Thomas Baker Slick Jr. - an adventurer, philanthropist and oilman - founded SwRI at a ranch in South Texas in 1947. After recruiting talent from around the country, he challenged his team of scientists and engineers to search for revolutionary advances through advanced science and applied technology. This spirit lives today. SwRI is one of the oldest independent non-profit organizations in the United States, providing innovative scientific, technological, and engineering services to government and commercial clients around the world.
