Abstract : This document recounts the administrative history of the European Office of Aerospace Research and Development (EOARD) as well as its predecessor, the European Office of Aerospace Research (EOAR). The period covered is from the inception of the European Office on 22 August 1952 until 1 July 1975, approximately one year after its assignment to the Air Force Office of Scientific Research. During the course of those 23 years, EOAR (and later EOARD) was assigned at various times to the Air Research and Development Command, the Office of Aerospace Research, the Air Force Systems Command, and, lastly, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research. The time period spans its inception and original office located in Brussels, Belgium, the move to London over 1969 and 1970, and its assignment to various organizations including its incorporation into the Air Force Office of Scientific Research in 1975, where it remains to date. The intent of this history is to delineate the lineage, mission, and assignment of the European Office.
