Administrative history:
Frederick Charles Frank was born in Durban, South Africa, in 1911. His parents returned to the U.K. very shortly after his birth. Frank was educated at Thetford Grammar School and Ipswich School before gaining scholarships to Lincoln College Oxford in 1929 to read Chemistry. He took his B.A. with first class honours in 1932 and received his B.Sc. a year later following research on phenyl-nitro-methane under N.V. Sidgwick and L.E. Sutton.
Frank went on to research for his D.Phil. on dielectric loss in organic materials with W. (later Lord) Jackson under E.B. Moullin at the Oxford Engineering Science Laboratory, following which he spent 1936-38 at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institut für Physik, Berlin-Dahlem, continuing his study of dielectric loss under P. Debye.
On his return to Britain Frank won an 1851 Senior Studentship to study at E.K. Rideal's Colloid Science Laboratory Cambridge but his dielectric studies of rubber and plastic were cut short by the outbreak of war. Frank spent the first year of the war working on smoke-filters and smoke-screens with O. Gatty, joining the Chemical Defence Research Establishment, Porton, in June 1940. In November, however, Frank was transferred to the Air Ministry's Assistant Directorate of Intelligence (Science) at the request of its Assistant Director, and Frank's friend from Oxford, R.V. Jones. He spent the rest of the war with the Air Ministry. 1940 was also the year of his marriage to Maia Maita Asché, the daughter of Professor B.M. Asché.
In 1946 Frank took up a post in the Bristol University Physics Department for research in solid state physics (initially dielectric relaxation, and relaxation of the Kerr effect) though one of the first topics which engaged him was the synthesis of the elements in the origin of the Universe. Through sharing a room with W.K. Burton and N. Cabrera, however, Frank switched to research on crystal dislocations. His work with Burton and Cabrera was to demonstrate the role dislocations play in the growth of crystals. Apart from crystal defects Frank's wide-ranging research interests at Bristol included the mechanical properties of polymers, the theory of liquid crystals and the mechanics of the interior of the Earth.
Frank was appointed Reader in 1951, Melville Wills Professor in 1954 and Henry Overton Wills Professor and Director of the H.H. Wills Physics Laboratory in 1969. Appointment as Professor Emeritus upon reaching official retirement age in 1976 enabled Frank to continue with his research.
Among the many honours accorded to Frank were the OBE in 1946, election to Fellowship of the Royal Society in 1954 and the conferral of a Knighthood in 1977. Frank was given Honorary Degrees by the universities of Ghent, Bath, Warwick, Surrey and Paris-Sud and by Trinity College Dublin, received awards from the Physical Society and Société Française de Physique, the Royal Society, the American Society for Crystal Growth, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Physics and the American Institute of Metals and was elected to Associate Membership of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering, the U.S. National Academy of Science, the Indian National Academy of Sciences and the Royal Society of South Africa.

The material is presented in the order given in the List of Contents. This large and comprehensive collection covers almost all aspects of Frank's professional career.
Section A, Biographical, consists principally of Frank's own biographical material and records of his career, and family and personal correspondence. Some of Frank's non-scientific interests are represented in a subsection of Clubs and Associations of which he was a member or supporter.
Section B, Bristol University, is chiefly Departmental and University administrative papers and related correspondence. Frank's service with the Colston Research Society is documented as is his contribution to the establishment of the Tyndall Memorial Lectures. The organisation of Frank's research and its funding through the Solid State Physics Fund, and his teaching duties are also represented.
Section C, Research, documents Frank's scientific research from the early 1930s. The material, principally manuscript notes, drafts, calculations and diagrams, covers a wide range of Frank's scientific interests including dielectric loss, crystal dislocations, properties of polymers, liquid crystals and geophysics. Wartime research is also represented in the section, particularly work on rockets.
Section D, Publications, brings together notes, drafts, correspondence and other related material for Frank's published work, 1935-88. This material has been linked wherever possible to Frank's numbered list of publications which is reproduced as pp.224-235 of the present catalogue. There is also an extensive sequence of editorial correspondence with publishing houses, learned societies and journals for which Frank acted as adviser, reviewer or referee. This sequence includes Frank's letters to The Times on scientific and non-scientific topics.
Section E, Lectures and Broadcasts, is a relatively small section. The material is mainly drafts for Frank's lectures and broadcasts (chiefly for BBC radio in the late 1940s).
Section F, Societies and Organisations, is the largest in the collection. It documents Frank's association with 44 British, overseas and international organisations including the Faraday Society, the Institute of Physics, the International Organisation of Crystal Growth, the Pugwash movement, the Royal Society and the Science Research Council. Frank was also involved with a number of local, Bristol institutions including Badminton School, the Bristol Municipal Charities and Queen Elizabeth's Hospital school.
Section G, Consultancies, comprises material relating to Frank's work for commercial organisations undertaken 1949-86. The best documented is Frank's extensive work for De Beers for whom he served on the Diamond Research Committee which oversaw De Beers-funded diamond research in UK universities and which organised the Diamond Research Conferences. A short consultancy with British Rail, whom he advised on water-softening 1949-51, is well documented and consultancies with General Electric and IBM are also represented.
Section H, Visits and Conferences, presents a chronological sequence, 1939-87, of some of Frank's many engagements, both at home and abroad. He made many trips to the U.S.A, frequently in conjunction with a summer consultancy, and served as Visiting Professor at the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics, La Jolla, California 1964-65. In 1979-80 he visited India as Raman Research Professor.
Section J, Correspondence, is a substantial section which includes several extended exchanges with friends, colleagues and former students. Among the correspondents are N. Cabrera, J.D. Eshelby, R.V. Jones and F.R.N. Nabarro.
Section K, References and Appointments, includes material for Frank's service as External Examiner for the universities of Aberdeen and Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and correspondence and papers relating to his work as Assessor for the Royal Society's Paul Fund. This material is subject to restricted access.

Appendix for memoir, by A.M. Tyndall, with related correspondence.
The Appendix was Tyndall's "Early history of C.F. Powell's contribution to the study of nuclear processes by the photographic method", written following Powell's receipt of the 1950 Nobel Prize for Physics. Tyndall explained "It is probable that by the time an obituary of C.F. Powell is required, no-one will be living who watched from the beginning, as I did, the work which led to his Nobel Prize". Tyndall died in 1961.

Frank lectured on "Prince Rupert's Drops - a long chapter in the history of Materials Science" to Bristol University Convocation and Association of Alumni, 7 March 1978. He delivered this lecture a number of times thereafter, in India (H.130, H.132) and to visiting students from Indiana State University (D.143).
Frank's interest in this subject led to collaboration with a Bristol colleague, J.W. Steeds, and L. Brodsley, then Visiting Lecturer in the Department of English, University of California Los Angeles, who had written to the Royal Society 28 January 1983 offering an article on Prince Rupert's Drops for publication in Notes and Records. Sir William Paton, editor, suggested to Frank (who had also been planning an article for Notes and Records) that a joint paper might be in order.

INTERNATIONAL ORGANISATION OF CRYSTAL GROWTH (IOCG)  NCUACS 15.8.89/F.116-F.175  1967-86

Contents:
The IOCG was established following the 1st International Conference on Crystal Growth (ICCG) held in Boston, MA, in 1966. The advisory committee of the conference became a permanent Comité International de la Croissance Cristalline (CICC), which was renamed IOCG at ICCG-3, Marseilles, 1971. IOCG was formed principally to organise and sponsor crystal growth conferences. It also took responsibility for sponsoring the Journal of Crystal Growth (JCG).
Frank was President of CICC 1968-71, succeeding W. Bardsley, and of IOCG 1971-74 and 1974-77. He served on the Executive Committee for six more years thereafter as Past President.
A short history of the IOCG to 1975 by M.M. Schieber, with a brief note by Frank, may be found at NCUACS 15.8.89/F.161.
The material is arranged as follows:
NCUACS 15.8.89/F.116-NCUACS 15.8.89/F.133 CICC/IOCG
NCUACS 15.8.89/F.134-NCUACS 15.8.89/F.166 Conferences

Correspondence and papers re constitution of CICC/IOCG 1970-73  NCUACS 15.8.89/F.118-F.121  1970-73

4 folders.

Contents:
In 1970 the CICC became divided over the question of a new constitution for the proposed IOCG. Two versions were produced, a European and a more complex American. It was decided to resolve the matter by ballot at ICCG-3, Marseilles, 1971, and at the conference the American version won more votes. So narrow was the margin of victory, however, and so sharply polarised the American and European views, that a compromise solution was sought. A Constitution Committee chaired by Frank was therefore established whilst an interim constitution remained in force. The Committee's version was placed before the membership of the IOCG in September 1973 and overwhelmingly approved.
The material is predominantly correspondence between officers of CICC/IOCG. There are also copies of the various constitutions including those proposed in 1971, the interim constitution and the Constitution Committee's final version.

M.M. Schieber, Secretary of IOCG, in a letter of 3 December 1973, set out the four options open to IOCG: to press for full scientific Union status for IOCG, to become an InterUnion commission of IUPAC, IUPAP and IUCr, to create separate links with one or more of the Unions, or to remain without formal ties.
After considerable debate it was decided at the 1974 Tokyo ICCG to seek Associate Organisation status with each of the three Unions. IUPAC gave IOCG this status in September 1975, and IUCr elected it a Scientific Associate organisation August 1978.

PUGWASH CONFERENCES ON SCIENCE AND WORLD AFFAIRS  NCUACS 15.8.89/F.205-F.250  1968-86

Contents:
The Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs originated in a meeting of scientists held in Pugwash, Nova Scotia in 1957 following an appeal from Bertrand Russell and Albert Einstein against the further use of nuclear weapons. Although nuclear disarmament remained the Pugwash movement's main concern, Pugwash conferences were not devoted exclusively to this issue.
Initially the movement was organised by a Continuing Committee of representatives from each geo-political bloc, to which Frank was elected as a UK representative in 1974 succeeding R.E. (later Sir Rudolf) Peierls. In 1975 the Continuing Committee was replaced by the Pugwash Council on which Frank continued to serve.
In a letter of 10 December 1974 to the Executive Secretary of the Royal Society (F.244) Frank commented that prior to his election to the Continuing Committee Pugwash "was not... one of my activities, though Cecil Powell got me to one previous full meeting of Pugwash, in 1968 [F.213-F.218]".

Frank was invited to serve as "an independent scientific adviser" to the Water Treatment Committee, 23 September 1949, on the recommendation of R.V. Jones. This Committee was established to study the problems "in the provision and use of softened water" used in steam locomotive boilers. It first met on 2 December 1949 and held a further thirteen meetings before issuing its report in February 1951.
The Committee considered the problems and costs associated with the various systems of softening the water fed to locomotives to reduce scaling (with its deleterious effect on the costs of boiler maintenance). While allowing for regional diversity (due to differing water hardnesses and to the pre-nationalisation practices of the four great railway companies) the Committee recommended "that further extensions of water treatment should be made as far as possible by internal treatment on the locomotive" rather than by largescale water treatment plants.
The material, predominantly committee papers and background information, is arranged in a chronological sequence.

DE BEERS  NCUACS 15.8.89/G.24-G.99  1949-86

Administrative history:
Frank's association with De Beers, the South African mining company, began in 1949 when, at the suggestion of F.E. (later Sir Francis) Simon, a De Beers subsidiary, Industrial Distributors Ltd., invited Frank to serve as a consultant on diamond research, initially for three years but renewed thereafter. Frank's other formal connections with De Beers were through the Diamond Conferences and the Diamond Research Committee, which the company funded, and through a series of patent cases in the early 1960s in which he gave evidence in his capacity as consultant.
According to Frank's account, given to the 1975 Diamond Dinner (G.95), the Diamond Conferences were initiated by Simon, who persuaded Sir Ernest Oppenheimer, Chairman of De Beers "that at the comparatively small cost of funding an annual conference he could be in touch with a hundred scientists, who would have cost him one or two million a year to put on his payroll." The first was held in 1950.
Shortly after Simon's death in 1956 the Diamond Research Committee was formed, under the chairmanship of the Reading physicist R.W. Ditchburn, both to organise the Diamond Conferences, and to allocate funding from De Beers for diamond research projects in the UK. Frank was a member of the committee from its foundation.
Frank's consultancy with De Beers led to his involvement in a series of cases brought against the American company General Electric's attempt to patent its method of synthesising diamond in South Africa. Frank gave affidavits for the Transvaal and Orange Free State Chamber of Mines who represented De Beers' interests.
In connection with his work for De Beers, whether as a consultant on diamonds or as a member of the Diamond Research Committee, Frank made a number of visits to South Africa.

Patent Cases  [no ref. or date]

Administrative history:
In February 1955 the American company General Electric (GE) announced it had found a method of synthesising diamonds. This was immediately placed under a US government secrecy order as it was judged to be of strategic significance.
The order was lifted on 8 September 1959 and the next day GE filed five patent applications in South Africa to protect its inventions. Three were opposed by the Transvaal and Orange Free State Chamber of Mines, on behalf of De Beers (3550/59, 3551/59 and 3547/59). A further patent application was made on 7 December (4878/59) and this too was challenged. Frank was asked by the lawyers acting for the Chamber of Mines to provide affidavits on its behalf.
As GE also occasionally employed Frank as a consultant, there was a potential clash of interests. This was resolved by GE providing a contract in which work on diamonds was excluded from its provisions. Frank duly testified for the objector.
(see NCUACS 15.8.89/G.110)
The basic patent (3550) was for a method of synthesising non-diamond carbon into diamond by subjecting it to a pressure of 80,000-110,000 atmospheres and a temperature of 1400-1800°C in the presence of a metallic solvent or catalyst. The molten metal dissolves the carbon which is distributed through the metal until saturated. Upon cooling the solution becomes super-saturated and carbon is shed as solid crystals - diamonds. The other patents referred to improvements on this process. 3551 related to using an alloy as the catalyst (lowering the temperature and, more importantly, the pressure required for the conversion of carbon to diamond), 3547 to a way of eliminating the need to determine the temperature at which conversion occurs by providing a method of observing changes in electrical resistance, and 4878 to a method of creating better artificial diamonds by arranging the carbon and catalyst in alternate laminae or layers.
Various grounds for objection were raised but only two were used in court, the "obviousness" and the "inutility" of the alleged inventions. The first maintained that no inventive step was required beyond what was common knowledge in the area, the second that within the terms of the patent application the invention would not necessarily work. Frank's affidavits mainly supported the objection of "obviousness" and the related "lack of novelty" charge (which was, however, dropped, partly because as Frank himself stated GE were correct in claiming the natural processes for the formation of diamond were "not assuredly known").
The first judgement, delivered on 30 November 1964 by the Commissioner for Patents Sir John Clayden, dismissed the objections. The chief "inutility" argument, based on whether the GE term "carboneous material" might not also refer to forms of carbon for which the process would be ineffective, was rejected because the objectors could not come up with any reasonable such material for which the process would not work. Frank had in fact argued against another objection on these grounds, which claimed that the patent specification included metals which would not melt at the temperatures specified, and felt that the "inutility" case was rather weak. The "obviousness" case was also dismissed. According to Clayden the "common knowledge in the art at the effective date of the application" did not include the precise forms of the carbon and catalyst to be used in the GE process, or the right pressure and temperature required. He ruled that it was not common knowledge that graphite would be the form of carbon used, and that following K. Lonsdale's analysis of the GE diamonds it would be assumed Nickel (or a Nickel-based substance) must be the catalyst.
Most importantly the judge found that an attempt to create synthetic diamonds by the GE method in September 1959 would have failed because of mistakes in the calculation of pressure. In their work GE had relied upon experiment to determine the pressures and temperatures needed for success, but soon afterwards R. Berman and Sir Francis Simon produced their "curve" which became accepted as the theoretical guide to the correct thermodynamic conditions for diamond synthesis. The accepted Bridgman Electrical Resistance method of calibrating pressure, however, which Clayden ruled was "common knowledge" in 1959, was faulty. In 1961 it was found to be 30% out at high pressures. Therefore in 1959 anyone following the Berman-Simon curve to reach the right pressure and temperature to create diamonds by the GE method would fail, they would not be calculating pressure accurately.
Frank criticised the judgement noting "The odd outcome is the following: GE placed too much reliance on Bridgman. This is taken as cogent evidence that everyone would place too much reliance on Bridgman... so that GE succeeds because of this mistake on its part." He felt that there were "good grounds" for challenging this judgement.
The Chamber of Mines went to the Court of Appeal. Here too, on 16 June 1966, the "inutility" arguments were rejected. But that on the grounds of "obviousness" was sustained. J. Galgut presiding found that GE itself had revealed most of the facts behind the processes and the rest were "obvious" to any competent diamond-synthesiser. As Frank had stated in his affidavit, the only novelty with the GE process was its "excellent apparatus" which could sustain the high pressures and temperatures which were commonly known to be required.
According to Galgut Graphite was obviously the most likely form of carbon to be used (being easily obtained in a pure form which could be broken down). Furthermore, it was not likely that Nickel would be thought of as the only catalyst. Frank had argued that it was well-known that a number of molten metals from group VIII of the periodic table (and not just Nickel, which has a high melting point) would "dissolve substantial quantities of carbon in an atomically dispersed form", including iron. Finally he rejected the ruling that the undetected flaw in the Bridgman Electrical Resistance calculation of pressure would have effectively prevented synthesis, pointing out that the alternative (and accurate) Bridgman volume method was well-known, and that using the Berman-Simon curve with the uncorrected electrical resistance calculation of pressure, it was possible to achieve diamond synthesis.
In 1961 GE applied for two more related patents, 2117/61, which was for the "production of electrically conductive diamonds" by adding boron or aluminium to the melt, and 1218/61 referring to the etching of diamond surfaces. Both were contested, Frank producing affidavits to the effect that in both cases the process was obvious and no more than an imitation of known natural occurrences.
The material is chiefly copies of the affidavits and other evidence presented at the hearings, together with copies of the two judgements, correspondence from Spoor & Fisher representing the Chamber of Mines, and manuscript drafts of Frank's affidavits. There are also copies of affidavits presented in respect of a rival De Beers patent application (3974/58) to which GE objected. The applicants claimed that whereas the GE process for synthesising diamond operated, according to their application, by catalytic process, theirs operated purely by a "solvent" process. As it was accepted in the cases brought against GE that, if broadly defined, a "catalyst could also be a solvent", case 3974 was dropped in 1962.

GENERAL ELECTRIC (GE)  NCUACS 15.8.89/G.100-G.113  1951-62

Administrative history:
Frank served as occasional consultant in the Metallurgy and Ceramics Research Department of GE's Research Laboratory, Schenectady, NY, under flexible contracts that allowed him scope to attend conferences and visit colleagues in other research establishments. His 1956 consultancy specified he was an advisor on "physics of solids". Exclusion of consulting about diamonds had been informally agreed from the beginning, but in 1962 in view of the South African patents dispute between GE and de Beers, this exclusion was explicitly written into the contract (see NCUACS 15.8.89/G.76-G.86 and NCUACS 15.8.89/G.110).
"There was no formal end to this consultancy. It was put to me that it would be tactful if I deferred my next summer vacation visit (which I had been making every second year) by a year, by which time the patents dispute between GE and de Beers would doubtless be concluded. However, the dispute dragged on and by the time it was over my principal friends at Schenectady, with whom details of the next visit would have been arranged, had moved elsewhere. I did make several visits of one or two days subsequently, at which I was consulted on various scientific questions (one of which might have led to something patentable, but didn't) but never for long enough to receive payment." (F.C.F., private communication, 9 September 1989).
