Administrative history:
Evans was internationally known as the 'Father of the modern science of corrosion and protection of metals'; he went from Marlborough to King's College, Cambridge, in 1907, remaining there until 1911 and returning after army service in the First World War. He spent the rest of his life in Cambridge, researching and writing prolifically on corrosion and oxidation of metals, and died there, unmarried, at the age of ninety-one.

Evans's intellectual vigour and spirit of enquiry remained undiminished to the end of his very long life, as can be seen from several surviving letters written after he was ninety. He was fully conscious of his continuing achievements in extreme old age, and nurtured them by a regime of outdoor exercise, careful diet and self-imposed limits on social activities. As the years went by, however, he realised the need to make suitable dispositions of his possessions; scientific books and journals were offered to appropriate institutions, and in 1964 Evans made a selection of personal writings, photographs and other material which, in bound or typescript form, he circulated among his family and friends: these appear at A.3, A.6 and C.6 in the present collection. It seems that he then destroyed his remaining papers; consequently, no personal records survive of his most important research findings, or of his consultative work for government and industry in the earlier part of his life, and the existing documents are essentially confined to those which accumulated after this major clear-out in the 1960s.
An exception to this is the material relating to Evans's tripartite consultancy with S. Rideal and his son E.K. (later Sir Eric) Rideal in 1912 (see B.2 - B.5). The remaining material in Section B has its interest in documenting Evans's lifelong concern - no doubt continuing that of his father Richardson Evans - for the conservation of the natural environment, whether by the use of windmills to replace or supplement fossil fuels, or by his somewhat less than practical scheme to foster economical and nutritious home baking which greatly occupied his time and tea parties in his last years (see B.17 - B.31 and introductory note).
Several of the letters in Section D refer to the considerable achievement of his publication in 1976 of the 'Second Supplementary Volume' of his major book 'Corrosion and oxidation of metals'. He was then eighty-seven, but continued to ask his correspondents for comments and additional references which he was assembling for use by a successor who would after his death compile a third supplement.

NUTRITION AND FOOD SCIENCE  CSAC 90/1/83/B.17-B.31  [n.d.]

Contents:
The material relates to Evans's belief that, by encouraging home baking on scientific principles, it would be possible both to improve nutrition and also to conserve energy. The idea - which became a dominant one in his last years - derived from his own experiments in baking bread and cakes on a small electric cooker in his kitchen and involved the use of reflecting panels to direct radiation on to the food being cooked. The clearest statement of his aims is perhaps the introduction to a paper on 'Some novel features of the Cambridge baking procedure', dated 31 January 1978, and now at B.20 which reads:
'During recent years a method for the home baking of bread and cake has been developed which aims at the reduction of energy consumption (and hence lowering of the electricity bill) as well as a lessening of claims of the cook's time. The present report seeks to show how this has been found possible by the application of scientific principles, mostly well established fifty years ago but always applied by those who design ovens or write cookery books'.
Evans's idea was in fact less practical than he imagined, deriving as it did from his use of a very small, obsolete model of cooker, the baking of tiny amounts or 'loaflets' as he called them, and, at a later stage in the project, the manipulation of steel shears to cut special liners or reflectors. It was in any case confined to electric cookers. Nevertheless, he contemplated patenting a device, and publishing a booklet on the subject perhaps with a co-author. Only five chapters of the proposed book survive (B 17) though at least eight appear to have been written; there are also various specifications for the design and patent (B.21) and some shorter writings (B 18-B.20)
The promotion of the idea gave rise to considerable correspondence with colleagues in science and industry on nutrition and food chemistry, with manufactures of domestic cooking appliances, with advisers on patenting and publication, and with members of his family and acquaintances who constituted his 'panel of tasters'. This correspondence is presented as a chronological sequence at B.22-B.31.

The material includes comments on research projects, and on papers submitted for publication in the British Corrosion Journal.
Includes correspondence, 1968-69, on the establishment by Mayne of a Corrosion Research Fund at Cambridge to support research and teaching in metallic corrosion and related fields (see Cottrell and Mayne, Memoir, p.239).
