Douglas Rayner Hartree: Calculations on Schubaurer's Ellipse
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.
Edmund Hopkinson: Notes on Nicholas Saunderson's Lectures
Covers mechanicks, hydrostaticks, pneumaticks, sounds, opticks, the rainbow, astronomy and tides.
Ernest Rutherford: Letters to A.B. Wood
Typescript and manuscript letters from Ernest Rutherford to A.B. Wood, with a covering note of 28 March 1984.
Francis William Aston: Correspondence and Papers
Frank Oldham: Student Notebooks
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.
George Frederick Charles Searle: Notebooks and Class Experiments
James Clerk Maxwell: Letters to George Chrystal and other papers
The collection is comprised of papers relating to James Clerk Maxwell, George Chrystal, Prof. William Garnett (Maxwell's Demonstrator at the Cavendish Laboratory), and John William Strutt, Lord Rayleigh. A typed note states '5.10.67: Presented by Professor Mott, these were found among the possessions of his late Father, who worked in the Cavendish Laboratory for two years in the early days'. The miscellaneous items, nos. 22-26, are in Maxwell's hand.
John Desmond Bernal: Scientific and Personal Papers
John Parnther: Notes and transcripts of lectures
Notes by John Parnther of Peterhouse College on a series of lectures given at Cambridge University. Lectures by N. Saunderson and Robert Smith on hydrostatics, sounds, optics, mechanics, astronomy, the tides, technical chronology, dioptrica and catoptrica.
Miscellaneous Notes, c 1670-c 1680
On gems and other subjects.
Physics, c 1650-c 1750
The Macclesfield Collection principally comprises the archives of John Collins (1625-1683) and William Jones (1675-1749). As well as being mathematicians in their own right, both men corresponded with leading scientific figures of their day and so the collection includes autograph material by Isaac Newton, Edmond Halley, Henry Briggs, Roger Cotes, Henry Oldenburg and Robert Hooke.
Sir George Gabriel Stokes: Miscellaneous Papers
Sir Gordon Sutherland: Correspondence and Papers
Sir Joseph John Thomson: Correspondence and Papers
Sir William Lawrence Bragg and others: Correspondence and Papers
The Elements of Mechanicks, c 1665-c 1727
Papers either in Newton's hand or concerning his life and work. Subjects covered include the Royal Society, education, cosmography, mechanics, mathematics, astronomy and shipbuilding.
The Lawes of Motion: How Solitary Bodies are Moved, c 1665-c 1672
The Portsmouth Collection is the principal collection of Isaac Newton's scientific and mathematical papers, including early drafts of the Principia, and his correspondence with Oldenburg, Halley Flamsteed and many of the other most prominent scientists of his day.
