Correspondence, Financial, Biographical/Awards, Lectures, Photos, Audio-Visual, and CDs. The collection contains copies of Kochi’s publications, correspondence regarding the publications, correspondence to and from Kochi, documents regarding grants and other financial matters, lecture images, biographical information, and floppy disks and CDs. Materials in the collection span from the 1946 to 2008 with the bulk of the collection dated from 1970-2000. From 1968 until 1984 Kochi worked at the University of Indiana and some of the collection covers his work there, but the majority of the collection is from Kochi’s time at the University of Houston, 1984-2008.

For preservation and access reasons, the files have been reboxed and refoldered. Kochi gave each of his publications a unique identifying number from 1 to 573 and recorded publication information in a key. Manuscripts, drafts and correlating correspondence have been filed in numerical order based upon Kochi’s unique identifying numbers. Offprints of Kochi’s publications have been separated from the manuscripts and filed numerically as well. Correspondence not related to manuscripts has been filed alphabetically, and attachments pertaining to specific correspondence have been kept with that correspondence. Financial documentation and lecture images have been kept in original order whenever possible. When available, original folder names have been maintained.

Biographical Note

Jay K. Kochi (May 17, 1927-August 9, 2008) was a chemistry professor known for developing a one-carbon oxidative degradation of carboxylic acids known as the Kochi Reaction. As a teenager, he was interned at a war relocation camp in Arizona. Shortly after graduating from high school, he studied at the University of California at Los Angeles and later received a doctorate from Iowa State University. He was a professor of chemistry at Case University, the Earl Blough Professor of Chemistry at Indiana University, and the Welch Professor of Chemistry at the University of Houston. He also taught at Harvard and served as a National Institute of Health fellow at Cambridge University. Early in his career he worked with exploratory chemistry for Shell Development Company. Kochi was a member of the National Academy of Sciences, a recipient of the Alexander Von Humbolt U.S. Senior Scientist Award, a recipient of the American Chemical Society’s Arthur C. Cope Scholar Award, and recipient of the James Flack Norris Award.

Series 3: Financial
This series consists of five sub-series: Welch Endowed Chair, National Science Foundation, Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, University of Houston and Other Accounts. Financial paperwork can contain: budget details, grant proposals and project updates, grant award statements and award modifications, expenditures, invoices, order forms, travel requests and expenses, POs, timesheets, payroll information. The best effort has been taken to maintain the original order, therefore some information from differing sub-series may be interfiled. Folders with intermingled sub-series items have been identified in a note. Kochi’s original folder names are noted by quotation marks.
