Dawn of the electronic age : electrical technologies in the shaping of the modern world, 1914 to 1945 by Frederik Nebeker( Book )

14 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Much of the infrastructure of today's industrialized world arose in the period from the outbreak of World War I to the conclusion of World War II. It was during these years that the capabilities of traditional electrical engineering--generators, power transmission, motors, electric lighting and heating, home appliances, and so on--became ubiquitous. Even more importantly, it was during this time that a new type of electrical engineering--electronics--emerged. Because of its applications in communications (both wire-based and wireless), entertainment (notably radio, the phonograph, and sound movies), industry, science and medicine, and the military, the electronics industry became a major part of the economy. Dawn of the Electronic Age explores how this engineering knowledge and its main applications developed in various scientific, economic, and social contexts, and explains how each was profoundly affected by electrical technologies. It takes an international perspective and a narrative approach, unfolding the story chronologically."--Page 4 of cover

Study of Multi-Institutional Collaborations Phase I project files: high energy physics by Center for History of Physics (American Institute of Physics)( )

in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These administrative records contain files on the National Science Foundation Planning Grant, proposals, progress reports to agencies, working group meetings, correspondence, experiment selection, question sets, probes, interview program, field trips, census, sociological analysis, historical analysis, archival analysis, final reports, papers on projects. They cover the first phase of the study which addressed the field of high energy physics, focusing on experiments approved between 1973 and 1984 at five of the world's major accelerator laboratories: the Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), the Cornell Electron Storage Ring (CESR) facility at Cornell University's Newman Laboratory, the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN), the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (FNAL), and the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC). Project members obtained a broad-scale picture of changes in the structure of collaborations by using databases on high-energy experiments and publications at SLAC, with the assistance of SLAC staff. The staff conducted nearly 200 oral history interviews with scientists and administrators involved in 24 selected experimental collaborations, using a structured question set covering all stages of the collaborative process. Still more detailed "probes" of three highly significant collaborations featured historical research as well as many additional interviews. Specifically, Peter Galison studied the discovery of the psi particle at SLAC; Frederik Nebeker studied the discovery of the upsilon particle at FNAL, and Joel Genuth studied the CLEO collaborations at Cornell. Meanwhile, project staff surveyed the records-keeping practices of key physicists and made numerous site visits to accelerator facilities and university archives to discuss archival issues and records policies. In addition to the above historians, project staff included: Joan Warnow-Blewett, project director; Spencer Weart, associate project director; Janet Linde and Lyn Mahoney, project archivists
