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.

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
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
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

citations referred to above, so may not be of general interest):

"ICR 1990-91 GRADUATE SCHOOL General Catalog." 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."
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
Board members in 1990 were:

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

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."
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."
"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."
DIVISION OF GRADUATE STUDY AND RESEARCH
"Most members appointed to the faculty of the ICR Graduate School
have terminal degrees in their fields of instruction or the clear
equivalent of such a degree in terms of relevant research
experience and publications. All faculty members are also
expected to be of high moral character and personal integrity,
firmly committed to the ICR Educational Philosophy."
