Biographical/Historical note

Born at Topeka, Kansas on January 1, 1890, Homer Dana came to the State of Washington with his parents in the early years of the 20th Century. His family homesteaded in central Washington for a time, then moved to the city of Pullman in 1911, where Dana entered the State College of Washington (now Washington State University). He completed a Bachelor's degree in engineering in 1915 and a Master's degree in 1917. For a brief time he was an instructor at the State College, leaving to go into private engineering practice. In the early 1920's Dana returned to WSU and completed a second Master's degree. He was again employed by the College, first as a consulting engineer, and, after 1924, as a research engineer. While the post of research engineer was his major assignment from 1924 until his retirement in 1960, he also taught classes on occasion, participated in the education of graduate students, and served as administrative head of the Engineering Experiment Station after 1945. He was placed on the State College faculty roster in the late 1940's and was designated Professor Emeritus at his retirement.

Although holding teaching and administrative posts, Dana's major work was research. He conceived his research post to be a generalized and wide-ranging assignment and consequently involved himself in work that was often far removed from his "specialty" of instrumentation and electricity. His initial major experimental project was actually a civil engineering problem, consisting of an attempt to determine the effect of heavy automobile traffic on roads and highways. Beginning with the construction of an instrument to measure the "washboard" effect, the project involved the construction and maintenance of highways as well as the construction of automobiles. The tests on roads that Dana carried out for several years in the late 1920's attracted considerable attention and the results were drawn upon by engineers throughout the United States, in Europe and in Asia.

After the completion of the highway tests, Dana concentrated on building fruit-handling equipment and developed a fruit-washing machine and various fruit-testing devices. These fruit-handling projects led him into engineering problems associated with fruit storage, especially refrigeration. He continued this line of investigation for several years in the 1930's while also working on related problems of heat transfer and storage. The heating and refrigeration projects were combined with electrical experimentation in Dana's major research of the late 1930's, a number of experiments known as the Mason City Project. This project was sponsored by the Washington State Planning Council and was connected with the Grand Coulee Dam development. Basically, it involved an attempt to determine the amount of electricity that a community would consume for heating, refrigeration, air conditioning, lighting, and power.

The Mason City Project, operated for the U.S. Government and having economic planning connotations, had been largely inspired as a reaction to the Great Depression. When recovery from this depression began in the late 1930's, Dana's work took on a different character. As demand from industry increased, he began developing specific processes and products for industrial applications. During this period he developed the "torque screw pole tester," a device for non-destructive testing of highline power transmission poles. At about the same time he began a series of studies on the problem of radio transmission to and from aircraft. This research was begun in cooperation with United Air Lines, but after the United States entered World War II, the project was transferred to the Army Air Corps. The basic problem that Dana attempted to solve in the radio experiments involved the suppression of static created by the "corona" of electrical charges built up around a moving aircraft. After much measurement to determine the nature of the corona, Dana eventually devised his "block and squirter system," a device that effected a considerable reduction of the corona effect.

Although the corona project was not quite finished, the Air Corps dropped it in the research cut-backs that accompanied the end of the war. In spite of this setback Dana saw the project through to completion using WSU facilities. The project also served as the lead-in to his next major project, likewise an aircraft communications problem and a defense-sponsored research effort. This project, carried out in the late 1940's and early 1950's, began as an attempt to develop a new aircraft communication system based on the broadcast of "facsimile" signals. This system, a combination of television and photocopy, proved to be of limited use, but in developing it Dana became involved in the "new" field of duplicating papers. He eventually developed his own "Fax" paper, one of the ancestors of later well-known photocopy paper.

The defense-inspired Fax paper project was but one of many experimental projects undertaken by Dana in response to the great demand for engineering services that faced him after World War II. At this time he found himself working on a number of major projects simultaneously, partly because he had become the administrator of the Engineering Experiment Station, in addition to being the major researcher. He once more attacked a number of problems associated with heating and refrigeration, improved his pole tester, carried out follow-up experiments on aircraft communication, and developed an aircraft warning light system for high voltage electric transmission cables and broadcasting towers. In addition he did considerable work on instrumentation, working on meters for the measure of "emotional stress," an attempt at improvement of the so-called "lie detectors."

The various research projects undertaken by Dana over the years produced a number of patentable devices and processes. In order that these might be available for industrial and commercial use, Dana joined other inventors in the Pullman area for the incorporation of the Washington State Research Foundation. This organization arranged for patent assignment and licenses of the inventions produced by a number of WSU researchers. Dana served as a manager of this organization for many years, and many of its records are included in this collection.

Dana was the author of a prodigious number of published articles, reports and technical bulletins. No small quantity of these were published as Bulletins of the WSU Engineering Experiment Station, while others were presented at professional meetings, or were the subject of publications on engineering and science. He was also often called upon to present information concerning his work at professional conferences and public meetings.

Homer Dana continued to be active after his retirement, at the age of 70 in 1960. His activities were increasingly curtailed by failing health after 1965, although he retained his interest in engineering research and continued to work on ideas for research projects. He died on December 17, 1970 at Spokane, Washington.

Scope and Contents note

The papers of Homer Jackson Dana include correspondence, reports, drafts, notes, drawings, photographs and recordings relative to his work as a research engineer at Washington State University, to his private engineering practice and to his personal affairs. Papers which emanate from Dana's position with the Washington State University Engineering Experiment Station from 1920 to 1960 constitute the major portion of the collection. These papers document Dana's research, experimentation and invention in the fields of communications, electricity, facsimile transmission, highways, lie detectors, heating and refrigeration. The papers also contain Dana's personal correspondence, diaries and business records from the time he was a student, ca. 1910-1915, to his retirement years in the 1960s. In addition, the collection includes some records of the Washington State Research Foundation (1937-1960), an organization founded by Dana and others for the patenting and commercial development of inventions of the Washington State University staff.

Arrangement note

The papers are arranged in eight series and further divided into several chronological and subject sub-series. The arrangement within the sub-series is one of alphabetically ordered folders. Each folder is numbered with a decimal figure which indicates the series and sub-series to which it belongs, as well as indicating its sequential location within the sub-series. The system preserves the main outlines of Dana's arrangement (his papers were separated in several locations) and permitted expansion as additional materials were received. Although primarily useful in the inventorying and arrangement phases of the processing of the papers, its utility as an aid to searching the collection called for its retention.

Three basic approaches to searching the collection have been provided. A series description outlines the broad subdivisions within the papers. A container list of folder headings provides more descriptive detail. The complexity and size of the total collection have necessitated the creation of an additional approach to the material. An index of the folder entries provides the major means of searching the papers. Although not an index of the papers, per se, merely an index of the key words of the folder headings, it unites in one alphabetical sequence materials located at diverse places throughout the collection. The index refers the researcher to the container number which contains the appropriate folder or folders. This may be used in two ways. First, as an index to the container list and secondly as a direct method of access to the papers. The key words which comprise the index entries appear readily upon examination of the container and its contents.

The additional papers of Homer Dana are arranged separately from the eight series previously described in the published register. Within this additional series, the papers are placed in an alphabetical sequence of subject folders. Each folder has been assigned a series and folder number which indicates its theoretical position among the main body of the papers. This integrates the additional material into the series arrangement described in the register.
