Abstract:

Consists of extensive correspondence, writings and talks, and miscellaneous personal papers documenting Taylor's career as a physicist. Well documented is Taylor's teaching career in the Oberlin College Department of Physics. Correspondence includes files of recommendation letters and correspondence with other physicists and scientific companies. His personal correspondence highlights his numerous private interests, including his views on temperance, religion and politics. His interest in inventor Elisha Gray (1835-1901) is evident in the unpublished manuscript, "The Untold Story of the Telephone." Notable correspondents include: Robert Andrews Millikan (1868-1953); Arthur F. Compton (1892-1962); Carl Ellis Howe (1898-1968); and Charles Nelson Cole (1871-1945). Letters inquiring about Elisha Gray and correspondence with campus figures and committees complete the correspondence.
