Finding Aid

Prepared by Stephen Paschen, August 2006
2 record storage boxes, 2 cubic feet, 11th floor


Historical Note

The Sea Grant Project was a three-year study (1971-1974) headed by Donald F. Mulvihill, chairman of the Kent State University marketing department and Leonard J. Konopa, KSU marketing professor. The project, funded by a federal grant from the National Science Foundation, intended to test consumer demand for fresh fish in northeastern Ohio as well as distribution problems getting the fish to market.

Scope and Content

Materials in this collection include correspondence, publicity, financial records, published and unpublished papers, surveys, and articles relating to the study. Dorothy Fuldheim's critical television commentary and response by co-investigator Donald Mulvihill are of particular interest.
