Administrative history:
OUTLINE OF THE CAREER OF MICHAEL WARWICK THOMPSON.
Michael Warwick Thompson was born on 1 June 1931. He attended Rydal School and the University of Liverpool where in 1953 he was awarded a first class honours degree in physics and was also Oliver Lodge Prize-winner. That same year he became a research scientist at the Atomic Energy Research Establishment, Harwell, Berkshire and remained there untill 1965, conducting research into atomic collision phenomena in solids. In 1963 Thompson was awarded a D.Sc. in physics from the University of Liverpool and also in that year was elected a Fellow of the Institute of Physics.
From 1965 to 1980 Thompson worked at the University of Sussex, Brighton. He was Professor of Experimental Physics from 1965 to 1980 (Visiting Professor of Experimental Physics from 1980-1986) and he served as Pro-Vice-Chancellor from 1973 to 1977 (acting Vice-Chancellor in 1976).
In 1980 Thompson was appointed Vice-Chancellor of the University of East Anglia, Norwich. In 1987 he moved to the University of Birmingham as Vice-Chancellor and Principal, retiring in 1996.
Thompson was knighted in 1991.

The material covers the period 1949 to 1991.
Section A, Research, consists of notebooks, research papers and reports and covers the period 1954 to 1986. The notebooks, covering the period 1957 to 1986, consist of rough notes on research carried out at AERE Harwell and at the University of Sussex. There are also three notebooks of experimental results kept while at Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, Chalk River Nuclear Laboratories, Ontario in 1968. The research papers cover the period 1954 to 1985. The bulk were categorised by Thompson as either theoretical or experimental. There are also some research papers which were not placed by Thompson into either category. The reports are United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority Reports (classified and unclassified) and relate to work carried out at AERE, Harwell. They were produced in the period 1957 to 1969. Thompson usually published a version of his unclassified reports and attention is drawn to these in the catalogue.
Section B, Publications and lecture, covers the period 1949 to 1991 and consists of draft publications, lecture material and Thompson's collection of off-prints of his own scientific papers. The bulk of the publications material relates to his book Defects and radiation damage in metals, (Cambridge University Press, 1969). There is one lecture in this section 'Violence and disorder in the solid state' which was presented as the Ninth John Waddell Lecture at The Royal Military College of Canada, Port Frederick, Kingston, Canada in May 1985. Lists of publications and reports and a mailing list can be found together with off-prints of Thompson's scientific papers.
Section C, University of Sussex, consists of material relating to teaching and administration at the University in the period 1973 to 1980. Thompson was leader of the site development project team set up to carry out investigations and planning work for the establishment of a development plan for the University site for the 1970s and 1980s. A report from 1973 about this work is to be found in this section. There are also lecture notes, correspondence re arrangements etc. for seminars, lectures and guest lectures held within the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences during the period 1974 to 1980.

Three ringbound binders kept by Thompson while carrying out research at Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, Chalk River Nuclear Laboratories, Chalk River, Ontario, Canada from August to September 1968. The third binder also contains experiments carried out in the University of Sussex in January 1969.
A single sequence of dividers, running from A to Z, was used to divide up the material within the three binders. Each binder has a table of contents at the front. The binders contain data from experiments including much photographic material.
Thompson later presented his findings in the paper 'Low-angle scattering of He+ ions at a W crystal surface' with B.W. Farmery, A.D. Marwick in Atomic collision phenomena in solids, edited by D.W.Palmer, M.W. Thompson and P.D. Townsend, North-Holland, 1970.
