LIST OF PUBLICATIONS BY ICR FACULTY AND ADVISORS ================================================ The following table lists all faculty members and technical advisors of the ICR cult who are in scientific research fields. Science education faculty are not included. Two database searches were done: 1. The University of California's MELVYL MEDLINE database covers 4,000 medical and life sciences journals indexed by the National Library of Medicine. At the time of the search, there were a total of 1,620,932 citations from January 1, 1988 to October 6, 1992. Only members listed as M.D.'s, Biology, and Biochemistry were searched with this database as it does not include journals in the other fields. 2. The Current Contents database covers 6,500 scholarly journals indexed by the Institute for Scientific Information. At the time of the search, there were a total of 2,567,123 citations from July 1, 1989 to September 9, 1992. Searches were done on ALL members with this database. It should be noted that there is a significant limitation to these searches, in addition to the fact that they only cover the last 3-1/2 to 5 years. The search software is limited to using only the last name and first and middle initials of the author. Therefore, if the scientist has a common last name, many citations will be listed that come from different scientists that have the same first initial(s) and last name. The subject matter of the papers can be used to eliminate unlikely publications of certain scientists. Also, the address of origin can be used to help confirm the scientist. This is available only with MEDLINE, not with Current Contents. I used these strategies to minimize the problem and included notes at the end to describe the strategies for individual members.

Civil/Mining Engineering - 0 Marshall, Gailen Medicine 0 0 Menton, David Anatomy 7 *1* NOTES: A) LUMSDEN RD. MEDLINE listed 1 citation by a parasitologist. CC listed 8 citations by a pathogenic soil fungus specialist. It is unlikely that these are from the same person, and it is improbable that any of the publications are from Richard D. Lumsden of ICR. All 9 citations are listed below in the interest of fairness. B) MORRIS HM. CC listed 18 citations. However, they were all in the electronic engineering field, presumably all by another individual with the same last name and initials. C) MORRIS JD. CC listed 15 citations. However, 9 were in the field of biology. I am relatively confident that the other 6 are by John D. Morris of ICR (listed below). D) FLIERMANS CB. MEDLINE listed 1 citation and Current Contents listed 6 citations, all in the field of geomicrobiology. I am quite confident that these can be attributed to Carl B. Fliermans as he is listed as a Microbial Ecologist on the Technical Advisory Board. All 7 citations are listed below. E) MEYER JR. MEDLINE listed 3,380 citations and Current Contents listed 55 citations. A search of the address of origin of all 3,380 MEDLINE citations revealed that none were from Baptist Bible College, Clark's Summit, Pennsylvania, John R. Meyer's location according to information in the Technical Advisory Board listing. F) PARKER GE. MEDLINE and Current Contents both listed 1 identical citation. However, the subject of the paper was nuclear medicine and it originated from the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond (see full citation below). It is unlikely that it can be attributed to Gary E. Parker, adjunct faculty member of ICR. G) ECKEL RH. MEDLINE listed 24 citations (see below). Current Contents listed 17 citations, all of which matched the MEDLINE citations. All of them covered adipose tissue and insulin effects and almost all were from the University of Colorado (Denver), the location of Robert H. Eckel according to his listing. Therefore, I'm extremely confident that all of these citations can be attributed to him. H) HAMANN DD. Current Contents listed 5 citations, all in the field of food technology. Donald D. Hamann is listed as "Professor of Food Technology" on the Technical Advisory Board, so I'm very confident that all of these citations can be attributed to him. I) MARSHALL G. MEDLINE listed 108 citations and Current Contents listed 140 citations. None of the MEDLINE citations were from his association (Allergy, Asthma, Immunology Association of Texas), nor were any of them even from Texas. There were 2 citations from and Allergy Division in Tennessee (see below). J) MENTON D. MEDLINE listed 7 citations. All of them deal with anatomy and 5 of them originated from Washington University School of Medicine, David Menton's specialty and location according to his listing on the Technical Advisory Board. Current Contents listed 6 citations. 5 of them were identical to the MEDLINE search, with 1 additional citation. Therefore, a total of 8 citations can be attributed to David Menton with high confidence.

This 45-page booklet is the most recent copy that has been produced by the ICR. What follows is a list of the Faculty and Administration of the ICR Graduate School (including where they got each of their degrees), a list of publications by the science faculty as determined by a September 15, 1992 search on the MELVYL MEDLINE and CURRENT CONTENTS databases (not in the catalog), and lots of other relevant information from the catalog. Note: I recently read that a FAQ exists for this information, so this post may be repetitive. However, there may be some new information here allowing the FAQ to be updated. The following is "A WORD FROM THE PRESIDENT" (Henry M. Morris) of the ICR contained on page 7 of the catalog: "The Institute for Creation Research is now (Fall of 1990) in its tenth year of Graduate School Operations, with many fine graduate students pursuing their M.S. degrees. All of our degree programs have an `Approved' rating of the Private Post-Secondary Education Division of the California State Department of Education, and we confidently invite qualified Christian men and women, who desire to make the best possible investment of their lives and talents, to consider coming to ICR. The programs are designed to prepare graduates both for productive careers in their respective professional fields, especially the need for science teachers in Christian elementary and secondary schools, and also for significant service in the cause of Biblical Christianity. We look forward to hearing from you." Later, the catalog states that they were granted their "Approved" rating in the fields of Astro/Geophysics, Biology, Geology, and Science Education on July 1, 1981 (shortly after classes first began in the Summer of 1981). The "Approved" rating was renewed in November, 1990. It goes on to say that other programs may be added as "resources and demand warrant." The "Administrative Structure" is described as follows: "The Institute for Creation Research is a private, not-for-profit corporation, chartered by the State of California for the purposes of research, writing, and education in both the standard curriculum of each scientific discipline and the Institute's supplemental framework of scientific creationism and Biblical authority in all disciplines." ADMINISTRATION ============== Officers -------- Henry M. Morris, Ph.D. President Duane T. Gish, Ph.D. Vice President Donald H. Rohrer, B.S. Chief Financial Officer John D. Morris, Ph.D. Administrative Vice President Board of Trustees ----------------- "The Institute for Creation Research is administered by a Board of Trustees which consists of at least nine elected members plus the ICR President, who serves as chairman. Members are elected (by the members of the existing Board) to serve for staggered three-year terms and are eligible for re-election to one additional term. At least three members are elected from the San Diego area to serve on an Executive Committee which meets approximately bi-monthly. The entire Board normally meets at least twice annualy...The Board establishes general policies, approves budgets, and appoints the major administrative officers. The ICR administration implements Board policies in day-to-day operations." Board members in 1990 were: Henry M. Morris, Ph.D. Chairman San Diego, CA Robert H. Franks, M.D. Vice Chairman San Diego, CA William Low Secretary El Cajon, CA Benjamin L. Aaron, M.D. Arlington, VA Bart P. Anderson, M.S. Fairfax, VA Howard Batchelor El Cajon, CA Robert R. Armstrong, M.D. La Mesa, CA Jack E. Brady, J.D. Dallas, TX John W. Eckersly, Jr., M.D. Palm City, FL Donald M. Edney, B.S. Dallas, TX R. Lee Huntington, B.S. Rancho Santa Fe, CA Daniel J. Manthei Petoskey, MI William McCandless, M.D. El Cajon, CA Earl Miller La Mesa, CA John Oller, M.D. Albuquerque, NM Richard S. Owen, M.B.A. Houston, TX Robert Popp El Cajon, CA Lowell Vandervort, M.H.A. Rancho Mirage, CA The ICR consists of five divisions: I. Division of Graduate Study and Research Kenneth B. Cumming, Ph.D., Dean II. Division of Extension Services Duane T. Gish, Ph.D., Coordinator III. Division of Curriculum Development Richard B. Bliss, Ed.D., Director IV. Division of Publications Henry M. Morris, Ph.D., Editor V. Division of Support Services Donald H. Rohrer, B.S., Business Manager An "Advisory Council" made up of all the professional-level staff members in these divisions meets about every two months to formulate recommendations to the Board of Trustees. The Division of Graduate Study and Research is described in more detail below. Technical Advisory Board ------------------------ "In addition to its regular professional staff, ICR has a Technical Advisory Board consisting of distinguished scientists in various parts of the country who serve as consultants and advisers in various phases of the ICR activities. These are as follows: Edward F. Blick, Ph.D. Professor of Petroleum and Geological Engineering University of Oklahoma David R. Boylan, Ph.D. Professor of Chemical Engineering Iowa State University Malcolm A. Cutchins, Ph.D. Professor of Aerospace Engineering Auburn University, Alabama Robert H. Eckel, M.D. Associate Professor of Medicine University of Colorado (Denver), Colorado Carl B. Fliermans, Ph.D. Microbial Ecologist DuPont Company, Augusta, Georgia Donald D. Hamann, Ph.D. Professor of Food Technology North Carolina State University Harold R. Henry, Ph.D. Chairman of Civil and Mining Engineering Department University of Alabama Joseph L. Henson, Ph.D. Chairman of Science Division Bob Jones University Gailen Marshall, M.D. Allergy, Asthma, Immunology Association of Texas Houston, TX David Menton, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Anatomy Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis John R. Meyer, Ph.D. Professor of Biology Baptist Bible College, Clark's Summit, Pennsylvania John W. Oller, Jr., Ph.D. Professor of Linguistics University of New Mexico, Albuquerque Ker C. Thomson, Ph.D. Professor of Geophysics, Head of Science Division Bryan College, Dayton, Tennessee John C. Whitcomb, Jr., Th.D. Director of Doctoral Studies Grace Theological Seminary, Winona Lake, Indiana" Regional Representatives ------------------------ Donald B. DeYoung, Ph.D. Midwest Representative Winona Lake, Indiana Lane P. Lester, Ph.D. Eastern Representative Lynchburg, Virginia The "PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES" of the Graduate School: "The purpose of the ICR Graduate School is to discover truth about the universe by scientific research, to correlate and apply such scientific data within the supplemental integrating framework of Biblical creationism, and to implement them effectively in traditional graduate degree programs with standard core curriculum in science and education. "The immediate goal of the ICR Graduate School is to foster research and provide graduate-level training in those fields of natural science that are particularly relevant to the study of origins. The long-range goal is to prepare talented graduates in science and education for future Christian leadership." The ICR's "EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY": "The programs and curricula of the Graduate School present the standard factual scientific content of comparable courses in accredited secular institutions, using standard scientific textbooks, journal articles, and other learning materials. In addition, where appropriate, supplemental interpretive material is presented in accordance with the distinctive ICR mission and beliefs, and in accord with the cherished American principles of academic freedom and civil rights, as applicable particularly to private Christian educational institutions. "While somewhat innovative in the current educational context, this approach to the understanding and teaching of science is essentially the same as that of the founding fathers of science (Newton, Boyle, etc.), and of our nation and its first schools and colleges. In no way does this philosophy subtract from the standard scientific content, but rather enriches it. Opposing philosophies are treated extensively and fairly, so that graduates are well equipped in all areas covered by secular institutions, with the supplementary advantage of learning also the rational [sic] for the ICR interpretation of scientific data related to origins and earth history." Library: 7,100 book volumes 275 periodicals (5,500 volumes) 825 non-book volumes 3,850 faculty volumes Access to the Christian Heritage College Library. "The library [also] houses a specialized Biblical/Theological collection of 3500 volumes. The Ellingson/Ehlert library augments the students research well. This collection offers the student an opportunity to research and construct a Biblical model complimenting the scientific models presented in the classroom...The Library of the Institute for Creation Research is most well known for its collection of creationist books, and of books and periodicals of immediate relevance to the creation/evolution question. It is probably unexcelled by any other library in these respects." Facilities: "The ICR building contains approximately 21,000 square feet of floor space. Major space allocations are for the Museum of Creation and Earth History, library and library offices, four science labs, computer center...Each of the laboratories can also be used as a small classroom. All classes, as graduate courses, have small enrollments, so this alternate usage is quite feasible. There is also one room used only as a classroom, and this is large enough to accommodate thirty or more students, if necessary. At present, the labs are used mainly for thesis research. Graduate laboratory instructional classes are available in each major. "The Museum of Creation and Earth History is open to the public and is frequently toured by visiting classes of school children, as well as individuals. Graduate students often participate in preparation of museum exhibits."
