Royal Greenwich Observatory, 1972 - 1979
Scope and Contents
The collection is comprised of papers accumulated by F. Graham Smith during his time at the Royal Greenwich Observatory.

The remaining papers are comprised of collected items concerning the Science Research Council, Anglo-Australian Telescope Board, European Science Foundation Astronomy Committee and Joint Organization for Solar Observations, and a small set of written pieces by various individuals.
