Description

Contains manuscript notes on experiments made for research into X-ray spectra and crystal analysis, carried out by Sir William Henry Bragg and his son, Sir William Lawrence Bragg. The experients were undertaken in 1913, in the Physical Laboratory of the University of Leeds.

The notes are in ink and pencil, and pages are numbered 1-101. There is a manuscript index on verso of the fly-leaf, with subjects listed alphabetically. Some of the pages are dated, ranging from July-September 1913.

The volume is lettered on front cover: 'PHYSICS DEPARTMENT. THE LEEDS UNIVERSITY.' Bookplate for the University of Leeds Library inside the front cover, with ‘The gift of Sir Lawrence Bragg 1945’ in typescript.

There are two press-cuttings attached to fly-leaf, describing the ceremony of unveiling a tablet in the Brotherton Library to commemorate the work of the late Sir William Bragg and his son, on 20 July 1945. The first press-cutting is from the Yorkshire Post and Leeds Mercury, dated 21 July 1945. The photograph shows Sir Lawrence Bragg, Colonel C.H. Tetley (Pro-Chancellor), Professor R.Whiddington, and B. Mouat Jones (Vice-Chancellor), in front of the tablet. The article describes how the tablet was a gift from the wife of Professor Arthur Smithells, former Professor of Chemistry at the University of Leeds and friend of Sir William Henry Bragg.

What is an archive hierarchy?

Catalogues of archives are usually arranged in hierarchies - one hierarchy for each collection in the archive. The details on display will be of a record at a particular level of the hierarchy. There may be other records above, below, or alongside this record in the same hierarchy. The full hierarchy is shown below.
