A chronological sequence of papers relating to Hodgkin's public and academic lectures, and other speeches and addresses delivered at various occasions.

Letters relating to the sale of Greystone

27 letters between Broad and John Baldwin, the purchaser of his house Greystone, in Langford, near Bristol, and his estate agent Donald Hughes of W. Hughes & Son, Ltd in Bristol and Broad & Lewis, his solicitors in Bristol. The letters from Broad are represented by carbon copies.

Reprints and journal references

This series contains a range of material related to reprints of Sir Anthony's journal publications. In the sciences, reprints (or offprints) are often kept by authors for distribution to collaborators and peers. Sir Anthony kept a numbered file of reprints, in order of publication. These collected reprints are contained in this series, as well as reprint request slips, and a list of reprint recipients. Sub-series F/5 is an index of papers referenced by Sir Anthony in his publications.

Publications and papers presented

This series contains materials related to publications and presentations developed from Sir Anthony's research. These include theses and publications by Sir Anthony and researchers in his laboratories, review papers, book contributions, and illustrations for publications and presentations.

Working papers and correspondence

This series contains papers, correspondence, and notes from Sir Anthony's lectures, meetings, conferences, and travels, as well as a range of files relating to Sir Anthony's professional life. It provides a broad as well as in-depth picture of Sir Anthony's working life. Main aspects dealt with include: historical significance of the Epstein-Barr virus, advisory and consultation work, the wide spectrum of research work, general correspondence, personal matters, publications and broadcasting, and professional and academic societies and organizations. More detailed summaries about the papers are available in each sub-series description. Types of papers include correspondence, reports, and discussion, working, and meeting papers.

Laboratory research notebooks and photographic material

This series contains Sir Anthony and his collaborators' laboratory notebooks, along with images of experiments. The notebooks detail a number of techniques for growing malignant cells, isolating the Epstein-Barr virus, and imaging experimental samples.

Sub-series C/2 contains three notebooks belonging to Dr Bert G. Achong. Achong co-discovered the Epstein-Barr virus alongside Sir Anthony and Dr Yvonne Balding (née Barr) using electron microscopy imaging techniques. Sub-series C/7 contains photographs and negatives of experiments. Sub-series D/6–8, D/18, D/20, and D/22 contain correspondence relevant to research work.

Professional diaries, address book, and shorthand notebooks

This series contains Sir Anthony's professional appointment diaries at the Bland-Sutton Institute at the Middlesex Hospital, the Department of Pathology at the University of Bristol, the Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine at the University of Oxford, and Wolfson College, Oxford. Sub-series B/5 is a collection of shorthand notebooks from 1981–1988.

Personal material

This series contains personal materials belonging to Sir Anthony. These items include personal photographs, gifts and mementos, newspaper cuttings, taped lectures and interviews, professional and academic certificates, and other items commemorating the honours Sir Anthony received throughout his career.

Lectures and publications

Much of Broad's later publications stemmed from lectures, Broad himself ascribed his lecture style to the fact that he spoke verbatim from texts, claiming that this made it easier to produce publications from them. While university lectures given by Broad are quite easily discernible, and are catalogued at the head of this series, they do form the basis of much of his published material. Later items in the series are individual lectures and publications


Items C1/15-37 were kept in a file marked "Mathematics, Physics and Philosophy" with the word 'Mathematics' struck through Notwithstanding the deletion, it does contain some mathematical material. The use of St Andrews examination stationery suggests that at least some of this material dates from Broad's period at that University or shortly afterward.

Items C1/54- 62 were kept together by CDB under the title "Notes on Kant"

Electron diffraction

C3-8 consist of the contents of a folder labelled 'Potential Drop in Dark Space. October 1923-January 1924'. For ease of reference, the material has been subdivided and put into separate folders. Thomson's original ordering of the papers has been retained.
C 10-22 consist of the contents of folder labelled 'Calculations for Scattering of positive rays in hydrogen, argon and helium'. The order of the papers remains unchanged but the original folder has been discarded.

Scientific correspondence

This class includes two series of Batchelor’s correspondence files and also loose scientific correspondence that was not filed. The alphabetically-arranged files of correspondence (F1 and F2) begin with letters from the 1940s. Probably at the beginning of 1980, with the size of the files increasing, a second series was begun. The files in the first series thus practically finish in 1979, however occasionally letters of a later date were inserted, hence the covering dates of some files in this continue beyond 1979. A third series (F3) has been created for the correspondence that was not filed. A correspondent’s appearance in this third series does not indicate that they do not appear in series F1 and/or F2.

Trinity College

This class contains a few items relating to Batchelor’s relationship with Trinity College. He was admitted as a Research Student in 1945, elected a Fellow under Title A [Junior Research Fellow] in 1947 and under Title B [Senior Research Fellow] in 1951. Correspondence concerning his admission can be found at BACH/B7

Reports, articles, addresses, and papers

These consist of reports for government and advisory committees, drafts and typescripts for talks, addresses and papers, etc., presented chronologically. Some are photocopies obtained by G.K. Batchelor, and all are typescript unless otherwise indicated. When the item is accompanied by correspondence, this is noted in the entry and indexed.

The majority of these papers deal only with scientific research and problems, but a few of the later addresses include reminiscences and biographical material of historical interest.

Material published in The Scientific Papers of Sir Geoffrey Taylor, ed. G.K. Batchelor, IV Vol., C.U.P., is indicated in the form (SP....). With these exceptions, and any others noted in the entries, the items in this Section are unpublished.

A photocopy of the list of publications is reproduced by permission from Batchelor, Memoir, on pp.74 - 83.
