Four folders of handwritten calculations, c. 1930s: Schubaurer's Ellipse - 0.2 to 0.4, 0.4 to 1.0, 1.0 to 1.8, and 1.8 to 2.0. Loose items: a letter from L.J. Comrie to Hartree, 17 September 1937, discussing a calculation; a letter from Bertha Jeffreys, Lady Jeffreys, to A.E.B. Owen, 5 December 1986, forwarding a letter from Prof. L. Howarth of Bristol, confirming that the papers were likely to be those of Hartree, and citing his publications on these experiments.
Oldham's notes of his experimental work in physics for the Natural Sciences Tripos, Part II, 1925-1927. An enclosed letter from Oldham, 24 July 1973, explains that he came to St John's College, Cambridge, in 1925 with a degree from King's College, London, which excused him from Part I of the Tripos. A copy letter from Prof. A.B. Pippard, 12 July 1973, acknowledges receipt of the notebooks for the Cavendish Laboratory archives.
