AGREEMENT FOR DESIGNATION OF H U L L HOUSE

A N D D I N I N G ROOM AS A CHICAGO LANDMARK

(11) At the time the Chicago Circle campus was established, private funds were obtained to preserve and restore the famous Hull House and Dining Room located on the site acquired by the University from the City of Chicago. The structures have unusual historical, community, and aesthetic interest and value and have been accorded National Landmark status.

The City of Chicago has instituted formal proceedings to designate Hull House and Dining Room as a "Chicago Landmark," pursuant to a general municipal ordinance which could permanently restrict the University's utilization of the property.

The University and the City are in disagreement as to the applicability of the ordinance to Hull House and Dining Room. However, as a result of discussions between City and University representatives, a proposed agreement has been developed which contemplates that the City may take action to designate the structures as a Chicago Landmark by an ordinance which would incorporate the proposed agreement, rather than by action under the existing general ordinance relating to Chicago Landmarks.

The proposed agreement would acknowledge that Hull House and Dining Room are the types of structures covered by the State of Illinois statutes relating to the preservation of historical and other special areas. Provision is made for the designation of the property as a Chicago Landmark by the City under terms which preserve to each party the right to assert, at any appropriate time, the applicability or nonapplicability of the existing general municipal ordinance on the subject of landmarks. The University will undertake to give the City at least ninety days written notice of any proposed construction, alteration, or demolition relating to the structures and the City may thereupon take such action as it deems appropriate.

I recommend approval of the proposed agreement.

On motion of Mr. Steger, this recommendation was approved by the following vote: Aye, Mr. Hahn, Mr. Howard, Mr. Hughes, Mr.

"A. I direct that this devise and bequest be utilized by the U N I V E R S I T Y O F I L L I N O I S F O U N D A T I O N to build a special Research Center to bear the title of 'The Benjamin Goldberg Research Center,' which shall be used for research and consultation concerning any research problem in the Medical School.

" I t s staff should consist of a group of specialized scientists in the various fields of scientific endeavor such as Medicine, Surgery, Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Physics, Electronics, Engineering, Mathematics or any other specialty as desired or needed. The staff individually or in whatever grouping necessary shall be available for any consultation in medical research to aid, to simplify, and to extend their knowledge into these research problems, so that these problems will be benefited in. their ultimate solution and their possible benefits to humankind."

RECOMMENDATIONS O F T H E UNIVERSITY PATENT COMMITTEE

(12) The University Patent Committee submits the following recommendations relating to patentable inventions by members of the staff.

I concur in these recommendations.

The Committee on Patents of the Board of Trustees has examined the disclosure documents and other background materials related to these inventions and recommends approval.

Molinaro, Assistant Professor of Microbiology, Medical Center, and Sheldon Dray, Professor of Microbiology and Head of Department, Medical Center, inventors;

developed under the sponsorship of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

Because of a March, 1973, date of public disclosure, the patent attorneys have filed a patent application on the idea. University Patents, Inc., has reported that there may be three commercially feasible patents in the disclosure. Accordingly, the University Patent Committee recommends that the rights of the University in this invention be transferred to the University of Illinois Foundation, subject to the rights of the sponsor.

2. A. Derivatives and Analogs of Geldanamycin as Antitumor, Antiviral, and Antibacterial Agents — Kenneth L.

AUTHORIZATION OF PREFERENTIAL. TREATMENT IN RESEARCH

AGREEMENT WITH DEERE AND COMPANY, URBANA

(13) Deere and Company, Moline, Illinois, has offered to provide the sum of $57,286 for research at the Urbana campus concerned with the control of diesel engine heat losses by the application of insulated ceramic coating to internal parts of the engine. The central objective is to reduce the size of the large radiators which hinder the visibility of the operators on currently used high output farm tractors.

Procedures for applying coatings will be developed and the effectiveness of different coating materials will be studied. In addition to the graduate research support, this project will provide the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering the opportunity to expand its research efforts into the important area of engine heat transfer. This area has many aspects which are not well understood and in the light of the current energy situation promises to become more important in terms of improving engine fuel consumption.

University policy provides that patentable discoveries and related rights arising out of such a project will remain the property of the University but that the

University may accord the sponsor preferential treatment in the use of any resulting patent. Deere and Company has requested that preferential treatment be defined as follows:

"Any inventions or developments resulting from the investigation shall belong to the University and shall be disposed of in the manner determinedby the University, except that the University shall and hereby does grant to the Sponsor a nonexclusive, royalty-free license to any such invention or development whether patented or not and should the University obtain any patent on any such inventions, Sponsor shall be offered the first option to negotiate for an exclusive license in return for appropriate and reasonable royalties, including the right to sub-license, and no non-exclusive licenses shall be offered prior to such offer to Sponsor."

In accordance with Section 17(e) of the General Rules Concerning University 540 BOARD OF TRUSTEES [April 17 Organisation and Procedures,1 the committee established by Section 14(f) has reviewed the proposed arrangement with regard to: (a) the academic value of the project; (b) the importance of further development of the University capabilities in this field of energy utilization and conservation; and (c) the need for giving proper consideration to the sponsor in connection with the sponsor supplying a considerable amount of proprietary background information and technical knowledge to the University research team. It is the opinion of the 14(f) committee that the request is reasonable and that it is in the best interest of the University and the public. The committee and the Vice President for Planning and Allocation recommend its acceptance.

I concur.

O n motion of M r. H a h n, this recommendation was approved.

CANCELLING AWARDS FOR CONTRACTS FOR CLINIC ADMISSIONS

REMODELING IN T H E GENERAL HOSPITAL AND HOSPITAL

A D D I T I O N, MEDICAL CENTER

(14) The President of the University, with the concurrence of appropriate administrative officers, recommends that the contracts awarded by the Board of Trustees on December 19, 1973, in the amount of $27,654.80 for general, plumbing, ventilation, and electrical work for remodeling the clinic admissions area in the General Hospital and the Hospital Addition be cancelled and that the performance and payment bonds be returned to the contractors.

The planning for this project was initiated in mid-1973 before planning for the 500-bed Hospital replacement had reached the present point. The Administration of the Hospital now considers the proposed remodelmg to be incompatible with the functions that will occupy the space when it is reassigned.

It is further recommended that funds in the amount of $1,129.50 be approved to pay any and all contractors' claims. These amounts are for costs of insurance certificates, performance bonds, preparation of shop drawings, and out-of-pocket expenses incurred for this project.

Funds for cancellation costs are available in the Hospital Income Account.

On motion of Mr. Livingston, these recommendations were approved by the following vote: Aye, Mr. Hahn, Mr. Howard, Mr. Hughes, Mr.

Livingston, Mr. Neal, Mrs. Rader, Mr. Steger, Mr. Swain; no, none;

absent, Dr. Bakalis, Mr. Forsyth, Governor Walker.
