Note Compiled by Jeannine Alton
The assembling of the material, and the compilation and production of this catalogue, have been made possible by a generous subvention from THE LEVERHULME TRUST
The completion of this Catalogue of the personal papers of Sir John Kendrew is a significant event in the work of the National Cataloguing Unit for the Archives of Contemporary Scientists, both in the nature of its subject matter and in the manner of its achievement.
This is not the only occasion on which we have undertaken the task of working on the papers of a living scientist. But it is the first time that an opportunity has been taken to examine such a large collection at a time when the subject was retiring from his major scientific and academic commitments, and was still available to guide us in our analysis of its contents. We are extremely grateful to Sir John for his ready co-operation in this task.
The project has also been significant because it has provided an excellent opportunity to engage the experience and expertise of Mrs Jeannine Alton, the former Executive Director of the Contemporary Scientific Archives Centre. It is difficult to imagine how the task could have been completed within the time available to us without the dedication of Mrs Alton. All researches in the history of molecular biology will be greatly in her debt.
Finally, the project could not have been tackled without the generous and understanding help of the Leverhulme Trust. On behalf of NCUACS I would like to record our gratitude to the Director, Sir Rex Richards, and the Trustees of the Leverhulme Trust, for their support.
Thanks are due primarily to Sir John Kendrew for initially allowing his papers to go forward for cataloguing, and for his continuing invaluable interest in the process. He has made himself freely available for consultation at every stage and placed his almost total recall at the disposal of the compiler. At his instance, Dr. R.G. Parrish and Professor J. Wyman have also made relevant material available from their own records.
Professor Sir David Phillips has kindly given advice and information and helped to identify material on the joint Royal Institution - MRC Unit research.
Dr. E.A. Leedham-Green of Cambridge University Archives and Dr. R.W. Lovatt of Peterhouse have helped with information on Kendrew's Cambridge years.
Members and former members of the staff of the Department of Western Manuscripts Bodleian Library and of NCUACS have been unfailing sources of information, advice and encouragement.
Hazel Gott has faced the processing and revising of the catalogue with remarkable resilience and aplomb.

Administrative history:
John Cowdery Kendrew was born on 24 March 1917. His mother, Evelyn Sandberg, was a distinguished art historian; she lived in Italy and the boy was brought up by his father Wilfred George Kendrew, tutor of St. Catherine's and Reader in Climatology at Oxford University. They lived in Oxford and also at Bladon near Woodstock; walking and cycling expeditions were frequent, with early interests in natural history, birds and flowers, buildings and (later) photography. Kendrew was educated at the Dragon School Oxford (1923-1930) and Clifton College Bristol (Scholar, 1930-1936), of both of which he became a Governor. In 1936 he went to Trinity College Cambridge as a Major Scholar. While his main subject was chemistry he made it his business to profit as widely as possible from the range of subjects available; he studied and attended lectures in physics, mathematics and biochemistry, taking the last two as half-subjects in Part 1 of the Tripos. He kept up his skills as a photographer and added a growing love of music; these, with architecture and archaeology, remain permanent features of his life. In June 1939 he graduated with First-Class Honours in chemistry and immediately began research in reaction kinetics in the Department of Physical Chemistry. By December 1939, following up an undergraduate interest in radio developed in the Signals Unit of the Cambridge OTC, he was appointed as a Junior Scientific Officer at the Air Ministry and worked first on radar and from 1940 on operational research with special reference to anti-submarine warfare, bombing accuracy and radio aids. Most of his war service was spent abroad, in Cairo with Middle East Command and then in India and Ceylon with South-East Asia Command where he was officer in charge of operational research and Scientific Adviser to the Allied Air Commander-in-Chief, holding the honorary rank of Wing Commander.
Wartime travels and encounters were to have major effects on his future career. J.D. Bernal, met in Cairo, India and Ceylon, persuaded him of the importance of research into protein, and this was reinforced by a meeting with L.C. Pauling in the course of a roundabout journey home via Australia and America in the spring of 1945. Though he hesitated for some time and explored the possibility of remaining in Government service to continue operational research and planning for peacetime policies, he decided to return to Cambridge, and began a collaboration with M.F. Perutz under the direction of Sir Lawrence Bragg at the Cavendish Laboratory.
Thus began a heroic period: in Kendrew's career and in those of his collaborators, in the subject of research - X-ray crystallographic analysis of protein structure -, in the Cavendish Laboratory and the University of Cambridge. In October 1947 the Medical Research Council set up a Unit for the Study of the Molecular Structure of Biological Systems with Perutz and Kendrew as its total staff; this was the origin of the now famous Laboratory of Molecular Biology, currently more spaciously housed than in the cramped quarters and huts where such brilliant work was achieved in the 1950s. After exploring many possible problems and materials Kendrew chose myoglobin and in particular sperm-whale myoglobin as the most suitable for analysis by X-ray crystallography; he and his collaborators eventually succeeded in producing a three-dimensional model at a resolution of 6-Å in 1957 and 2-Å in 1959. This long and often tedious haul, requiring much manual experimentation as well as increasingly sophisticated computing resources to handle large amounts of data, was rewarded when he shared the Nobel Prize in Chemistry with Perutz (who had continued to work on haemoglobin) in 1962, that annus mirabilis when F.H.C. Crick and J.D. Watson (both of the MRC Unit) shared the Prize in Physiology or Medicine with M.H.F. Wilkins for the determination of the structure of DNA.
Alongside the laboratory work, Kendrew had maintained his links with university life principally through Peterhouse which had welcomed him during the early postwar years as a Research Fellow 1947-1953 and later as a Supernumerary Fellow. He was Director of Studies in Natural Sciences for many years with responsibility for selection and tuition of undergraduate members, as well as holding several College offices. He later became an Honorary Fellow of Peterhouse, as also of his undergraduate college, Trinity.
To this period also belongs Kendrew's marriage to Elizabeth Jarvie 1948 and subsequent divorce 1956. J.D. Watson, who was under Kendrew's supervision as a research student, lodged at their home during his early days in Cambridge.
From about the late 1950s Kendrew became more involved in scientific matters in the wider world. He was a founding member and first Honorary Secretary of the British Biophysical Society; in 1959 he undertook the Editorship of the new Journal of Molecular Biology which he retained until 1987; he was Deputy Chief Scientific Adviser Ministry of Defence 1960-1963; and he served on committees and advisory boards of the Royal Society where he had been elected to the Fellowship in 1960. With the award of the Nobel Prize this involvement gained momentum and an altogether new dimension in international terms with the development of the European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO) and its Laboratory (EMBL); the first exploratory talks seem indeed to have coincided with the journey to Stockholm at the end of 1962. Here too the way was to be long and hard. The formation of an active international association of scientists working in molecular biology (EMBO) was relatively easily achieved during 1963 and 1964, but the formal funding and organisation of such a body required intergovernmental political agreement and did not come until 1969 when the European Molecular Biology Conference (EMBC) was established by agreement by thirteen West European states. The Laboratory project, which was especially dear to Kendrew, was even longer in reaching an agreement (1973), a secretariat and research programme in place (1974) and a formal opening (1978). In all these developments Kendrew was closely involved, on the Council of EMBO, as Chairman of its Laboratory Committee and later its Secretary-General, as Secretary-General of EMBC, and as Project Leader and first Director-General of the EMBL.
Many other commitments to national and international science policy also belong to these years. In Britain they include service on the Council for Scientific Policy and chairmanship of some of its committees and working parties 1964-1972, service on the Defence Scientific Advisory Council 1969-1974, continuing service on the Council and other committees of the Royal Society and on other learned societies in particular the British Biophysical Society and the Institute of Biology. Examples of increasing involvement in international science and scientific policy can be seen in his appointment as Governor of the Weizmann Institute Israel 1964 and the Vice-Presidency and Presidency of the International Union of Pure and Applied Biophysics 1964-1972.
During the 1960s Kendrew continued his research on myoglobin, refining the resolution to 1.4-Å and determining the co-ordinates of virtually all the 2500 atoms in the molecule. In the later 1960s however his other commitments increasingly absorbed his time and energy and his official move to Heidelberg as Director-General of EMBL in 1975 marked the end of active research. The creation of the EMBL as a physical entity and more importantly as an international centre of excellence where several teams and research projects could co-exist and collaborate was a lasting achievement. In addition, or in consequence, Kendrew's diplomatic skills, mastery of detail and experience in chairmanship made him constantly in demand on a wider stage. He served, often as chairman, on the scientific councils or advisory boards of laboratories or research institutions in Naples, Basel, Brussels, Stockholm, Heidelberg and others, on various UNESCO committees, and on many electoral boards for honours and appointments in Britain and abroad. His formal association with science at the international level may be said to have culminated in his service with the International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU) as Secretary-General 1974-1980 and President 1983-1988.
Kendrew's original contract of secondment from the Medical Research Council and appointment as Director-General of the EMBL was renewed twice, until 1982 when he retired on reaching the age of 65. His last appointment brought him back to Oxford as President of St. John's College until 1987. Since then he has lived in his house near Cambridge, maintaining his connections or continuing active involvement with many organisations, notably as Past-President and Member of the Executive Board of ICSU, as Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Joint Research Centre of the European Economic Communities, and other international associations.

SECTION R BIOGRAPHICAL NCUACS 11.4.89/R.1-NCUACS 11.4.89/R.51
The material is very extensive and provides information not only on virtually all aspects of Kendrew's own career but on many of the individuals and organisations connected with it. The papers are presented as shown in the List of Contents. Additional explanatory notes or information accompany the separate sections and many of the sub-sections and individual entries in the body of the catalogue. The following paragraphs are intended only to draw attention to material of particular interest.
It should be said at the outset that the entire collection reflects on almost every page what are probably the best-known features of Kendrew's personality: on the one hand his methodical and analytical power, his meticulous not to say obsessive insistence on accuracy and comprehensive documentation, shown in his lifelong interest in record-keeping and the devising of recondite systems for information storage and retrieval; on the other hand, an aloofness or elusiveness of temperament which sets certain limits to personal relations. There are a steadiness and control, a detachment combined with seemingly tireless application which constitute a formidable intellectual armoury and which are present from the earliest records.
Thus, Section A (Notebooks, Notes and Essays) though mainly covering early school and undergraduate work 1930-39 is remarkable for its maturity and for the quantity and quality alike of the content. It is classified under a system of Kendrew's own devising which, though intrinsically clear and flexible, involved careful pagination with at least two referents, and an appreciable measure of cross-referencing in order to amalgamate school and university work; as there are some 9000 manuscript pages of notes, not counting notebooks and essays, the degree of labour required would not have been contemplated, let alone undertaken and carried through, by many. A modern historian of intellectual or educational development will be grateful for the scrupulous indexing of topics, the very full notes of lecture courses and the careful identification of lecturers. The latter included most of the leading figures in Cambridge science immediately before and after the Second World War and some visiting lecturers (J.E. Lennard-Jones, F.W. Aston, R.G.W. Norrish, E.K. Rideal, F.P. Bowden, J.A. Ratcliffe, W. Cochran, F.G. Hopkins, M. Dixon, F.G. Mann, W.J. Pope, D.D. Woods, J. Needham, A. Neuberger, D Keilin, K. Bailey, I. Langmuir may be cited among very many others). The total sequence therefore provides an exceptionally comprehensive picture of the education available at that time at a well-run school science department and a major "science" university.
Section B (Second World War) chronicles Kendrew's overseas service and contributions to operational research, and contains original reports from various commands by him and others. It also includes several letters or private reports on his analysis of the war situation at various dates, of the current and future state of operational research and of his own career plans, his suggestions and proposals for the postwar organisation of government science, and a punched card, designed by him, to be used by aircraft patrol crews to record incidents.
Section C (Research) is one of the major components of the collection and furnishes a very full record of Kendrew's research, including some of his collaborators' work. It is concerned almost entirely with protein structure analysis, beginning in 1946, and includes the devising of computer programs to handle and process data on machines of progressive sophistication (EDSAC I, EDSAC II, Mercury, IBM 7090 and others), the many years of experimentation with types of myoglobin until in December 1952 sperm-whale emerged as the most promising crystal source, and the ensuing protracted sequence of diffraction pictures, phase determination, scaling, manual and computer calculations leading up to the establishment of contour maps and the final three-dimensional picture at successive Angström resolutions. There is also material on the concurrent and subsequent work on amino-acid sequencing by chemical methods in correlation with the crystallographic analysis. In addition to the main sequence of notebooks, notes and data, there is material relating to specimens, apparatus and models, and correspondence with collaborators and colleagues extending over more than twenty years. The progress of the work can thus be followed in great technical detail. On a more immediately accessible level, there are reports, project diaries, summaries of experimental findings, charts of progress, work-allocations and the like written from the bench or in correspondence throughout the period, and covering key points such as the identification of the best crystalline protein, the excitement of the eventual syntheses and their publication. Attention is drawn to these and other items of interest in the introduction to Section C and at various points in the body of the text.
Section D (The MRC Laboratory Cambridge) is a relatively short section, but contains correspondence on the new building and its extension conducted by the Director M.F. Perutz, and some material on equipment and staff. There are also agendas, minutes and research proposals for Laboratory Board meetings, and a full record of committee meetings of Kendrew's own Structural Studies Division from 1969 (no.1) until his secondment to Heidelberg in 1975.
Section E (Cambridge: University and College) is another short section and does not fully reflect Kendrew's work as lecturer and teacher, or his committee service at Cambridge. His own extremely detailed notes on entrance and scholarship examinations for Peterhouse and the "King's Group" of colleges in the 1950s are again of interest for the history of education.
Sections F, G and H are all devoted to the history of European molecular biology and constitute another major component of the collection, covering twenty years 1962-82. The extent of the material made it expedient to present it in separate sections for the Organisation EMBO (Section F), the Conference EMBC (Section G) and the Laboratory EMBL (Section H). A general introduction to the topic and to the material has been prepared as well as the specific introductions preceding each section. As has already been stated, Kendrew was closely involved in the movement from its earliest inception; he held high office in its key committees and secretariat and was also active in several channels of the science policy establishment in Britain such as the Council for Scientific Policy and the International Relations Committee of the Royal Society. His unique place at or near the centre of events makes his record of special value in several regards. It is remarkably complete and contains the early history or "founding papers" of all three European bodies, many of them in the form of manuscript or informal letters exchanged with distinguished colleagues throughout Europe as well as in Britain where the Cambridge MRC Laboratory itself provided the first Chairman of EMBO, M.F. Perutz, and many founder members such as S. Brenner, H.E. Huxley, F.H.C. Crick and A. Klug. In addition, the first Secretary-General of EMBO, J. Wyman, has at Kendrew's request made over his own papers and correspondence on the subject for incorporation in the present collection. All aspects of the European molecular biology movement are thus covered: negotiations, discussions and agreements at personal, official, national and international level; research projects, membership and elections; buildings and staffing; budgets, costings and funding - made dangerously unpredictable for the laboratory project by the global inflation and fluctuating European exchange rates in the 1970s; and as time advances a proliferation of committees and working parties. The element of doubt, unfavourable comment and hostility is not neglected; the efforts of founder members to keep the project alive by personal contacts is evident in many contexts. Kendrew's own notes of discussions, planning and problems at all stages are of the greatest interest, especially for the laboratory project; Section H also includes documentation of his own career at EMBL.
Sections J and K are concerned respectively with UK and with international societies and organisations. Each has an alphabetical list of contents and most of the items have a descriptive entry or introductory note. Of special interest in Section J are the "founding papers" of the British Biophysical Society, papers of the Council for Scientific Policy including those of the Working Groups on molecular biology, on the proposal for EMBL and on the Dainton and Rothschild reports on the organisation of research, and the Council's Standing Committee on International Relations. There is also a full record of the High Energy Particle Physics Review Group chaired by Kendrew, and material relating to various committees and sub-committees of the Royal Society. Correspondence with W.L. Bragg and others at the Royal Institution provides useful links with Kendrew's research career during the myoglobin project; material for the Design Research Unit shows him in an unexpected role in the 1940s submitting ideas for industrial and design applications of scientific advances.
On the international scene (Section K) there are records of Kendrew's extensive service on the councils or advisory boards of institutions and laboratories and of their research programmes - examples among others are the Basel Institute for Immunology, the Laboratory of Molecular Embryology Naples, the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft Munich, the Molecular Biology Department Free University of Brussels, the United Nations University Tokyo - and good documentation for his long and continuing association, begun in 1963, with the Weizmann Institute Israel. The international scientific unions are represented by Biochemistry (IUB) and Pure and Applied Biophysics (IUPAB), but chiefly by the International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU) which remains one of Kendrew's most important commitments and in which he held high office from 1974.
Section L (Lectures, Publications, Reviews) was considerably expanded at a late stage in the compilation of the catalogue by Kendrew's decision to include his folders of lectures and talks 1946-1987. These appear as addenda and have been extensively cross-referenced to related material, conferences, invitations and other events elsewhere in the collection. They contain many more lectures than previously available and include substantial courses given in America and Japan, and various special invitation lectures.
Section M (Journal of Molecular Biology) has been treated separately from other publications because of Kendrew's long involvement with the journal as Editor-in-Chief from its inception and as a Director of Academic Press. Once again there are "founding papers", careful notes and analyses by Kendrew, and miscellaneous material on the fortunes and vicissitudes of the journal and its publishers over a time-span of thirty years.
Section N (Visits and Conferences) is not extensive and is far from reflecting the extent of Kendrew's travels. His notoriously peripatetic existence becomes apparent by the accumulation throughout the collection of references to journeys in connection for example with European molecular biology, or on behalf of ICSU and its constituent unions, or the official visits for the Council for Scientific Policy, or the regular visits and meetings at other laboratories and institutions.
Sections O, P and R are all short sections. Section O (Correspondence) is not extensive since Kendrew kept almost all his correspondence in the files or notebooks to which it related. One touches here on the reticent element in his temperament; the correspondence is open and friendly yet rarely develops into long-term exchanges. Section P (References and Recommendations) covers a long period and is international in range; some is subject to restricted access. Section R (Biographical) contains some interesting material on Kendrew's career and appointments, including many offers of posts in Britain and abroad. Unsurprisingly, it contains little of a personal nature.
It will be seen that the collection comprises material of very different nature and of potential interest in several fields of enquiry. There is the full history of a major scientific discovery as such (the structure of myoglobin) and, in the many research proposals put forward by individuals and institutions including EMBL, examples of how leading scientists saw the key developments in their subject at a particular time. There is material on intellectual training and the diffusion of changing scientific concepts by filtering to a wider public awareness through the educational process at various levels. The international aspects of science can be studied in the organisation, assemblies, membership and evolving preoccupations of the scientific unions and especially of their central body ICSU; while there is exceptional coverage of one field of European co-operation in the history of EMBO, EMBC and EMBL. The material relating to the Journal of Molecular Biology reflects an important aspect of the scientific process: the evaluation and communication of research findings and the criterion of peer-judgment. Of perhaps more specialised interest is the evidence of the scientific contribution to the war effort during the Second World War, seen here in the correspondence and reports on operational research in several fields of hostilities and in the responsibility exercised by people still in their early twenties. It should be recalled that the documents on all these topics include both official papers in the shape of minutes, reports and the like, and also Kendrew's own meticulous notes, drafts and comments which greatly supplement the official material, and background correspondence and discussions which rarely form any part of them.



SECTION H EUROPEAN MOLECULAR BIOLOGY LABORATORY (EMBL)  NCUACS 11.4.89/H.1-H.417  [n.d.]

Administrative history:
The year 1971 can reasonably be taken to mark the official start of EMBL since it saw the appointment of Kendrew as Project Leader and the setting up of a Building Committee and of a Provisional Scientific Advisory Committee. Many of the early planning documents in this section nevertheless go back to 1967, as does some of the political and policy material. There is also, obviously, an inevitable overlap with material involving EMBO (Section F) and EMBC (Section G); examples of such are the original proposals for the Laboratory, the working group on choice of site (predecessor of the Building Committee), the Konstanz meeting on the research programme and the subsequent working parties. Many of the EMBL working groups and committees were a continuation of those first set up by EMBO. Kendrew himself took up residence in Heidelberg only from January 1975. That said, it remains the case that the papers in this Section can be seen to be geared to the Laboratory.
As with the material on EMBO and EMBC, one of the chief sources of interest is the evidence of long-term planning and thought afforded by the early date of many of the documents and letters on all aspects of the Laboratory history; one could mention the setting up of the Scientific Advisory and specialist Committees, the negotiations regarding the establishment of the outstations at Hamburg and Grenoble, the administrative structure, plans and costings of the building.
The very considerable elaboration of the latter are attributable not only to Kendrew's determination to achieve the highest standards of equipment and function but to the historical coincidence of the building of the Laboratory with a period of high and often unpredictable global inflation due primarily to the rise in oil prices. This was an unexpected factor which required several budget revisions and cost-cutting exercises, and which continued as a permanent problem with the varying inflation rates of EMBC member states affecting their relative contributions and also the comparative salary rates for EMBL staff. It was a considerable achievement to have had the building finished to schedule and to budget and incorporating the additional Containment Facility for genetic research.
The concept of the Laboratory had always been crucial to Kendrew. He espoused it from the first informal discussions in 1962 in which Szilard seems to have played an initiatory part, and fostered it with skill through the many vicissitudes of the ensuing decade. His own extensive notes, charts, schedules, discussion memoranda and the like (passim but especially at NCUACS 11.4.89/H.345-NCUACS 11.4.89/H.358) are of special interest in this respect, usually antedating the official documents by a matter of years and showing great foresight in anticipating areas where scientific or political developments were to be encouraged, forestalled or answered. Almost all aspects of the history of the Laboratory may be complemented by reference to these notes.
Kendrew's role as Project Leader and Director-General was an active one. He followed the construction of the Laboratory very closely, supervising its physical growth and furbishment, its inauguration and harmonious relationship with the local community, in surprising detail (NCUACS 11.4.89/H.47-NCUACS 11.4.89/H.49, NCUACS 11.4.89/H.51). Even before this stage, when small research groups were operating in temporary accommodation, Kendrew was very directly involved in planning the administrative structure, and his hand can literally be seen in early drafts for its funding, in documents at all levels from the various scientific and administrative committees as and when they were set up to the constitution of the staff association, in travel claim and leave forms, and in the handsome stationery (NCUACS 11.4.89/H.305, NCUACS 11.4.89/H.308, NCUACS 11.4.89/H.325, NCUACS 11.4.89/H.332). The carbon copies of the Director-General's correspondence at NCUACS 11.4.89/H.370-NCUACS 11.4.89/H.377 are also of interest as a running tally (probably by no means complete) of the routine workload.

FURNISHING AND INTERIOR DESIGN  [no ref. or date]

Contents:
This material is of interest in demonstrating Kendrew's meticulous care for what others might consider matters of minor importance but which he rightly saw as creating a harmonious ambience and a powerful contribution to the laboratory's smooth working. His chief consultants were the Design Research Unit then headed by Sir Mischa Black, working in conjunction with the architects and a small committee from the laboratory, but it is very clear that he took an active personal part in decisions. His memorandum of 12 April 1976 which begins "As you know, I attach great importance to problems of aesthetics and design in the laboratory", indicates the range of his preoccupations in this regard: they include internal and external lighting, floor coverings, sanitary fittings, wall and door colours, furniture and fittings for canteen, library and seminar rooms, direction signs and lettering, stationery, landscaping, soft furnishings, china and cutlery, reading lamps, notice boards and ash-trays.

RESEARCH COMMITTEES AND WORKING GROUPS  [no ref. or date]

Administrative history:
These constitute the main arteries for the scientific activities of the Laboratory, and in chronological terms antedate it. In preparation for the Extraordinary Meeting of EMBC scheduled for October 1971, Kendrew was authorised by the President, H. Voirier, to consult members of the EMBO Council and representatives of national institutions of EMBC members about suitable nominations for a "shadow" (later called provisional) Scientific Advisory Committee (NCUACS 11.4.89/H.56). This first met in October 1971 under the chairmanship of N.K. Jerne, and continued to meet and to advise the EMBC delegates and the EMBL Project Leader (Kendrew) until the coming into force of the Agreement and the formal inception of the SAC in 1974.
The SAC and its specialist Working Groups on Computer Policy, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance and Recombinant DNA had periodical meetings but also maintained regular contact by correspondence and telephone. Its activity included scientific policy, choice of field of research, appointments to the Laboratory and to the SAC, visits to the laboratories and outstations, consideration of reports by staff members or working groups, and any special projects. Great attention was paid to the selection and recruitment of staff members; much of the early correspondence is concerned with recommendations and suggestions for the first appointments, and this continued to be an important regular component of the agenda for SAC meetings.
Once the scientific life of the Laboratory began in 1975 the purchase of equipment led to the creation of the Scientific Purchases Committee, whose documentation (NCUACS 11.4.89/H.103-NCUACS 11.4.89/H.140) is of interest in including the "justifications" for items of equipment requested by members of the scientific staff and submitted for evaluation.
An important source of information for the SAC and the Director-General on current and developing fields of research were small workshops or discussion meetings attended, by invitation, by leading workers in specific topics (NCUACS 11.4.89/H.141-NCUACS 11.4.89/H.151).
Various specialist ad hoc committees were set up from time to time to advise on matters of concern to the research groups of the Laboratory. They are listed under the appropriate Research Division or Outstation.

Related information: For material on the building, equipment and use of the containment laboratory, see NCUACS 11.4.89/H.156-NCUACS 11.4.89/H.177.

Contents:
Concern about potential biohazards in molecular biological research was widely voiced during the early 1970s. A circular letter was sent to Kendrew in June 1974 by C. Weissmann (a cosignatory) for consideration by EMBO Council and by the PSAC and recommending that "these problems be urgently and carefully considered by appropriate EMBO bodies, both in regard to security recommendations and to providing appropriate special risk laboratories within the framework of EMBO, for instance at the Heidelberg laboratory" (NCUACS 11.4.89/H.100). An Asilomar conference on rDNA was held in February 1975, attended by a five-man EMBO delegation and an ad hoc EMBO committee was set up by Council in January 1975 (Chairman: C. Weissmann). See also NCUACS 11.4.89/F.118. The report to EMBC on the Asilomar conference recommended that "a containment laboratory meeting the most stringent specifications. .. should be built within the European Molecular Biology Laboratory."

There were small gatherings of specialists, meeting informally and by invitation to discuss a specific existing or proposed research topic. They were sometimes suggested by the PSAC or SAC as a means of clarifying the state of research and the appropriate level of involvement of EMBL; some were timed to coincide with meetings of the committee, whose members were in any case invited. They had an important function, in the early days in determining the EMBL research programme and subsequently in monitoring and diffusing information about its progress, and are therefore included here as an aspect of its committees and working groups.

CONTAINMENT FACILITY  [no ref. or date]

Administrative history:
Following the recommendation of the ad hoc EMBO committee on rDNA, the Council of EMBL decided at its meeting on 27 November 1975 that research on rDNA should be carried out at the Laboratory. The original plan for cell biology was modified and a new special laboratory was constructed to house the high-risk facilities which conformed to the stringent specifications (later somewhat relaxed) of the German authorities of the Zentrale Kommission für biologische Sicherheit (ZKBS). H.M. Darlow of the Microbiological Research Establishment, Porton, was adviser on equipment, and the architects were KA-Plannungs GMBH.

INSTRUMENTATION DIVISION  [no ref. or date]

Administrative history:
A strong Instrumentation Division had always been an important part of proposals and policy for the Laboratory, and L. de Maeyer was appointed first Head of the Division in 1976. The work of the Division had to remain on a relatively low level during the period of temporary accommodation, but with the completion of the permanent building it was envisaged that nearly half of the whole activity of the Laboratory would eventually be devoted to instrumentation development. To advise on the research and development programme of the Division an Instrumentation Policy Planning Committee (IPPC) was set up in July 1978 (NCUACS 11.4.89/H.184-NCUACS 11.4.89/H.189).
The plans for the future direction of the laboratory after 1982 (see NCUACS 11.4.89/H.265) affected the Instrumentation Division. The changes were described in the EMBL Annual Report 1982 as follows:
"The change of directors at EMBL led to the formulation of a new scientific programme for the next 5-year period which was unanimously accepted by our Council in June 1982. This programme which is discussed later in this report has led to some changes both in the emphasis and the organization of the scientific effort. EMBL is now concentrating on three basic research areas: differentiation, cell biology and structures. Development of technology will be integrated into these basic research programmes as much as possible. The old instrumentation division has therefore been divided into four units so that all supportive technology from mathematics to biology can be associated with the appropriate scientific groups."
The four units were: physical instrumentation, biochemical instrumentation, biological instrumentation, computing and applied mathematics; in 1987 the last two of these were combined as "biocomputing".

OUTSTATION AT DEUTSCHES ELEKTRONEN SYNCHROTRON (DESY) - HAMBURG  [no ref. or date]

Administrative history:
Much of the early correspondence is with K.C. Holmes, then Professor (later Director) of Biophysics at the Max-Planck-Institute for Medical Research, who supervised some of the preliminary research at DESY, acted as EMBL "Gruppenspracher" and as acting part-time head of the outstation until the appointment of H.B. Stuhrmann from October 1976. See NCUACS 11.4.89/H.205 for Kendrew's reference to the early history of the outstation in his speech at the signing of the EMBL/DESY Agreement.
A regular user of the DESY facility was H.E. Huxley who, among others, contributed memoranda and letters on its development and suggestions for changes or improvements.

Contents:
Provision for a synchrotron radiation facility, to be incorporated into the storage ring project of the Deutsches Elektronen Synchrotron (DESY) at Hamburg, had been included in the revised Laboratory proposal of 1970, with the aim of making available an intense source of x-rays for diffraction experiments in molecular biology. It consisted of two "bunkers", the B-bunker later called Bunker II, to be built first, on the synchrotron, and the A-bunker later called Bunker IV, the larger of the two and the permanent outstation headquarters, on the storage ring. The DESY synchrotron had come into operation in 1964 and the double storage ring system (DORIS) was in use from 1974.

OUTSTATION AT INSTITUT MAX VON LAUE-PAUL LANGEVIN (ILL) - GRENOBLE  [no ref. or date]

Administrative history:
The proposal to establish an outstation at Grenoble placed before the European Molecular Biology Conference in October 1971 was based on the importance of neutron diffraction for research in molecular biology; this had first revealed its potential as a result of the commissioning of the high flux reactor at Brookhaven National Laboratory, New York. The development of the reactor at the Institut Max Von Laue-Paul Langevin (ILL) at Grenoble provided an even higher neutron flux which it was desired to make available to European biologists in close connection with the main EMBL at Heidelberg.
For several years the EMBL outstation was housed in rented laboratories at the Centre d'Etudes Nucléaires de Grenoble (CENG) although it had been agreed in principle that EMBL would eventually have its own building; the preferred solution was a shared building with ILL for which a formal contract was signed on 13 December 1979. Work started in November 1980 and was completed in the spring of 1982.
During the early negotiations, Kendrew consulted B.P. Schoenborn who had obtained the first important neutron diffraction results at Brookhaven and who, he hoped, might in due course direct the EMBL outstation should the project come to fruition. In the event Schoenborn remained at Brookhaven and the first head of the Grenoble facility was A. Miller, for five years from 1 September 1975 to 31 August 1980; he was succeeded by B. Jacrot who had been associated with EMBL at ILL from the beginning as Senior Scientist in charge of the Biology Group.

Contents:
The earliest papers preserved here date from June 1971 and form a sequence of correspondence, notes, memoranda and minutes covering the protracted negotiations which are concerned with the basic principle of collaboration between EMBL and ILL (fairly rapidly agreed), delays over the signing of the Laboratory Agreement, budgetary constraints, difficulties over accommodation and buildings for EMBL outstation workers and adequate access for them to ILL facilities, and the political and financial dimensions involved in the UK decision to participate in the ILL project. For these reasons the "early history" covers a somewhat longer period than that of the DESY outstation at Hamburg, the formal Agreement between EMBL and ILL being signed on 18 March 1977.

Library  [no ref. or date]

Administrative history:
The library was regarded by Kendrew as an essential part of the laboratory from the beginning and a librarian (Mrs M. Holmes) was in place from 1975. When the Library Committee was set up in 1976 he took the view (note of 16 November 1976) that the library belonged to the scientific operation of the laboratory and not to the administration, and, since it did not belong specifically to any one of the divisions, that it should come directly under the Director-General.

STAFF ASSOCIATION  [no ref. or date]

Administrative history:
Moves to initiate a staff association began in April 1976 and a Pilot Committee was formed in June to draft statutes (Chairman: N. Strausfeld). This proved a protracted matter, first because the proposed draft was unsatisfactory and was extensively revised by Kendrew when submitted for his scrutiny, and later because of the association's possible affiliation to the German Trades Union Congress with difficulties arising for the international status of EMBL. After considerable comment and re-drafting, the statutes were formally accepted by Kendrew in May 1978 and a Committee elected in September.

ROYAL SOCIETY BRITISH NATIONAL COMMITTEE FOR BIOPHYSICS NCUACS 11.4.89/J.127-NCUACS 11.4.89/J.134

Administrative history:
The first steps towards the foundation of the Society were taken at a joint meeting on 6 March 1959 of the Biophysics and Biophysical Chemistry Sub-committee of the Faraday Society and the International Biophysics Organising Committee (Kendrew attended as a member of the latter). At the meeting it was resolved that the Sub-committee should be re-constituted as a full Committee of Council of the Faraday Society (not a Sub-committee of the Colloid and Biophysics Committee). A working party was set up and met for the first time on 4 February 1960 (Chairman: J.A.V. Butler), when it was proposed that a new Society be formed under the name "The Biophysical Society of Great Britain". Butler continued as Chairman, and Kendrew became the first Honorary Secretary of the Steering Committee (formed from the Working Party). The Steering Committee held 13 meetings between 4 May 1960 (when the name British Biophysical Society was adopted) and 12 December 1961 which was also the first Annual General Meeting. At this latter meeting the Society's rules were approved, and the first formal Committee meeting was held on 21 February 1962. Kendrew continued as Honorary Secretary until December 1962, his successor being D.D. Eley. He served on the Committee 1963-65 and was elected Chairman in 1964 until February 1965 when he resigned because of pressure of other commitments, being succeeded by M.H.F. Wilkins.

COUNCIL FOR SCIENTIFIC POLICY (CSP)  [no ref.]  1964-72

Administrative history:
The Council was set up in 1965 by the Department of Education and Science (DES) as a result of the Committee of Enquiry into the Organisation of Civil Science HMSO Cmnd 2171, 1963 (the Trend Report). Its purpose was "to advise the Secretary of State for Education and Science in the exercise of his responsibilities for the formulation and execution of Government scientific policy". It originally had fourteen members drawn from the universities and industry, with assessors from the Research Councils and the University Grants Committee, and was serviced by the DES.
The CSP began its activities in January 1965, working primarily through ad hoc working groups and committees, some being joint or collaborative, and its two Standing Committees, on International Scientific Relations and on Human Resources in Science and Technology.
Kendrew was a member of CSP from its inception, his terms of service being periodically renewed until the work of CSP came to an end in 1972. The first Chairman was Sir Harrie Massey, succeeded from January 1970 by F.S. (later Lord) Dainton. Kendrew was Deputy Chairman from 1969, and Chairman of the Standing Committee on International Scientific Relations (ISR); he chaired or was a member of many of CSP's working groups, as itemised at NCUACS 11.4.89/J.27- NCUACS 11.4.89/J.66.
Many of the projects on which CSP was asked to advise involved international co-operation in various fields, including molecular biology. The EMBO/EMBC/EMBL organisations and proposals were thus under frequent discussion as well as being the subject of specific working groups.

Working Party on the Proposed European Laboratory for Molecular Biology  [no ref. or date]

Contents:
The Working Group was created on an initiative of Sir Harrie Massey, Chairman of CSP (NCUACS 11.4.89/J.50) and formally set up on 6 December 1968 "to consider what should be the UK attitude to the EMBO proposal for a European laboratory; and to report to the Council for Scientific Policy". The Chairman was Sir Harrie Massey and the members were J.B. Adams, J. Baddiley, J.H. Humphrey, A. Neuberger, M.G.P. Stoker and H.W. Thompson; Kendrew was an "assessor", and there were assessors from the Medical Research Council and the Science Research Council. The Working Party's report (March 1970) recommended UK participation subject to further examination of the scientific programme, costing and site, and the report was accepted by the Council at its meeting on 20 March. In December 1971 a Working Group was set up with S.L. Bragg as Chairman and J.G. Collingwood, P.B. Hirsch, R.R. Porter and M.G.P. Stoker as members "to consider the UK contribution to a European Molecular Biology Laboratory in the light of (i) the proposed scientific programme and (ii) the revised cost estimates; and to report to the CSP". Its report indicated support for the laboratory, subject to a reduction in costs and this was accepted by the Council at its meeting in January 1972. After subsequent further discussions on costings and research, the Council finally submitted to the Secretary of State in May its recommendation that the UK should take part in the establishment of the Heidelberg laboratory and its outstations at Hamburg and Grenoble.

Working Group on research organisation ("Dainton Report")  [no ref. or date]


Related information: See Preparatory Group: Green Paper NCUACS 11.4.89/J.65, NCUACS 11.4.89/J.66.

Contents:
The Working Group was set up in October 1970 under the Chairmanship of F.S. Dainton "to advise the Secretary of State, through the Council for Scientific Policy, on the most effective arrangements for organising and supporting pure and applied scientific research and postgraduate training". The other members were T.L. Cottrell, Kendrew, P.E. Kent and A.W. Merrison. The report of the Working Group was submitted in May 1971; among its recommendations were the retention of the Research Councils and the replacement of the CSP by a new advisory body responsible to the Secretary of State (now the Advisory Board for the Research Councils).
In 1971 the Government commissioned a report from Lord Rothschild, Head of the Central Policy Review Staff, on Government research and development; this was submitted in October 1971 and recommended the "application of customer-contractor principle to all applied research and development". The two reports, by Rothschild and Dainton, were published together in November 1971 as a Green Paper "A Framework for Government Research and Development" (Cmnd.4814). In an introductory memorandum, the Government, while welcoming the recommendations of both reports, announced its intention "to allow time for wide public debate and to discuss the issues involved with the scientific community".

Working Group on high flux neutron research  [no ref. or date]

Contents:
The Working Group was set up on 4 June 1971. The Chairman was A.W. Merrison and the members were P.B. Hirsch, Kendrew and R.G. West. The original terms of reference were "to examine the effect on the science budget of the proposals for high flux neutron beam research contained in the Science Research Council's Forward Look; and to report to the Council". These were later broadened (September 1971) "to consider the future provision required for high flux neutron beam research, with regard particularly to the relative costs, advantages, and implications for the future of the alternative courses of building a UK reactor or of taking a full share in the European reactor programme; and to advise the Council on these and any other relevant aspects".
After several meetings June 1971 - January 1972 the Working Group was unable to reach a consensus and confined its report to Council to the terms of its original remit on financial feasibility.

HIGH ENERGY PARTICLE PHYSICS REVIEW GROUP (HEPP)  [no ref.]  1983-85

Administrative history:
The review group was commissioned jointly by the Advisory Board for the Research Councils (ABRC) and the Science and Engineering Research Council (SERC). Kendrew was chairman of the Group, whose terms of reference were:
"(i) to review UK participation in the study of high-energy particle physics, with particular reference to that necessarily carried out under international auspices;
(ii) to consider possible future involvement, the role and extent of international collaboration, and the implications of reallocation of the resources in whole or in part to other areas of science."
The formation of the review group was announced by the Secretary of State for Education and Science (Sir Keith Joseph) on 22 March 1984. Two meetings of the HEPP Support Group were held on 9 April and 23 November 1984 and the Review Group itself had fifteen meetings (19 April 1984 - 14 May 1985) in various locations, and considered written submissions. The report, published in June 1985, recommended that Britain should remain a member of CERN until 1989 but subsequently only if significantly lower costs could be achieved.

Contents:
The material constitutes a full record of the activities of the review group, including preliminary discussions, chairman's notes and briefings, minutes and papers of meetings, drafts and amendments of the report, submissions of evidence, correspondence with colleagues and officials throughout the period of the enquiry and following the publication of the report, press comment in UK and abroad (not all favourable) etc. Many documents bear Kendrew's notes, comments and annotations.

MINISTRY OF DEFENCE  [no ref.]  1960-74

Contents:
In April 1960 Kendrew was asked by S. Zuckerman, then Chief Scientific Adviser to the Minister, to accept a post as part-time Scientific Adviser for two days a week, and after various negotiations this was agreed in April 1961. In 1963 he resigned the appointment in order to devote more time to his scientific research, while continuing to serve as an independent member on panels and committees such as the Defence Research Committee.
Throughout this period Kendrew remained a member of staff of the Medical Research Council and was therefore deemed by the Treasury to be in government employment and hence not eligible for fees (other than expenses) for his work for the Ministry even though the latter was unconnected with his scientific specialism. Kendrew felt that this created a situation not only anomalous but inequitable vis-à-vis University colleagues involved in similar work, and attempted to argue the case, but without success, the Treasury decision being termed by a colleague in the Ministry "a deplorable piece of jiggery-pokery" (NCUACS 11.4.89/J.100).

QUEEN ELIZABETH HOUSE OXFORD (QEH)  [no ref.]  1982-86

Administrative history:
Queen Elizabeth House was an independent foundation established by Royal Charter in 1951 to encourage Commonwealth studies and visits by members of the Commonwealth, and to provide links with the University of Oxford, members of the Governing Body being appointed by Her Majesty's Government and by the university. In 1983 the Overseas Development Administration announced its intention to withdraw its financial support after March 1984, and various possibilities were discussed for the future activities and funding of QEH. A committee was set up by the university in March 1983 at the request of the Governing Body to consider the future of QEH and an agreed plan was evolved to merge QEH with the two University Institutes of Agricultural Economics and Commonwealth Studies to create a centre for development and international studies and agricultural economics.
Kendrew was co-opted as a member of the Governing Body of QEH in December 1982, his appointment being renewed in June 1986 until July 1987 when he retired as President of St. John's. At this time the President of the Governing Body was Lord Trend (later succeeded by Sir Zelman Cowen) and the Warden of QEH was A. Hazlewood. The early period of Kendrew's service coincided with the difficult transitional phase in QEH's affairs. He chaired a Working Party set up by the Governing Body in November 1983 to conduct a financial review and make suggestions for future activities in the light of the proposed merger.

Contents:
The material includes letters and memoranda addressed to Kendrew personally, and relevant committee and discussion papers. Other committee and background papers are held in the Archives of the University.

ROYAL INSTITUTION  [no ref.]  1954-68

Contents:
Kendrew was a Reader at the Davy Faraday Research Laboratory 1954-68. At this time the Fullerian Professor of Chemistry and Director of the Royal Institution was Sir Lawrence Bragg who had been Cavendish Professor of Experimental Physics at Cambridge 1938-53 and thus head of the Cavendish Laboratory during the early years of molecular research there including the work on DNA by Watson and Crick, and the start of the MRC Unit and the protein analysis by Perutz and Kendrew.
On his move to London, Bragg was much concerned to launch a productive research programme at the Davy Faraday Laboratory and made strenuous efforts during 1954 and 1955 to persuade Kendrew to move there, preferably full-time, to head a protein group. He made several approaches to Kendrew and also to MRC. Kendrew, however, preferred to remain based in Cambridge as an MRC staff member, and maintaining his college connection. Instead he accepted a Readership and conducted a close collaborative research programme on protein analysis (in which Bragg as a crystallographer had a particular interest), principally with D.C. Phillips and his team. There was frequent interchange of visits, specimens, data and results between the London and Cambridge laboratories, culminating in joint publications. The correspondence on research projects and progress preserved here should be consulted in conjunction with the much fuller complementary documentation in Section C.

British National Committee for Biophysics  [no ref. or date]

Administrative history:
At an International Biophysics Conference held in Cambridge in July 1959, plans were made for an International Congress on Pure and Applied Biophysics to be held in Stockholm 30 July - 5 August 1961 under the Presidency of Sir Gordon Sutherland. The General Assembly at the Stockholm meeting approved Statutes for an International Organisation for Pure and Applied Biophysics which required that in each member country "a National Committee on Biophysics shall be formed".
The Provisional British National Committee was set up by the Royal Society in June 1962, Kendrew being one of the four members representing the British Biophysical Society (NCUACS 11.4.89/J.13, NCUACS 11.4.89/J.14); he was also appointed a member of the Special Commission on Molecular Biophysics at the meeting of the International Organisation in Vienna in April 1962. The Provisional Committee met at the Royal Society on 6 July 1962 under the Chairmanship of A.V. Hill and resolved to apply "for adherence on behalf of the United Kingdom to the International Organisation for Pure and Applied Biophysics"; the application was formally approved by the Council of IOPAB in November 1963.
At the Second General Assembly of IOPAB in Paris in June 1964 Kendrew was elected Vice-President and served in that capacity on the Provisional British National Committee from June 1964. The Assembly also decided to apply for membership of ICSU and this was approved at the ICSU General Assembly in Bombay in January 1966; henceforth the International Organisation was known as the International Union of Pure and Applied Biophysics (IUPAB) (NCUACS 11.4.89/K.46-NCUACS 11.4.89/K.52) and the Provisional British National Committee was established as the British National Committee for Biophysics.
In December 1966 the Council of the Royal Society appointed Kendrew as a representative to serve on the British National Committee and to be its Chairman for six years from 1 January 1967; the first meeting of the Committee under his chairmanship was on 25 November 1968.
Kendrew was elected President of IUPAB at the General Assembly at Boston in August 1969, and became Honorary Vice-President 1972-75. He was succeeded as Chairman of the British National Committee from 1 January 1973 by D.C. Phillips but remained an ex officio member as Honorary Vice-President of IUPAB until 1975.

INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL OF SCIENTIFIC UNIONS (ICSU)  [no ref.]  1974-88

Administrative history:
This was one of Kendrew's most important commitments. The high offices he held in the organisation over a considerable period of time kept him in touch with international science at a political as well as a research level, supplemented by extensive travel and first-hand knowledge of projects and personalities worldwide, and by his representative presence as adviser, governor, trustee etc. of many other institutions.
Kendrew was Secretary-General of ICSU 1974-80 and was elected its First Vice-President in September 1982. In October 1983 he became President a year earlier than expected on the resignation of D.A. Bekoe who had accepted the post of Director of the UNESCO Regional Office for Science and Technology in Africa.
As Secretary-General Kendrew attended the biennial General Assemblies and the regular meetings of the Executive Board and Standing Committees, and also undertook special commissions or journeys on behalf of ICSU.
The Secretariat of ICSU is currently based in Paris (Boulevard de Montmorency) where its records are retained. The material preserved here relates only to those projects or activities with which Kendrew was especially involved, and includes manuscript material, correspondence or notes additional to the official records.

China and Taiwan  [no ref.]  1975-83

Administrative history:
The admission of scientists from the People's Republic of China into membership of the "ICSU family" of constituent Unions, and of China as a national member of ICSU, was a source of prolonged difficulties arising from the position of Taiwan and the attendant political and diplomatic consequences. Some of the Scientific Unions devised solutions for Chinese representation in their membership, a draft resolution was presented to the ICSU General Assembly in 1980, and the Committee on Structure and Statutes considered the problem at several of its meetings. The ICSU Handbook 1988 lists under "National members" both the China Association for Science and Technology Beijing and The Academy of Science located in Taipei Taiwan.

Administrative history:
Informal meetings of European scientists were held on 26-27 June 1963 (under the title "Informal WHO meeting on research development in chemical mutagenesis and toxicities") and 29-30 November 1963 (under the title "WHO Informal meeting of scientific advisers on special research development"). A report was prepared and accepted by the Executive Board of WHO in January 1964. It was expected that the WHRC would concentrate its research programme on epidemiology, communications science and technology, and biomedical research. The siting of the WHRC, and the development of research in molecular biology through EMBO and its proposed laboratory, were not determined at this time.
Kendrew was one of the advisers involved from the start of the project and contributed ideas on organisation, costs and research projects based on early discussions of the EMBO group. Most of the correspondence is conducted with M.M. Kaplan, Special Adviser on Research Development, WHO.

SECTION L LECTURES, PUBLICATIONS, BROADCASTS  NCUACS 11.4.89/L.1-L.149  [n.d.]

Administrative history:
Kendrew's published output is not particularly large. He accepted the scholarly requirement to publish and to give public presentations of his research, and was in practice not only a conscientious but an accomplished lecturer. He preferred, however, to lecture from notes, with or without illustrative slides, and found preparing a manuscript for publication an uncongenial task and one that, to meet his own high standards, demanded more time than could be spared. Many of his invitation lectures remain unpublished and he sometimes made it a condition of his acceptance that he would not be required to produce a manuscript. He was furthermore under the constant and increasing obligation to attend and address conferences, to write, report and speak on EMBO/EMBL matters, to make formal presentations to committees and councils of many organisations, to produce official reports and to give semi-formal introductions, speeches and the like for and at EMBL; many of these writings survive elsewhere in the collection. Not surprisingly, Kendrew found himself obliged to decline very many additional invitations to lecture (NCUACS 11.4.89/L.74-NCUACS 11.4.89/L.77) or to write or review (NCUACS 11.4.89/L.141-NCUACS 11.4.89/L.144).
Kendrew participated in, or advised on, frequent radio and television programmes, usually on his and Perutz's research or more generally on the work of the Cambridge MRC laboratory. His major series of television lectures became the basis of his book The Thread of Life; he repeated the series in German for Bayerische Rundfunk, and also made several broadcasts in Italian for the BBC and for the Italian RAI.

The correspondence with publishers and editors (NCUACS 11.4.89/L.99-NCUACS 11.4.89/L.140) may deal with Kendrew's own published papers or reviews but also includes some more extended exchanges with publishing houses, notably with Academic Press, Endeavour and Nature. His principal editorial responsibility was for the Journal of Molecular Biology (Academic Press) which has been treated separately in Section M.
ADDENDA: LECTURES 1946-87 (NCUACS 11.4.89/L.145-NCUACS 11.4.89/L.149)
This material, made available for the collection at a late stage in the compilation of the catalogue, comprises Kendrew's notes, or sometimes his fully-written texts, for lectures or talks. They are held in loose-leaf binders of the same type as those used for the myoglobin and other research notes in Section C, and kept in chronological order with subdividers between each year or couple of years. They include lectures to college, institutional or university societies in Cambridge and to professional and learned societies in Britain and abroad, contributions to conferences, and many special invitation lectures or lecture tours particularly in America. The topics are usually some aspect of protein analysis, molecular biology or, later, European collaborative research; occasionally a more general theme is sounded in informal talks at Peterhouse, and very rarely some personal reminiscences may be included.
The addenda are thus of considerable value, not only in greatly enlarging the perceived corpus of Kendrew's work as lecturer and speaker but also in complementing correspondence, notes and other documentation in several other sections of the collection. The relevant cross-references are given wherever possible.

The Thread of Life: an introduction to molecular biology, London 1966, reprinted 1967, 1968.  NCUACS 11.4.89/L.31-L.49  [n.d.]

Administrative history:
The book was based on a series of ten lectures delivered on BBC Television. The programmes were recorded at the Royal College of Surgeons of England between 25 November and 4 December 1963, transmitted weekly from 4 January to 7 March 1964, and repeated in July 1964. A German version, "Der Faden des Lebens", was recorded by Kendrew in Munich in August 1964 for Bayerische Rundfunk, and repeated January to March 1966.
In January 1964, when the TV series was first announced, Kendrew was approached by G. Bell & Sons Ltd. about an adaptation for publication in book form, and this eventually appeared in June 1966. The German version was published by Nymphenburger Verlagshandlung Munich in 1967.
The book was very successful. An American edition from Harvard University Press appeared in 1966, and there were translations in Japanese, Hungarian, Danish/Norwegian, Polish, Russian and Spanish.

Administrative history:
This was the Herbert Spencer Lecture 1965-66, given in Oxford 17 November 1965. On the occasion of the lecture, Kendrew used a fully-written text for the opening and closing sections but left the centre portion in note form to be accompanied by slides. He did not complete the writing-up, but in 1966 was asked to contribute a paper to a Festschrift for L.C. Pauling and offered the Herbert Spencer Lecture. This was accepted, the incomplete portion of the text being written up by the editors and revised by Kendrew. The paper, under the same title, appeared in Structural Chemistry and Molecular Biology: A volume dedicated to Linus Pauling by his students, colleagues and friends ed. A. Rich and N. Davidson, W.H. Freeman & Company, 1968.

SECTION M JOURNAL OF MOLECULAR BIOLOGY  NCUACS 11.4.89/M.1-M.37  [n.d.]

Administrative history:
INTRODUCTION
In June 1957 Kendrew was asked by K. Jacoby, then Vice-President of Academic Press Inc. New York, to undertake the editorship of a new journal; the first provisional title was Journal of Molecular Biophysics but by August 1957 this had been changed to Journal of Molecular Biology, which it has remained. On receipt of the invitation Kendrew canvassed colleagues on both sides of the Atlantic for their views on the necessity and scope of such a publication in order to assure himself of firm professional support, as well as seeking agreement from his college and from the Medical Research Council to his taking on the additional responsibility. By March 1958 a distinguished Editorial Board had been formed, consisting of P. Doty, A.F. Huxley, R.L. Sinsheimer and M.F.H. Wilkins, with Kendrew as Editor-in-Chief; an Advisory Board was in process of formation with a letter of intent sent to leading scientists in the field. Meanwhile, Kendrew characteristically involved himself with the practicalities of publication, and such matters as format, layout, typeface, printing conventions, cover design and colour were discussed at length with Academic Press before Volume I No.1 of the journal appeared in May 1959. These "founding papers" are preserved at NCUACS 11.4.89/M.1, NCUACS 11.4.89/M.2.
After some initial difficulties, mainly attributable to printing delays, the journal soon fulfilled all expectations and became the leading publication in its field, so much so that by 1964 its size had become a matter of concern to editors and publishers (NCUACS 11.4.89/M.8-NCUACS 11.4.89/M.10). The peak year of production was 1974, after which the numbers of papers submitted, and of subscriptions, somewhat declined until a re-organisation and decentralisation of its editorial policy took place in 1979-80 (NCUACS 11.4.89/M.13, NCUACS 11.4.89/M.14, NCUACS 11.4.89/M.25). The membership of the editorial board had always been drawn from international leaders in the relevant research topics, and the journal was greatly respected. Correspondence with many of the distinguished editors on the early stages, rapid expansion and subsequent changes of the journal is included in the sequence at NCUACS 11.4.89/M.3-NCUACS 11.4.89/M.19.
Kendrew was sole Editor-in-Chief from the initiation of the journal until 1 April 1961 when S. Brenner was appointed Assistant Editor. From 1 January 1985 Kendrew and Brenner were joint Editors-in-Chief and from 1 September 1987 Brenner was sole Editor-in-Chief.
Material relating to Academic Press is of several kinds. The first contacts were with its American Vice-President, K. Jacoby, and with C.M. Hutt, the Director of the UK office opened in 1959; in later years other directors, principally R.A. Farrand, Hutt's successor in the London office, were involved with the affairs of the journal. In 1969 Academic Press Inc. merged with Harcourt Brace, which from 1973 added the name of its President W. Jovanovitch. During the 1980s Harcourt Brace Jovanovitch took a more active hand in the running of its London office, with very considerable consequences for the personnel and policy of Academic Press; some of these can be seen in the sequence at NCUACS 11.4.89/M.20-NCUACS 11.4.89/M.28. In June 1968 Kendrew himself had been invited to become a director of the firm at a nominal annual fee of £50, and he remained so until March 1988 when he was removed from the Board following a shareholders meeting. In his capacity as editor and director he often advised on various publication projects (NCUACS 11.4.89/M.29-NCUACS 11.4.89/M.31, see also NCUACS 11.4.89/L.102).
It should be noted that the Journal of Molecular Biology was launched, and continued to be edited, from Peterhouse Cambridge until 1975 when Kendrew ceased to be a Fellow of the college and office premises in Cambridge were obtained.

SECTION N VISITS AND CONFERENCES  NCUACS 11.4.89/N.1-N.71  1951-86

Contents:
The chronological sequence at NCUACS 11.4.89/N.1-NCUACS 11.4.89/N.60 gives only a partial picture of Kendrew's actual attendance at conferences and meetings and the concomitant travel. A high proportion of his activities entailed frequent travel and references to such will be found passim throughout the collection; as examples, one could cite the regular meetings of EMBO, EMBC and ICSU, the official visits with the Council for Scientific Policy, and the meetings of the many international organisations or societies with which Kendrew was connected in a personal or representative capacity.
A separate sequence at NCUACS 11.4.89/N.61-NCUACS 11.4.89/N.71 comprises the numerous invitations 1961-86 which Kendrew was unable to accept. While some of these are relatively summary, others, especially in the 1960s, involve major invitations to undertake lecture tours or courses or accept Visiting Professorships. In later years, Kendrew often accepted invitations to attend, speak or chair sessions at conferences only to find himself obliged to cancel at a late stage. Material of both these kinds is of interest because of its extent and because of the correspondence to which it sometimes gives rise.
The notebook at NCUACS 11.4.89/C.128, added to the collection at a late stage, contains much supplementary material on conferences attended by Kendrew, in particular those referred to at NCUACS 11.4.89/N.14, NCUACS 11.4.89/N.17, NCUACS 11.4.89/N.19, NCUACS 11.4.89/N.20, NCUACS 11.4.89/N.29.
The notebooks at NCUACS 11.4.89/L.145-NCUACS 11.4.89/L.149, also a late addition, are of special interest not only in preserving the texts of lectures or talks given by Kendrew at conferences but in adding to the tally of meetings which he attended.
