Rutherford Appleton Laboratory report: RAL-94-10, includes postscript (1 p.) and letter (1 p.) A paper presented at the Birmingham Synchrotron 40th Anniversary Reunion in 1993. It is primarily Lawson's recollections of the program of synchrotron development initiated in 1945 under the newly formed Atomic Energy Research Establishment at Harwell. The work was carried out at Malvern, in premises used during the war for radar research. Two 30 MeV machines were designed there for use in physics research. The most notable achievement was the conversion of a small American betatron by Goward and Barnes to become the world's first synchrotron in 1946
