Administrative history:
Leslie Fleetwood Bates was born at Kingswood, Bristol, in 1897. He was educated at the Merchant Venturers' School and the University of Bristol where he read physics, graduating in 1916. He spent the next four years as a radiographer with the British army in India, returning to Bristol in 1920 to pursue research. He remained at Bristol until 1922, and it was during this period that he was introduced by A.P. Chattock to the study of magnetism which became his main research interest for the rest of his life.
After what Bates described as a two years 'interlude', working under Rutherford at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge, where he completed a Ph.D. thesis on the study of long range alpha particles, Bates was appointed to a lectureship at University College, London, in 1924. In 1930 he was promoted to Reader in Physics and in 1936 he became Lancashire-Spencer Professor of Physics at the University College (later University) of Nottingham.
There is very little material in the collection from Bates's pre-Nottingham career; see B.1 - B.3 for notebooks from the period at Bristol, and B.4 - B.13 for lectures delivered to undergraduates at London. However, Bates continued to retain strong links with London University, and these are well documented in the collection. In particular he acted as Visiting Examiner, 1961-77 (see F.1 - F.26), and was also invited to deliver several series of lectures on magnetism (see B.14 - B.16).
Bates remained at Nottingham University until his retirement in 1964. He established a thriving research group based on his own interest in magnetism and was most actively involved in administration and general conduct of affairs, not only in his own department but in the University as a whole. He was a member of the Association of University Teachers (President, 1938-39) and Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the University, 1953-55 (see C.11). He was also responsible for the building of a large new Physics Department (see C.14 - C.23) which he was able to direct for a short time before his retirement in 1964. Most of the material relating to Nottingham University is to be found in Section C, but there are other papers scattered throughout the collection - see the list of references in the introduction to Section C. Many of the correspondents in Section G are former students or colleagues of Bates at Nottingham.
Of Bates's actual scientific work very little remains, apart from the early notebooks at C.1 - C.3. There are no other notebooks or laboratory records, only drafts for lectures and publications. This may be explained by the fact that much of the collection, with the exception of a few items of personal or biographical interest, dates from the period after Bates's retirement. Thus there is a wealth of papers covering his examining activities and some of the committees on which he served, in particular the Royal Society Symbols Committee of which he was Chairman, 1968-77 (D.86 - D.106), the British Standards Institution Units and Symbols Standards Committee (D.11 - D.34), the University Grants Committee, for which Bates was an Assessor, 1965-68 (D.107 - D.118), and the University of London Academic Advisory Committee to investigate the future role of Birkbeck College (D.59 - D.73).
Bates attached great importance to public work, and the Section covering his membership of committees and societies is a large one, even though not all his activities are as well documented as those mentioned above. In particular, his work as Senior Scientific Adviser for Civil Defence, North Midland Region (1951-72, see D.39 - D.44) led to the award of the C.B.E. in 1966.
Another activity more directly connected with Bates's own research interests was his membership of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) Commission on Magnetism, of which he was Secretary, 1957-66 (see D.52 - D.57). He was thus actively involved in several international conferences held under the auspices of IUPAP, many of which are documented in Section E. One of these, held at Nottingham in September 1964, was of special concern to Bates.
As Chairman of the Organising Committee he was actively involved in the administrative detail of the conference; he delivered the 47th Guthrie Lecture on this occasion, and also 'celebrated' his retirement. See E.10 - E.34 for a full record of the conference.

Section A contains a number of items of biographical interest, especially speeches and letters of congratulation, most of which were assembled and kept together by Bates as likely to be of interest to a memoralist or biographer. He also annotated some of his correspondence in the course of sorting it after his retirement in 1964, and his remarks have been quoted in the catalogue entries where appropriate. When Bates lost the regular service of a secretary on his retirement he would jot down the substance of his replies on his incoming letters, thus preserving the tenor of his correspondence despite the absence of carbon copies. His meticulous attention to detail and his conscientious handling of any matter that was brought to his attention are evident throughout the collection.

Administrative history:
Bates was appointed Lancashire-Spencer Professor of Physics in 1936, and he remained at Nottingham until his retirement in 1964. During that period he built up a thriving research group which won an international reputation in the field of magnetism, and towards the end of his tenure of the chair he was responsible for the building of a large new Physics Department which he directed for about eighteen months.

Contents:
The collection contains few records of Bates's early years at Nottingham apart from mss. of various lectures (see CSAC 83.1.82/C.1 - CSAC 83.1.82/C.9). There is, however, a useful amount of documentation for the planning and execution of the new Physics Building including detailed costings, schedules of equipment, and correspondence (see CSAC 83.1.82/C.14 - CSAC 83.1.82/C.23).

Lectures delivered to students at Nottingham University  CSAC 83.1.82/C.2-C.9  c1936-1964

Contents:
The material is contained in a series of 8 ring-binders and consists of Bates's own ms. notes interleaved with related offprints and other printed matter. There are also drafts of examination questions. The ms. material is undated and there are very few headings. Some of the binders have an indication of contents at the front but other material has often been added.
Because of their miscellaneous composition, it has not been possible to itemise the contents of these binders.
They do, however, show Bates's careful updating and revision of the material for his undergraduate teaching.

In a ms. note, dated 10 October 1964, attached to the Report, Bates writes
'I was mainly responsible for this report which created quite a stir in the College at the time; I regret that I destroyed the correspondence on which it was based. The outbreak of the 1939 War put paid to this report and unpaid to the staff for many years - because, in my view, the U.G.C. did not do its job properly in war time; e.g. it never visited us during the war.
'I think that the document gives a valuable insight into the conditions under which people worked in pre-war days. Anybody writing about the former U.C.N. [University College, Nottingham] ought to study such matters.

University of London  CSAC 83.1.82/F.1-F.27  1961-77

Administrative history:
Bates served as Visiting Examiner to the Board of Studies in Physics.
He advised on syllabus content, commented on draft examination papers, vetted written scripts and conducted oral examinations for the Colleges of the University and for external candidates. The examinations - for Honours Degrees, Ancillary Physics, Course-Unit Physics, etc. - underwent major re-organisation in 1967, entailing alternative sets of papers and tests for several years. Some of Bates's examining was arranged directly with Colleges, some via a central board.
Bates made very careful notes on the scripts he saw and on the candidates he was to examine, and compiled lists of questions and problems to be used at orals. Samples of these have been retained in CSAC 83.1.82/F.26, CSAC 83.1.82/F.27.

Administrative history:
Correspondence re a paper by Koenigsberger on 'Ferromagnetic Parameters and Grain Size' which he submitted to the Philosophical Magazine in 1939. On being advised to abbreviate the paper, he requested some help in improving the English of it and the Editor accordingly asked Bates if he knew of a research student willing to undertake the task. Bates gave the ms. to J.C.Weston, but the outbreak of war interrupted the proceedings, and the revised draft was put into storage until it could be sent to Koenigsberger for approval.
On 14 November 1946, Koenigsberger wrote to Bates enquiring as to the fate of his manuscript. Bates initiated arrangements for its publication, but Koenigsberger died on 3 December and the paper had to be published posthumously.

G.R. Noakes was the Editor of Contemporary Physics and almost all the correspondence is about the day to day running of the journal. Bates was a member of the Editorial Board from the journal's inception in 1959 until his death, and the extent of his contribution is manifest from the bulk of the papers that follow. He sought out authors (including many from among his former students), refereed papers and also contributed many articles and reviews himself.
G.R. Noakes writes: 'He was particularly valuable in a number of ways. First, he was a willing contributor and reviewer... Secondly, he had valuable contacts abroad, was able to get authors from Russia and Bulgaria, and was able to deal with the occasional manuscript in Russian. And he seemed to have friends all over the world'. (Private communication, 1979).

Noakes, G. R.
The correspondence mainly consists of letters from Noakes. Bates's replies are sometimes in the form of ms. drafts, or more often notes jotted on the incoming letters, and correspondence is interleaved with notes on papers refereed by Bates. Brief exchanges with contributors to Contemporary Physics have not been indexed.
