Scope and content

(This paper includes a description of Eddington’s visit to the Laboratory in Oct. 1934. W. E. Burcham described the circumstances of its composition as follows: ‘towards the end of 1934 Sir Arthur Eddington wrote a pamphlet describing the Cavendish and its achievements to form the basis of ‘an appeal to the friends of science and of Cambridge’. The pamphlet was published in Feb. 1935, and privately circulated to possible benefactors both within and outside Cambridge. See ‘The Cavendish High-voltage Laboratory 1935-39’, Notes and Records of the Royal Society of London, vol. liii, pp. 121-2. (The title appears under the heading ‘Miscellaneous’ in D2/3.))
