If you are seeking grant reports, the National Science Foundation (NSF) grant files are stored in Lee's Summit, Missouri and you can access them by contacting our Kansas City regional archives at email@example.com. If you wish to view the records, you will have to travel to that facility to see them. For more information about Kansas City, please see: http://www.archives.gov/central-plains/kansas-city/
If you are seeking reports generated by the grantees, there are a few possibilities to explore. You may wish to start with an Advanced Search of our catalog at https://catalog.archives.gov/advancedsearch. Type "Reports" as your Search Term and "307" as the Record Group Number/Collection ID, Scroll down to Level of Description and choose "Series." You should get 24 results. You can click on the thumbnail to see a more detailed description, like this: https://catalog.archives.gov/id/12092853. If you find one or more entries that seem responsive, you can scroll down to the "Archived Copies" section of each and find the contact information for the unit that has custody of those records.
You may also wish to look at the NSF Document Library, https://www.nsf.gov/publications/ . They appear to have digitized everything after 1994, but since you’re seeking something from much earlier, you may wish to contact the NSF and inquire directly about those reports. https://www.research.gov/research-portal/appmanager/base/desktop?_nfpb=true&_pageLabel=research_contact_us
Additionally, you might try the National Technical Information Service (NTIS); it has a large repository of research publications from research that was federally funded. See: https://www.ntis.gov/
Best of luck in your search, and thanks for contacting History Hub!
