With a professional career spanning 55 years, Daryl B. Simons was an internationally recognized expert in the fields of hydraulics, hydrology, geomorphology, river mechanics, sediment transport, and hydraulic modeling. His innovative teaching and research while professor of civil engineering at Colorado State University (CSU) and his supervision of hundreds of water-related projects around the world have contributed to this international reputation.
Daryl Baldwin Simons was born February 12, 1918, in Payson, Utah. He remained in Utah for the majority of his education, earning both a B.S. (1947) and an M.S. (1948) in civil engineering from Utah State University. Service in the U.S. Army interrupted his undergraduate education from April 1943 to September 1946 and included time as a unit commander in the Corps of Engineers.
Following his education in Utah, Simons became a professor of civil engineering at the University of Wyoming. During his time there, he earned a Ph.D. (1957) in civil and irrigation engineering from CSU. Upon completion, he took a position as project chief with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in Fort Collins. The position involved conducting research in fluvial hydraulics with an emphasis on erosion and sedimentation, river mechanics, and resistance to flow in alluvial channels.
Simons left the USGS in 1963 when hired as a professor of civil engineering at CSU, where he taught classes on erosion and sedimentation, river mechanics, and hydraulic structures. He was also the head of the River Mechanics and Hydraulics Program and was in charge of all research in civil engineering. In 1965, his position changed to associate dean of engineering research, director of the Engineering Research Center (ERC), and associate director of the Experiment Station as well as professor of civil engineering. Simons retained all four positions until 1983 when he began a transitional retirement, continuing to conduct research at CSU. The period of Simons' leadership was marked by great growth and development for CSU's engineering college, largely due to Simons:
"In his dual capacity as associate dean and head of ERC, Simons organized the infrastructure of staff, accounting, purchasing, and maintenance facilities necessary to support a full-scale research operation. He also demonstrated an extraordinary ability to attract projects and carried a full load of graduate advisees during the next twenty years." (Ann Hilfinger, One Hundred Years of Engineering at Colorado State University, p. 52)
Simons began doing independent consulting following the completion of his Ph.D., becoming involved in consulting projects for the United Nations, the World Bank, other international groups, and many federal and state government agencies. His first project involved designing the Link Canals to redistribute water between India and Pakistan. Other locations for his work have included Egypt, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, many South American countries including Venezuela, Peru, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, and Ecuador as well as much of the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The projects have involved "hydrology, hydraulics, flood control, river geomorphology, sediment transport, mathematical modeling, expert systems, water quality, environmental analysis, navigation, routing pollutants, litigation, etc." ( Who's Who in Engineering, 1995, p. 687).
In 1979, Simons began his first consulting firm, Simons and Li Engineering, with Ruh-Ming Li. They changed the name in 1980 to Simons, Li and Associates, bringing in other people to work with them. By the time Simons left in October 1984, the firm employed approximately one hundred people. Much of the firm's work related to river mechanics, erosion and sedimentation, and mathematical modeling of alluvial systems. The firm did extensive work for the Corps of Engineers, mostly focusing on the Mississippi River, the Ohio River, the Missouri River, and the Colorado River. This included development of a short course on geomorphology and river mechanics, a two-dimensional mathematical model for the upper Mississippi River, and several short films illustrating the dynamics of the river.
Simons formed a new firm in October 1984, Simons and Associates, Inc., and worked there as principal engineer through December 1997. Starting in January 1998, he was the principal engineer at another new firm, D.B. Simons and Associates, Inc., from which he retired in June 2004.
Simons wrote or co-wrote over 445 papers, was the co-author of five textbooks, and contributed chapters to other books. He was a registered Professional Engineer in Colorado, Wyoming, Arizona, New Mexico, and Nebraska. His society affiliations included the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the International Commission on Irrigation and Drainage (ICID), the International Association for Hydraulic Research (IAHR), and the American Geophysical Union (AGU). Simons also served on many committees for these groups. He was the recipient of the ASCE 1960 J.C. Stevens Award, the ASCE 1964 Croes Award, the ASCE 1991 Hunter Rouse Award, and co-recipient of the ASCE 1979 Karl Emil Hilgard Hydraulic Prize. In 1973 he was named Outstanding Professional Engineer for Colorado.
Daryl Simons married Irene May Beck (1921-1984) in 1944 and they had three sons: Robert K., Paul R., and Stephen R. He married Mary Jo Ricker Bell in 1985. Dr. Simons died in Fort Collins on March 13, 2005. A detailed resume and a complete bibliography for Simons can be found in the collection file.
The Papers of Daryl B. Simons consists of documents dated 1868 to 2005, with the bulk falling from 1950 to 1990. The materials were either created or collected by Simons in relation to his research and work. Materials relate to many of the organizations Simons worked for and are largely grouped in that way. Organizations include the United States Geological Survey; Colorado State University; Simons, Li and Associates; Simons and Associates; and D. B. Simons and Associates. A sizable but incomplete representation of Simons' copious published articles and monographs is also in the collection and covers such subjects as hydraulics, sediment transport, and alluvial channels. There are also files related to some of Simons' research projects, from proposals to raw data to drafts and the final reports. Those best documented concern the Mississippi River and Pakistan/Bangladesh. A small portion of personal files is included as well. Predominant material types include reports, articles, books, proposals, correspondence, data, maps, notes, clippings, photographs, slides, negatives, audiotapes, and film reels.
The materials in the collection have been completely rearranged, as they arrived in disorder. They have been grouped into series, mostly according to stages in Simons' career, and then, if needed, divided by subject or material type. Accessions added to the original collection have been integrated in the inventory but remain housed separately.
The collection consists of 9 series in 94 boxes:

Acquisition

The Papers of Daryl B. Simons was acquired by the Water Resources Archive in June 2002, after having been stored at the Engineering Research Center on CSU's Foothills Campus for a number of years. In May and June 2003, major additions to the collection were received from Daryl and Mary Jo Simons.

Appraisal

The main appraisal criterion for all accessions was that materials had to relate directly to Daryl Simons or his work in order to be retained. Books, federal government publications, journal issues, and CSU publications not of a unique or rare nature were not retained. These items from the first accession went through the normal library selection process to be added to the main stacks. Such items from later accessions were reviewed for addition to Special Collections as appropriate. Duplicates of reports and reprints were not retained past a second copy, and unidentified partial drafts were discarded. The page proofs for Simons' textbook Sediment Transport Technology were not retained as they seemed identical to the printed copy. Many drafts of Simons' articles were not retained. Also, the printing negatives and originals for the Bhowmik dissertation and Wend thesis were discarded, as was a set of slides, photographs, and negatives from an unidentified 1975 experiment. Among the materials related to the consulting firms, generally only the materials directly related to the projects were kept, not extraneous materials from the contracting agencies or publications by others.

Processing

The processing of the original portion of collection was completed in June 2003. As the materials were being rearranged, they were inserted in acid-free folders as needed. The majority of metal fasteners were removed and replaced with plastic clips as needed. All rubber bands and most self-stick notes were removed. Ditto sheets were removed when the duplicated pages existed. When Social Security Numbers were found on various papers, the SSNs were blacked out, the pages were then photocopied, and the originals were destroyed. Newspaper clippings were inserted between sheets of acid-free paper. Loose photographs, slides, and negatives were separated to the last series and inserted in archival sleeves, envelopes, or folders. The film reel was housed in its own archival box.

Processing of the 2003 additions was completed in December 2012. Many of the same actions were taken, along with reboxing the original portion of the collection. Some series or subseries were minimally processed. Confidential and privileged materials were removed. Nitrate negatives were scanned and safely discarded.

Separated Collections

Simons' files on the annual Bridge Engineering Conference held by CSU's Department of Civil Engineering were transferred to the University Archives, along with two files on the summer surveying camp held by the same department. Simons did not seem to be directly involved in either of these activities, other than speaking at the conference one year, but probably had the files in relation to his role of associate dean.

Related Collections

A number of reports by Simons can be found in the Papers of Whitney M. Borland. Also, Borland's report about his trip to Fort Collins to discuss Simons' Ph.D. thesis can be found in his travel reports (Series 3, Subseries 1). Overlapping research and college/university matters can also be found in the collections of Everett V. Richardson and Maurice L. Albertson.

Note: Title information supplied by the archivist is bracketed. Estimated pagination is preceded by an "e." Two identical copies of the same item are indicated by the phrase "2 copies" at the end of the entry, following the number of pages of each copy.

These are arranged into five subseries, with the Conferences and committees subseries being the largest.
Box Folder
Subseries 2.1: Teaching materials. 1933-1999 and undated.
Simons regularly taught courses on erosion and sedimentation (CE 716) and river mechanics (CE 717). This subseries contains many of the handouts and references he used, as well as some of the problems and examinations he prepared for class. These folders remain in the order found, with a numbering system on the folders that seems to relate to the bibliography in the first folder in the subseries. The files are followed by a bound volume of course materials for CE 813, Potamology, which is heavily annotated. At the end of the subseries are materials related to miscellaneous classes, including some independent studies he supervised, as well as to some of Simons' teaching experiences beyond his normal courses. These include a course for the Federal Highway Administration on rivers and highways, a course in Peru on advanced hydrology and water resources, and the National Science Foundation's Summer Institute in Fluvial Geomorphology that Simons directed in 1967 and 1968. The latter group of files contains information related to the participants as well as correspondence, textbook lists, reports, brochures, financial information, and course outlines. Files of applicants and refusals were not retained.

Subseries 2.2: Student files. 1958-1983 and undated.
This subseries contains files on students who were either advisees of Dr. Simons or for whom he served on a graduate committee. Each file contains some indication of the student's research or course of study, most often being writings such as drafts or final copies of theses, dissertations, or other papers; files that did not contain such information were not retained. Though all transcripts and grade reports were removed, some files may contain a mixture of applications, correspondence, letters of recommendation, resumes, and photographs, requiring closure to all but the student named; however, access will be granted upon having written consent from the student or providing written proof that the student is deceased. The files are in alphabetical order by student's last name but represent only O-Z, with the exception of one B found elsewhere in the collection. Students in this grouping that stand out include E. V. Richardson, who became a professor of civil engineering at CSU, and James Van Hoften, who became an astronaut with NASA.
Those files with an asterisk (*) are closed to everyone except the student named; however, access will be granted upon having written consent from the student or providing written proof that the student is deceased.

Subseries 2.3: Conferences and committees. 1964-1996 and undated.
This subseries documents Simons' participation in various water- or engineering-related conferences or committees. Items here were retained only if they pertained directly to Simons' participation. Presentation titles and abstracts are frequently present. The organizations most represented in this subseries are the Congress of the International Association for Hydraulic Research, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), and the International Standards Organization (ISO). The latter grouping of files, which relates to Technical Committee (TC) 113, Liquid Flow in Open Channels, seems to have come to Simons from Alvin G. Anderson (AGA) at the University of Minnesota, perhaps when committee membership changed. Also included in the subseries is a folder on the D. B. Simons Symposium on Erosion and Sedimentation, held at CSU in honor of his retirement. The major material types in the subseries are correspondence, conference programs, and reports. The files are arranged in chronological order, with the exception of the ISO files, which were kept together as a group at the beginning of the subseries.

Series 4: Simons and Associates, 1868-1998 and undated (18.75 linear feet)

This series consists of documents from Simons' time at Simons and Associates. The materials are divided into two groups, the first for project files and the second for other files, including reports and correspondence. The project files are arranged in alphabetical order by project name; folders within are maintained as found. The largest set of project files relates to work for the Colorado Attorney General's Office on federal reserved water rights. Other sets relate to various court cases as well as consulting across the western United States and the world. The remaining files mostly contain final reports and are arranged in alphabetical order, with correspondence chronologically grouped at the end followed by a set of files related to the Colorado Research Development Corporation. Material types included are correspondence, depositions and other court documents, maps, charts, notes, data, and reports.

Series 5: Writings and speeches, 1954-2000 and undated (18 linear feet)

This series contains much of the research output by Simons and his collaborators that exists in the collection. Simons had over 445 publications, and more than two-thirds of those can be found here, along with some that may never have been published. The writings in this series seldom have supporting files accompanying them. Publications that have substantial support materials can be found in Series 6: Research papers. The materials here are divided into three subseries by material type.

Subseries 6.4: Research files. 1940-1998 and undated.
This subseries consists of files that relate to Simons' research or consulting projects. For a given project, the files often go from start to finish, including the proposal, financial papers, correspondence, drafts (interim/progress reports), and the final reports. The projects best represented here concern the Mississippi River and Pakistan/Bangladesh (at the time, called East and West Pakistan). Other geographically grouped files include the Connecticut River, the Chippewa River (Wisconsin), and Nepal (the latter being found under both Arun and Nepal). Groups of subject-based or contractor-based files include flood protection at bridges, the Rocky Mountain Forest and Range Experiment Station, Stone and Webster, and THEMIS, a Department of Defense-funded program that involved research in Brazil and Venezuela. Several individual files are included, including one on the report Simons did for the National Academy of Science on the 1976 flood of the Big Thompson River (Colorado). Reports or publications that were found with the research files were retained with them. Master printing copies were discarded if a printed copy existed. Material types include correspondence, reports, proposals, maps, charts, data, publications, brochures, clippings, drawings, financial documents, and more (supporting documentation). The files are arranged alphabetically by project name.

Subseries 6.5: Reference files, alphabetized. 1931-1990 and undated.
This subseries consists of articles, books, reports, theses, and similar items that were retained. Reasons for retention include the item being annotated by Simons, dedicated to Simons, a copy of limited distribution, or other reasons.

The materials were arranged into two subseries based on format type. The subseries of photographic materials is the larger of the two.
Box Folder
Subseries 7.1: Photographic materials. 1938-2000 and undated.
This subseries gives a visual representation of Simons' research. Most of the photographs relate to places where he did his research, including Peru, Venezuela, Chile, Mexico, Nepal, Utah, and the Big Thompson River in Colorado. There are also photos of a few events at CSU, as well as some photos from his students' projects related to Wyoming and Mount Saint Helens (Washington). The most complete set of photos is that by Bhowmik and Wend, two of Simons' students who did research on canals in Wyoming. Their materials include rolls of negatives and scrapbooks of photographs. In addition to geographic photos, there are scientific photos, including modeling studies and a decade-long snow survey photography project by Ralph and Max Parshall. The items that relate to previous series are arranged with respect to that order. Unidentified materials are grouped at the end of the main photographic listing. Special formats, including most aerial photographs, lantern slides, and oversized materials, are listed and housed separately. The bulk of the aerial photograph section relates to the Clarks Fork River in Montana. The bulk of the lantern slides depict water features in China.
