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 manuscript papers of Sir David Phillips is a significant event in the work of the National Cataloguing Unit for the Archives of Contemporary Scientists. Like all such large-scale cataloguing projects it has had a long gestation. Indeed it may almost be said to have had its origins in the earliest days of the NCUACS's Oxford-based predecessor organisation. Sir David has taken an active interest in the scientific archives project since its inception in 1973 and Mrs Jeannine Alton who has now catalogued the Phillips papers for the NCUACS was in charge of the archives work in Oxford from 1973 until the transfer of operations to the University of Bath in 1987. The more immediate impetus for the Phillips cataloguing project, however, was Sir David's resignation in 1990 from his Professorship of Molecular Biophysics at Oxford University to assume the full-time Chairmanship of the Advisory Board for the Research Councils in London. The imminence of his departure from Oxford led to discussions with Sir David about the very substantial archive in his Oxford laboratory, a detailed archival assessment of their quantity, nature and importance for a wide range of aspects of the history of science, and the development of a funding proposal for submission to the Leverhulme Trust. We were very fortunate to secure funding from the Trust for two years with an extension for a third year as the science policy interest of Phillips's career took on a greater archival importance than had originally been anticipated. Sir David has been supportive throughout with advice and encouragement and Mrs Alton's expertise and experience has magnificently met the challenge of difficult technical material, the complexity of UK and international science organisation and the piecemeal delivery of papers over an extended period.
The NCUACS would like to take this opportunity to record our gratitude to the Director of the Leverhulme Trust, Sir Rex Richards, and the Leverhulme Trustees for their support of the scientific archives work since the transfer of operations to Bath in 1987. This has taken the form of three major cataloguing projects: the papers of Sir John Kendrew (1987-1989), Sir David Phillips (1991-1994) and Professor Dorothy Hodgkin OM (1992-1994). The three collections are deposited in the Bodleian Library, Oxford where they form an indispensable corpus of material for the history of twentieth-century British science.

Administrative history:
Sir David has kindly contributed the following autobiographical sketch. The original is included at A.74.
Autobiographical sketch, February 1994.
I was born on 7 March 1924 in Ellesmere, Shropshire, a small country town on the border between England and Wales. My father, Charles Harry Phillips, was a Master Tailor and a Methodist local preacher. My mother, Edith Harriet Phillips, was the daughter of Samuel Finney, one-time Secretary of the Midland Miners' Federation and Member of Parliament 1916-22: she was a London-trained midwife, the organist at Ellesmere Methodist Church and long a member of the Ellesmere Urban District Council. My unusual middle name is the maiden surname of my mother's great grandmother and it is a reminder of the family myth that we are related in some way to the Pilgrim Father, James Chilton.
A key influence on my development came from my father, who was a very academically-inclined, thoughtful person who attempted to join the Wesleyan Methodist Ministry but failed, he always said, because his written sermon was not good enough. His extempore sermons, which he constructed in his head while he was sewing, were certainly powerful enough and I have sometimes wondered whether this background affected my own preference for speaking from rudimentary notes, or none at all.
But the more formal academic influence came from my mother's side of the family. Her father was also a Methodist local preacher, this time Primitive Methodist, who taught himself New Testament Greek and his youngest daughter, my aunt Kathleen, went to Manchester University to read English. She married D.A.R. Clark, an engineering graduate of Manchester Tech (UMIST as it now is) who became a Technical College teacher, rising to be Principal of Middlesborough and then Nottingham Technical Colleges.
These members of the family were important influences but even more important were my mother's cousins, J.F. and A.H. Bagnall. These were the sons of my grandmother's brother Joe, who worked as a Post Office clerk in Manchester and was again a Primitive Methodist local preacher. Jack and Herbert both went to Manchester Grammar School. Jack went on to read engineering at Manchester Tech while Herbert won a scholarship at St Edmund Hall, Oxford, read Greats and ended as classics master at Exeter School. Of the two Jack was the Influential figure. He went to work in India in the late twenties and used to come home on leave every three years. These were among the most memorable events in my childhood. This larger-than-life figure would descend on Ellesmere in a large car and waft us about the countryside exuding a great air of confidence and full of stories about the hardly dreamed of world out there. It was he, I believe, who instilled in me the thought that anything was possible.
The Bagnalls seemed the dominant family in my early life. In addition to my grandmother, Mary Ellen, and her brother Joe there were three other brothers, Ted, Sam and Will, all local preachers, who had escaped from Ellesmere and lived respectively, when I first remember them, in Blandford Forum, Birmingham and Stroud. Ted and Will were both Liberal Party election agents and Sam worked, I believe, for the Shropshire Union Canal Company. His only son, Howard, read chemistry at Birmingham University and became City Analyst of Birmingham - another role model, though not as charismatic as his cousin Jack.
My formal education was at the Church of England infants and elementary schools in Ellesmere and at the High School for Boys at Oswestry, some eight miles away on the Cambrian Railway. In 1942 I took Higher School Certificate in Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics, with subsidiary French and was awarded a State Bursary to study Physics, Mathematics and Radio Communications at University College, Cardiff, one of the constituent colleges of the University of Wales, where I took a war-time degree in June 1944. I then joined the Royal Navy for training as a Radar Officer, being posted to H.M.S. Illustrious in the Spring of 1945.
After demobilisation in February 1947, I returned to Cardiff where I was awarded First-Class Honours in Physics in 1948 and began research in X-ray crystallography under the supervision of A.J.C.Wilson. As a graduate student I analysed the structures of ephedrine and one of the polymorphic forms of acridine and I played a part in developing the statistical tests for crystal symmetry that were devised in this period out of Wilson's work on the probability distribution of X-ray intensities.
After taking my PhD in 1951, I joined the National Research Laboratories, Ottawa, Canada, as a Post-doctoral Fellow in the Crystallography Laboratory led by W.H. Barnes. First as a Post-doctoral Fellow (1951-53) and then as a member of the Research Staff (1953-55), I continued studies of the three-dimensional structures of relatively small molecules, extending the analyses to involve the use of three-dimensional data, developing the method of photographic data collection and introducing the use in Ottawa of digital computers - in collaboration with F.R. Ahmed, whom I helped to recruit.
In 1955, on the suggestion of Dorothy Hodgkin, I was invited by W.L. Bragg to join the Research Staff of the Royal Institution, London, where Bragg was building up a team to work on protein crystals. On leaving Cambridge in 1954, Bragg had hoped to attract members of the Medical Research Council Research Unit at the Cavendish Laboratory (M.F. Perutz and J.C. Kendrew) to move to the Royal Institution with him, but they preferred to remain in Cambridge where their studies of haemoglobin and myoglobin had begun to develop well. They agreed to help Bragg, however, by collaborating with his new team in London. Consequently, on moving to the Royal Institution, I began to collaborate with J.C. Kendrew in his studies of myoglobin while at the same time collaborating with U.W. Arndt on the development of X-ray diffractometers. I used a semi-automatic four-circle diffractometer to measure some of the X-ray data that were used in the low-resolution analysis of the structure of sperm-whale myoglobin that was completed in 1958, and then went on to devise (with Arndt) an automatic diffractometer that incorporated an analogue computer - the Linear Diffractometer - while, at the same time, collaborating with Kendrew in extending the myoglobin analysis to high resolution. In this stage of the myoglobin work, the crystals were prepared at the Royal Institution (by V.C. Shore) and they were photographed partly in London and partly in Cambridge. The photographs were densitometered in the two centres and the final sets of data were assembled in Cambridge. The 2Å-resolution map of myoglobin - the first protein structure to be determined - was calculated in the autumn of 1959 and published in 1960.
The Linear Diffractometer was developed commercially by Hilger & Watts Ltd and was used in a number of subsequent crystallographic studies: C.C.F. Blake and I used the laboratory prototype, constructed by T.H. Faulkner in the Royal Institution workshop, to collect data to 1.4Å resolution for sperm-whale myoglobin. These data were used in a preliminary refinement of the structure at Cambridge in the period 1962-64, though the problem at this stage was beyond the power of current computers.
It was in this period, in 1960, that I married Diana Kathleen Hutchinson, who was Bragg's secretary, and we had our only child Sarah Anne, born in 1962.
In 1960, Roberto Poljak came to the Royal Institution as a post-doctoral worker and suggested that work on hen egg-white lysozyme might be successful-a proposal based upon his preliminary search for suitable heavy-atom derivatives at MIT under the guidance of Howard Dintzis, a myoglobin veteran. At this stage, I turned my attention to lysozyme and - with Bragg's encouragement - focused the greater part of the Royal Institution effort on the determination of its structure. In 1962 a promising low-resolution (6A) map of the enzyme was obtained - whereupon Poljak left the Royal Institution to work on genetics at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge. At the Royal Institution, in collaboration particularly with A.C.T. North, C.C.F. Blake and V.R. Sarma, I concentrated on extending the analysis to high (2A) resolution and, at the same time, I initiated crystallographic studies of complexes between the enzyme and competitive inhibitors related to its substrate. These studies were carried out in collaboration with my research student, Louise N. Johnson.
By the use of the Linear Diffractometer, now fitted with three detectors, and an in-house Elliott 803 computer provided by the Medical Research Council, these studies led to the calculation of a readily-interpretable electron-density map of the enzyme early in 1965 and the proposal of its mechanism of action about a year later.
During this period of excitement arrangements were also being made for Bragg's retirement aged 75 and, as the result of proposals by Dorothy Hodgkin, J.W.S. Pringle and H.A. Krebs, I was offered a Professorship of Molecular Biophysics at Oxford. With the active support of the Medical Research Council, led by Sir H. Himsworth, I was able to take with me the greater part of the research group at the Royal Institution, with lecturerships for North and Blake, and to set up a new Laboratory of Molecular Biophysics. The laboratory was associated with the Department of Zoology, headed by Pringle, and plans were agreed to house it in the new Zoology building that was then being designed.
We moved to Oxford in September 1966, being housed initially in the Old Physiology Building. In addition to the group from the Royal Institution I also recruited to University Lecturerships Drs A. Miller and R.E. Offord from the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge. Miller worked on fibrous proteins and muscle while Offord was a protein chemist so that, with North and Blake providing single-crystal expertise and with backgrounds, respectively, in physics and chemistry, we formed a reasonably well-balanced group to help extend studies of protein structure and function in Oxford. Louise Johnson rejoined us as a Departmental Demonstrator in 1967, after a post-doctoral year at Yale.
In Oxford, I envisaged the Laboratory as a group of independent but closely interacting research teams led by the University Lecturers and myself. In particular, I attached great importance to having a lively protein chemistry group within the laboratory to interact with the structure analysts at all stages of their work from the identification of problems for research to the consideration of results and how best they might be developed in a biological context. Three of the four original University lecturers (North, Offord and Miller) left over the years and were replaced by L.N. Johnson, A.R. Rees and D.I. Stuart, of whom Rees also left for a Professorship elsewhere towards the end of my period in Oxford.
Studies of lysozyme were continued, partly to develop new methods, but a major part of the effort, especially in the early years, was aimed at at detailed understanding of the enzymes in the glycolytic pathway. My part in this was the determination of the structure of triose-phosphate Isomerase together with substrate and inhibitor binding studies that revealed the structural features underlying the catalytic mechanism. This research programme also involved scientists in other Departments in Oxford who collaborated as members of the Oxford Enzyme Group of which I was one of the founders. The group was chaired initially by Sir Rex Richards and, under his leadership, concentrated on the development of NMR spectroscopy as applied to biological problems in parallel with the continuing development of X-ray crystallography - especially in the analysis of protein mobility. I became Chairman of the Group in 1984.
Also in collaboration with members of the Enzyme Group, and encouraged by Rodney Porter and Edward Abraham, in the 1980s I concentrated more on studies of immunoglobulins and B-lactamases and, through discussions with F. Brown, I stimulated David Stuart's successful analysis of the structure of Foot-and-Mouth Disease Virus.
In 1974 I was appointed a member of the Medical Research Council and the founder Chairman of the Cell Biology & Disorders Board, one of the subsidiary Boards that was set up in a general reorganisation of the Council's operating structure in that year. I served as Board Chairman until 1976, during which time the most significant events were, probably, the continuing discussions with the Departments of Health (of England and Scotland) regarding the transfer of funds from the MRC to the Departments following the Rothschild Report of 1972, and the review of the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology at the time of M.F. Perutz's formal retirement. This review led to the Phillips Report which proposed some re-balancing of the programme of work at LMB but successfully headed off those who were then criticising what they saw as the Council's over emphasis on Molecular Biology. I continued as a member of the MRC until 1978 and was subsequently the Royal Society assessor on the Council until 1983.
In 1976 I was elected Biological Secretary and vice-president of the Royal Society and served in those capacities until 1983. During this time I played a part in abolishing the Society's longstanding small-grants scheme and replacing it with a scheme for the support of University Research Fellows which was designed to ensure the long-term support of highly-talented young scientists in advance of their obtaining academic appointments. Another activity was the preparation of evidence for Parliamentary Select Committees on a variety of subjects one of which, on the provision of scientific advice to government, may have had an influence on my next appointment. In this report the Society criticised the Advisory Board for the Research Councils and recommended that the Board should be reconstituted with a part-time chairman able to give two days a week to the task.
In January 1983 I was appointed Chairman of the Advisory Board for the Research Councils (ABRC) on the terms proposed by the Royal Society report, for a four-year term of office. The appointment also carried with it ex-officio membership of the Advisory Council for Applied Research and Development (ACARD) and, subsequently, of its successor body the Advisory Council on Science & Technology (ACOST). This continued until mid-1993. I was also involved from time to time in the discussions of Official Committees, whose duties are to prepare papers for meetings of Cabinet Committees.
At this time, the ABRC was responsible for advising the Secretary of State for Education and Science on the size of the science budget, which was determined annually as a part of the Public Expenditure round, and how the funds that were made available should be distributed among the five Research Councils, the Royal Society, the Fellowship of Engineering and the Natural History Museum. In addition, the Board conducted or commissioned studies on various aspects of science policy and the state of the science base that were designed to help in the formulation of sound advice.
For example, during my first term of office the Board published studies of 'Future Facilities for Advanced Research Computing'; 'High Energy Particle Physics in the United Kingdom'; the 'Evaluation of national performance in basic research'; 'Private Sector Funding of Scientific Research'; an 'International Comparison of Government Funding of Academic and Academically Related Research'; and 'Contract Researchers in Universities'. All of these promoted useful debate on topics that remained important throughout my chairmanship.
In 1986 I agreed to serve as chairman for a second four year term and, apart from the regular business of the Board in relation to the size and distribution of the Science Budget, this period was dominated by the preparation and publication of two reports. The first of these, entitled 'A Strategy for the Science Base' (1987) addressed fundamental issues in the organisation of university research and provoked a great deal of debate. In particular, the proposition that some universities should expect to be engaged in substantial research activity across the range of fields, while others were engaged in substantial world class research in particular fields and a third group were engaged in the scholarship and research necessary to support and develop teaching, was greeted with outrage. Nevertheless, under the influence of the Research Selectivity Exercise, initiated by the University Grants Committee (UGC) in 1985 and repeated twice since then by the University Funding Council (UFC), together with the abolition of the binary line, which admitted former Polytechnics to University status, a differentiation of universities remarkably like that proposed by the ABRC has emerged. Another major recommendation of the report, that the allocation of responsibilities between Research Councils and Funding Councils within the dual support of university research should be shifted towards the Research Councils, has been accepted by government and implemented; while a further proposal, that interdisciplinary research should be promoted by the establishment of interdisciplinary research centres (IRCs), has also been implemented to a certain extent. Numbers of the other proposals, for example that the Research Councils should develop more explicit policies for the management of research manpower in universities, re-emerged in the White Paper of 1993.
The second major report in this period arose from concern about the way in which support for biology was distributed across the Research Councils. Under the chairmanship of Mr J.R.S. Morris, a study group appointed to address this problem produced a wide-ranging report that proposed a radical reform of the Research Council system. They proposed that a single Research Council should be set up with operating divisions that would cover the responsibilities of the existing Research Councils distributed rather differently so that, for example, the responsibility for nonmedical biology would be concentrated in a single division. According to these proposals, the ABRC was to be replaced by the Council of the single research council with a part-time non-executive chairman and a full-time chief executive.
In the autumn of 1989, the ABRC discussed this report and decided not to recommend its acceptance to ministers. However, they set up a small working party, comprising the heads of the Research Councils and two independent members of the Board under my chairmanship, to propose more modest changes to the existing system. Out of this process came proposals that the ABRC should be reconstituted under a full-time chairman and with a slimmed-down membership comprising the executive heads of the five Research Councils, six independent - or non-executive - members drawn from industry and academe, and two assessors - the Chief Scientific Advisor to the government and the Deputy Secretary with responsibility for the science base in the Department of Education & Science. Specifically, the Chief Scientists from other government departments were to be removed from membership though they were to be guaranteed access to the Board for discussion of issues that particularly affected their departments.
These proposals were accepted by government and the Board was reconstituted from 1 April 1990. I accepted an invitation to be the first full-time chairman for a three-year period.
This reorganisation led to my resignation from my professorship in Oxford, a year earlier than I had expected, and my wife and I moved to London in July 1990. Meanwhile, the University had formally considered the future need for a Professorship of Molecular Biophysics and had agreed that the post should continue. Thanks to the generosity of Sir Edward Abraham, the Professorship was supported by an endowment and, at Sir Edward's suggestion, it was named the David Phillips Professorship of Molecular Biophysics. Shortly after my departure from Oxford, Dr Louise N. Johnson was appointed to the Chair.
After the reconstitution of the ABRC the major benefits arose from changes in procedure that led the heads of Research Councils to play a fuller part in the Board's business and underlined more clearly than before the responsibilities of the Research Councils themselves to support the work of highest priority in their areas of interest instead of looking to government to provide extra resources to cover new scientific opportunities of high priority. This regime continued through the Public Expenditure rounds of 1990 and 1991 alongside a continuing programme of studies, now organised under the aegis of sub-committees of the Board. These included sub-committees of Manpower, Biotechnology, Super-computing and Science Policy, all of which were supported by members of the ABRC Secretariat and generated important reports and discussion papers. In addition, an Inter-Agency Committee on Global Environmental Change (IACGEC) was set up under my chairmanship to co-ordinate the thinking of funding agencies, including the Research Councils, the Met Office, the British National Space Centre, and other government departments - who were represented by the Department of the Environment - on this important and politically prominent issue.
After the General Election of April 1992, the Prime Minister unexpectedly announced a reorganisation of the support for science and technology within government. Responsibility for the Science Budget - but not the Funding Council support for University research - was transferred from the DES to a new Office of Science & Technology within the Office of Public Service & Science under the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, Mr William Waldegrave. The head of the OST was the Chief Science Advisor, Professor W.D.P. Stewart.
Under these new arrangements, the Board continued to operate essentially as before but now submitting its advice on the Science Budget to the Chancellor of the Duchy. Almost immediately, however, the Chancellor announced his intention of publishing a White Paper on Science & Technology in 1993 and the Board spent most of the summer and autumn of 1992 preparing its advice on the nature of this White Paper. This drew quite heavily on the 1987 Strategy Advice, the debates of 1989, which had led to the reconstitution of the Board, and the experience of the reconstituted Board. It was submitted on 30 October 1992 and proposed a revision of the Research Council system closely similar to that proposed in the Morris report.
At about this time, in view of the perceived need to improve co-ordination between the Funding Council and Research Council components of the science base, I was appointed a member of the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and an observer on the Welsh Higher Education Funding Council (HEFCW). These developments took place partly as a result of ABRC initiatives in holding meetings with Funding Council officials in Edinburgh and in Cardiff.
ACOST, of which I was also a member, produced advice in parallel with that of the ABRC with which the ABRC did not agree. It envisaged, for example, a separate Research Council for the advancement of scientific knowledge alongside Councils for mission orientated research. The two sets of advice were presented by the chairman of ACOST and myself to a meeting of OST ministers and senior staff on 3 November 1992 and this was the beginning of a long process of debate and drafting within the OST and government generally that led, on 26 May 1993, to the publication of the White Paper.
Recognising that the functions of the ABRC would have to continue until any changes announced in the White Paper could be put into effect, Mr Waldegrave asked me first to extend my chairmanship until 30 September 1993 and then until 31 December 1993 at which time, under the terms of the White Paper, the ABRC was to be abolished and its chairman replaced by a Director General of Research Councils.
During the period from the publication of the White Paper to the end of the year, I played the part of Acting DGRC and, in particular, conducted an urgent study of the reallocation of resources to the new Research Councils, whose boundaries and missions were closely defined in the White Paper. My advice was accepted by the Chancellor at the end of July and I spent the remainder of the year helping to implement further White Paper decisions and playing a part in the appointment of non-executive chairman and chief executives for the new Research Councils. I retired on 31 December 1993 and Sir John Cadogan took over as DGRC.
In retirement, I remain a non-executive director of Celltech, a position I have occupied since 1982; a Trustee of the Wolfson Foundation (first appointed in 1988); an editor of the Journal Biochemistry; a member of the Davy-Faraday Laboratory Committee of the Royal Institution; and non-executive chairman of Finsbury Communications, the company founded by my son-in-law, Dr Paul Matthewson. Furthermore, I have agreed to be a Governor of De Montfort University and a consultant to North West Water. Finally, I am now engaged, with Sir Rex Richards, In an urgent study for the Department of Health on how research might be safeguarded if the Hammersmith Hospital were transferred to the Charing Cross or the Charing Cross to Hammersmith.

The material is presented as shown in the List of Contents. Additional explanatory notes, Information and cross-references are appended where appropriate to the separate sections, sub-sections and individual entries in the body of the catalogue. The following paragraphs are intended only to draw attention to items of particular interest.
Section A (Biographical and autobiographical), though not extensive, covers in varying detail the principal stages of Phillips's career from schooldays onward: It includes many offers of appointments not otherwise documented as well as the known public honours he received. It also includes several autobiographical accounts prepared by Phillips at various dates; similar occasional accounts occur elsewhere in the collection and attention is drawn to them in the catalogue entries.
Section B (Diaries and notebooks) is of interest for a series of notebooks which constitute a general journal of considerable value in several regards. The books, covering the years 1960-90 (with an unexplained gap from 1976 to 1984), contain Phillips's notes on scientific research projects and progress, Interviews and discussions with colleagues, staff and visitors in the laboratory, salaries, funding and laboratory requirements, aides-memoire on telephone conversations or letters received, drafts for lectures or conference papers, comments on theses or papers sent for comment, notes taken at lectures, seminars or conferences, and in the later years notes of ABRC or Research Council meetings and discussions on science policy.
Section C (Research notebooks and notes) provides records, some by collaborators and not always in full detail, for all stages of Phillips's career from his post-doctoral appointment in 1951 at the National Research Laboratories Ottawa. The material is presented by topic. These include the development at the Royal Institution London (with U.W. Arndt) of the semi-automatic and later of the linear diffractometer, and collaborative work with J.C. Kendrew (later Sir John) and his team at Cambridge on the structure of myoglobin. Phillips's most widely known achievement, the structure of lysozyme and its mechanism of action, on which he continued to work for most of his career, is documented here by his detailed records of the co-ordinates. Later projects at Oxford such as the successful analysis of triose phosphate isomerase (TIM) are also documented.
However, not all Phillips's research career is fully covered by the surviving material in this collection. His activity as a founder member and later chairman of the Oxford Enzyme Group (OEG) can be found in the collection of the OEG papers held in the Bodleian Library, and a detailed record of all stages of the myoglobin project is contained in the manuscript collection of Sir John Kendrew also held in the Bodleian Library.
Section D (The Royal Institution) is relatively short, but contains records not only of the important decade in Phillips's career from his appointment as a Research Fellow in 1956 by W.L. Bragg until his appointment at Oxford in 1966, but also of his continuing involvement with the Institution as Manager, member of Council, lecturer and active participant in its affairs including the award of its Actonian Prize in 1991. For the early period the material is mainly correspondence, on the equipment and research projects referred to in relation to Section C, and on the events surrounding the successful lysozyme analysis. Several of Phillips's long-term colleagues at the Institution accompanied him to Oxford, in particular C.C.F. Blake, A.C.T. North and L.N. Johnson.
The Director of the Royal Institution throughout Phillips's decade there was W.L. Bragg (Sir Lawrence Bragg). Their mutual affectionate regard can be seen both in this Section and passim elsewhere in the collection.
Section E (Oxford) shows Phillips moving to a wider stage. As the University's first Professor of Molecular Biophysics from 1966 he had the responsibility of setting up and running a new department and of establishing the subject as an integral part of Oxford science. There were difficulties to be overcome both before and after the move from London, notably over the status and salaries of the team-members hitherto paid by the Medical Research Council, delays over the promised new Zoology Department building in which the Laboratory was to be housed, and the assurance of continued funding from MRC and other outside bodies for powerful computing capacity and for specific research projects. The Chair also carried with it the obligation to participate in the general administation of the University through faculty and inter-faculty boards, the organisation of syllabuses, teaching and advanced study, appointments and elections to posts in the Laboratory and in the University at large. All these activites are well documented. Phillips's success can be gauged in part from the very large number of requests to work, visit, conduct collaborative projects or consult with him and his colleagues. Many of the documents relating to these matters bear annotations, comments or information from the Laboratory team, since Phillips continued there the practice he had begun on a more limited scale at the Royal Institution of circulating all but personal communications to senior laboratory members, to keep them fully informed of events and to solicit their advice or views.
Although Phillips's Chair carried with it a Fellowship of Corpus Christi College, he did not play a particularly active part in college life, choosing rather to give his time and energy to the scientific world at Oxford and outside.
Section F (Publications) includes some drafts and material for Phillips's own scientific papers, though fewer than might be expected. During his most active research period he was a reluctant writer and rarely kept documentation once a paper was published. His major papers on lysozyme are, however, well documented, especially his 1966 article in Scientific American which was illustrated by hand-drawn diagrams specially commissioned from the artist Irving Geis. This was a rare solution to the recurring problem of presenting three-dimensional results on the printed page, which in the 1960s and 1970s usually Involved red-green diagrams and filter spectacles for the reader.
Also of interest is the extensive material assembled by Phillips for his Memoir of W.L. Bragg written for the Royal Society and published in 1979.
Phillips found time to act as referee or editorial consultant to many publishing houses though he was obliged to decline very many requests to undertake such work. Specialist journals with which he had long connections as contributor, editor or consultant include Acta Crystallographica, Biochemistry, EMBO Journal and Journal of Molecular Biology. The principal publishing houses with which he was involved were IRL Press, Medical and Technical Publishing Company and Oxford University Press. His editorial and advisory work for the Royal Society is documented in Section L.
Section G (Conferences, visits, lectures) is the most extensive in the collection, reflecting Phillips's close involvement in the diffusion of scientific information and his success therein. The time-span covered is 1957-93, including an addendum for items received at a late date. The introduction to Section G describes in more detail the content of the material and its interest as witness to the evolution of Phillips's research, the range of audience addressed, and his gifts as a refreshing speaker on technical and, later, science policy topics.
Section H (Radio, television, films) is very short and not a full record of Phillips's activity in these fields. It does, however, document his work for the Open University, Including a prize-winning film on lysozyme.
Section J (UK societies, organisations, consultancies) records, in varying detail, Phillips's involvement with over a score of such organisations. Attention is drawn in particular to the material on the British Crystallographic Association which includes many of the founding and fund-raising early papers of the Association, the CIBA Foundation which was one of Phillips's major commitments (he served on the Council of the Foundation for sixteen years), and Celltech, an enterprise set up to exploit discoveries in biotechnology.
Section K (International societies, organisations, consultancies), while containing similar material concerning overseas organisations, includes a higher proportion of work on advisory boards or scientific councils of laboratories and institutions relating to their research programmes. Examples are the Basle University Biozentrum, the Committee for the European Development of Science and Technology (CODEST), the Harvard-Monsanto Research Agreement (an experiment in collaborative research between industry and academia), the 'Single-crystal intensity measurement programme' and other affairs of the International Union of Crystallography, the International Union of Pure and Applied Biophysics (IUPAB), the Max-Planck institute of Biochemistry Scientific Council, and the Weizmann Institute Israel.
Section L (The Royal Society) provides useful documentation of Phillips's long association with the Society, notably his service as Biological Secretary 1976-83. It includes work on various committees, sometimes as chairman, overseas visits and delegations, editorial and advisory work for the Society's publications, material on the organisation of the Fellowship and its Sectional committees, elections and awards, and general correspondence of the Society's affairs.
Section M (Science Research Council) is short, relating mainly to the Cray Computer and the Daresbury Laboratory.
Section N (Medical Research Council) is an extensive record of Phillips's service as a Council member 1974-78 and a Royal Society 'Attending Assessor' 1976-83. The introduction to the Section outlines more fully his wide-ranging work for the Council as Chairman of the Cell Board and member of many committees, working parties and delegations such as those set up consider the Cambridge Laboratory of Molecular Biology, the European Laboratory of Molecular Biology (EMBL) and the National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR).
Section O (Advisory Board for the Research Councils) (ABRC) records Phillips's career as government adviser, from his appointment as part-time Chairman of ABRC in January 1983 through his appointment as full-time Chairman from April 1990 (when he resigned his Oxford Chair) to the period following the General Election of May 1992. Immediately after the election, changes were announced in government organisation for education and science which meant that responsibility for science and technology was transferred from the Department of Education and Science (to whose Secretaries of State Phillips had hitherto addressed the ABRC's advice) to the newly-created Office of Science and Technology under the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster. Phillips's extended period of service as ABRC Chairman ended in September 1993, but he remained as acting Director-General of the Research Councils until December 1993.
Section P (Correspondence) is extensive. Always conducted in easy and friendly terms, it is primarily concerned with projects in protein research. It includes useful exchanges with colleagues on myoglobin and lysozyme. There is also further material relating to W.L. Bragg.
Section R (References and recommendations) is also extensive and demonstrates the international respect in which Phillips was held by the many requests for advice or evaluation on appointments from universities and institutions worldwide. There is also a very large number of research grant assessments.

The material is presented as shown in the List of Contents. Additional explanatory notes, Information and cross-references are appended where appropriate to the separate sections, sub-sections and individual entries in the body of the catalogue. The following paragraphs are intended only to draw attention to items of particular interest.
Section A (Biographical and autobiographical), though not extensive, covers in varying detail the principal stages of Phillips's career from schooldays onward: It includes many offers of appointments not otherwise documented as well as the known public honours he received. It also includes several autobiographical accounts prepared by Phillips at various dates; similar occasional accounts occur elsewhere in the collection and attention is drawn to them in the catalogue entries.
Section B (Diaries and notebooks) is of interest for a series of notebooks which constitute a general journal of considerable value in several regards. The books, covering the years 1960-90 (with an unexplained gap from 1976 to 1984), contain Phillips's notes on scientific research projects and progress, Interviews and discussions with colleagues, staff and visitors in the laboratory, salaries, funding and laboratory requirements, aides-memoire on telephone conversations or letters received, drafts for lectures or conference papers, comments on theses or papers sent for comment, notes taken at lectures, seminars or conferences, and in the later years notes of ABRC or Research Council meetings and discussions on science policy.
Section C (Research notebooks and notes) provides records, some by collaborators and not always in full detail, for all stages of Phillips's career from his post-doctoral appointment in 1951 at the National Research Laboratories Ottawa. The material is presented by topic. These include the development at the Royal Institution London (with U.W. Arndt) of the semi-automatic and later of the linear diffractometer, and collaborative work with J.C. Kendrew (later Sir John) and his team at Cambridge on the structure of myoglobin. Phillips's most widely known achievement, the structure of lysozyme and its mechanism of action, on which he continued to work for most of his career, is documented here by his detailed records of the co-ordinates.

SECTION B DIARIES AND NOTEBOOKS  NCUACS 45.1.94/B.1-B.58  [n.d.]

Contents:
NCUACS 45/1/94/B.1-B.19 DIARIES
NCUACS 45/1/94/B.20-B.47 NOTEBOOKS
NCUACS 45/1/94/B.48-B.50 MISCELLANEOUS
The diaries at NCUACS 45.1.94/B.1-NCUACS 45.1.94/B.19 are all hardbacked desk diaries 1972-1989, 1991 (1990 lacking). They are essentially annual records of engagements with entries by Phillips and secretaries, covering all scientific, academic, travel and official aspects of his schedule. Attention is also drawn to NCUACS 45.1.94/A.73 which consists of additional meeting arrangements and planning schedules chiefly relating to ABRC and other official commitments of the 1980s which were originally kept as loose pages in the appropriate annual diary.
The notebooks at NCUACS 45.1.94/B.20-NCUACS 45.1.94/B.47 are a separate sequence of hardbacked, spiral- or ring-bound notebooks 1960-90. Although the early books are in part similar to the laboratory research notebooks in Section C, the content is always more heterogeneous and not confined to work on a specific research topic. Scientific matters, data, ideas and results continue to feature extensively throughout the books, but in the course of time, and with Phillips's evolving responsibilities other material is included and the sequence thus constitutes a general journal of considerable interest. The contents may include: interviews and discussions with colleagues, research students and laboratory staff on research projects and progress; laboratory requirements, preceding and following the move to Oxford; notes of telephone discussions, letters received or to be dealt with; notes on or discussions with visitors to the laboratory; notes or drafts for lectures and conference papers, or on theses and papers sent for comment; notes taken at meetings of lectures, papers, discussions; in the later books, notes of ABRC or research council meetings and discussion on science policy.
The books are kept somewhat informally; most entries (not all) are dated but may be scattered through the book, both ends of which are sometimes used. Occasionally a volume may be devoted to a specific conference or lecture series (NCUACS 45.1.94/B.30, NCUACS 45.1.94/B.34, NCUACS 45.1.94/B.37, NCUACS 45.1.94/B.39, NCUACS 45.1.94/B.40) but this is exceptional. There is a gap in the sequence between 1976 and 1984 which is unaccounted for. The books are presented in chronological order from the earliest identifiable entry but do not necessarily conform to a calendar year.
These notebooks are thus an essential complement to other sections of the collection, in particular C (Research), G (Lectures and Conferences) and O (ABRC). Cross-references have been given, or a mention made in the entry, where possible, but it has not been practicable to do so for all the material.

The material is presented, as far as ascertainable, in chronological order by topic, following the earliest Identified date on the records, though it is recognised that several lines of research were normally proceeding in parallel at different rates of progress.
For archival convenience, notebooks (NCUACS 45.1.94/C.1-NCUACS 45.1.94/C.50) and loose pages or folders of notes (NCUACS 45.1.94/C.51-NCUACS 45.1.94/C.60)are listed separately although their content may be related. Both types of material may include work by collaborators or research students (Identified where possible) as well as by Phillips; this is especially the case with the long-term collaborative projects on myoglobin, lysozyme and triose phosphate isomerase (TIM).
Titles and descriptions in inverted commas are those given on the documents, which are Phillips's work unless otherwise stated.

Myoglobin  NCUACS 45.1.94/C.5-C.15  [n.d.]


Related information: The surviving material relating to this pioneering project in Phillips's own papers is relatively scanty. The correspondence with Cambridge colleagues at NCUACS 45.1.94/C.52 should also be consulted for further information.

Contents:
Phillips headed the group working at the Royal Institution, in collaboration with the team at the MRC Molecular Biology Research Unit in Cambridge, on the analysis of myoglobin by X-ray diffraction. The overall director of the project was J.C. Kendrew, based in Cambridge but also at that time Reader at the Davy Faraday Laboratory.
Visits and exchanges of materials and results were frequent and the project culminated in successful three-dimensional models of myoglobin at 6.A in 1957 and at 2.Å in 1959. Detailed records of every stage of this work can be found in the papers of J.C. Kendrew held in the Bodlelan Library Oxford, which include correspondence and information received from Phillips and the R.I. team.

This was the first enzyme structure to be determined by X-ray analysis, and Phillips's most widely known research achievement. Amid mounting excitement, the model was completed at the Royal Institution in time for Bragg's 75th birthday in March 1965. Phillips gave his first paper announcing the news in April; the more detailed published papers aroused intense and continuing interest. References in correspondence throughout the collection are too numerous to be listed here, but attention is drawn especially to contemporary correspondence with R. Diamond and R.E. Dickerson
The molecule used for the original project at the Royal Institution was hen egg-white; after his move to Oxford Phillips continued to work on the structure of different types of lysozyme, which remained one of the chief topics of research and publication by him and his coworkers.

Contents:
This became one of the principal enzyme analysis projects of Phillips and coworkers at Oxford from the 1970s. The successful structure was first announced by Phillips at a Biochemical Society meeting in Cambridge 9 April 1975 (NCUACS 45.1.94/G.153)and published as a collaborative paper in Nature, 255, 1975 (NCUACS 45.1.94/F.18-NCUACS 45.1.94/F.20). Many subsequent collaborative papers on TIM were published; I.A. Wilson and P.S. Rivers are the chief collaborators whose work remains with that of Phillips in the present collection though there are frequent references to others.
All the material is in spiral-bound notebooks, and consists of hand-written notes, tables of coordinates, sequences, active sites, some notes of meetings, discussions, drafts or summaries for papers.

SECTION D ROYAL INSTITUTION (RI)  NCUACS 45.1.94/D.1-D.16  [n.d.]

Contents:
Much of Phillips's most important research, and the foundation of his career, were achieved at the Royal Institution, where he was appointed as a Research Fellow by W.L. Bragg from January 1956 and which he left to become the first Professor of Molecular Biophysics at Oxford in 1966. From November 1959 he was a salaried member of the External Staff of the Medical Research Council (see NCUACS 45.1.94/A.10). Phillips's own account of the principal research projects in which he was engaged at the Royal Institution is included in the General Introduction.
The growing reputation of Phillips and his team can be seen from the annual increase in requests to visit the laboratory and in scientific exchanges (NCUACS 45.1.94/D.5-NCUACS 45.1.94/D.9) though these remain on a small scale compared to the rapid expansion of a major university department which followed the move to Oxford. Additional exchanges of ideas during the Royal Institution period can be found in the correspondence files for the relevant dates with long-term colleagues, particularly U.W. Arndt and A.C.T. North. Phillips's own research files and notes are at NCUACS 45.1.94/B.20-NCUACS 45.1.94/B.26, NCUACS 45.1.94/C.5-NCUACS 45.1.94/C.18, NCUACS 45.1.94/C.51-NCUACS 45.1.94/C.56.
Phillips never lost touch with the Royal Institution, becoming Manager, Fullerian Professor and Member of Council; these later contacts are recorded at NCUACS 45.1.94/D.13-NCUACS 45.1.94/D.16. His many contributions to the Institution's lecture and teaching programme culminated in his very successful Christmas Lectures of 1980-81 (see NCUACS 45.1.94/G.224-NCUACS 45.1.94/G.228). In 1991 he received the Institution's Actonian Prize (see NCUACS 45.1.94/A.56).
The Director of the Institution throughout Phillips's decade there was Sir Lawrence Bragg. They shared a mutual affectionate regard, the elucidation of lysozyme shortly before Bragg's retirement being seen in some sense to crown Bragg's Directorship as well as Phillips's research. The move to Oxford, in which Bragg among others played both an initiatory and a continuing role, also took on something of the aspect of the handing-on of a torch. Phillips, for his part, contributed several articles and celebratory tributes to Bragg, edited and saw through to publication the book The Development of X-ray Analysis left unfinished at Bragg's death (NCUACS 45.1.94/P.26, NCUACS 45.1.94/P.27), wrote the Biographical Memoir for the Royal Society (NCUACS 45.1.94/F.25-NCUACS 45.1.94/F.43) and, with J.M. Thomas, edited a commemorative volume for Bragg's centenary: Selections and reflections: the legacy of Sir Lawrence Bragg (NCUACS 45.1.94/P.28, NCUACS 45.1.94/P.29).

PHILLIPS'S CAREER AT OXFORD  [no ref. or date]

Contents:
Phillips's official arrival on 1 October 1966 as Professor of Biophysics followed several years of complex and often exasperating negotiations. The story has already been told from the viewpoint of some of those involved; J.W.S. Pringle, for example, in his valedictory lecture as Linacre Professor in 1979 (manuscript in the Bodleian Library, CSAC 117/8/86 item NCUACS 45.1.94/A.3) and H.A. Krebs who compiled his own documentary account which is included here at NCUACS 45.1.94/E.6.
Some of the issues involved can be relatively simply stated, though their resolution proved altogether more difficult. Some of Oxford's leading scientists, notably D.C. Hodgkin and H.A. Krebs, were anxious to strengthen molecular studies in the University, though a tentative approach in 1958 to M.F. Perutz about a possible transfer of his MRC Unit from Cambridge came to nothing, as did discussions between D.C. Hodgkin and Phillips in 1961 (see NCUACS 45.1.94/E.1). By 1963, when J.W.S. Pringle was in post as Linacre Professor, he reopened negotiations more actively, with the avowed aim of incorporating biophysics, preferably by the complete transfer of Phillips and his team to Oxford, as an element of the Zoology department for which an extensive new building had been promised. Other factors now came into play. The timing of any move was at least partly contingent upon the retirement of Sir Lawrence Bragg from the Royal Institution where Phillips and his team were then working. The Medical Research Council was Phillips's chief source of research support and its continuance had to be ensured. The Council also met the salaries of Phillips and other key members of his team, on scales considerably above those paid by the University; this was a cause of particularly protracted and acrimonious negotiations over which the whole project nearly foundered. Building delays and additional expenses were a further frustration; accommodation for Phillips's team was financed by the Nuffield Foundation but the building was not complete by the time of his arrival and the department started work in temporary space in the Old Physiology Department.
Although the material presented below gives a full and interesting account of the story, some episodes are only lightly touched on. An example is the successful initiative by Bragg in obtaining money from two of his personal friends, Sir Kenneth Lee and Colonel Harold Hemming, to help finance Oxford Fellowships for members of Phillips's team; this is referred to only scantily in NCUACS 45.1.94/E.2. (See also NCUACS 45.1.94/P.24). The 'Lee-Hemming benefaction', as it was known, was originally associated with St. Peter's College, and intended for the support of K.C. Holmes, considered a key member of the group along with A.C.T. North. Considerable consternation arose when Holmes decided at a very late stage (May 1966 see NCUACS 45.1.94/P.112) to withdraw from the Oxford project and accept a post in Germany; the benefaction was eventually transferred to Wolfson College for the support of C.C.F. Blake and A. Miller (NCUACS 45.1.94/E.7, NCUACS 45.1.94/E.10).
Holmes was not alone in receiving offers of posts elsewhere; Phillips considered a move to Edinburgh when progress seemed at a standstill, and also received many attractive offers from America (see especially his letter of 14 May 1965 in NCUACS 45.1.94/E.2).
Phillips's own chair carried with it Fellowship of Corpus Christi College; for his arrival there and subsequent college life, see NCUACS 45.1.94/E.7-E.9.

Biology Preliminary Course and Examination  [no ref. or date]

Contents:
At its meeting on 6 June 1972 the Board set up an ad hoc committee (sometimes also referred to as a sub-committee and a steering committee) 'to consider possible changes to and developments of the Biology Preliminary Course and Examination'. Phillips was the Convenor and the members were H. Harris, R.R. Porter, F.R. Whatley and D.L. Lack (later replaced by C.M. Perrins). D.C. Smith joined the committee later.
Background material was assembled including current syllabuses at Oxford and Cambridge (NCUACS 45.1.94/E.22) and recent reports from examiners incorporating the results of undergraduate questionnaires (NCUACS 45.1.94/E.23). Phillips also put out a circular in October 1972 requesting opinions from teachers and undergraduates which, together with his notes and some brief correspondence, are held at NCUACS 45.1.94/E.24.
An Open Meeting to discuss the proposed revision was held on 1 May 1973, after which Phillips drafted a report for consideration by the Board on 8 May. The proposals were circulated for comment to sub-faculty boards with the result that at its 12 June meeting the Board agreed to refer back the proposals to the sub-committee; one of the stumbling-blocks was the incorporation of blochemical studies into the examination. Phillips's second report to the Board, 8 November, proposed the setting up of working parties to prepare specific reports which were received during the early part of 1974 (NCUACS 45.1.94/E.27), and an agreed syllabus for the course and regulations for the examination were submitted to the Board in May 1974.

LABORATORY OF MOLECULAR BIOPHYSICS (LMB)  [no ref. or date]

Contents:
Throughout Phillips's tenure of the chair of molecular biophysics his laboratory was incorporated in the Department of Zoology, though he exercised independent control of research, teaching and budgeting, and even though his department was at first physically housed in temporary accommodation in the 'Old Physiology' building and was later separately lodged in the Rex Richards Building. From October 1991 the Laboratory became a sub-department of the Department of Biochemistry.
For these historical reasons therefore - fully documented at NCUACS 45.1.94/E.1-NCUACS 45.1.94/E.6 - close contacts existed between Phillips and J.W.S. Pringle, Linacre Professor of Zoology; meeting, estimates, staff returns, relations with the University, lecture arrangements and the like went forward in tandem wherever possible. Pringle retired in 1979 and his successor was T.R.E. Southwood who was on particularly friendly terms with Phillips.
In his own laboratory Phillips continued the practice which he had begun on a lighted scale at the Royal Institution, of circulating all but personal communications to his staff, to keep them fully informed of events and also to solicit their views and comments and to enlist their help. Many documents, here and throughout the collection, have a list of initials of those circulated and, often, their replies. It has not been possible to index these relatively brief communications, though they have considerable value in showing Phillips's style as head of department and were also of great practical help to him in framing replies, policy-making and the like. Only separate letters or papers of some substance appear in the index. Members of the laboratory staff principally involved at various dates are, in alphabetical order:
M.J. Adams
R. Aschaffenburg
C.C.F. Blake
L.N. Johnson
A. Miller
A.C.T. North
R.E. Offord
A.R. Rees
C.D. Rodgers

The Hope and Linacre Professorships  [no ref. or date]


Related information: See also NCUACS 45.1.94/E.40.

Contents:
The impending retirements of the Hope Professor of Entomology (G.C. Varley) in 1978 and of the Linacre Professor of Zoology (J.W.S. Pringle) in 1979 led the University to consider the future of the departments, and the duties and responsibilities of the Professors. A committee was set up by the Biology Board, chaired by W.F. Bodmer; it began taking evidence in Hilary Term 1976 and its report was communicated by the Biology Board to the General Board in Trinity Term 1976. It recommended, inter alia, the integration of the academic and teaching responsibilities of the Hope chair within the Zoology Department, and the official establishment of the chair of Molecular Biophysics (hitherto ad hominem); it envisaged that the Headship of the enlarged Zoology Department should rotate between the three Professors. Subsequent enabling legislation proposed by Council aroused considerable controversy and was formally opposed.
At a special meeting of the Zoology Departmental Committee on 6 March 1975 a 'Defence Committee' was set up 'to protect the long-term interests of the Department'. Phillips was Chairman, and the Committee renamed 'Development Committee' - met on 3 and 25 September to consider the following questions:
1. Whether the Professorship should be altered or abolished
2. Whether there are any other changes which may be desirable in the decree governing the post
3. What particular qualifications the next holder of the post should have
And to provide information on the current resources and accommodation of the Department, and on teaching, syllabuses, and major research projects.
A paper by Phillips was tabled at the Departmental Committee meeting on 29 September and the complete information sent to Bodmer on 13 October.
The implementation of the 'Bodmer report' involved often agonising consideration of the space problem consequent on the proposed incorporation of the Hope Professor and his group within the Department. The Development Committee met in March 1977 to draft recommendations which were sent to the University on 22 April.

Equipment Grants  [no ref. or date]

Contents:
Almost all of these were made by the Medical Research Council, whose continuing support for Phillips's research had been a pre-condition of his move to Oxford. Preliminary enquiries were often under way before all the negotiations were completed and were therefore ready to be activated as soon as agreement was reached. Even so, there were many delays and frustrations caused by amalgamations and mergers of firms, late deliveries, faulty design and especially by dilatory and inadequate servicing arrangements. In this respect, the material is an illuminating reflection on academic-industrial relations.
The principal requirements were for powerful computing capacity (MRC grant 53, NCUACS 45.1.94/E.97- NCUACS 45.1.94/E.101) and for X-ray diffraction equipment (NCUACS 45.1.94/E.102-NCUACS 45.1.94/E.107).
The folders may include specifications, drafts and ideas for grant applications, formal applications and reports on project results, correspondence with firms, research councils and colleagues, and frequent memoranda from LMB staff about problems with the equipment.

Argus 500 Computer  [no ref. or date]

Contents:
The instrument was purchased for LMB from Ferranti Ltd. by the Medical Research Council via HMSO. This was not the subject of a formal grant application by Phillips; the Council's letter of 28 October 1966 to HMSO sets out the decision to order. The departmental number assigned to matters relating to the Argus was MRC 53. After several site testings, the machine was accepted in March 1969. Troubles arose with faulty or incompatible equipment, in particular the Tally paper tape punch, and with poor maintenance. The department eventually wrote its own software after protracted delays by the firm (letters of 31 July 1969, 2 February 1970).
The correspondence is conducted principally with HMSO and MRC, and the suppliers Ferranti, Ampex (tape deck) and Faul-Coradi (successor of Hilger Electronics); most of it was by A.C.T. North until 1972, and by Phillips thereafter.

It was the object of an application to MRC in the name of A.C.T. North and shared the same departmental number, MRC 53, as the Argus.
The initial negotations were conducted by A.C.T. North and later by Phillips; the chief user was M.J. Adams. The equipment was Installed in July 1970- before the application to MRC and its granting - and was the source of continual faults and complaints, which led Phillips in a letter to the manufacturers in August 1975 to describe it as 'without doubt the most unsatisfactory scientific instrument it has been my misfortune to buy'.

1. 4-circle diffractometer, supplied by Hilger Electronics.
2. Buffer unit for interface to Argus computer, supplied by Hilger Electronics.
3. Magnetic tape decks, supplied by Ferranti Ltd.
Although preliminary enquiries and specifications had been under way since 1966, this grant was also subject to delays in supply, delivery, setting-up and maintenance. The case was greatly complicated by industrial upheavals. Hilger & Watts (the original firm) was incorporated in Rank Precision Industries, which sold off Hilger Electronics to Faul-Coradi Scotland Ltd. There were also moves of key personnel.

NCUACS 45/1/94/F.109-NCUACS 45.1.94/F.111 ADDENDUM
NCUACS 45/1/94/F.112 LIST OF PHILLIPS'S PUBLICATIONS
The material at NCUACS 45.1.94/F.1-NCUACS 45.1.94/F.46 and F.109-F.111, related to Phillips's own publications, may include drafts, correspondence with colleagues, editors and referees, requests for reprints or permission to quote. It is presented in chronological order of date of publication; correspondence may antedate this by a year or more, and continue for many years later. It is far from adequately covering Phillips's activities as a research scientist; he was usually a reluctant writer, rarely kept documentation after publication, and during his early career at Ottawa and the Royal Institution did not enjoy secretarial backup. His major papers on lysozyme in Nature 1965 (NCUACS 45.1.94/F.7) and Scientific American 1966 (NCUACS 45.1.94/F.10-NCUACS 45.1.94/F.12) are, however, well documented, particularly the latter which was remarkable in several ways: It presented a major research advance in a non-specialist publication and it was illustrated by hand-drawn diagrams specially commissioned from the artist Irving Gels, giving rise to copyright difficulties in later years. See the note on NCUACS 45.1.94/F.10-NCUACS 45.1.94/F.12. The recurring problem of presenting three-dimensional results on a printed page is frequently addressed in correspondence with colleagues and editors during the 1960s and 1970s and was usually 'solved' at that time by expedients such as red-green diagrams and filter spectacles for the reader.
Also of interest is the extensive material assembled by Phillips for his memoir of Sir Lawrence Bragg written for the Royal Society and published in 1979. This includes information and recollections covering many aspects of Bragg's career, sent by colleagues and not used in full in the final version. See the note on NCUACS 45.1.94/F.25-NCUACS 45.1.94/F.43. An account by Phillips of his work with Bragg at the Royal Institution and the early history of the move to Oxford is at NCUACS 45.1.94/F.44. See also NCUACS 45.1.94/P.28, NCUACS 45.1.94/P.29 for further personal and scientific recollections of Bragg by Phillips and others.
Phillips was in constant demand as editor, referee or consultant adviser both to established journals and to new publications in specialist fields, and to publishing houses old and new. Though unable to accept many requests to undertake such work, he was actively involved with learned journals in his own line of research. See note to NCUACS 45.1.94/F.47-NCUACS 45.1.94/F.108. The frequent occasions on which he declined similar invitations, some persistent, are partly seen in NCUACS 45.1.94/F.106, NCUACS 45.1.94/F.107.

Phillips's manuscript draft, brief notes and correspondence with Nature. Includes carbon of letter to Editor by W.L. Bragg, 6 April 1965, on the importance of the paper:
Dr Phillips in the Davy Faraday Laboratory is sending you a paper on the structure of lysozyme.
This paper is quite an event. It follows the paper by Kendrew on myoglobin and that by Perutz on haemoglobin, which were first published in Nature. But while the structure of haemoglobin has never been analysed beyond 5-6A resolution, and that of myoglobin is still rather uncertain in certain places, this new solution marks a new stage in the X-ray analysis of protein. The Fourier map is so clear that the positions of practically all the atoms are certain. It is a most interesting structure in itself, and also interesting because Phillips and his colleagues have found out where the inhibitors are attached to the enzyme.
It is a long paper for Nature, but in my opinion, in view of its importance, it is very desirable to publish the work in this rather full detail at this stage. The word had gone round that a third protein has been analysed and very great interest has already been taken in the results. I hope therefore that you can find a place in Nature for this paper.
Yours very sincerely

Contents:
This is perhaps the single most influential of Phillips's publications. It diffused among a wide public information about the scientific techniques required for the lysozyme study, the problems of protein folding and interaction and the mechanisms of enzyme activity. The difficulty of illustrating the three-dimensional molecule was solved in this case by the talents of the artist I. Geis who spent a week in the Royal Institution studying and drawing direct from the model, and subsequently producing paintings for reproduction.
The article, which appeared in November 1966, was immediately popular. W.H.Freeman (publishers for Scientific American) added it to their reprint series and republished it in collections in book form for many years. Phillips himself received many requests for reprints, or for permission to reproduce material; because the illustrations were based on original specially commissioned paintings, however, permission had to be sought from the publisher and was not normally granted. In addition to the requests at NCUACS 45.1.94/F.12, several correspondence files in Section P include some reference to the matter; see especially exchanges with I. Geis and J. Glusker

William Lawrence Bragg 1890-1971, Biographical Memoirs of Fellows of the Royal Society, 25  NCUACS 45.1.94/F.25-F.43  1979

Contents:
Bragg died in July 1971 and in October Phillips was invited by the Royal Society to prepare a Biographical Memoir. He made clear that he could not undertake to complete the task for the original deadline for publication in the 1972 volume; in the event, his memoir - a major account occupying 70 large-format printed pages - did not appear until 1979.
Many factors, in addition to the principal one of Phillips's multiple commitments, contributed to this considerable delay. There were practical difficulties in compiling a full accurate bibliography; several publications were out of print, many additions and corrections had to be made to the existing lists, and there was the further problem of dealing with Bragg's numerous contributions to radio and TV. These were omitted from the published memoir but there is a list included with other bibliographical notes and enquiries at NCUACS 45.1.94/F.31. Bragg's long career had included several sensitive episodes on both a personal and public level - among others, his relationship with his father W.H. Bragg, his early difficulties as professor at Manchester University and the stormy events at the Royal Institution preceding his appointment as Resident Professor in 1953 (Director 1965). There was need to deal with these, as well as all the other aspects of his career, in a way which would satisfy both accuracy and discretion and could be approved by colleagues and by the members of the Bragg family, some of whom were themselves actively involved in publication projects. There were also the many relatively routine enquiries to establish facts and dates of various events, some of which led to reminiscences and recollections not incorporated in the final version. In this respect the correspondence and comment folders at NCUACS 45.1.94/F.33-NCUACS 45.1.94/F.43 are of some interest.

British Association Link-up
This was a journal started by the British Association as 'part of the initiative to bridge the gap between science, in the widest definition of that term, and industry'. It was launched in the House of Lords on 21 March 1984 and Phillips was invited to join the Editorial Advisory Board on 10 April by the Chairman (F.C. Dainton).
The journal, published four times a year from September 1984, was distributed free to a relatively narrow circulation list and lost money for the publishers Home & Law (Scientific Publications) Limited. Ownership of the company was transferred to Mark Allen publishing Ltd in June 1986; his plans to expand the frequency of publication, introduce a subscription fee and other editorial decisions led to representations from the existing staff and administrators of Link-up and to emergency meetings of the editorial board on 2 and 29 July 1986. Legal action was necessary to terminate the agreement between the BA and the publisher, the matter being settled out of court in December 1986.
Material includes correspondence and papers, editorial board meetings, publishing programme, suggestions for articles and authors, comments on journal.

Contents:
Officials of the Press consulted Phillips regularly throughout his period in Oxford for advice on proposed monographs, series or journals for possible publication, as well as pressing him to write for them himself, or to allow them to publish lectures or papers delivered elsewhere, notably the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures of 1980-81. Of these initiatives, the most successful was Protein Structure by Phillips and A.C.T. North published in the Oxford Biology Readers series (NCUACS 45.1.94/F.16, NCUACS 45.1.94/F.17). The most ambitious project, however, was the 'Protein Atlas', first mooted in 1968 by Phillips and F.M. Richards who subsequently became joint overall editors. The 'Atlas' envisaged a compendium on the structures of globular proteins, to be published in several volumes each under individual expert authorship. Two volumes only were published, under the series title 'Atlas of Molecular Structures in Biology'; these were Ribonuclease - S by F.M. Richards and H.W. Wyckoff (1973) and Haemoglobin and Myoglobin by M.F. Perutz and G. Fermi (1981). Phillips was to have contributed the volume on Lysozyme but this was never completed. Phillips's manuscript note on the original file cover reads "A largely abortive project with FMR - because of my procrastination". The project was finally wound up in 1992.
Material at NCUACS 45.1.94/F.95, NCUACS 45.1.94/F.96 comprises quite a full account of the project from its origin in 1968. It includes early proposals, funding and publishing ideas
Negotiations and correspondence with colleagues and especially with F.M. Richards, discussion of the stereo-diagram two-colour printing problem, and other matters relating to the published and projected volumes.
Reference should also be made to the correspondence for the relevant period with Richards at NCUACS 45.1.94/P.220-NCUACS 45.1.94/P.224.

SECTION G VISITS, CONFERENCES, LECTURES  NCUACS 45.1.94/G.1 - G.451  [n.d.]


Related information: Excluded from this section are official visits undertaken as Biological Secretary of the Royal Society (Section L), Member of the Medical Research Council (Section N) or Chairman of the Advisory Board of the Research Councils (Section O).

Contents:
This is one of the largest sections in the collection, reflecting Phillips's close involvement in the diffusion of scientific information and his success therein.
The period covered is 1957-93, extending over a wide range of topics, objectives and venues. It includes conferences at a national level organised by learned societies such as the Biochemical Society, British Crystallographical Association, Chemical Society and Institute of Physics, or by more general UK bodies such as the British Association, CIBA Foundation and the Royal Society (Phillips co-organised five major Discussion Meetings for the Society and participated in many more). There are also the International Conferences of the International Unions of Crystallography, Pure and Applied Biophysics and Pure and Applied Chemistry, and, at a more personal level, institutions which had a special claim on Phillips's loyalty such as the Royal Institution and University College Cardiff (University of Wales) where he made time to visit whenever possible. Many research papers and lectures were given to specialist university departments and laboratories, or to restricted discussion groups such as those organised by the CIBA Foundation.
The topics focus in pride of place on Phillips's, and later his team's, research: instrumentation and methodology from diffractometry to computer graphics, all aspects of protein synthesis and structure, interaction, folding and dynamics, enzyme specificity and engineering. An element of historical overview occurs increasingly with the anniversaries of the myoglobin and lysozyme syntheses, and various celebrations for W.L. Bragg.
Science education was always an important factor in determining Phillips's allocation of his time. For example he attended, often with a substantial contingent from the Oxford Laboratory, the Burgenstock Stereochemistry Summer Schools, and the SRC weekend workshops at the Daresbury Laboratory. He regularly gave Extension Lectures for the Oxford University Delegacy for Extra-Mural Studies, and gave frequent talks to undergraduate science clubs and societies, school-teachers and sixth-formers all over Britain. He took to heart Kathleen Lonsdale's dictum 'Never refuse an opportunity to speak at schools' (quoted by D.C. Hodgkin in her obituary of Lonsdale in Biog.Mem. Fs.R.S., 21, 1976), and made many successful visits to widely different types of school.
From the 1980s particularly, Phillips's growing involvement in science policy and research funding is an increasing theme in lectures and talks, often given at conferences sponsored by political and industrial pressure groups.
The documentation of this activity varies in detail. For some of the early period it is very scanty - perhaps a single exchange of letters, or a notice - or even has to be deduced from evidence elsewhere (see NCUACS 45.1.94/G.11). Conversely, and especially for meetings organised in whole or in part by Phillips, it may be extensive and includes preliminary arrangements and correspondence, and publication of proceedings. Most items include correspondence with colleagues, programmes and lists of participants; there may be complicated travel arrangements and the garnering of expenses from several sources. Occasionally notes or a typescript for a lecture are included, but these are rare as Phillips preferred to speak from very brief outline notes. See NCUACS 45.1.94/G.408 and note.
The main sequence of entries at NCUACS 45.1.94/G.1 - NCUACS 45.1.94/G.385 itemise visits made or lectures given by Phillips though sometimes outside pressures forced a last-minute cancellation; in particular, it is clear from correspondence that the illness of his mother in the late 1960s curtailed his freedom to travel at that time. He received many more invitations than he could accept. See NCUACS 45.1.94/G.386 - NCUACS 45.1.94/G.407 and note, and also NCUACS 45.1.94/G.451 for information on invitations declined.
Attention is drawn to the following points:
The material is presented in chronological order (when ascertainable) of the scheduled date of the conference or lecture; the preliminary organisation and correspondence may begin up to two years beforehand.
The date-span of the whole conference is given in the entries. Phillips was not always present throughout. Increasingly often, pressure of engagements meant he could attend only for a day or session of special interest or commitment.
The titles of his lectures - requested many months in advance - were often phrased in deliberately bland or general terms, to enable him to include the latest research results when he spoke. For similar reasons, he resisted pressure to submit manuscripts before a lecture.
NCUACS 45.1.94/G.409 - NCUACS 45.1.94/G.451 consist of material received too late for inclusion in the main sequence. Some of the items are therefore out of chronological order, but the main bulk of the work relates to lectures and conferences 1990-93. Some of these are of personal interest such as the celebration meetings for Dorothy Hodgkin (NCUACS 45.1.94/G.412) and F.M. Richards (NCUACS 45.1.94/G.427), the Special Achievement Award to Phillips (NCUACS 45.1.94/G.437), and the many opening or inaugural ceremonies which he conducted. Others testify to his continuing involvement in science, such as his co-organising of a Royal Society Discussion Meeting (NCUACS 45.1.94/G.430). The majority, however, are concerned with research policy and funding, and the changes in government organisation affecting science and technology. These lectures, unlike the scientific assignments of earlier years, often undergo several drafts including input from ABRC staff, though Phillips continued, as far as circumstances allowed, to use a looser 'speaking text' which he would 'ad lib' or redraft on the journey to an engagement.

Contents:
The provisional title 'On the molecules of life' was changed by Phillips and his daughter Sarah to 'The chicken, the egg and the molecules'. There were six lectures; the fifth, on 'Haemoglobin: the breathing molecule', was given by M.F. Perutz.
The importance Phillips attached to delivering material which would be both interesting and intelligible to young people is reflected in the help he enlisted from his daughter and the children of colleagues. Partly perhaps this was the reason for his speaking without a script, using only brief lists of experiments and demonstrations.
The lectures were very well-received, the televised versions put out by BBC TV attracting an audience of half a million (see letter of 20 January 1981 in NCUACS 45.1.94/G.225).

Phillips served on the Programme Committee, whose Chairman was F.R. Ahmed, his colleague at the National Research Council Laboratories Ottawa in the 1950s. He gave one of the main lectures on 'Flexibility and dynamics of protein structures' and acted as receiver of abstracts for three of the 'Microsymposia' (Nos. 1-3, on Macromolecular Structure, Structural Molecular Biology, and Crystallography in Biochemistry and Pharmacology). The Programme Committee met in Barcelona in July 1980 to finalise the programme; Phillips was not able to attend this meeting and T.L. Blundell took his place.
The material is principally correspondence with organisers and colleagues, including members of Phillips's Laboratory, on topics, speakers and arrangements for the Congress and its Microsymposia and various proposals for Schools, workshops and meetings to be held before, during or afterwards, separately or in conjunction with the main meeting
Phillips's letter of 2 April 1980 gives his detailed comments and suggestions for the Congress.
Frequent references are made by Phillips from the earliest approach in 1979, and by others, to the overlap of dates with the IUPAB Congress in Mexico City, 23-29 August. Phillips attended this as a member of Council but no documentation survives here. He went on from Mexico City to Japan for meetings on Japan-UK Science Policy

International Union for Pure and Applied Biophysics (IUPAB) Eighth International Biophysics Congress, Bristol  NCUACS 45.1.94/G.290-G.297  29 July - 4 August 1984

Contents:
The President of IUPAB during the period of the Congress, and Chairman of the Steering Committee, was R.D. Keynes. The Secretary-General of the Steering Committee and Chairman of the Local Executive Committee was H.C. Watson who had played a leading part in the original choice of Bristol as location. The Treasurer of the Steering Committee (from 1982) was A.C.T. North who also served on the Scientific Programme Committee (Chairman: W. Fuller). Phillips served on the Steering and the Scientific Programme Committee, and was co-Chairman with M. Karplus of the Symposium on 'Folding, Dynamics and Solvation of Macromolecules'.
Administrative, logistic and financial difficulties made the organisation of the Congress far from smooth. The invitation to IUPAB to hold the Congress in Bristol was made via the Royal Society's British National Committee in June 1979, agreement having already been reached with the City and University authorities that they would welcome such an approach, and was accepted by IUPAB. Reservations about the proposed dates (1-8 September) were immediately expressed, however, and a request was made that they be moved forward, primarily to sult the earlier academic year of American universities. This raised difficulties for the UK organisers because of the national Bank Holiday weekend and the University's staff holiday and building works programme. These problems were never entirely overcome. Clashes with other international meetings had also to be taken into account, in particular the IUCr Congress at Hamburg arranged for 9-19 August. The eventual choice of 29 July - 4 August, made as late as 1982 and largely brought about by the University's refusal to open its Halls of Residence beyond the first week in August, clashed directly with the 9th International Congress of Pharmacology in London and was thought to have adversely affected number of registrations and the enlistment of industrial sponsorship.
A professional company, Meon Conference Services, was engaged partly because neither the City nor the University were able to provide major administrative support. The Congress Centre was in the City's Floating Harbour site.
As Phillips was a member of both the Steering and Programme Committees there is a useful record of all meetings and negotiations as well as briefer material relating to participation by members of the Laboratory.
NCUACS 45.1.94/G.295-NCUACS 45.1.94/G.297 relate to associate or satellite meetings of the Congress, in which Phillips was invited to participate, but was unable to do so (see NCUACS 45.1.94/G.298).
See NCUACS 45.1.94/L.4 for material of the Royal Society's British National Committee relating to the congress.
NB. Several of the early documents refer when using Roman numerals to the VII Congress, and there are several inaccuracies in the dates assigned to meetings and letters.

Related information: See also NCUACS 45.1.94/G.451.

Contents:
The material, basically similar to that of the main sequence, varies in substance from a single exchange of letters to full information on discussion or research topics, participants and schedules of events and sometimes includes invitations to accept visiting professorships. Many of the organisations with which Phillips was closely associated such as the Biochemical Society, IUPAC, IUPAB, IUCr, SRC, the Gordon Protein and the Burgenstock Stereochemistry Conferences are also represented here.
Several of the invitations were circulated in the laboratory in accordance with Phillips's practice, and may bear comments from others about the proposed meeting, their wish or availability to attend etc.
Taken in conjunction with the main sequence, the material is of interest in indicating the continuing demand for information about Phillips's current research and his skills as lecturer and chairman. On a general level it also documents the evolution of topics of interest in the scientific community over an extensive period.
As with the main sequence, the material is presented in order of the year in which the conference was scheduled; the correspondence may precede this by a year or more.

Lecture notes; Filfoax box of lecture notes  NCUACS 45.1.94/G.408  [n.d.]

Contents:
The notes run 1966-89, though not is strict chronological order. They are all standard Filofax format, 17 x9 cm, closely written in black or blue ink with highlights or cues in red. Many have outline headings only and, with few exceptions, extend to no more than two or three sheets.
Various factors make this one of the most interesting items in the collection. It contains examples of every kind of gathering at which Phillips spoke, including major scientific meetings such as the Biochemical Society, BCA, IUPAB, IUPAC, university or special lectures, talks to schoolteachers or sixth-formers, official opening ceremonies etc. The most frequent topics are aspects of ongoing research; these notes will include diagrams and cues for slides, films or overheads. There are also lecture of February 1984, unusually fully extended to 20 sheets. A few more personal addresses are represented, for example the acceptance of the Wolf Prize in 1987 and the British Association Presidential Address 'A Life in Science' of September 1988. In a small number of cases the notes refer to occasions not documented by surviving correspondence; it is of interest that these often testify to Phillips's continuing links with the Methodist Church, the most recent being a talk to the Banbury Methodist Mens's Dining Club in January 1989.
Phillips was frequently under pressure from conference organisers and editors to submit scripts for publication. Whenever possible, he refused, both in order to include literally last-minute research results and to preserve the Immediacy of oral delivery. His lecturing and improvisatory skills emerge remarkably from the evidence of these notes, the more so when taken in conjunction with the proofs of success furnished by the letters of congratulation and renewed invitations preserved in the main sequence of correspondence. As examples one can cite the prize-winning Open University filmed lectures of May 1976 given from an alde-memoire with cues and timing-notes, and the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures of 1980-81 given from apparently scrappy notes with cues for experiments and effects.

SECTION H RADIO, TELEVISION, FILMS  NCUACS 45.1.94/H.1 - H.42  [n.d.]

Contents:
Most of Phillips's radio and television work was for the BBC. Documentation for this is presented in chronological order at NCUACS/45/1/94/H.1-H.28. Some of it is relatively slight and may be no more than a contract for a broadcast, and some may concern projects which did not come to fruition. In some cases, however, scripts and detailed programming arrangements remain; in particular, there is a useful record of Phillips's involvement with the writing and presentation of programmes for the Open University, one series of which, on 'The structure and activity of lysozyme', won a prize at the International Festival for Scientific and Technical Films, Brussels, 1982.
NCUACS/45/1/94/H.29-H.42 is a chronological sequence of shorter material relating to other radio, TV or film companies or projects.

BRITISH CRYSTALLOGRAPHIC ASSOCIATION (BCA)  [no ref. or date]


Related information: See also Institute of Physics Crystallography Group

Contents:
The papers and correspondence below represent much of the founding and early records of the Association. Material relating to BCA Conferences, including the Inaugural Conference at Durham in April 1982, are in Section G.
Proposals to form a British Crystallographic Association were considered at a joint meeting on 17 November 1980 of the Institute of Physics Crystallography Group and the Chemical Crystallography Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry. It was felt that such an Association would reflect the increasingly inter-disciplinary range of interests of crystallographers while preserving the links with the parent institutions (the IoP and the RSC).
A Working Party was set up to work out detailed proposals and to draft Statutes and By-Laws. The Chairman was D.M. Blow and the members were D.W.J. Cruickshank, A.C. Skapski, S.C. Wallwork and A.J.C. Wilson. At the Working Party's first meeting in December 1980 A.J.C. Wilson was to asked to draw up a draft constitution, an amended version of which was submitted for consideration by Group Committees of the IoP and RSC. By August 1981 it was felt that the constitution was in an acceptable form and it was forwarded to the Charity Commissioners in order to obtain charitable status for the new Association. It was duly registered in June 1982.
Meanwhile at a Working Party meeting on 29 June 1981 a Provisional Council was formed and on 1 July Phillips was invited by D.M. Blow to become its President and consequently President of the BCA on its foundation. Other members of the Provisional Council were D.M.C. Hodgkin (Vice-President), C.A. Taylor (Treasurer), A.C. Skapski (Secretary), D.M. Blow, S.C. Wallwork and A.J.C. Wilson.
Plans now concentrated on the formal launch and inaugural Meeting of the Association during the Durham Crystallographic Meeting 5-8 April 1982. The Working Party held its last meeting on 5 April, when the unanimous resolution was passed to form the BCA, the composition of the Provisional Council was confirmed and the Working Party was dissolved, its members becoming Founder Members of BCA. The Provisional Council then held its first meeting and agreed the form of the Statutes and By-Laws to be presented at the Inaugural General Meeting held the following day (6 April). This meeting adopted the Statutes and confirmed the election of the Officers and Council members. Phillips thus became the BCA's first President and Chairman of its Council until 1984, when he was succeeded by D.M. Blow. In the course of the Durham meeting the Institute of Physics Crystallography Group held its AGM and supported a proposal to change its name to 'The Physical Crystallography Group'. See also NCUACS/45/1/94/G.255.
With the official launch of the Association and the grant of charitable status, an Intensive programme of fund-raising from industry could be initiated. The first appeal letters were sent out by Phillips as President in April 1982, and a phased programme continued throughout the second half of the year. The appeal was very successful and, together with subscriptions from members, gave the BCA a secure financial base. This aspect of its activities is well documented at NCUACS 45.1.94/J.9, NCUACS 45.1.94/J.10.
Other early activities of the Association which are recorded here are the Radiation Safety Committee, chaired by D.M. Blow, founded in 1982 to advise the Association on the Health and Safety Executive Consultative Document 'The Ionising Radiation Regulations' and other official matters, and the establishment of two new subject groups. These were the Industrial Group and the Biological Structure Group which were launched at the 1983 Spring Meeting of the Association.
The folders retain Phillips's arrangement and titles. There is sometimes some overlap in the contents.

Contents:
The CCDC was founded in 1965 with support from SRC, and located in the University Chemical Laboratory Cambridge. Its founder-director O.Kennard was an MRC staff member. Its main purpose was the creation, maintenance and continuing development of a comprehensive library of information on molecular structures known as the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD). The CSD and associated software were made available on a subscription basis to academic users and to chemical and pharmaceutical companies. In 1985 discussions began on the proposal that the Centre should become an independent charitable company, with governors and an Advisory Board and, ultimately, its own premises (scheduled for opening in 1992). Phillips was a founder Governor, together with R.A. Raphael, J. Lewis, M.R. Truter and the Director. See NCUACS/45/1/94/J.40 for Phillips's appointment to the Advisory Board of CCDC.

CELLTECH  [no ref. or date]

Contents:
Celltech Limited was set up in 1980 to exploit discoveries in biotechnology, by agreement with the Medical Research Council and the then National Enterprise Board (NEB). The initiative arose in part from the dissatisfaction felt by MRC that the National Research Development Council had previously been slow to develop important and potentially profitable advances made in Council-funded laboratories. Funding came from the NEB and from outside corporate investors.
Phillips was involved in this enterprise from the beginning. He was a member of the subcommittee appointed by the MRC in June 1980 to negotiate and conclude the formal agreement to set up the company, and also of the later subcommittee appointed in November 1980 to oversee the operation of the Celltech Fund derived from royalties and used for fellowships and awards for fundamental research. At the end of 1981 he was invited to join the Celltech Board as a Director from February 1982.

During this period the Directors were, successively, G.E.W. Wolstenholme (to 1978), D.C. Evered (to November 1988), D.J. Chadwick (from November 1988). Other regular correspondents were K. Elliott (Assistant Director), R. Porter (Deputy Director).
Many CIBA conferences attended by Phillips are documented in Section G, but some of the correspondence below deals with smaller or private discussion meetings in addition to the major conferences open to a wider public.

Indeed the first conference recorded in Section G is of an IoP X-ray Analysis Group meeting in 1957.

Contents:
This was one of the principal UK learned societies with which Phillips was involved. See NCUACS/45/1/94/A.6 for material on his election as Associate Member in 1950 and NCUACS 45.1.94/P.289 for his election as Fellow in 1957. He attended many of its meetings and colloquia:
The material below is mainly concerned with the affairs of the X-ray Analysis Group (X-RAG) and its evolution into the British Crystallographic Association (q.v.). In April 1969 Phillips was elected Vice-Chairman of X-RAG, which changed its name in December 1969 to Crystallography Group. In December 1971 he was elected Chairman of the Group, for three years with effect from September 1972.
Much of the correspondence and papers deals with the routine affairs of the Group such as arrangements for meetings, topics, lectures and speakers, contributions to newsletters, appointments and elections of officers and committee members etc. Reference is sometimes made to meetings attended or papers delivered by Phillips additional to those in Section G. There is also documentation for the movement towards the amalgamation of smaller specialist groups. Phillips greatly approved such a collaborative movement; see his letter of 12 October 1966 in which he actually coined the name British Crystallographic Association though this came into being only in 1982.

HARVARD-MONSANTO RESEARCH AGREEMENT  [no ref. or date]


Related information: See NCUACS/45/1/94/P.273.

Contents:
In 1974 Harvard University and the Monsanto Company undertook a collaborative research programme in the field of 'molecular messengers' under the scientific direction at Harvard of M.J. Folkman and B.L. Vallee with the help of large-scale tissue culture facilities provided by Monsanto. The focus of research was Tumor Angiogenesis Factor (TAF) which it was hoped might have practical outcomes in the prevention and treatment of certain cancers. Because both partners in the enterprise were conscious of the matters of public interest involved in this academic-industrial partnership, a Scientific Advisory Board was established from the start to provide 'objective guidance and advice as to how best to take the public interest into consideration'.
Phillips was invited to serve on the board in February 1980, at a time when Monsanto was hoping that the research stage, already considerable in time and cost, might be ready to move into 'development mode'.
The Board met about twice a year, roughly in May and November, and alternately at Boston (Harvard) and St. Louis (Monsanto); many meetings and discussions between those directly involved in the project took place in the interim and notes of these and consequent decisions are sometimes included in the folders. By 1984 the company decided that it no longer felt able to continue a high-cost long-term Investment, and the agreement was wound down.
The vicissitudes of a collaborative project of this nature, illustrative in many ways of the problems inherent in commercial support for academic research, were felt by Phillips to be of more than timely interest and a full record of his involvement has therefore been kept, including historical material of the setting-up of the collaboration sent to him as briefing material. His own note about the interest of the episode is included in NCUACS 45.1.94/K.14
The material consists of correspondence (some photocopied), reports, papers of board meeting, Phillips's notes, travel arrangements etc. The correspondents include the President and successive Deans of Harvard, Chairmen and Vice-Presidents of Monsanto, members of the Board, and B.L. Vallee, the chief Harvard scientist in charge of the project. For additional correspondence with Vallee

Single Crystal Intensity Measurement Project  [no ref. or date]

Contents:
This project was one of those determined at the IUCr meeting in Rome in 1963 (NCUACS/45/1/94/G.9). Its aims were twofold: to provide a quantitative comparison of the accuracy in various diffractometers used for measuring intensities and structure factors, and to enable individual participants to assess the accuracy of their own diffractometers. S.C. Abrahams was responsible for the project; A.Mc.L. Mathieson, Chairman of the Union's Commission on Crystallographic Apparatus, was closely involved. Phillips was one of the consultants.
The choice of a standard substance proved difficult and was never satisfactorily resolved. Oxalic acid dehydrate was initially selected but was affected by efflorescence on exposure to air (see letters of September 1964). The next choice was tartaric acid, but the first batch of 2000 crystals which were distributed to participants early in 1965 proved unsuitable (see letters of July 1965) and further, much smaller, batches with preliminary screening, had to be prepared and distributed at a late stage in the time-schedule. Difficulties continued in obtaining satisfactory results and meeting deadlines and only 16 participants were able to complete all or part of their assignment; the UK contribution was very thin (see Phillips's letter of 1970 in NCUACS/45/1/94/K.27).
The material was prepared by Mathieson (CSIRO Melbourne); distribution to participants in UK and Europe was undertaken by Phillips; the numerical treatment of the data was handled by W.C. Hamilton (USA). A statement of results was presented at the IUCr Congress in Moscow in 1966 (NCUACS/45/1/94/G.24).
The correspondence and papers are exchanged with the principal organisers (Abrahams and Mathieson, who normally address Phillips as 'Dave') and with UK and European participants. Some reference is made to other IUCr projects and to Phillips's lysozyme work which was at its peak at this time.

NCUACS/45/1/94/N.53-NCUACS/45/1/94/N.64 CONFERENCES AND DISCUSSION MEETINGS
Phillips's period of service on the Council began officially with his letter of appointment of 16 April 1974, to take effect from 1 October, and continued until the end of 1978; from 1976-83 he also served as 'Attending Assessor' on behalf of the Royal Society.
These years saw many changes in the structure and work of the Council. In particular, the publication of the 'Rothschild Report' and the subsequent White Paper on Research and Development with its acceptance of the concept of commissioned research, impelled the Council to reorganise its structure, enlarging the number and membership of its Research Boards and defining their role in formulating and implementing positive research policies. Up to 1974 there had been three Boards: the Biological Research Board (BRB), the Clinical Research Board (CRB) and the Tropical Medicine Research Board (TMRB). With effect from October 1974, the third of these (TRMB) remained while the first two were replaced by three new Boards:
Board 1: Neurobiology and Mental Health Board (Neurosciences Board)
Board 2: Cell Biology and Disorders Board (Cell Board)
Board 3: Physiological Systems and Disorders Board (Systems Board)
While these changes were being adumbrated during 1973. Phillips was approached by the then Secretary J.R.B. (later Sir John) Gray to accept appointment to the Council and to the two-year chairmanship of the new Board 2 (Cell Board). As chairman-designate he was closely involved with the preliminary meetings and arrangements to define its areas of responsibility, membership, Grants Committees and the like before the first official meeting of the Cell Board in October 1974. NCUACS 45.1.94/N.2, NCUACS 45.1.94/N.3 below include many notes and ideas by Phillips on these topics, and NCUACS 45.1.94/N.4 contains early suggestions for commissioned research, then a relatively new undertaking.
Another, more general feature of British society in the 1970s which affected the Council along with many other institutions, was the growing demand for a new and more formal career structure providing for a scale of official gradings and promotions, provision for salary reviews and appeals for various levels of staff, and also for a systematic policy for appointments, tenure and training. As Cell Board Chairman, Phillips served ex officio on the Training and Manpower Committee, some of whose meetings he chaired.
Both before and after his period on Council, Phillips was frequently involved with MRC affairs as grant assessor, member of visiting subcommittees, participant in discussions and the like; some of the material reflects in its datespan this wider service.
In addition to the conferences and discussion meetings at NCUACS 45.1.94/N.53-NCUACS 45.1.94/N.64, material relating to several larger-scale conferences organised or shared by the Council are in Section G.
MRC grant or equipment applications or extensions, including those referred specifically to Phillips as Cell Board Chairman, and also material dealing with staff gradings, appointments, promotions and appeals are in Section R.
Phillips's official contacts with MRC as Chairman of ABRC are documented in Section O.

SUBCOMMITTEES, REVIEW GROUPS, WORKING PARTIES  [no ref. or date]

Cell Board Subcommittee on Molecular Biology  [no ref.]  1974-77

Contents:
At its meeting on 16 October 1974 the Cell Board agreed to set up a committee to review the field of molecular biology with special reference to the future work of the Laboratory of Molecular Biology. Some of the factors contributing to this decision were the coming retirement (in 1979) of the Chairman M.F. Perutz, proposals for an increase in the establishment of the Division of Protein Chemistry (F. Sanger, C. Milstein) and the secondment of J.C. Kendrew, Head of the Division of Structural Studies, to the Directorship of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory.
Phillips was Chairman of the subcommittee; the other members were W.F. Bodmer and B.R. Rabin (Cell Board), K. Burton (SRC), R. Dulbecco, H. Harris, A.F. Huxley, H.L. Kornberg and M.H.F. Wilkins. The agreed terms of reference were:
(a) To advise the Board on the formulation of Council policy for the future support of research in molecular biology, both in the United Kingdom, in universities and in the research institutes, and internationally
(b) In view of Dr. Perutz's retirement (in 1979) as Director of the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, to have special regard for the future programmes of the Laboratory
(c) To consult Dr. Perutz and the staff of the Laboratory of Molecular Biology and, as may be appropriate, any others.
The subcommittee deferred its first meeting until 21 July 1975, when the report of a Cell Board subcommittee visit on 16 April to the Division of Cell Biology at the Laboratory was to hand; Phillips was a member of this subcommittee, which was chaired by Sir John Gray (NCUACS/45/1/94/N.23).
Six meetings in all were held, including a major visitation to the Laboratory on 12 January 1976 when consultations were held with the staff and oral and written submissions were received.
After considerable redrafting, the subcommittee's report was submitted to the Board in July 1976. At its meeting on 23 March 1977 the Board agreed with the proposal to produce an edited version of the report for circulation to those who had given evidence to the subcommittee.
The Training and Manpower Committee also considered the recommendation of the subcommittee at its meeting on 25 November 1976 (see NCUACS/45/1/94/N.20).
The material below furnishes a full account of the deliberations of the subcommittee and includes correspondence, submissions, drafts and many documents annotated by Phillips and other colleagues. The importance Phillips attached to the assignment can be seen from the manuscript headnotes on some of the files.

European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL)  [no ref.]  1975-88

Contents:
The Council was closely involved in the affairs of the Laboratory. It was the financial channel for the UK contribution to its funding and in this capacity sent delegates to the EMB Conferences; it also had its own subcommittees such as the Users Subcommittee to review the scientific proposals put forward by EMBL. Further close links were maintained less formally through Council members who were themselves members of the parent organisation EMBO, or of the EMBL Council or Scientific Advisory Committee.
Phillips fell into both these categories. He was a UK delegate to the EMB Conference, first Chairman of the Users Subcommittee, and a member of other MRC bodies concerned with EMBL. In addition, he was himself a founder member of EMBO and served on its Council and committees.
The material below relates to the official MRC activities relating to EMBL in which he took part, and was addressed to him as such. For his membership of EMBO and involvement in its affairs in his personal capacity see NCUACS/45/1/94/K.11-NCUACS/45/1/94/K.13.

ABRC SUBMISSIONS AND ADVICE  [no ref. or date]

Contents:
These folders comprise material relating to ABRC's official advice to successive Secretaries of State for Education and Science. This includes reports on 'Science and Public Expenditure' offered annually at the outset of each Public Expenditure Survey (PES), 'Forward Looks and advance budgeting, and detailed allocation advice on the distribution of the science budget once the PES outcome was known at the end of the calendar year. This timetable could fluctuate under special political or economic events but was broadly adhered to.
The material is primarily official correspondence, memoranda, meetings and discussions, drafts and comments on the reports; it may, however, include representations, correspondence etc. from individuals and colleagues in addition to those from established scientific bodies.
The extent and proportion of the documentation varies. In years when ABRC recommendations appeared controversial and aroused sometimes intense public interest, the degree of 'outside' or private correspondence could be considerable. In such cases it has been retained along with the official material, and attention is drawn in the appropriate entries (see especially material for 1987 and 1990).
The papers are presented chronologically. Many or most of the topics referred to under Research Council or Government Department headings elsewhere are here brought together for decision.

1987  [no ref. or date]

Contents:
The material for this year is extensive. Phillips submitted his discussion document 'A strategy for the Science Base' to the Secretary of State (K. Baker) on 6 May. Consideration of the document was held up by the general election, and it was not published until 20 July.
The document proved controversial. Among its recommendations were:
The differentiation of higher education institutions into Type R (full range of research activity), Type T (teaching) and Type X (teaching and research in a limited range of fields)
The development of inter-disciplinary research centres
Responsibility for research support costs to be transferred from universities to the Research Councils thus ending the 'dual-support' funding system.
These were the principal areas of comment and debate among the scientific and higher education communities. Many representations and comments, some very hostile, were received both at the time and in subsequent years.
Because the ripples cast by the report continued for so long, the material in NCUACS 45.1.94/O.189-NCUACS 45.1.94/O.193 extends beyond the strict limit of the calendar year.

Contents:
The ABRC advice for this year aroused controversy and hostile reaction. As the Government's science budget remained substantially the same in real terms as in 1990-91, reductions in some programmes had to be recommended. One of these was the termination of some projects at the Nuclear Structure Facility at Daresbury. This attracted much unfavourable comment both in the press and from scientific colleagues. Phillips wrote an article explaining the roles of ABRC and the Research Councils published in New Scientist

1993 WHITE PAPER AND BOUNDARY STUDY  [no ref. or date]

Contents:
The General Election of May 1992 was followed by the announcement of previously unheralded changes in government organisation of education and science. The Department of Education and Science (DES), to whose Secretaries of State Phillips had hitherto addressed the ABRC's advice, became the Department for Education (DFE), and responsibility for science and technology was transferred to the newly-created Office of Science and Technology (OST) under the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister of Public Service and Science (W. Waldegrave) with a seat in the cabinet.
The Chancellor put in train a major review of the structure and funding of British science and its relationships with government, including the roles of its advisory bodies and the Research Councils. Submissions were widely invited (reputedly about 800 were received) from the whole range of institutions and individuals, and a White Paper Realising our potential. A Strategy for Science, Engineering and Technology was published on 26 May 1993 as Command 2250. The White Paper, the first major policy review of the field for over 20 years, met with general approval in the scientific community. Among its many recommendations were the re-organisation of the existing advisory bodies: ACOST was to be developed into the new Council for Science and Technology, and ABRC was to be subsumed into the OST with a new post of Director-General of Research Councils. The dual-funding system was to be maintained for the support of university research. The number of Research Councils was to be increased from five to six with a re-drawing of the boundaries between them and their detailed allocation of responsibilities.
The task of chairing the study of Research Council reconstruction and the determination of the areas of responsibility between the new Councils before they came into being in April 1994 was entrusted to Phillips by the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster shortly after the publication of the White Paper, and was completed by mid-July.
The material below provides a detailed record of these events in British science policy. It is somewhat less full for the preparation of the White Paper (NCUACS 45.1.94/O.204-NCUACS 45.1.94/O.211) since this was compiled by OST and the ABRC input was only one, albeit crucial, source. For the Boundary Study, however, which was produced by ABRC itself, the information is much more diverse. The folders at NCUACS 45.1.94/O.212-NCUACS 45.1.94/O.219 include institutional and individual correspondence and submissions as well as official material and drafts.

Boundary Study  [no ref. or date]

Contents:
The entries here conform to the disposition of material as received in tagged bundles from Phillips. His descriptive titles, for some of the items, have been retained and are quoted as appropriate.
Preliminary arrangements for the Boundary Study had been under way before the White Paper was published on 26 May; Phillips had been approached to chair the study and had agreed to do so, his appointment being announced to the House of Commons by the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster on 16 June. He was asked to undertake the task 'as if fulfilling the role of the new Director General of the Research Councils' and not as Chairman of the ABRC, and was supported by the resources of the ABRC Secretariat and of the Science Base Group of the Office of Science and Technology (OST).
The timescale was a tight one. Letters were sent to HORCs on 4 June requesting an analysis of their respective Council's interpretation of the White Paper in respect of the mission and areas of responsibility of the restructured Councils (replies to be forwarded by 11 June). On 7 June a similar letter was sent to Departmental Chief Scientific Advisers. On the basis of their replies, and of material already assembled for the White Paper, an early draft was prepared (23 June), which formed the basis of meetings with HORCs 25-29 June and was also circulated on 4 July to a considerable number of individuals and key organisations, members of research councils, advisory boards etc. requesting comments by 12 July.
The replies (including some sent in unsolicited before the circulation of the draft report) were analysed by OST, and on the basis of these and all other material the final report was drafted and sent to the Chancellor on 16 July.

MEMORANDA AND MEETINGS 1982-93  [no ref. or date]

Contents:
This material was received piecemeal from Phillips and is complementary to that included elsewhere under ABRC business and meetings. It comprises exchanges, whether in the form of letters or memoranda, with staff, officials and ministers, principally at ABRC and the Department of Education and Science, the Office of Science and Technology, and the Cabinet Office. Other ministries are occasionally also involved.
The 1982 material was sent to Phillips as background information before he took up his appointment in January 1983.

GENERAL CORRESPONDENCE 1983-93  [no ref. or date]

Contents:
This is a chronological sequence of letters and information sent to Phillips as Chairman of ABRC. They do not emanate from government sources, though some might be termed 'semi-official' such as requests to receive science representatives or distinguished visitors from abroad, or to attend gatherings or discussions on matters of general interest in the field of science policy.
The content of the material is very miscellaneous. It ranges from relatively minor exchanges about reports, information, publicity, conferences, personal and social contacts to more substantial correspondence with colleagues in academia and industry, mainly in UK but also in USA, on research funding, PES decisions and the like.

SECTION P CORRESPONDENCE  NCUACS 45.1.94/P.1-P.304  [n.d.]

Contents:
NCUACS 45.1.94/P.1-NCUACS 45.1.94/P.292 SCIENTIFIC AND GENERAL CORRESPONDENCE
Correspondence with individuals and organisations, in alphabetical order, dated and indexed, with an indication of any information of particular biographical, scientific or historical interest.
NCUACS 45.1.94/P.293-NCUACS 45.1.94/P.296 SHORTER SCIENTIFIC CORRESPONDENCE
Indexed, in alphabetical order.
NCUACS 45.1.94/P.297-NCUACS 45.1.94/P.304 UNINDEXED CORRESPONDENCE
In chronological order.
The folders in the main sequence at NCUACS 45.1.94/P.1-NCUACS 45.1.94/P.292 are essentially concerned with aspects of protein research in hand or projected, in UK or abroad. They may include ideas, drafts or data for research and publications, some in collaboration; arrangements for short or long term visits to Phillips's laboratory, or to conferences and meetings; career and appointments; some personal news may also be included.
The progress of Phillips's research interests can be seen in exchanges with colleagues at different periods; in this way the correspondence provides a useful complement to material elsewhere in the collection. Examples would be work on diffractometers (correspondence with U.W. Arndt), myoglobin (C.L. Coulter, J.C. Kendrew, M.G. Rossmann, B.E. Strandberg, H.C. Watson), lysozyme (R.E. Canfield, R.B. Corey, R. Diamond, R.E. Dickerson, P. Jollès, C. Tanford) and, latterly, science policy. On a personal level, the correspondence with long-term friends such as J.D. Dunitz and F.M. Richards is of interest, and the extensive material relating to W.L. Bragg further testifies to the close contact made in the decade 1956-66 when Phillips worked at the Royal Institution while Bragg was Director.
Like other documents in the collection, many of the letters were circulated to leading colleagues in the laboratory for their advice and comment, and may bear notes from, in particular, C.C.F. Blake, L.N. Johnson and R.E. Offer.
The 'Shorter Scientific Correspondence' at NCUACS 45.1.94/P.293-NCUACS 45.1.94/P.296 is similar in content to that of the main sequence but less developed and more specifically concerned with research in hand. Brief exchanges such as requests for reprints or information, permission to borrow or quote from published materials, models and the like appear as unindexed correspondence at NCUACS 45.1.94/P.297-NCUACS 45.1.94/P.304.
It should be noted that while some of the folders may include references to science policy and funding, the main bulk of Phillips's correspondence on these matters is in Section O.

Correspondence with, and related to, Bragg
Letter of 1960 is from New Zealand during a lecture tour by Bragg; letters of 1963 are from Bragg and Lady Bragg on the death of Phillips's father; letter of 1965 is on lysozyme structure.
The bulk of the correspondence relates to 1967-71 when Bragg had retired from the Royal Institution and Phillips and his team had moved to Oxford. It deals mainly with arrangements for visits, lectures and meetings, filming, publications, comments on research in progress and the like. Reference is also made to the Hemming-Lee benefaction arranged personally by Bragg to make up the salary deficit at Oxford of former MRC-funded Royal Institution workers (see NCUACS 45.1.94/E.2) and to Bragg's obituary of Lee. Correspondence 1969-71 refers to Bragg's plans for his book on the development of x-ray analysis left unfinished on his death in 1971 and completed for publication by Phillips and H. Lipson (NCUACS 45.1.94/P.26, NCUACS 45.1.94/P.27).
Despite their long and close association, Bragg continued to use the formal mode of address by surname until 21 March 1967 when he first ventured on to the more familiar 'David' (with a relapse to 'Phillips' in October 1970).
Correspondence 1991 is a request for a Bragg autograph.

Contents:
This book was in an advanced state, but not completed, when Bragg died. One of his last acts before entering hospital in June 1971 was to send Phillips the manuscript for comment. After Bragg's death on 1 July Phillips undertook to see the book through the press, assisted (from October 1971) by H. Lipson. The manuscript proved to need a degree of editing and revision and, after various publication delays, was published by G. Bell in October 1975.

This period covers the research on lysozyme leading up to the first paper by Phillips's team at 6Å resolution (Nature 196, 1173-1178, 1962). As well as the research at the Royal Institution, similar work was proceeding under the direction of Dickerson (Urbana, Illinois), R.B. Corey (California Institute of Technology) and P. Jollès (Paris). The correspondence discusses the progress of research, exchanges of data, possible simultaneous publication, draft of the Nature paper and comments on it (includes comment from M.F. Perutz that it 'has already reached a state of perfection on which I find myself unable to improve, and it only remains for me to congratulate you on this beautiful piece of work.'), draft of short note on triclinic lysozyme by Dickerson et al intended for simultaneous publication in Nature.

Contents:
Richards, based in the Department of Molecular Biology and Biophysics at Yale University from 1955 until his retirement in 1991, was one of Phillips's oldest friends and colleagues. They collaborated in various research programmes, and on the proposed Atlas of Molecular Biology for Oxford University Press (only partly achieved, see NCUACS 45.1.94/F.95, NCUACS 45.1.94/F.96).
Richards spent a year in Phillips's Department 1967-68 as a Visiting Fellow at All Souls and was Hinshelwood Lecturer in 1985; Phillips was a frequent visitor to Yale when his travel schedule allowed. Richards and his wife Sally were enthusiastic sailors, and Phillips joined them for sailing holidays off the US Eastern seaboard (though not when they crossed the Atlantic in their yacht on their way to their sabbatical leave in Oxford). This episode, and other scientific and personal recollections of their long association, are recalled in Phillips's speech at Richards's Retirement Symposium in June 1991 (NCUACS 45.1.94/G.427). Richards attended, and gave the closing remarks at, the meeting on Protein Structure and Function in honour of Phillips at Oxford in July 1991 (NCUACS 45.1.94/A.52).
Correspondence, mainly on scientific and publication topics but including a little personal material and some letters from Richards's wife.

Williams, R.J.P. and others
Williams was a lecturer in Inorganic Chemistry, Oxford, and Fellow of Wadham College when Phillips moved to Oxford (1966). He subsequently held the Royal Society Napier Research Fellowship while still based at the Inorganic Chemistry Department at Oxford. He was active in establishing the Oxford Enzyme Group and was an enthusiastic participant in its, and other, collaborative research projects, while retaining an outspoken independence of mind towards the organisation and funding of research and of university education at Oxford and in general. His views and his expression of them often brought him into conflict with others, including Phillips, notably over the concept and creation of Interdisciplinary Research Centres.
The material includes grant applications, research reports, drafts and ideas, and many manuscript letters or notes (sometimes more than one per day), not all dated.
