Abstract:

The document describes Shenstone's family life and influence; his early education in Canada; his admission to Princeton University in 1910 and his work there in physics and mathematics under Oswald Veblen, Henry B. Fine, Edwin P. Adams, and Joseph H.M. Wedderburn; his admission to Cambridge University in 1914 and work in the Cavendish Laboratory under John Joseph Thomson and Charles T.R. Wilson which was cut short by his commission as a Second Lieutenant in the Royal Engineers in 1915. Shenstone discusses his war experiences and describes his duties as an engineer; his return to Princeton on fellowship after the war and his work under Edwin P. Adams; his fellowship work in nuclear physics at the Davendish Laboratory under Ernest Rutherford, James Chadwick, Patrick M.S. Blackett, Edmund C. Stoner, and Edward V. Appleton (1920-1921); his appointment to the physics faculty of Princeton in 1925 with Henry D. Smyth, and Louis A Turner. Shenstone also discusses in some detail his work in atomatic spectra during the late 1920s and 1930s with Henry Norris Russell and Harold Urey; teaching loads, the outfitting of the Princeton laboratory, including the building of the cyclotron; his experiences in London as head of the Canadian National Research Council liaison office during the Second World War; and the rebuilding of the Physics faculty at Princeton after the war with Henry D. Smyth, Robert Ladenburg, Milton G. White, Walker.
