Correspondence, laboratory notebooks, lectures, and other writings of B.B. Boltwood, scientist and professor of radiochemistry at Yale, best known for his early work in the study of radiation. Of particular note is Boltwood's extended correspondence with Lord Rutherford, the father of atomic physics.
The papers consist of personal and professional correspondence, diaries, reports, data files, writings, printed material, and topical files relating to Gregory Breit's research and teaching career. There are also photographs, biographical information, and files related to his father's design of an anti-submarine attack device in the late 1910s.
Physicist, professor at Yale University. Correspondence, writings, lecture notes and glass slides relating to Kovarik's work on radioactive materials. Included also are biographical materials gathered by Kovarik in connection with an article on Bertram B. Boltwood and papers issued by the Committee on Standards of Radioactivity (1938-1946) of which Kovarik was a member. Prominent among his correspondents are Niels Bohr, Marie S. Curie, Ernest Pollard and Luville T. Steadman.
The bulk of the papers consist of a bound volume of reprints of scientific articles by Leigh Page published between 1884 and 1952. The remaining items are: clippings on his work, three obituary articles, four photographs, including one with Niels Bohr and John Zeleny, and two letters (carbon copies) from his son, Thornton Leigh Page, to W. James King, director of the American Institute of Physics, giving a biographical sketch of his father's life.
The papers reflect William W. Watson's career as a physicist and include correspondence, subject files, writings, and reports on professional conferences and writings, largely for the years 1950 to 1963. Best documented is his work as science advisor to the Philippine government, his involvement with the McGraw Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology, and his participation on the Atomic Energy for Connecticut Committee.
Largely reprints of papers by John Zeleny (1897-1945), together with a volume of laboratory notes kept during his attendance at the University of Berlin (1897), biographical information, photographs, and a testimonial book presented to Zeleny upon his retirement in 1940.
