Administrative history:
OUTLINE OF THE CAREER OF J.W.S. PRINGLE
Pringle was a scholar of Winchester and later of King's College, Cambridge, where he took first-class degrees in both parts of the Natural Sciences Tripos. His research career began in Cambridge in 1934 and he was University Demonstrator in Zoology 1937-38 and Fellow of King's 1938-44. After war service on airborne radar with the Telecommunications Research Establishment (T.R.E.) and later with the Ministry of Transport, Pringle returned to Cambridge as lecturer in the Department of Zoology and Fellow of Peterhouse. Much of his most important research, on the physiology of cicada song, proprioception in insects, and insect flight muscle was conducted in the Cambridge years to 1961. To this period also belong Pringle's marriage (1946), his many college duties at Peterhouse, his election to the Fellowship of the Royal Society (1954) and his appointment as Reader in Experimental Cytology (1959).
In June 1961 Pringle accepted the Linacre Chair of Zoology which had been offered to him in December 1960, and moved to Oxford where he remained for the rest of his life. His period at Oxford, though not always smooth, was marked by notable achievements such as the building of a large new laboratory housing the Departments of Zoology and Experimental Psychology and the subdepartment of Molecular Biophysics, a major contribution to the founding in 1970 of the new Honour School of Human Sciences and the establishment of his own ARC unit for research in muscle biophysics and insect physiology. From the late 1960s he also developed on active interest in the problems of science in developing countries, and he was especially involved with various research institutes and universities in East Africa.
Pringle retired as Linacre Professor in 1979 and died in 1982.
A fuller account of Pringle's career and research can be found in the Memoir by V.B. Wigglesworth in the Royal Society series, 1983, which has been drawn upon in compiling some of the entries and is referred to in the form (Memoir, p...).

The material is presented in the order shown in the List of Contents. Additional explanatory notes accompany many of the Sections, sub-sections and individual entries in the body of the catalogue. The following paragraphs aim only to draw attention to matters of particular substance or interest.
The surviving collection is almost exclusively concerned with Pringle's scientific career, and includes almost no documentation for his unusually wide range of outside interests. His university teaching and administration at Cambridge and Oxford are well documented in Sections B and C respectively. Section C is particularly rich in its full account of the protracted struggles over the siting and design of the new Zoology department; many of the files were prepared by Pringle himself and reflect his own awareness of the historical interest of the documents. There is also material here relating to the ARC unit of which Pringle was Honorary Director and which was the focus of his principal research interest on insect flight muscle, including research notes, ideas for seminars, and the 'internal memoranda' circulated by the team. Regrettably, there is no surviving material here for Pringle's active contribution to the establishment of the multi-disciplinary Honour School of Human Sciences at Oxford.
The development of Pringle's research is well illustrated by the notebooks, notes and correspondence assembled in Section D, covering the long span 1934-82 (as well as an even earlier school exercise-book of 1928). They include his early 1934 expedition to the Atlas Mountains, his important 1953 expedition to Ceylon to study cicada song, drafts for lectures and publications, notes of discussions with colleagues, talks at conferences and the like.
Section E brings together drafts and scripts for lectures and publications covering a period of over thirty years, 1949-82, and also including a talk given as an undergraduate to the Cambridge University Natural Science Club.
Section F, Science in the Third World, is of interest for its full record of Pringle's involvement with the International Centre for Insect Physiology and Ecology (ICIPE) at Nairobi, especially as a member of the Governing Board from 1972 (Chairman 1973) to 1978, and a director of research on a major project from 1973. Here too Pringle's sense of history prompted him to assemble his own file of 'early history' as well as a full general record.
Sections G and H are relatively slight and probably do not reflect Pringle's participation in learned societies or symposia. Similarly, Section J, Correspondence, is chiefly of interest for its documentation of the careers of many of the members of the ARC unit at Oxford.
Drafts for published work found in all Sections of the collection have been linked wherever possible to the Bibliography compiled for the Royal Society Memoir and appear in the form (Bibliog. ...). A copy of the Bibliography is reproduced with permission on pp.119-121.
Items at E.101, E.110, E.111 represent material published or intended for publication which is not listed in the Bibliography.

LECTURES AND TEACHING MATERIAL  [no ref. or date]

Contents:
Nearly all this material consists of drafts, notes and related material for lectures, and instructions for demonstrations and practical work for the Honour School of Zoology, particularly the biology preliminary courses 1962-80. Pringle sometimes gave a collaborative course with colleagues (see CSAC 117.8.86/C.5) and teaching by others is also represented (see CSAC 117.8.86/C.7, CSAC 117.8.86/C.11 and CSAC 117.8.86/C.20). His non-university teaching is represented at CSAC 117.8.86/C.6, a course on introductory biology for the British Biophysical Society's summer school in molecular biology and biophysics, September 1966.
Pringle often added to, rejected and rewrote his teaching material to update it, e.g., CSAC 117.8.86/C.18, where material has been gathered over a period of years.
Unless otherwise stated, notes and drafts are in typescript.

The Unit was the main focus of Pringle's research into muscular contractility. He first sought ARC support in 1963 and the Unit was formed in 1966 with Pringle as Honorary Director. He 'recruited a team of biochemists, a physiologist, a chemist, two zoologists, a physicist and an engineer' (Memoir, p.543). Pringle gives short accounts of the work in his papers for the ARC (C.28, C.33) and in his valedictory lecture as Linacre Professor (C.183).

NEW ZOOLOGY LABORATORY  [no ref. or date]

Administrative history:
The material was received from the Oxford University Archives after the rest of the papers relating to Pringle's Oxford period had been catalogued. It relates exclusively to the planning and building of the new Zoology Laboratory and related controversies.
Pringle was offered the Linacre Chair of Zoology in December 1960; he accepted in June 1961 after prolonged negotiations with the University Registrar. He did so on the understanding that the building of a new Zoology Laboratory would begin in 1964 and that Professor Sir Alister Hardy was retiring early so that his successor might plan new developments from the outset. Difficulties arose over the site (half an acre in the Parks) and the design of the laboratory (a twenty-seven storey tower) and these come to a head in Congregation in June 1962 when the decree confirming the site was lost; a second decree approving the building could not therefore be put to the vote. Pringle responded three days later by presenting to the Vice-Chancellor (A.L.P. Norrington) and the Registrar a plan for the University to purchase Merton playing fields as a site for laboratories. In August Pringle, a Fellow of Merton, persuaded the Governing Body that 'if the University would commission an independent investigation of the needs for science by Sir William Holford and he recommended the use of the houses along the south of South Parks Road and the playing fields, then the College would sell them to the University'. The University agreed to this but Holford was not able to report quickly and Pringle gradually became convinced during the Michaelmas Term that there was a lack of determination in the University to act in respect of the new Zoological Laboratory. Accordingly, Pringle, with the assistance of A.L.P. Norrington (now retired from the Vice-Chancellorship), prepared a long letter to Council in which he sought public confirmation of the University's intentions. At the same time he prepared an account of the affair for the national press and let it be known that he was leaving for the United States of America on 4 December 1962. It was on this day that the new Vice-Chancellor (W.F. Oakeshott) made a statement in Congregation along the lines requested by Pringle.
Sir William Holford presented his report in the following May and on 18 June his recommendation that the Science Area should expand across South Parks Road onto the Merton land, was accepted by Congregation. The design of the new laboratory began again from scratch with a new architect (Sir Leslie Martin). By October 1970 the laboratory was ready for staff to move in and the official opening took place the following July.

Contents:
The material has been presented in the following way. C.51-C.154 are a chronological sequence of committees, some university, for example the Committee on Requirements and Sites, and some departmental, for example the Zoology Department Building and Services Sub-committee. They cover in total the period 1960-72 and are interspersed with several of Pringle's 'historical' files, for example 'J.W.S.P. New Building Campaign' (C.77-C.91) and 'New Laboratory (third attempt)' (C.92-C.98). C.155-C.181 form an alphabetical sequence (by topic) relating to equipment, laboratory design, the move to new premises, and so on. C.182-C.184 are miscellaneous items.

CICADAS  [no ref. or date]

Contents:
Pringle used the cicada as an experimental animal for his research on insect song and on insect flight muscles. His visit to Ceylon in January to June 1953 was important in enabling him to record many species of cicada and assemble data on their songs and habits (D.14-D.16 above and D.30). He continued to work and publish on the subject, though his interest was focussing increasingly on flight muscle. He intended to concentrate on active research on cicadas in his retirement, as can be seen from the correspondence below of 1980-1982, but his illness and death supervened. His last letter on the subject (to M. Boulard, at D.33) is dated 10 August 1982; Pringle died in November.

LECTURES  [no ref. or date]

Contents:
The material presented here covers a period of over thirty years, 1949-80. There is one significantly earlier item: the draft of a lecture which Pringle gave to the Cambridge University Natural Science Club during his time as an undergraduate 1931-34 (E.1, perhaps also E.91, E.92).
Pringle lectured to a wide variety of academic and non-academic audiences in Britain and overseas, principally on insect flight, although there are examples of his exploring more general topics such as 'The two biologies' in his inaugural lecture as Linacre Professor at Oxford (E.15) or 'Limits of scientific knowledge', also to an Oxford audience (E.34). Of interest also is his undated speculative talk on evolution to the Ratio Club (E.94). Unfortunately no material survives of Pringle's Croonian Lecture at the Royal Society in 1978 (Memoir, pp.544, 545).
Pringle usually typed his lecture scripts himself, sometimes adding notes or corrections in manuscript. There are a few drafts or notes in manuscript only and these are indicated in the catalogue entries.
For lectures and other teaching material at Cambridge and Oxford, see Sections B and C. For further material on some of the conferences where Pringle gave lectures or talks, see Section H. See also Section D for Pringle's drafts for lectures and papers incorporated in his research notebooks.

The Ratio Club, on informal cybernetics discussion group meeting in London, had been started in July 1949, following a talk by K. Lorenz at Cambridge on animal behaviour. Gold and Pringle were founder members and Pringle put forward Turing's name at the first meeting. Turing gave a talk on December 1950 on 'Educating a digital computer' and in February 1952 another on morphogenesis, of which A.V. Hodges (Alan Turing: the Enigma, 1983, p.466) writes that 'John Pringle took up the idea as a basis for his discussion of the origin of life in the primordial chemical soup, in a lecture later in 1952'. The 1952 lecture was published as Bibliog. 1953a.

SECTION F SCIENCE IN THE THIRD WORLD  CSAC 117.8.86/F.1 - F.262  [n.d.]

Administrative history:
Pringle spoke and wrote about his involvement in science in the Third World on a number of occasions, e.g. to a history of science group (probably at Oxford) in 1976 (E.160, F.6), during his stay as visiting professor at the University of Guelph, Ontario, in 1978 (E.71) and in his contribution to Insect Biology of the Future (1980), a volume prepared as an eightieth birthday tribute to V.B. Wigglesworth (E.121-E.123, F.204A). These accounts, and the Memoir, have been drawn upon here.
Although Pringle had visited the tropics in connection with his own research - particularly his visits to Ceylon (Sri Lanka) in 1953 and later to Trinidad - he credited P.M.S. Blackett with arousing his interest in Third World science, through the 1955 Presidential Address to the British Association in Dublin and then in 1967 when Pringle attended the conference of Commonwealth scientists which Blackett organised. Pringle had been especially interested by a contribution to the conference by Professor Goma of the University of Zambia on the difficulties of pursuing scientific research in developing countries, and it was with Africa, and particularly East Africa, that Pringle became increasingly involved.
Pringle's first contact with science in East Africa was The Serengeti Research Institute, Tanzania. An association between the SRI and N. Tinbergen had led to the Oxford University Department of Zoology becoming ex officio a member of the Scientific Research Council and Pringle represented the Department at a meeting of the Council in January 1970. Subsequent developments at the SRI are outlined in Pringle's 1976 talk and a small amount of correspondence, committee papers and reports illustrative of this connection is listed at F.240-F.262.
The most important of Pringle's East African involvements, however, was with the International Centre for Insect Physiology and Ecology at Nairobi and ICIPE material represents by far the greater part of the documentation of Third World science in the collection. In his accounts, Pringle pays tribute to the independent and simultaneous initiatives in 1969 of C. Djerassi of Stanford University and T.R. Odhiambo of the University of Nairobi which led to the setting up of an international centre for insect research at Nairobi with Odhiombo as its first Director. Pringle, who had been enthusiastically in favour of the project from the outset, joined the Governing Board in 1972, becoming Chairman the next year - a position he retained until 1978.
One of the distinguishing features of the organisation of research at ICIPE in its early years was the appointment of honorary directors of research. These directors were usually professors of biology or chemistry in western countries charged with directing parts of the research programme; they undertook to visit Kenya once or twice a year. Pringle was asked to become a director of research and assumed responsibility for work on the African armyworm (Spodoptera exempta), a plague insect like the locust. A project grant was provided by the British Ministry of Overseas Development for equipment and salaries and research started in 1973 and continued under Pringle's direction for six years, investigating such matters as flight capability and orientation, reproductive behaviour and population diversity. In his review of armyworm research in Insect Biology in the Future, Pringle concluded by nothing that the research work was 'an example of the interesting scientific problems that arise from the study of an insect pest'. Pringle maintained an interest in ICIPE affairs until his final illness.

INTERNATIONAL COMMITTEE OF ICIPE/ICIPE FOUNDATION  [no ref. or date]

Administrative history:
At a meeting of the International Committee in Washington D.C., August 1976, seven national academies, including the National Academy of Sciences and the Royal Society, resolved to establish an international foundation to support ICIPE. The Foundation defined its objectives as (1) acting as a link between the international scientific community and ICIPE; (2) giving when requested advice on scientific activity and training objectives; (3) fund raising. A General Assembly which met once a year served as the decision-making body of the Foundation while a Council of three members acted as the executive body.

NATIONAL RESEARCH DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION, 1964-75  [no ref. or date]

Administrative history:
In 1964 Pringle wrote to P.M.S. Blackett that 'we have recently learnt how to prepare from insect flight muscle a system of protein fibres which function in vitro as a direct converter of chemical to mechanical energy'. After discussion with N.R.D.C., a provisional specification for a patent was filed on 28 May before the discovery was demonstrated to a meeting of the Physiological Society on 6 June. Pringle then began work to develop 'a piece of apparatus which would convert the fibre oscillation into a rotary movement'. By November he had 'nearly completed working out a comprehensive hypothesis about the nature of the mechanochemical energy conversion'.
It was later (April 1965) decided to abandon the patent as no 'practical form of mechanical device which embodies the principle involved' had been developed. However, Pringle published 'The contractile mechanism of insect fibrillar muscle' (Bibliog. 1967a), a review of the subject.
In 1969 R.H. Abbott of the Oxford ARC Unit has developed 'an interface and system for direct on-line control of the Solartron JMI600 Transfer Function Analyser from a Digital PDPB computer', but after initial discussions it was decided that there was no financial advantage in licensing the development.
