Many ecosystems were examined, from the Clifty Creek Power Plant to global consequences of nuclear war. Numerous funding agencies, both public and private, opened their resources to TIE, the research consortium best suited to addressing those often multi-disciplinary questions relating to policy making in the ecological sphere. The distilled essence of the research work of TIE can be found in the Publications File.

This series is largely composes of budget support and printing invoices. Initial discussion with the TIE representatives yielded a suggested retention time of two years from the corporate close of TIE activities; after that point, the records were to be destroyed. The Ancillary Records to the TIE Archive are comprised of correspondence, working papers, audio tapes, and addenda routed through Archives offices for response after cessation of TIE corporate activities on June 30, 1984. Included in this file are requests for jobs, solicitations, requests for publications, and correspondence between TIE representatives and Dr. John C. Edwards, TIE Archivist. The working papers consist of original monographs of Carol Ebel and E. Gilbert Head, working papers used in the processing and reorganization of the TIE papers, and in the preparation of the final inventory. Two sets of cassette audio tapes make up this subseries; Ecology Handbook Conference Tapes-Morgantown/Tulsa 1976 (12 tapes), and TIE History Interview Tapes 1984-1985 (14 tapes). Addenda will be appended to the TIE Archives as Ancillary Records. For additional TIE information, you are referred to the R.H. Goodwin Papers, American Heritage Center, University of Wyoming.
