Abstract: A recent disaster at Oregon State University did not occur the day after Christmas, on a Sunday, or even on campus. It was not the result ofa water pipe accidentally breaking, an earthquake, or a fire. Instead, it was caused by an act ofterrorism. Early in the morning of Monday, June 10, members ofthe Animal liberation Front (ALF), a radical animal- rights group, vandalized the University's mink research farm. A storage barn was completely destroyed by fire, graffiti was spray-painted on the farm's office and laboratory walls, research records in the office were dumped on the floor, and color slides were stolen. An unidentified chemical agent was poured on a small amount of record material, and a nearby bathroom fixture was broken, flooding the office and the strewn records. What faced the disaster recovery team at the mink research facility was not the usual disaster situation, as we have come to think of it in the archival and library community.
