Typescript and manuscript letters from Ernest Rutherford to A.B. Wood, with a covering note of 28 March 1984.
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.
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.
