Biography of Samuel P. Massie

Samuel Proctor Massie, Jr., son of Samuel P. and Earlee Massie, was born on July 3, 1919 in Little Rock, Arkansas. The son of two school teachers, Massie often accompanied his mother to class in Keo, Arkansas, where she taught in a single-room schoolhouse. Having been immersed in education since the age of four, Massie was able to enter high school early, starting at Little Rock's Dunbar High School at age ten and graduating in 1932 at the age of thirteen. In 1934, Massie enrolled in Dunbar Junior College, where he earned an associate's degree in 1936. After junior college, Massie enrolled at Arkansas Agricultural, Mechanical, and Normal College (Arkansas AM&N). Having majored in chemistry with minors in math and French, Massie graduated with a Bachelor of Science with highest honors at the age of eighteen. A Master of Science from Fisk University followed in 1940, where Massie studied under the likes of St. Elmo Brady.

After graduating from Fisk, Massie returned briefly to Arkansas where he taught at Arkansas AM&N. In the fall of 1941, Massie left Arkansas AM&N to pursue his PhD in chemistry at Iowa State University under Dr. Henry Gilman. While at Iowa State, Massie was assigned to Gilman's research team developing uranium isotopes for the Manhattan Project. Following the end of the war, Massie returned to his research on nitrogen and sulfur compounds, receiving his PhD in organic chemistry in 1946.

Soon after receiving his PhD, Massie was recruited by St. Elmo Brady to join the chemistry faculty at Fisk University. At Fisk, Massie met Gloria Belle Thompkins, whom he married in August 1947. Shortly thereafter, he accepted a position as chair of the chemistry department at Langston University in Oklahoma, where in addition to teaching, Massie worked on antimalarials under the sponsorship of Upjohn. In 1953, Massie returned to Fisk University once again, as chair of the chemistry department. During his second tenure at Fisk, Massie commenced research on phenothiazine and succeeded in attracting the American Chemical Society's annual conference to Fisk University.

In 1960, Professor Massie resigned from Fisk to accept a position as an associate program director with the National Science Foundation. A year later, he also took on part-time teaching duties in pharmaceutical chemistry at Howard University. Massie left both positions in 1963, following his selection as President of North Carolina College at Durham. While succeeding in expanding the College's faculty, enrollment, and research funding, many of Massie's initiatives were met with resistance, leading to his resignation in 1966.

Having come to the attention of President Lyndon Johnson, who was eager to see the appointment of African Americans to the faculties at the Service Academies, Massie was appointed as a professor of chemistry at the United States Naval Academy in 1966, becoming the Naval Academy's first African American faculty member. Massie's tenure at the Naval Academy, which included a term as Chemistry Department Chair from 1977 to 1981, saw a renewal of his research on the treatment of malaria, as well as research on anti-fouling coatings for naval vessels, the neutralization of nerve gas, and the treatment of sexually transmitted diseases. Massie also played a role in the advancement of African Americans in higher education at the Academy, serving on the Academy's Equal Employment Opportunity Committee and Black Studies Committee. Outside of the Academy, Massie served on the Maryland State Board of Community Colleges and the Governor's Science Advisory Council.

After twenty-seven years of service, Professor Massie retired from the Naval Academy in December 1993, subsequently receiving the title of professor emeritus in May 1994. Shortly thereafter, he accepted a position as vice president at the Bingwa Software Company, an educational software manufacturer. Despite suffering a stroke in 1998, Massie succeeded in completing his autobiography, Catalyst: Autobiography of an American Chemist in 2001. Samuel P. Massie, Jr. died four years later, on April 10, 2005, at the age of eighty-five.

Description of Contents

The Samuel P. Massie Papers, comprising 7.3 linear feet of documentation, span from 1938 to 2003, covering Massie's entire career as a chemist and educator. The papers are primarily the product of Massie's tenure as a member of the United States Naval Academy's Chemistry Department, while also including documentation from Massie's time as a doctoral student at Iowa State College, a faculty member at Fisk University, and as President of North Carolina College at Durham.

Included in the collection are incoming and outgoing letters, research papers, research notes, reports, clippings, manuscripts, speeches, pamphlets, press releases, event programs, minutes, dissertations, and photographs.

The Samuel P. Massie Papers are arranged into seven records series by topical coverage and document type. A brief overview of Massie's life, including his achievements, awards, and career history can be found in Series 1: Biographical Files. The Biographical Files are also the primary source of documentation on Massie's Presidency of North Carolina College at Durham. Series 2: General Correspondence, while brief, offers insight into some of Massie's personal relationships and affiliations, as well as Massie's high demand as a speaker. The series also provides much of the documentation from Massie's tenure at Fisk University.

Series 3: Subject Files, which is divided into three subseries, covers a wide breadth of Massie's personal and professional interests. The General subseries provides documentation regarding Massie's early education, his involvement with various community groups, his membership on both academic and scientific advisory boards, and chemical research of interest to Massie. The Naval Academy subseries focuses on administrative aspects of Massie's tenure at the Academy, such as the general operations of the Chemistry Department. Documents in the Minority Issues subseries largely pertain to the history and role of African Americans in higher education, the sciences, and the military. Documentation of Massie's interest in and work on behalf of African Americans in higher education continues in Series 4: Black Studies Committee/Club Files, which documents efforts to establish and oversee Black Studies Programs at the United States Naval Academy, as well as the inauguration of Black History Month at the Academy.

Massie's work as an educator is the subject of Series 5: Teaching and Course Files. The series, through its review materials, presentation slides, and examinations, details Massie's teaching of several of the Naval Academy's chemistry courses, notably Elements of Chemistry, Foundations of Chemistry, and Medicinal Chemistry. Research conducted by Massie's students, especially his Medicinal Chemistry and Trident Scholar students, can be found in Series 7: Student Research.

Massie's own research is found in the Scientific Research and Writings subseries of Series 6: Research and Writings. Consisting largely of notes and published findings produced while at the Naval Academy and Fisk University, the materials encompass Massie's work on the treatment of malaria, the production of anti-fouling paints, and anti-cancer agents, as well as numerous other topics. Massie's non-scientific writings, namely his autobiography, are covered in the series' Other Writings subseries.

Series 7: Student Research, 1955-1991 Boxes 11-17

Series Description

Research, research papers, theses, and dissertations by students studying under Massie, both at the Naval Academy and at other universities. The majority of the research focuses on topics related to medicinal chemistry, with a number of projects related to Massie's own research on subjects such as the treatment of malaria.

Series Arrangement

Organized into three subseries by institutional affiliation.

Subseries 7a: Naval Academy (Trident Scholars), 1967-1983 Boxes 11-12

Subseries Description

Documentation of the research and findings of Trident Scholars who studied under Massie. The research, which was likely prepared in conjunction with Massie's research projects, including his antimalarial work for Walter Reed Army Medical Center, focuses on such subjects as antimalarials, anticarcinogenic agents, anti-brain tumor agents, and mercury pollution. Included in the subseries are the students' final reports, drafts, research notes, proposals, and related correspondence.

Also included in the subseries are occasional later publications by the Trident Scholars, as well as documents pertaining to students not accepted to the Trident Scholar Program.
