Walter Jack Cunningham papers

Call Number: MS 1479
Scope and Contents

The Walter Jack Cunningham Papers are composed of course sylabii, lecture notes, problem sets, exams, and other course materials, which document Walter Jack Cunningham's long career teaching engineering. Cunningham gave his papers to the Yale University Library in 1988.

The papers are arranged by course title, and all materials for a course are grouped together. Course titles are listed chronologically according to the earliest date the course was offered and files include all materials used for the same course in following years. When materials were used for more than one course, the materials are filed under the earliest course date, with later course numbers indicated in parentheses in the list that follows.

The earliest papers date from Cunningham's course in acoustics at Harvard University. Subsequent materials relate to courses taught at Yale University in the departments of electrical engineering, engineering and applied science, and mathematics. Cunningham's work at Yale focused on applied math and linear systems theory, and the assembled materials demonstrate the evolution of courses in systems and control and calculus. Other course materials relate to topics in electron optics, engineering analysis, fields and circuits, and energy.

Conditions Governing Access

The materials are open for research.
