Arrangement Ninety three boxes of material have been catalogued. Each box is sub-divided into files, which are given an alphabetical reference; most papers have been given an individual reference relating to box, file and item: 1a/1 etc. Most papers have been catalogued individually but some boxes have been listed by file not item, as the content was of a routine nature; for example, the files relating to the Brussels Exhibition (Boxes 82-86). Newspaper cuttings, photographs and a large collection of glass slides have not yet been catalogued. Some recent additions have been made to the archive and these await cataloguing. A name index to the catalogue is in preparation.

Contents:
Prague 1 page, printed
Proclamation of the Presidium of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences. Says the occupation of Czechoslovakia by the armies of the U.S.S.R., the G.D.R., Poland, Hungary and Bulgaria breaks all international agreements as well as the principles of socialist co-operation. Calls for the immediate departure of the occupation forces. Supports the efforts of the Czechoslovak Communist Party to revive a socialist society and create "humanistic and democratic socialism" in Czechoslovakia. Demands renewal of the full sovereignty of Czechoslovakia and the immediate withdrawal of foreign troops. Calls for the "preservation and further development of democratic principles of life and activities of the state, the party and the entire society free of all outside intrusion". Demands that their socialist legal principles be respected. Will never forget the experience of recent days, although members of the Academy "might be forced to keep silent about our feelings and thoughts". In the future, will follow the principle "that it is the duty of scholarship and scholars to seek truth and truth alone and also to defend this truth consequentially".

Was pleased that [George] Porter welcomes the scheme [to reprint Royal Institution Discourses]. Agrees that they should publish all the papers and should close the series at a specific date. Thinks the earlier Discourses are the really vital ones to reprint. Might be a good plan to choose an earlier date than Rayner suggests. "The critical time, in the history of physics at any rate, was just before World War I, an entirely new atmosphere sets in after World War I", to they might aim to continue the series to 1914. Ellingham told him it is difficult to distinguish between physics and chemistry in the early days; "they were lumped together as natural philosophy". Thinks chemistry and physics might be combined in one series for the early papers. "Faraday for instance considered himself a chemist." Should leave the arts lectures until later. Has done a good deal of indexing and will look at the 160-191 list. Editing could simply be a preface to each series or each paper might be prefaced with a note indicating its significance to science at that time. The number of volumes will be very large. Could meet Rayner on 30 December.

The division into physics and chemistry is fairly clear. Comments on his treatment of biological subjects. Has put mechanical and electrical engineering together but thinks it would be better to separate these. Has put all papers on "mechanical appliances used in everyday life" under engineering; might need a "domestic" heading. "It is astonishing how many discourses dealt with military matters, explosives figuring especially frequently." There are probably enough for a section on military science. Would like to discuss the biological sections with A.F. Huxley. Will not do this until he has Rayner's agreement as Huxley might be the person to help on the whole biological side and he does not want to commit Rayner beforehand.

The volumes dealing with physics will appear first and as quickly as possible. Index for the total series on physics will be produced. Will investigate possibility of producing a biography for all those people whose papers appeared.

Sir Lawrence Bragg has passed on Andrade's letter of 2 July giving permission for his paper to be reprinted in the Royal Institution Library of Science series. Have obtained formal permission from most past contributors or their next of kin to reprint lectures. Do not anticipate publishing more than 2000-2500. Not possible to present all the original contributors with a free volume without increasing the price. Are giving a royalty to the Royal Institution for its funds. Andrade's paper was entitled Whirlpools and Vortices in issue No. 137, 1936. It consisted of 20 pages. The 10 volumes of the Physical Sciences series will be priced at about £60.
Pleased to give Andrade 30% discount on the volume in which his paper appears or on the complete set. If Andrade does not want the complete volume, will be pleased to give him two free offprints of his paper.

The question of the annual subscription was raised at the recent Council meeting. The majority felt this should be raised to a guinea. Felt it desirable to take the advice of H.H. Hemming and [P.K.] Boulnois. Best solution seemed to be to defer the matter for a month until there was more representative attendance at another Council meeting. Would welcome Bragg's advice. Discusses the cost of the Association's printing which, at present, is done by Captain Titchener free of charge, and comments on need to make provision for the future when costs have to be met from the annual subscriptions. Some members felt that an increase in the subscription would result in a loss of members. Some thought the subscription could be raised to 10/6 without serious loss of members. It was suggested that they should have a drive to increase membership; comments on this and on the desire to have an active membership. Hopes a decision will be reached at the Council meeting on 21 June.

Had doubts about the sentence "The position now, however, is that the Forces have sufficient personnel upon whom they could call in an emergency to make it unnecessary for them to seek recruits from outside their own resources." If this implies "that in an emergency there is no need to call on civilian sources, nothing could I think be further from the truth". The Royal Society, at the beginning of World War II, prepared a list of available scientists. The Directors of Research for the Services said that, once a war started, there would be no need for any research. "Six months after the war had actually started, as we well know, the services were clamouring for research people."

They felt sure the Ministry of Defence did not mean that there would be no need to call on civilian resources in an emergency. There seemed no need for the Association to keep a register of persons available in emergency. The Director of Survey [? Brig. R.C.A. Edge] "thought the view expressed by the Secretary of State [Denis Healey] was premature considering the current reappraisal of defence policy". The Director of Survey had not been consulted before the Ministry's reply was sent to Bragg. The Annual General Meeting agreed to hold the matter in abeyance. Comments on proposed future activities.

"I have often made the point that fixing position by the intersection of lines of constant distance-difference to two focal points, through the measurement of the difference in arrival-time of signals from (or to) the foci, really had its origin in the location of enemy guns by sound-ranging ..." Would like to quote an early sound-ranging paper and include a contemporary diagram showing the lattice of constant time-difference lines overprinted on a map or grid.

Thanks Bragg for his help concerning sound-ranging. Hopes to consult the sound-ranging manual before Mrs Wakefield goes on holiday. Will not use any illustration or quotation without the permission of the Ministry of Defence. Had realized that sound-ranging was a "collapsed hyperbolic" system, using only the asymptote. It would have been nice to have reproduced a full hyperbolic lattice from the early days. Felt that no account of position-fixing by measuring time differences was complete without reference to sound-ranging.

[Lawrence] Bragg to [Claud] Powell  W.L. BRAGG/27A/204  16 July 1969

Understands his secretary is making arrangements for Powell to consult the sound ranging manual. There were several sound ranging systems in World War I started by the French. The British army developed the [Lucien] Bull method. Bull built "a most elegant 6 string Eindhoven galvanometer to record the arrival of the sound". The microphone was the weak point. "The success of the British sound ranging was due to our developing, at the front, the hot wire microphone (Tucker microphone) which was very sensitive to gun reports and comparatively insensitive to high pitched noises." The French used a pin writing on smoked paper; this was far less accurate. The British "scored" towards the end of the war when guns were more distant and accuracy of timing needed to be greater.

He said that the "French showed it was feasible, British brought method and organization to perfection, Americans copied, and added nothing". The New York Tribune published an account of the lecture "in the best U.S. Journalistic style:- British attempted crude but unsuccessful experiments, but it remained for the Americans, particularly Princeton men to bring method to technical perfection... Trowbridge was madder than he had ever been in his life. They refused to publish a denial. He ran down the reporter and found he hadn't attended the lecture!

They are producers and distributors of short, silent 8mm cartridged films called Film-Loops; comments on this. Is sure they could make two excellent loops from Bragg's film on the bubble model of a metal structure; comments on this. Asks who holds the copyright. Would like to know it they might adapt and distribute loops from the film in return for a royalty payment. Comments on royalties and sales. Outlines procedure for making the loops. There will be notes with each loop. Would prefer these to be written by Bragg or under his direction, but would be prepared to write the notes themselves and submit them to Bragg for approval. Thinks that the film deserves a wider audience and that they could provide this through the Film-Loops.

Sir Lawrence Bragg has sent him a copy of Fitch's letter of 15 September about making film loops from the Bubble Model film. His company produced the film and is responsible for its distribution. Would like further information before a definite agreement can be made; discusses this. They cannot send the master to New York for the purpose of making the dupe and work print. Should be no difficulty in getting these made in Britain to the necessary standards. They are preparing four films based on a lecture by Bragg on Waves and Vibrations. Discusses these films. Asks if Fitch is interested in these and what further information he requires about them.

They should be able to produce very adequate masters of any sequences Fitch may select from the Bubble Model film for 8mm cassette loops. The original film was shot on 35mm stock and the master has been virtually untouched. The print Fitch appears to have seen was made from a 16mm reduction master whic is becoming very worn. Fitch has been basing his judgements on "a third or fourth generation film with the interposition of a reduction process included". They could make a new dupe fro the 35mm on fine grain 16mm stock and could supply Fitch with the sections he wants printed as dupe negatives on 16mm film. Discusses this.

Thanks Bragg for letter of 19 October. Agrees it is excellent to get the business arrangements about the Ealing project clear from the outset. The Ealing [Corporation] offered a royalty of $0.50 per cassette but did not suggest payment of a lump sum for the master nor payment of a fee for the notes. Comments on this. Spoke to W.S. Macqueen, Norman's father. Macqueen said that the original bubble model film was made before the Company was formed and that Macqueens paid all the costs of production. Does not think there is much doubt that the copyright in the film would belong to Macqueen alone. However "the making of 8mm silent single concept film loop cassettes could never have been contemplated at the time of production and that accordingly it would be fair to regard this as a new development standing on its own feet". Wanted an arrangement about the schools lectures whereby Bragg could retain an interest in the full exploitation of the films. Would like the same basis to apply to the Bubble Model 8mm cassette proposal. Suggests that 25% of royalties be paid to Bragg, [W.M.] Lomer and the Royal Institution jointly; any fees for the notes be paid to Bragg; handling charges for making the dupe master be retained by Macqueens. Mr Cadman hopes to put the finishing touches to the Waves films during the week. Comments on arrangements for showing these films. Asks if Bragg has any thoughts about suitable fee for the preparation of notes to accompany the cassettes.

All payments promised by Macqueens had been made except further royalties. At least ten years since he heard from Macqueens and has assumed that the film was no longer selling. Agrees that they should accept offer of 25% of the royalties and a fee for making notes [to accompany film loops]. Will be pleased to do anything necessary when Bragg is in America.

Thanks Bragg for letter of 21 August about original arrangements concerning the Bubble Model film. Bragg will see from his letter of 24 October 1966 that he discussed the copyright position with W.S.Macqueen, Norman Macqueen's father. Comments on this. "There was virtually no doubt in my mind that the copyright in the film would belong exclusively to Macqueens." As Bragg did not mention this in his reply of 9 November 1966, he assumed that Bragg agreed with that position. Should hate Bragg to feel that the Company had gone back on any agreement. It has been a tremendous struggle for him to keep the Company going. "If it became necessary to pay any appreciable sum for past royalties for the Bubble Model film this might break the Company completely, but if it does emerge that there was a positive arrangement I wonder if you would consider a token payment in respect of the past with a fixed royalty on sales from now on?"

Is replying to Bragg's letter of 11 April to Mr Zucker. In 1966 they contacted the Macqueen Film Organisation about making two film loops of Bragg's film, Bubble Model of a Crystal. They have been selling the loops with some success for the last three years. They pay royalties on the sales to the Macqueen Film Organisation on a half-yearly basis. The cheque for $486 represents royalties for the second half of 1969. Does not know of any arrangements made between the Macqueen Organisation and Bragg by which part or all of the royalties are passed to Bragg.

Thanks Bragg for letter of 14 May. Recently started to try to catch up on 3 years' arrears on Macqueen's accounts. Has been aware that he owed Bragg a letter and a remittance in respect of the Ealing [Corporation]. His affairs got badly behind because of a fire at his home in January 1968. Details Bragg gave about the agreement are correct. Ealing should not have sent the cheque and royalty advice to Bragg. Has had earlier remittances from Ealing and intended to clear up the matter in one operation. Has heard nothing from Ealing about payment for the notes; there is no trace of the $100. Asks Bragg to send him the royalty statement and the proposed amendment to the contract. Will write to David Lutyens to get the matter sorted out.

Has no clear recollection of receiving the $100 fee for the text but cannot be certain of this. Pleased the film is selling well. It seemed ideal 6th form/1st year undergraduate material.

Is enclosing a copy of a letter from [I.G.] Murray of Macqueens The Royal Institution is not involved in any negotiations about the loops which the Ealing [Corporation] are making from the Bubble film. Murray says that [David] Lutyens of Ealing approached the Royal Institution direct about making other films. If these loops are parts of the Waves and Vibrations lectures, the Royal Institution is involved; comments on this. The Royal Institution should come to some agreement with Macqueens about royalties. Part of the royalties should come to him. By accident he received a royalty cheque intended for Macqueens and realised that he had not been paid his 25% royalty for the last four years. Is enclosing a draft of his reply to Murray. [D.J.] Miller is checking this for him.

Thanks Murray for letter of 19 May. Agrees that arrangements were that royalties and the $100 for notes were to be paid by the Ealing [Corporation] to Macqueens, who would pass them on to him. Possible that the $100 was paid directly to [W.M.] Lomer; comments on this. Expects to hear from Lomer whether the money was paid. Murray should send him a statement of the royalties received [for Bubble Model film], together with cheque for the $100 and for 25% of the royalties. Thinks that interest should be paid; comments on this. Is sending the cheque for $486.52 to Murray, together with the amendment to the contract. Does not understand Murray's reference to Ealing's approach to the Royal Institution about other film loops. If these are loops of the Bubble film, the Royal Institution is not concerned, as the film was made when he was in Cambridge. If the loops are of his lecture on "How we speak, see and hear", the Royal Institution is concerned. Has sent a copy of the letter to Professor [George] Porter.

Has suggested amendments to Bragg's letter to [I.G.] Murray [of the Macqueen Film Organisation]. Comments on amendments which aim to make the matter more watertight. The $100 [fee for notes accompanying film loops] seems to be in Bragg's "court" until Bragg received definite confirmation from [W.M.] Lomer. If Lomer has not received the money, Bragg will be in a strong position "to put the matter back in Murray's court". Forwarding the cheque for $486.52 to Macqueens will prevent the matter from getting more complicated. Has suggested a suitable rate of interest.

Hopes Bragg's letter to [I.G.] Murray produces the desired result. Has checked the Royal Institution's position regardin the "How we speak, hear and see" film and they are in the clear as regards Macqueen [Film Organisation]. The copyright on the film rests with the Department of Education and Science. He believes the Educational Foundation for Visual Aids was acting as the Department's agents in this matter. "Therefore it seems if Murray is doing any deal with Ealing for extracts from these films then it is up to E.F.V.A. to take up the cudgels with Ealing. But certainly as far as the R.I. is concerned they sold out their interest for a capital sum." David Lutyens from the Ealing [Corporation] consulted [Ronald] King about making film loops. The Royal Institution was to provide the material, Macqueens was to do the filming and Ealing the marketing. Professor King did not want the Royal Institution to be involved in further deals with Murray. There was some discussion about possibility of Ealing doing it without Macqueen but the potential financial return did not appear to justify the effort. Comments on the service given by banks.

Has checked on the position regarding the Macqueen [Film Organisation] with [Ronald] King and the Bursar [D.J.Miller]. Macqueens made a film, "How we speak, hear and see", for the Department of Education and Science. The Educational Foundation for Visual Aids acted as the Department's agents. The Royal Institution received a capital sum for their interest in the film and Bragg received a fee. Copyright rests with the Department of Education and Science. If any loops are being made from these films it is up to the E.F.V.A. to take up the matter with Macqueen. Ealing proposed that the Royal Institution should provide material for further loops and that Macqueens should do the filming and the Ealing [Corporation] the marketing. Did not want to do this if Macqueens were involved. Considered the possibility of doing it without Macqueens but the potential financial return did not justify the effort needed. Does not know if Bragg feels that the Royal Institution can do anything to help.

When this has been done, he will write to give Bragg a full picture of the royalties and of associated matters. Is pleased to make an adjustment in the payment to Bragg to compensate for the delay in dealing with the Ealing remittances; comments on this. Has no record of the receipt of $100; comments on this. Asks [W.M.] Lomer to let him know if he cannot trace this; he will then take the matter up with the Ealing [Corporation]. His comment about Ealing's direct approach to the Royal Institution was not concerned with the Bubble Model or the Waves films. Is anxious to get more of the fine Royal Institution material onto film. With [Ronald] King he devised a formula and he looked for support. Asked if Ealing would be interested in collaborating in such a project. About 18 months later, Professor King mentioned that Ealing had approached the R.I. direct. Discusses this and the films made for the Department of Education and Science. He originally drew attention to the possibilities of a major film development but so far Macqueens has not been able to organise the resources to carry out this scheme. Hopes that the major project can be organised.

Has lost track of the correspondence concerning the original film. "You may think I have been unbusinesslike, but I think it is more the case that I have been too trustful."

He and Lomer are sure that when the [Bubble Model] film was made, [Norman] Macqueen offered them a royalty. Believes they received royalties up to about 1955. Lomer received nothing after that and assumed the film was no longer selling. He has had a steady trickle of enquiries about the film, which he has passed to Murray. If these resulted in sales, royalties must be payable. Possible that the film might become more in demand. Asks if Murray would check on the arrangements made concerning the film.

[David] Lutyens has sent a cheque for [W.M.] Lomer. Lutyens apologised for not replying to his earlier letters. Ealing are about to complete a merger with Holt, Rinehard and Winston Inc. "Lutyens asked me to convey Ealing's apologies to Dr Lomer and says that when they were a young and fast growing organisation their paper work fell far behind, and that it came as a genuine surprise to him that Dr Lomer had never been paid." The original agreement about the film loops [from Bubble Model film] gave Ealing marketing rights only until 31 December 1971. This is inconsistent with the fact that the film loops carry Ealing copyright as distinct from the copyright on the original film. Lutyens would like Ealing's distribution rights to be extended for the life of their copyright. Lutyens proposed to "shift the royalty basis to 10% of Ealing's U.S. catalogue price in the case of home sales, and on sales elsewhere to 10% of Ealing's revenue from the sales". Unless Bragg has any objections, proposes to agree to the amendments. Lomer's cheque has been drawn in sterling amounting to £41. 6. 7.; "this represents appreciably more than if the amount had been paid in dollars when it was originally due - (owing to devaluation)".

Thanks Maurice for his hospitality. Thanks Maurice for the multi-layer plates. Maurice expressed an interest in the polarization of the light reflected from twin layers of potassium chlorate. Was fascinated to find that Maurice's plates show the polarization effects far more vividly. "When the light passes through the multi-plate at a small glancing angle, there is practically no reflection by a vector in the vertical direction so what is practically a white light passes through. The vector in the horizontal direction is reflected by the multi-layers and one gets the effect which you use, a deep and narrow band of colour. With unpolarized light this is much weakened by the mixture of colour and light. If one were using an inclined plate therefore one ought to use polarized light because the number of planes which is best for one direction of polarization will be wrong for the other." Asks for information about the constitution and the thickness of the layers of Maurice's plates.

Is enclosing a copy of the letter he is sending to [R.I.C.H.] Warren about future films. Sorry there have been such difficulties. "I do not think anyone could have anticipated that experiments which had been perfected from the visual point of view would prove such difficult ones to film." The films on electricity had quite straightforward experiments. They then attempted the more exciting programme of expanding the talks on waves and vibrations and this led them into new and difficult ground. Hopes the proposed change of plan will not be too inconvenient.

Agrees with Warren's remarks about plans for the remaining films. Has been worried about the way in which, in recent films, "we have had to go ahead with the shooting without a really satisfactory basis of preparatory work on the photographing of the experiments". It is a matter for congratulation that the previous films have gone so smoothly. "For the first time, we have come up against experiments which have been perfect from our point of view and very striking as visual demonstrations, but which are obviously real brutes for you to film." Discusses possible reasons for the disappointing photographs of the wave trough. He has discussed the matter with [W.A.] Coates and [Ronald] King. They have decided they must abandon "Sea Waves"; comments on this. Before 28 June they will set up the "Young" experiments again and get them working perfectly. They will also set up the fundamental experiments on "Colours" and must check that they can be photographed; comments on this. Expects Anvil Films to take stills of the fringes and film the ripple tank experiments on 28 June. They can take preliminary shots of "Colours" at the same time. On 11 July and succeeding days they are to take trial shots for "Colours" and "X-ray analysis" Does not think "X-ray analysis" will cause many problems in filming. In October they will film these two films, abandoning the idea of doing a third.

Their talks with Kodak about technical problems concerning the Colour lecture have reached the stage where they are forced to do a number of tests. Will not be able to film this lecture at the next session. Hopes eventually to find a solution to the problems of stock, processing and release printing. Work is proceeding on the breaking down of the last two lectures into three films. Bragg will have to be very patient when they shoot the linking material as they have to get as close a match to the original material as possible. Asks if Bragg has a single 18 minute lecture which could be slipped into the next filming period.

Is enclosing a review on "Properties of Matter". Has sent copies of all the reviews to Lord Bowden. The Macqueen [Organisation] anticipated the series proper by filming one of Bragg's lectures in toto, despite warnings. They asked Macqueen's to break down the material into two or three sections to make it suitable for presentation to schools. Wrote to Macqueen's on a number of occasions without receiving any acknowledgement. They are prepared to re-open the matter but in view of the unsatisfactory nature of the material, he cannot see much good resulting from this.

They recently discussed the colour film used for making the Royal Institution films for distribution to schools by the Educational Foundation for Visual Aids. He mentioned the trouble Anvil had had because the film often sheds "whiskers as it runs through the gate". Davies introduced him to one of the Managers of Kodak, who said he would write about this. Has not heard anything since. R.I.C.H. Warren of Anvil showed him a film on the analysis of biological molecules and said they were still having the same trouble. Comments on this. In making the 16 films at the Royal Institution, there were at least 50 occasions on which they had to repeat a run because of these whiskers. Would like to hear Kodak's comments. Gives Warren's address.

Thanks Osgood for letters and for comments [on films]. These have been well-received on the whole; comments on this. He was committed to doing something with Macqueen [Film Organisation] before [Vivian] Bowden telephoned him about securing a grant to make films for the E.F.V.A. He and the Royal Institution had agreed to let Macqueen film the school lectures. He had too high an opinion of the Macqueen firm because of his great admiration for [Norman] Macqueen, who died a few years before. He was shocked when he visited the Macqueen studios and saw their facilities. Is afraid he put E.F.V.A. in a difficult position by being already involved with Macqueen. [I.G.] Murray [of Macqueen's] is editing the bits he "topped and tailed". They were exciting bits to film and he would like to see them appear in the E.F.V.A. series.

Is sure they can arrange some experiments to fit into Bragg's educational film. Shots could be taken through the glass side of a wave-channel "showing circular and elliptical orbits near the surface and near the sea bed, and the effect of wind stress on these orbits". Could take shots of waves approaching the river mouth during flood and ebb and could make observations of the very long waves associated with storm waves of continually varying height. They cannot devote too much time to the film. The only benefit their clients might derive from the film would be through its ability to recruit young people. Asks if Bragg proposes to mention specifically the laboratories where the films were shot.

Thanks Bragg for letter of 20 July. Many insects are able to perceive near-UV and also have sensitivity peaks in the visible. Comments on the honey bee and on the blowfly, Calliphora. Flowers often show an adaptive pattern of UV reflection. Often the outer parts of the petals reflect UV strongly while the centre does not. The centre therefore looks black when viewed through a UV filter. Presumes that the bee sees it like this. Sometimes conspicuous non-UV reflecting veins run out from the centre, for example, in Oenothera. The perception of polarized light is very common in insects. Ants and bees respond to the polarization pattern of blue sky; comments on this. Discusses the compound eyes, which are the organs concerned in the perception of polarized light.

They have encountered a number of difficulties with regard to the multi-layer filter they are trying to make for Bragg's demonstration simulating X-ray reflection from a crystal. They have computed the theoretical performance of a 16-layer filter consisting of alternate high and low indices and of appropriate thicknesses. Have found "that the curve of reflection factor versus angle of incidence for a monochromatic wavelength does not resemble the corresponding characteristic for a crystal structure"; comments on this. They have computed a 15-layer filter with two materials whose indices are only slightly different. This is more promising and might produce a filter which would give a reasonable analogue to the X-ray case. However, technological difficulties have prevented them from laying down a sufficient number of layers to give a worthwhile reflection factor; comments on this. They have one more idea to try. Would be pleased to discuss reasons for failure of the filters.

In the past they have had a number of scientific lectures spread over the year's course. Thinks they may have been giving insufficient attention to scientific matters. Next year, he proposes to devote two or three weeks exclusively to scientific subjects. Asks if Bragg would open the course with a lecture on "The fundamentals of science". This should be an introductory lecture. Bragg might discuss general issues and non-Governmental science. Their lectures usually last for ¾ hour, followed by a discussion period of about 1 hour. They expect about 69 students on next year's course; comments on this. Suggests that Bragg should give the lecture at 10.30 a.m. on 3 March. He leaves the College in December but, before he goes, hopes to send a list of the other lecturers for the science study period and a copy of the setting for it, which will be issued to students. General Sir John Anderson, his successor, will contact Bragg about arrangements for his visit nearer the time.

The Commandant has asked him, as the person responsible for the Science study, to thank Bragg for his letter of 18 November and for the syllabus [of civil service lectures]. The syllabus is not quite what they want as it sets out to teach elementary science rather than methodology. It would suit them better if Bragg could base his talk on lecture 4 as this would show how the scientific view of the world evolved and how it is likely to change. Helpful if Bragg would say something on the lines of lecture 1 in which he discussed "the difference between 'knowing' about electricity and magnetism and our inability to 'explain' it". Asks if Bragg could include something on gravity "as one of the great unknowns is... the manner in which force acts at a distance, as on a satellite in space".

Thanks Bragg for letter of 23 December. Showed the syllabus of the Royal Institution's lectures for civil servants to the scientists on the last College course. They suggested that the College would gain most if Bragg could base his talk on Session 4 of the syllabus. This would show how a scientific view of the world evolves and how it is likely to change. It would also be valuable if Bragg would say something on the lines of Session 1 when Bragg discussed the difference between "knowing" about electricity and magnetism and their inability to "explain" these. Bragg might include gravity in this context. The student scientists feel this would be of more value than a survey of the whole course on physical sciences, which Bragg gives to civil servants. The scientists who put forward these views were C.J. Stephens and D. Cardwell. Pleased to accept whatever Bragg would prefer to talk about as, whatever Bragg decides, they will have first-class morning of lecture and discussion.

Thanks Bragg for letter of 9 February. Their problem was "the recognition of the radiation from an effectively point source against a background radiation from the sky which showed relatively little fine angular structure. The idea was to use two spaced aerials to make an interference pattern which was sufficiently fine as to resolve all structure in the background radiation." They connected the aerials alternately in and out of phase so that the maxima and minima of the interference pattern are interchanged at some high switching frequency, and look for this frequency in the rectified output from the receiver. The background radiation will produce no signal but the point sources will. Discusses this system and its practical advantages. Thinks the application to Asdic [Anti-Submarine Detection & Identification Committee] was probably useful. The problem is much the same, that of detecting a localised source against a very intense extended background radiation. Has a number of discussions with Asdic but is not certain of the final outcome.

Impossible to cover the history of semi-conductors in a couple of pages. Thinks it would be best for Bragg to select those parts of the subject to highlight. The Drude-Lorentz theory of metallic conduction ran into difficulties because it postulated about one "free electron" per atom, while the [P.J.W.] Debye theory of specific heat postulated a negligible number of free electrons. Comments on [A.J.W.] Sommerfeld's 1928 paper, which rehabilitated the Drude-Lorenz theory, and on [F.] Bloch's paper later the same year. "Bloch in fact proved too much" and maintained that valency electrons in all solids were free and that the distinction between very good and very bad conductors was only one of degree. This was not questioned until his own papers of 1931. Comments on these papers. The basic principles of semi-conductors as a distinct class of substance were established in 1931. Nothing fundamental has been added since. Developments have been of two types: more detailed knowledge of band structures and bette theories, and an expansion of the technological applications of semi-conductors, sparked off by the discovery of the transistor. Bragg should decide how to apportion time between a discussion of the basic principles and a survey of the technological applications. Suggests that Bragg might look at R.A. Smith's book on semi-conductors; comments on this.

Apologises for delay in replying to Bragg's letter. Had thought of sending Bragg a draft of his article on geophysics but this has been delayed. Thinks that British achievements during the last 50 years in geophsics might be summed up as "breakthroughs in applying quantitative methods to the main problems of the Earth". Gives examples. On the theoretical side, Britain has led the move away from a static model of the earth "to one in which convection in the core and mantle are seen as the keys to the generation of the magnetic field and the cause of continental drift and tectonic activity respectively". [Edward] Bullard's dynamo theory solved a problem which had existed since 1600. Bragg might find the abstracts of talks given at the November meeting of the Natural Environment Research Council useful.

Is aware that many experimentalists in the diffraction field are members of the X-ray analysis group. All those involved in the establishment of the Chemical Society group are, or have been, members of the X-ray analysis group. They wish the group continued success and hope the group will wish the Chemical Society's group a prosperous existence. Hopes their group will soon be formally constituted. Their main aim is to provide "a discussion forum whereby practical and theoretical chemists can meet practising crystallographers" Comments on this.

Thanks Bragg for letter. Agrees that a joint group is the only alternative to two separate groups; "anything else would be to deny the relevance of crystallography in chemistry". In many ways they have had a joint group for some time, but a formal arrangement might ensure that the interests of all are better served. Pleased if Bragg would write to [J.M.] Robertson. If Robertson and the Chemical Society were willing [to form joint crystallography group], he is sure they could put a strong case to the Committee of the X-ray analysis group and thence to the Council of the Institute of Physics.

This must overlap with the X-ray analysis group and will influence the composition of the X-ray analysis group and the balance of its future activities. Outlines questions which need to be discussed in connection with the proposed new group and possible duplication of activities. The Chemical Society group will be formally constituted in October and honorary officers and committee will be elected at the A.G.M. on 21-22 September. The X-ray analysis group has made approaches to members of the Chemical Society associated with the proposal and the outcome should soon be known. Probable that the X-ray analysis group will have to take some action before the next Committee meeting in November. Would welcome views and recommendations.

"A quorum of Chemical Society Officers had, however, previously 'approved' the proposal - and, backed by 25 Fellows there was little that could be done to influence the formal setting up of the new group." Wells told him that he and Nyholm did all they could at the Chemical Society's Council meeting and succeeded in correcting the idea that the X-ray analysis group does not discuss structures. Have no alternative but to proceed in the way he indicated to Bragg and he will do his best to ensure that the X-ray analysis group "plays a parental role in unifying crystallography in this country".

Is enclosing a reprint. Before he completed his term as Chairman of the Group, they managed to get the U.K. Crystallography Council under way. Does not like the term "Council" but it leaves the way clear for evolution towards an Association, "a body to which crystallographers could belong". The Council will rationalize meetings and circulate information to crystallographers. The change of name of the X-ray analysis group was a "painful necessity". The younger members and officers of the Institute did not properly understand the scope of the Group's activities. "X-ray analysis" is a commonly used term "in a spectroscopic connotation by users of electron probes".
With reprint from Physics Bulletin, 20, 1969: "Physics 1969: a survey". Includes note by Steward, pp.504-5, about advances in X-ray analysis and the X-ray analysis group. W.L. BRAGG/29C/57

Refers to Bragg's letter of 30 October in which Bragg said that he would like at least one representative of the Davy Faraday Laboratory to attend the International Congress of Crystallography in Montreal in 1957. The Royal Society will only be able to make very small grants, probably less than £50 to one person. They are advising crystallographers to explore all possible sources of grants. Would like to know as soon as possible whether a small grant would be of use to Bragg's laboratory if it were available.

They hope that Mrs Hodgkin will be their representative [at the International Congress of Crystallography] in Montreal in presenting the protein story. Sorry that in his "Profile" in the New Scientist, the writer said that the work on B12 had been done [at the Royal Institution]. Does not know how this mistake was made. "These reporters are terribly slack and I am so sorry." Asks if she would like him to write asking for a correction to be made. "I would gladly do so but am not sure whether it is worth it as everybody who matters knows where the work was done."

Is lecturing to the Imperial Defence College on iron and steel on 27 March, two days after Bragg's lecture on "Fundamentals of Science". Does not want to go over ground Bragg will have covered. To explain the properties of steel and problems of iron and steel manufacture, it is necessary to use some elementary, fundamental scientific principles; comments on this Asks if he can assume that Bragg will have covered these principles in his talk. If he can avoid repetition of Bragg's remarks, he will have more time to cover other points. Would like an idea of what Bragg will say about fundamental science and metallurgy.

[Lawrence] Bragg to A.H. Leckie  W.L. BRAGG/30B/25  20 Feb. 1969

½ page, typescript
Does not think they will cover the same ground in any way [in their lectures to the Imperial Defence College]. "I try to explain the difference between fundamental and applied research, to explain the curious mixture of intuition and chance which leads to discoveries in fundamental science, to emphasise - I hope rightly - that fundamental science has willy-nilly to be pursued without any thought of how it is to be used, and to indicate what inspires the fundamental scientist." Tries to show the link between fundamental and applied science and to explain where the fundamental scientist can help and where he cannot.

The Department of Education and Science has returned the contract tor the production of the archive film. Is enclosing a list of amendments they propose to make to the film; comments on this. Is enclosing suggestions for additional commentary for the four versions proposed for the Educational Foundation for Visual Aids film. When he saw Bragg at the end of 1965 he had in mind the possibility of considerable visual improvements in the film. There have been so many delays and complications that the Board is reluctant to spend more money than is necessary on the film unless someone else will share the risk. Originally thought they might make a series of films with the Royal Institution. Was surprised to learn that funds of the Department of Education and Science were to be used for making a series through [J.A.] Harrison [Educational Foundation for Visual Aids]. In these circumstances and in view of the difficulty in making direct business arrangements with the Royal Institution, is reluctant to risk any more money.

Thanks Murray for amendments to film. Will go through these and the introductory and closing commentaries. Hopes Murray realises he did his best for Macqueens. Murray had proposed making films when Lord Bowden said he had set aside a large sum for recording the schools lectures. He could not let this opportunity pass. Pressed [J.A.] Harrison to let Murray demonstrate what he could do. Disappointing things have gone so slowly. Had to make an al ernative plan or the films would never have been finished. The Royal Institution has to work through Harrison [of the Educational Foundation for Visual Aids] and has no funds available for undertaking the scheme on its own.

Thanks Bragg for letter of 20 May. Is grateful for all Bragg personally has done for Macqueens. "There seems to have been something of a dead hand on the project ..." They have never been able to get any business arrangement with the Royal Institution. He originally told Bragg of the possibility of significant distribution through the Educational Foundation for Visual Aids and persuaded [J.A.] Harrison to go ahead with a pilot project. Harrison seems to have taken a central position but they have not been invited to take part in any discussions about the project. Has been dismayed at all the delays, which have cost and are costing unnecessary money. Although he believes the material could be made into four good films by adding some material, the Board does not feel able to bear the additional costs. Will be sorry if no way can be found to finish the separate films. Is sure the Board is right in saying that the economics of the position must be considered; comments on this. Does not imagine that Bragg can do anything to alter the position at this stage and does not want to cause him embarrassment.

Has seen the Macqueen film, which is the second of the series of schools lectures on waves and vibrations. As a record of a film lecture it is good. In many ways it is not up to the standard of the films they have made for Anvil; discusses this. Has doubts about splitting the film into three or four. Thinks it would be better to start from scratch and make the short films again; discusses this. Thinks they would waste time and produce an inferior result if they ask Macqueens to cut up the existing film. Would prefer to finish with Macqueens and get Anvil to make the short films. His only regret would be that he would like to keep Macqueen's shots of the tests for colour blindness. [Ronald] King agrees with him. They have said nothing to Macqueens about the change of plan.

This has been one of his fears, not only with regard to Phillips, but with regard to other people in the field. Bragg's news about developments in this field is exciting.

Spent three days in Cambridge and saw quite a lot of the work of the M.R.C. Laboratory [of Molecular Biology]. Is sure [Max] Perutz is right in continuing to concentrate on haemoglobin. So far the resolution of 5½ A is insufficient to show in detail how the attachment of oxygen affects the molecule. Perutz must go to 3 A to study the mechanism of the oxygen attachment. "The haemoglobin function is so important that this is quite a sufficient target for the foreseeable future." [David] Blow has solved the structure of chymotrypsin sufficiently to show how the chain is folded. This enzyme looks different from [D.C.] Phillips's lysozyme; discusses this. Comments on [Aaron] Klug's work using optical devices for interpreting electron micrographs. Comments on [J.T.] Finch's work on the protein content of mosaic virus. [James] Watson is working on another complex protein and showed him the latest developments of automatic recording. [Sydney] Brenner is studying the nematode work; comments on this. [Robert] Diamond is devising a scheme for the computer to trim the analysis of myoglobin; comments on this. "There were no signs of these varied activities getting into ruts".

Visited Cambridge on 2 July. Discusses [Max] Perutz's work on the pinning down of the iron positions in the haemoglobin molecule by making use of anomalous dispersion. Perutz's main effort is directed towards determining what happens when oxygen enters into or is given up by the haemoglobin molecule; discusses this. [Aaron] Klug is continuing his beautiful work on the analysis of electron micrographs; discusses this.
[Sydney] Brenner is continuing his work on nemtodes and "is trying to correlate the change in a gene when a mutation is artificially produced or arises naturally, with the change in structure of the animal, and the consequent change in behaviour." Comments on this work.
