Archival history The history of the collection is long, complex and in many respects uncertain. The following dates and stages may be distinguished.
In 1945 Cherwell took to Oxford his wartime papers, which are referred to in correspondence of that year with T. Wilson (see F.85). The files were given some listing on receipt at the Clarendon Laboratory by two members of Cherwell's staff (J.R. Parkinson and N.B. Giles), but no incontrovertible dated evidence remains of that ordering.
Cherwell frequently consulted the material at the request of other historians, in particular Churchill, to verify specific matters of the history of the war (see, interalia, D.117, F.87, G.348, G.437-440, G.550, J.97, K.69, K.241) but always refused to write his own account of his career or work.
In 1948 typescript copies were made from the originals of some of Cherwell's minutes to Churchill for 1939 - 42; this was arranged with T. Wilson and is also referred to in his correspondence with Cherwell in item F.85. The copies themselves appear at F.217 - F.228.
In 1957 Cherwell died, a bachelor, in his rooms at Christ Church, Oxford. In his will he left his papers to his elder brother, Brigadier Charles Lindemann, with the proviso that, in the event of his brother's predeceasing him, he would like Sir Donald MacDougall to have the papers. At the time of Cherwell's death, Brigadier Lindemann was in the U.S. and in poor health, and in 1961 the papers were deposited by Sir Donald MacDougall in the Library of Nuffield College, Oxford, of which he was a Fellow. Before this they had been first at Christ Church and from 1958 - 61 in the care of Lord Birkenhead, author of the official life of Cherwell, The Prof in two worlds (Collins 1961). When Charles Lindemann died in 1970, the English-Speaking Union was his residuary legatee; the Union has retained the copyright of Cherwell's personal papers, but has left the papers with Nuffield College on indefinite loan.
Before transfer from Christ Church to Lord Birkenhead the papers were examined by P.J. Searby who had been Private Secretary to Lord Cherwell as Paymaster General 1952 - 53 and had exercised oversight of the papers subsequently issued to Lord Cherwell as Part-time Member of the U.K. Atomic Energy Authority from 1954 until his death in 1957. While no formal review of the papers was undertaken at this time, some material of particular sensitivity was removed (see H.174) to official Archives and partial Minute Sheets were made for a small number of the correspondence files. A further examination also covering some additional papers was carried out in about 1960 in conjunction with Lord Birkenhead's Research Assistant, Miss Otto; to this latter period would appear to belong the numerical sequences written in very large blue pencil characters on some of the manuscripts.
In 1961 Birkenhead published the official life of Cherwell, for which he had had access to the papers, referring to them in the footnotes to his book as 'Cherwell Archives'. He and his research assistants made various notes on aspects of Cherwell's life and work (see A.30, A.128, F.22) and brief biographical outlines of some of his correspondents, several of which remain in the relevant folders.
In 1965 - 66 a further major sorting and review took place, by J.M. Pye, Official Archivist, United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority, advised by P.J. Searby, and an outline list was drawn up. The main principle adopted was a division into 'Official' and 'Personal', primarily for considerations of security for government papers included in Cherwell's material. Thus the 'Official' papers (OFF. in the outline list) were deemed to be those relating to Cherwell's service in the Churchill wartime and postwar administrations, and the 'Personal' files (PERS. in the outline list) would be concerned with Cherwell's scientific, academic and social life. This distinction, implemented on broad lines and on an essentially chronological basis, was never absolute. OFF. and PERS. files overlapped in subject-matter, correspondent, origin or simply the taking of multiple carbon copies. PERS. files might contain political or official material, while OFF. files could include minor social or personal items which happened to bear a wartime date.
A certain degree of 'weeding' also took place in the course of this review; see A.17, E.22, F.2 for notes of material destroyed.
Since the 1965 - 66 review, the papers (chiefly those in the OFF. sections) have been consulted by historians of science, biographers of Churchill, students of the Second World War, and others. Several of these appear to have left notes or markings on the manuscripts, and may have further disturbed their order. In addition, the material has been reviewed periodically by the Cabinet Office in order to re- or de-classify government papers as they became available to readers under the 30-year rule or other appropriate regulation. The latest of these reviews was in 1980, and it has largely eliminated the distinction between OFF. and PERS. files imposed in 1965.
This last consideration, coupled with the facts that Cherwell's original ordering of his papers could no longer be traced, and that the existing files were of unmanageable bulk and disparate content, prompted the decision to undertake a fundamental re-sorting of the whole collection. The papers are now presented as shown in the List of Contents.
In order to help researchers who had already consulted the papers and made references on the basis of the 1965 - 66 listing, and at the request of Nuffield College, a Conspectus of file-numbers has been compiled for all papers assigned to the OFF. files (see the note on the Conspectus below). The PERS. files are not included in the Conspectus, mainly because fewer readers to date have wished to consult those sections of the collection. It is hoped that a reading of the catalogue entries (now much more comprehensive) and index of correspondents will enable users to identify such material and indeed to locate other papers on the same topic which they had not previously been able to trace.
Many of the documents bear an array of annotations, identifications, suggestions for date or recipient, numerical sequences, etc. in black, red or blue pencil, ink or ball-point pen. These have not been erased, but they bear no relation to the present arrangement. The only relevant indications now on the papers are the OFF. numbers, in pencil at the head of the sheet where required.
Creators Lindemann, Frederick Alexander, 1st Viscount Cherwell, 1886-1957, scientist and physicist
Bibliography Several biographical accounts of Cherwell have already been published and are mentioned here in chronological order. The Memoir by G.P. Thomson (Biographical Memoirs of Fellows of the Royal Society, 4, 1958) concentrates primarily on Cherwell's scientific career in peace and war, though as one of Cherwell's oldest personal friends (indeed, almost the only remaining early colleague who had maintained continuous friendly relations with him) he was also able to include some biographical material.
R.F. Harrod's The Prof (Macmillan 1959), is subtitled 'A Personal memoir of Lord Cherwell' and described by the author as 'drawing on my own recollections only'. As a Student of Christ Church, 1924 - 67, Harrod had many contacts with Cherwell, and his book contributes many anecdotes of Cherwell's personality, and his part in social and political events from the Thirties onwards. Harrod was especially closely associated with Cherwell during the latter's Conservative political campaigns of 1935 - 36, and with the Prime Minister's Statistical Branch from 1 January 1940 until early 1942.
Birkenhead's The Prof in two worlds (Collins 1961), is the official life, drawing on manuscript sources, recollections by family, colleagues, politicians and others. It is the fullest account extant, and has been drawn upon, and quoted, from time to time in compiling this catalogue.

Administrative history:
BY ANY OTHER NAME
F.A. Lindemann took the title of Cherwell of Oxford when he was created Baron in 1941. It was under this name that he became a national figure as adviser and minister to Churchill, though his scientific colleagues continued to think of him as Lindemann. Despite his love and respect for his father and elder brother among his immediate family, it is likely that he was not reluctant to replace a name with Germanic resonances (and which had often been the subject of wounding reflections and unfounded gossip) with a title expressing his identification with Oxford and his intense patriotism for Britain, particularly in time of war. In the narratives and entries of this catalogue he is referred to consistently as Cherwell, though both names appear on the reference title at the head of each page.
It was not, however, only his surname which Cherwell appears to have found uncomfortable. More unaccountably, his two imperial forenames, Frederick Alexander, were also shunned, and he tended to sign letters with initials only. The family pet-name for him was 'Peach' and it is not surprising that only a very few close friends (such as the Egertons) ever learnt or ventured to write it, though Cherwell himself signed his early letters to his father in this way. Tizard, in the early days of their friendship, addressed him as 'Lindy', and Cherwell's much-loved elder brother Charles sometimes wrote to 'My dear Old Man', but Cherwell did not encourage intimacy; the name 'Prof', with or without the definite article and abbreviation mark, and variously spelt with single and double 'f', was hit upon apparently by Lady Eleanor Smith (see Birkenhead, The Prof in two worlds, pp.128-129) and seems in retrospect an inspired solution. It enabled him to hide his personality behind a function, yet conveyed in its abbreviated form an affectionate informality. At all events, it became his 'name' for personal and social purposes for the rest of his life.
Like Cherwell himself, many of the political and social figures who appear in his papers changed their names by succession to hereditary titles or by the award of honours. Some, such as H.R. Trevor-Roper, now Lord Dacre, have done so while the catalogue was in preparation. In such cases, names are given in the Index under both the patronymic and the title of honour, the reference numbers being listed under the name borne by the writer at the time when the correspondence (or the greater part of it) was conducted. Thus, F. Pakenham is listed under P with a cross-reference under Longford, Trevor-Roper under T cross-referenced under Dacre, D. Sandys under S cross-referenced under Duncan-Sandys, A.Lennox-Boyd under L cross-referenced under Boyd of Merton.

SECTION J POLITICS AND THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY J.1 - J.163
SECTION K PERSONAL AND SOCIAL CORRESPONDENCE K.1 - K.327
Sections A and K of the collection deal mainly with Cherwell's personal and social life. Of interest are his pilot's logbooks (A.11, A.12) documenting his tuition as a pilot at Netheravon in 1916. It is characteristic that there are, mysteriously, two of these and that they should give varying information. The first (A.11) records instruction starting on 9 September 1916 with a 'First Solo' on 16th and two other solo flights on 16th and 17th, followed by another 'First Solo' on 22nd. The other log (A.12) covers only eight days (20-28 September 1916) and also records a 'First Solo' on 22nd. This entry has been ringed by a previous researcher and seems to have been taken hitherto as the correct date of Cherwell's first solo flight. Section A also contains family correspondence showing Cherwell's close relations with his father, A.F. Lindemann, and his elder brother, C.L. Lindemann, and material relating to some of his own idiosyncrasies of diet and health, lordly modes of travel, and the considerable wealth which underpinned his independence of mind. There is also evidence of his generosity to his personal servants, to staff and colleagues (and their families) at the Clarendon Laboratory, and the many discreet, almost surreptitious, benefactions he dispensed. Section K confirms this by the numerous letters of thanks for Christmas, birthday, 'non-birthday' or wedding presents received not only from Cherwell's own friends but from their young families. It is greatly to be regretted that very few of Cherwell's own letters survive in this Section, presumably because they were handwritten and no carbon copies were kept.
Section B is primarily concerned with Cherwell at Oxford, as Head of the Clarendon Laboratory, Fellow of Wadham, resident at Christ Church and involved in various aspects and controversies of the University. It documents his struggles to obtain equipment, posts, funding and building for the laboratory, his initiative in identifying and encouraging Jewish scientists wishing or obliged to leave Germany when the Nazis came to power, and his consequent negotiations with the university, industrialists and politicians to provide research funds, space and equipment. The resulting excellence of the Clarendon Laboratory (notably in low temperature research) is well known. Cherwell also helped to make it possible for the young R.V. Jones to carry out there his early infrared research (see the correspondence in D.123 - D.125).
Cherwell's skill as a polemicist is shown in different fields and with different degrees of credit, in his rearguard action over premises in Keble Road, Oxford, originally leased for a research project, and in his contributions to the public controversy over the draconian proposal to solve Oxford's traffic problems by a road through Christ Church Meadow. Section J supplies further illustration of Cherwell's enjoyment of in-fighting in prewar Oxford Conservative politics.
As a counterbalance to this almost too well-known side of his character, Section B contains (B.126) a few drafts for speeches given in his later more mellow years at social gatherings at Christ Church. Here, on a relatively small stage and with congenial listeners, his wit - often recalled by friends but not otherwise recorded - is well displayed, steering a delicate course between raillery and mockery, choosing appropriate anecdotes and references and achieving with grace the difficult balance required by such intimate, semi-domestic occasions.
Sections C and D, together with parts of Section E, relate to Cherwell as a scientist. They show him in several lights. His début in research could hardly have been more auspicious, when he was chosen by Nernst in 1908 for the team in Berlin working on specific heat and low temperatures. He published collaborative papers with Nernst and became a lifelong friend of him and his family. To this time also belongs his affectionate, and similarly lifelong, friendship with Einstein; many of Cherwell's notes, lectures and articles are concerned with explaining and gaining acceptance of Einstein's theories among the general educated public. This period of 'pure' research was ended by the outbreak of war in 1914; later, Cherwell worked on aspects of meteorology and astronomy, sometimes in collaboration with his father, and his early brilliance in research was recognised by his election to the Chair of Experimental Philosophy at Oxford in 1919, and to the Fellowship of the Royal Society in 1920. Many of the surviving drafts and papers of these early years are in German.
Another aspect shows Cherwell as an ingenious inventor and patenter of contrivances and designs. Many of these arose from his work at Farnborough during the 1914-18 war, or from private research in the laboratory of the Lindemann family home at Sidmouth.
The scientific correspondence (Section D) reflects in its patchiness the ambiguous position Cherwell occupied in the eyes of some of his scientific colleagues. Some felt that he had ceased to do productive research after about 1924, others that he was damagingly preoccupied with rank, high society and political manoeuvring. His declared support for the Conservative party is also likely to have contributed to his isolation from a considerable proportion of the scientific community during the Thirties. There remain, however, interesting exchanges with W.F. Aston, G.I. Taylor, W.H. Nernst, J.L. Tuck and others; the material in D.53 - D.69, while concerned mainly with visits and lectures by Einstein, testifies to the mutual respect and affection between him and Cherwell.
Section E includes some additional scientific writings, of a more general and popular kind than those in Section C, but more importantly shows Cherwell as an embattled defender of the importance to the life of the community of science, scientific research, and the scientific habit of mind. He campaigned endlessly for more money and more respect for the scientist - in early years somewhat negatively by decrying what seemed the opposed values of a 'classical' education, and in later life more positively by pressing for the expansion of technological education through new universities or institutions. His last piece of work (E.100) was devoted to this subject. See also G.526 - G.533, H.236 - H.253 for Cherwell's wartime activities in this field.
It is, however, for his friendship with Churchill and its political consequences that Cherwell is most widely known. Begun in 1921, the friendship continued with no diminution of regard on either side, and despite staggering disparities of temperament and habit, until Cherwell's death. The episode of the aged Churchill's insistence on attending the funeral service and ceremony in 1957 has been referred to in the published biographies of Cherwell.
This friendship permeated much of Cherwell's life, and its documentation is in consequence diffused through many Sections of the collection. The correspondence in Section K shows the personal aspect of the relationship, Churchill's use of Cherwell as a source of information and advice, and Cherwell's acceptance by the whole Churchill clan as a warm family friend. The political relations between the two begin and end in Section J, firstly in the 1920s and 1930s, and later from 1945 to 1953 when Cherwell was an adviser to Churchill's Consultative Committee in opposition, or in office as Paymaster-General in his administrations. Between these comes the 1939 - 45 Second World War which is very fully documented in Sections F, G and H.
These three Sections are best considered as a unit. Apart from some preliminary material (F.1 - F.39) concerned with increasing anxiety during the interwar years about the problem of air defence in war, and the various solutions proposed (including papers on the 'Tizard Committee'), all three relate to the work of the Statistical Branch, later known as the Statistical Section. This was formed at Churchill's request to assemble and assimilate statistics and data and to present them to him in accessible, rapidly intelligible form, originally in his capacity as First Lord of the Admiralty and then as Prime Minister. A minute detailing the functions of the organisation is quoted in the Introduction to Section F and included at F.41.
Broadly speaking, Section F contains the material presented by the Statistical Section to Churchill in its final form - as a graph, chart or diagram, and/or a personal minute from Cherwell to Churchill, sometimes accompanied by a draft minute or recommendation to be sent by Churchill to the appropriate minister. These documents provide an interesting picture of the working relationship between Cherwell and Churchill throughout the period 1939 - 45.
The charts or minutes were the distillation of the wide-ranging activity of the Statistical Section and rested on background research through committee or departmental papers, official correspondence, information from scientific colleagues, etc. This background material, which provides fuller information than the summary minutes, occupies Sections G (scientific and military topics) and H (economic topics). The separate Introductions to all three Sections, and to many of their sub-sections, explain in more detail the nature and interest of the material, which enables the advice tendered by Cherwell and the Statistical Section - frequently the target of adverse criticism both at the time and subsequently - to be substantiated or placed in perspective by its contemporary research and thinking.
It is unfortunate that so few of Cherwell's own letters survive in any Section of the collection. Incoming letters in Section K make clear how successful he could be in society. He was often derided for collecting Duchesses, and may well have done so initially; but they for their part seem to have been reluctant to let him go.
CONSPECTUS OF FILE NUMBERS
As explained in the General Introduction, the Conspectus was compiled to assist readers and researchers who had already consulted and made reference to Cherwell's papers on the basis of the 1965-66 outline list.
The Conspectus relates the OFF. (= Official) numbers, which are listed in the left-hand column, to the present item-numbers, which are listed on the right. The presence of on item-number indicates that the folder of that number in the present catalogue includes one or more pieces which had originally been in the OFF. file. Every document in question can be identified by the former OFF. number in pencil at the head.
Exact duplicates have been discarded in order to ease pressure on library space. When, as frequently happened, multiple copies were taken with the result that a letter or document might feature in one or more OFF. (and sometimes also PERS.) files, all the relevant OFF, numbers appear on the remaining paper.
It will be seen that the contents of many of the OFF, files (e.g.OFF.21.1, 38.1) are now widely distributed; that is because they were often unmanageably large and (correctly) designated 'miscellaneous' or 'general correspondence'. Conversely, many of the present folders have been assembled from a variety of OFF. and PERS. files; examples of this are G.26, G.28 (on the size of the German Air Force), D.23, D.24 (correspondence with M. Born), D.194 (correspondence with A.P. Rowe), D.245, D.246 (correspondence with J.L. Tuck), K.40 (correspondence with Brabazan of Tara), K.186 (correspondence with I. Lubin). It is hoped that the smaller size and more rational arrangement of the present folders will make the material simpler to use.

Cherwell was reluctant to serve as a member of the Government, and would have preferred to help Churchill as a private advisor.

In October 1953 he reluctantly accepted Cherwell's resignation

Correspondence with A.F. Lindemann (father)  CSAC 80.4.81/A.91-A.93  c.1899-1927

The correspondence is therefore personal and scientific in the fullest sense. Cherwell had great respect and affection for his father and writes very openly about his work, career plans and activities.

Administrative history:
Cherwell (then F.A. Lindemann) was elected Professor of Experimental Philosophy in April 1919 (A.20 - A.23). The condition of the Clarendon Laboratory, and the poor reputation of the study of physics at Oxford when he arrived, have been commented upon in published biographies and obituaries. He quickly began to organise the removal of obsolete apparatus and the acquisition of more up-to-date equipment partly from surplus military stores, partly from accumulated university funds, and partly from industrial manufacturers among his personal friends. Although the reputation of the laboratory grew and improved, receiving new impetus from the German refugee scientists whom Cherwell encouraged to settle there from 1933 onwards, funding continued to be a problem occupying much of Cherwell's time, diplomatic skill and social activity (see B.14 - B.25).
During the Second World War, the Laboratory, now housed in its new building (B.13, B.26 - B.32) was run on Cherwell's behalf largely by T.C. Keeley, though Cherwell continued to devote as much of his own time to its working as was then practicable, keeping a specially keen eye on plans for postwar science and funding (B.42 - B.47). The end of Cherwell's period of service at the Clarendon Laboratory was greatly saddened by the death of his successor, Sir Francis Simon.

Correspondence, 1941-53, re premises at 7 Keble Road, Oxford, leased in the 1930s by Cherwell from the University (the ground landlord) and used for the business of Oxford Instrument Company (see C.54, D.135). The premises were requisitioned in 1941 by Oxford City Council, and the remainder of the lease was eventually bought by the University (which had turned down the proposition in 1941) after protracted difficulty and litigation.
Cherwell's letters of 17 May 1947 and 16 May 1950 give a clear account of his side of the complicated story.

Includes press-cuttings.

WADHAM COLLEGE  CSAC 80.4.81/B.120-B.123  1919-56

Arrangement: Cherwell's Chair at Oxford, to which he was appointed in 1919, was attached to Wadham College; accordingly, he took up residence there after various difficulties over improvement to the set of rooms assigned to him, and remained a Fellow and Member of the Governing Body until 1956, when he resigned his chair and was elected an honorary member.
In 1921, however, he was offered a Studentship (= Fellowship) and more spacious rooms at Christ Church where he moved the following year and which he came to regard as his only home; see A.79 for special arrangements made to allow him to remain in Christ Church after his retirement. Although he became, in time, one of the oldest and most respected members of Christ Church, it should be noted that he was never a member of the Governing Body of the House; see B.124-B.132 for correspondence on Christ Church affairs.

See also CSAC 80.4.81/A.116, A.117 for correspondence with Christ Church re accommodation for Cherwell's staff.

Administrative history:
Cherwell took up residence in Christ Church in 1922. He was not a member of the Governing Body of the House, which involved a certain dispute over the matter of precedence, in 1927 (B.124), but sat on its special committees from time to time. His social contact with the Duke of Westminster was responsible for the establishment of a Duke of Westminster Research Studentship (B.125, B.126) and his friendship with Einstein helped in encouraging the latter's visits to Oxford in 1931, 1932 and 1933 when he stayed in Christ Church and was elected a Research Student (B.128)
The correspondence is with successive Deans, Censors, Treasurers and Students of the House, and also with personal friends requesting assistance with admission of relatives to the House and their progress there.

Administrative history:
The first holder of the Studentship was E. Bolton King (q.v.); at the conclusion of his tenure in 1930 there was some disagreement about whether the Studentship should continue to carry membership of the Governing Body, but it was eventually decided that it should do so. As time went by, various modifications had to be made to the provisions consequent upon the death of the Duke, the contributions of the University and the House, etc.

CORRESPONDENCE AND PAPERS ON THE OXFORD ROADS PROBLEM  CSAC 80.4.81/B.147-B.166  1953-57

Arrangement: The material is presented chronologically, with a brief indication of content.


Administrative history:
This was a matter of considerable debate at local and national level, involving the Ministries of Transport and Housing and Local Government, as well as Oxford City Council and its Committees, the Oxford Preservation Trust, Oxford University and its colleges. The controversy continued in the press through articles, features and especially the correspondence columns, and there were also broadcast talks and comment.
The problem was the congestion of traffic in the central areas of Oxford. A partial solution, with which the earlier material is mainly concerned, involved the construction of outer by-passes and the development of better independent shopping and entertainment facilities outside the centre, particularly at Cowley. Bitter controversy arose over the necessity, and the siting, of 'inner relief roads'; various plans, some very drastic, were proposed, and in September 1956 Duncan Sandys (now Lord Duncan-Sandys), then Minister of Housing and Local Government, wrote to Oxford City Council requesting submission of a proposal for a road through Christ Church Meadow, and an access road by an extension of Rose Lane. The later material deals with the mobilisation of opposition to this plan.
The correspondence is with local officials, amenity societies, University and college authorities, Ministers, House of Lords colleagues, members of the general public.
In 1953 the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation was A. Lennox-Boyd (now Lord Boyd of Merton) and the Minister of Housing and Local Government was Mr. (now Sir) Harold Macmillan. Several memos. and letters sent to or on behalf of Cherwell bear the signature of P.J. Searby, his London secretary at this time.

Contents:
The material consists of ms. drafts or official reports and specifications, sometimes accompanied by correspondence. Some ideas survive only through references in correspondence, since many early R.A.F./R.A.E. records were destroyed; occasionally Cherwell's correspondents were so discreet in their letters that it is not always possible to determine what project is in question.
Continuing correspondence on various devices and inventions begun at Farnborough has been retained here although Cherwell had moved to Oxford in 1919.

Most of the letters are exchanged with individuals, but some societies, committees and organisations are included; these are indexed under their own name (e.g. Academic Assistance Council, Imperial Chemical Industries) and also under the names of individual correspondents included therein. A note is made of cases where incoming letters have been lost and only Cherwell's carbons survive.
While some of the correspondence is brief and formal, there are some substantial exchanges which complement aspects of Cherwell's career at many stages; such are the exchanges with early scientific colleagues (e.g. Nernst, Aston, Einstein), and collaborators at the Clarendon Laboratory (e.g. Keeley, King, Griffith, Simon, Tuck), and Cherwell's negotiations with industrial firms for financial support (see especially the correspondence with I.C.I.)
Cherwell's work in assisting Jewish scientists of German extraction to leave Nazi Germany and continue their scientific career elsewhere is well known, more particularly in relation to the I.C.I. Fellowships he was able to obtain for a limited number of such cases. He was, however, involved with many others.

Administrative history:
Cherwell was a member of the firm's Research Council until 1939, when his official position obliged him to resign. In addition to giving his advice and collaboration on various research projects with the firm's laboratories, Cherwell was a personal friend of successive Chairmen and officials, and in particular of Sir Harry (later Lord) McGowan and members of the Mond and Melchett families. These personal contacts enabled him in 1933 to obtain the agreement of McGowan to his journey to Germany to interview Jewish scientists wishing to leave the country, and the later financing by I.C.I. of research posts for such refugee scientists, at Oxford and elsewhere. After the Second World War, I.C.I. continued its contribution to research at Oxford and elsewhere through the provision of I.C.I. Fellowships (D.111, D.112).

Contents:
The material includes a few personal exchanges as well as information about research projects, personnel, etc. The correspondence in the 1930s is mainly with McGowan; during the 1940s there are substantial exchanges with Melchett (Henry Mond) on various offensive and defensive weapons under research and development by I.C.I.
There is no surviving correspondence dated 1932.

Related information: See CSAC 80.4.81/A.3 for material relating to Cherwell's studies in Germany.

Administrative history:
Cherwell worked in Nernst's laboratory in Berlin from 1908, as one of the team of scientists and research students investigating the specific heats of substances at low temperatures. Cherwell took his doctorate in Berlin in 1910 and published several collaborative papers with Nernst. Cherwell left Germany at the outbreak of war in 1914 but remained on very friendly terms with Nernst.

Contents:
The correspondence deals with scientific and personal matters; the latter include Nernst's visit to Britain in 1937 and the conferment of an Honorary Degree at Oxford, and matters relating to Nernst's widow Emma and daughters Hilda (Mrs. Cahn, see CSAC 80.4.81/D.32), Edith and Angela (Mrs. Hahn, see CSAC 80.4.81/D.87).
The correspondence consists almost entirely of letters from Nernst, few of Cherwell's replies having survived. Many of the letters bear numbers and/or annotations added by previous users of the collection, and some have translations appended.
Most of the correspondence is in German.

CSAC 80.4.81/E.104-E.137 INVITATIONS AND CORRESPONDENCE 1919 - 57
The material is of heterogeneous nature, including drafts or notes for Cherwell's own speeches, lectures or articles, his many letters to the national and local newspapers, his contributions to debates in the House of Lords, and his memoranda and minutes to ministers or government officials.
The miscellaneous correspondence in this Section (CSAC 80.4.81/E.104 - E.137) includes letters from editors of journals and newspapers, radio producers, publishers, conference organisers, etc. inviting Cherwell to speak, write or attend meetings. He received several requests to write his memoirs, or his recollections of Churchill, all of which he refused.
Several of the later invitations are from schools and educational establishments, and reflect Cherwell's advocacy of an expansion in technological and scientific education. Much of the material from 1950 onwards is concerned with this, and includes (CSAC 80.4.81/E.97, E.98) the various projects for the promotion of higher technological education with funds from the Churchill 80th Birthday Trust, and (CSAC 80.4.81/E.100) the draft for a speech or article on the subject, on which Cherwell was working immediately before his death in July 1957.

SECTION F SECOND WORLD WAR PREPARATIONS AND STATISTICAL SECTION, GENERAL PAPERS  CSAC 80.4.81/F.1 - F.419  [n.d.]

Administrative history:
In October 1939 Cherwell was asked by Churchill, then First Lord of the Admiralty, to assemble a group of economists who would collect and co-ordinate Admiralty and other statistics. The group became known as the First Lord's Statistical Branch ('S' Branch) and the first members (in order of recruitment) were G.D.A. (later Sir Donald) MacDougall, H. Makower, G.L.S. Shackle, H.W. Robinson and D.G. Champernowne. R.F. (later Sir Roy) Harrod joined the group on 1 January 1940; other members included D.M.B. Butt, E.J.S. Clarke, W.A.B. Hopkin, C.M. Kennedy, C.J. Martin, W.R. Merton, J.R. Parkinson, F.R.P. Vinter and T. Wilson.
The functions of 'S Branch' are described in F.41 as follows:
'1. To analyse statistics relating to the Navy and cognate matters and present the results in diagrammatic form both for the information of the First Lord and for his use in discussion.
2. To compile and keep up to date the album of charts and diagrams which the First Lord has circulated to the cabinet ...
3. To answer at short notice questions by the First Lord on any matter involving statistics with which he may have to deal as a member of the War Cabinet and other Committees.
4. To read all cabinet papers on economic matters and draw the attention of the First Lord to points which he might wish to take up.'
When Churchill became Prime Minister in May 1940 he retained 'S Branch' as an independent department outside the normal machinery of government, and it became known as the Prime Minister's Statistical Section, or sometimes, after Cherwell's appointment as Paymaster General in December 1942, as the Office of the Paymaster General. It remained in existence until the change of government in 1945.
Although the scope of the work and the number of staff grew in accordance with the increased importance of the Statistical Section, its essential function remained the collection and distillation of information. Harrod (The Prof, p.221) relates that Churchill wished Cherwell to range over the whole field of the war effort, excluding only military operations and personal appointments and promotions. Much of Cherwell's interest was concentrated on military and scientific problems, and there is a large corpus of material relating to the development, production and use of various weapons and armaments. But he also involved himself in a wide range of economic topics including the efficient use of shipping tonnage, the production of food and raw materials, manpower, negotiations with U.S.A. for military and economic aid and, in the latter stages of the war, in the various problems relating to post-war reconstruction.
Statistics were assembled on all these topics from cabinet papers, departmental minutes and reports, and correspondence with colleagues in government departments and scientific and military establishments. (This background material is now mainly contained in Sections G and H.) In addition, Cherwell and his staff quantified and criticised the available data and assumptions on a wide range of major issues. Some of the famous battles resulting from his questioning of generally accepted views on, for example, the size of the German Air Force, the accuracy of British bombing and the existence and scope of the German V-weapons have been widely discussed in the published literature, and most of them are well documented in Section G (see Introduction to Section G). It is difficult to estimate the effect of Cherwell's quantitative approach to problems that would previously have been considered exclusively the province of the military, but it is interesting to observe that scientists in other fields were using a similar approach, with results such as the recognition of the importance of Operational Research to considerations of military strategy.
The material assembled by the staff of the Statistical Section was conveyed to Churchill in the form of a personal minute from Cherwell, often with a recommendation or a draft minute for Churchill to sign and send to the Minister concerned. Examples of these are to be found passim in Sections G and H, but F.88-F.216 contains a chronological sequence of Cherwell's minutes which appears to have been assembled after the war for the benefit of historians (see General Introduction). Many of these minutes are duplicated elsewhere, but the sequence as a whole presents an interesting general picture of the working relationship between Churchill and Cherwell during this period.
In addition to the minutes, statistics were often presented to Churchill in the form of coloured graphs or charts. Many examples of these have survived, and some appear passim in Sections G and H, but the majority are at F.258-F.394.

Papers from the same period on more specific topics are in Sections G (military and scientific) and H (economic).

PRE-WAR PAPERS ON AIR DEFENCE  CSAC 80.4.81/F.1-F.39  1921-39

Arrangement: The majority of the correspondence in this section was previously kept with Cherwell's 'Personal' papers (see General Introduction) under the general heading of 'Air Defence'. It has been combined with a number of drafts, reports and committee papers from amongst Cherwell's wartime papers, some of which were not previously available to researchers, in order to form a more complete picture of Cherwell's preoccupations and activities during this period.

In his personal memoir of Cherwell (The Prof, pp.189-90), Harrod observes that relations with other departments were not always good to begin with; there were some acrimonious disputes at Cabinet meetings when Churchill put forward figures supplied to him by Cherwell, and these were challenged by the Ministers concerned. Harrod records an interview with Bridges who deplored the amount of time wasted by these disputes, and his own resolution to try to improve the situation. The correspondence documents the establishment of arrangements for the appointment of liaison officers in the various departments, which contributed greatly to a general improvement in relations.

MINUTES EXCHANGED BETWEEN CHERWELL AND CHURCHILL  CSAC 80.4.81/F.88-F.252  1939-45

Arrangement: The minutes are presented in 4 separate sequences


Contents:
CSAC 80.4.81/F.88 -F.216 Minutes from Cherwell to Churchill, 1939-45
These were originally kept in a numbered sequence in very bulky folders, accompanied by a list of contents, and in some cases a subject index. Each folder has been split up into several more manageable units; the indexes and lists of contents have been removed and put together in a single sequence of the beginning of the section (CSAC 80.4.81/F.88-F.94).
CSAC 80.4.81/F.217-F.228 Minutes from Cherwell to Churchill, 1939-42
These are typescript copies of the original minutes in CSAC 80.4.81/F.95-F.168 only, which were made for the benefit of Churchill and other historians (see General Introduction).
CSAC 80.4.81/F.229-F.240 Another set of minutes from Cherwell to Churchill, 1939-45
The majority of these were originally contained in a single bulky folder, unsorted. They are now presented in chronological order, but have been kept as a separate sequence in order to avoid disturbing the indexes, etc. to the main sequence. Some, but not all, of them are duplicated in the main set; a few may be drafts that were not eventually sent to Churchill.
CSAC 80.4.81/F.241-F.252 Minutes from Churchill to Cherwell, 1939-45.
The quantity of material involved has prohibited any attempt at cross-referencing between these minutes and related drafts, etc. in Sections G and H; nevertheless, all the wartime papers are closely interrelated, and material in this Section may sometimes amplify or complement (or even duplicate) material elsewhere in the collection.

Some, but not all, of them are duplicated in the main set (CSAC 80.4.81/F.95-F.216); a few may be drafts that were not eventually sent to Churchill. As with the main set, they cover a wide variety of subjects, and it has not been possible to provide cross-references to other parts of the collection.

CHARTS PREPARED BY THE STATISTICAL SECTION  CSAC 80.4.81/F.258-F.394  [n.d.]

Archival history:
The charts were generally either bound in cloth covers (see e.g. F.297-F.325) or presented in loose leaf binders. Some of the latter have survived intact (e.g. F.365, F.386) but many of their contents were dispersed or superseded and remained in loose piles in no particular order.

Arrangement: The loose charts have been sorted into subject groups for ease of reference and are included with the original albums under the headings listed above. Some of the material is no longer identifiable, particularly in the case of unfinished drafts or copies, such as F.292-F.296.
Many of the charts overlap in subject matter with other papers in Sections G and H but it has not been possible to provide specific cross-references. Charts which were originally included with drafts and correspondence in these Sections have been left in position.


Administrative history:
The majority of these charts were prepared for Churchill, or for presentation to various ministers and government departments at Churchill's request. A number were prepared for President Roosevelt, and correspondence in F.65 refers to arrangements for Cherwell to show an album of charts to the King.
