Abstract:

Reminiscences of studies at University of Cambridge and of the 1851 Exhibition Science Scholarship from 1927. Recollections of Ernest Rutherford, work with him on measurement of the energies of the product particles after Cockcroft-Walton, and on transformation effects on deuterium brought by Gilbert N. Lewis from University of California at Berkeley. Working conditions at Cavendish Laboratory; criticism of Rutherford by Advisory Council of the DSIR (Department of Scientific and Industrial research); change in focus at Cavendish after Rutherford's death. Trip to Berkeley in 1938 to study design of 60-inch cyclotron as model for Birmingham cyclotron. Also prominently mentioned are: Francis William Aston, James Chadwick, John Cockcroft, Kerr Grant; Nuffield (Automobile manufacturer), University of Adelaide, University of Birmingham, and University of California at Berkeley.
