A film on crystal structure made by the Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) Film Unit in collaboration with Powell is documented by scripts, drafts, and correspondence. Visits and conference mateial covers the period 1948-1974. Particularly well documented is his 1962 visit to China as a member of a Royal Society delegation to the Academia Sinica, Peking. There are also papers relating to visits to Roumania in 1964 and Russia in 1966 and 1969. Powell's linguistic interests are documented by notes and drafts on his work on language representation. There are also drafts for a course on learning Russian prepared with the scientific student in mind. Scientific correspondence is not extensive. There is, however, an alphabetical sequence of principal correspondents including scientific colleaugues such as W. Baker, F. G. Mann and R. S. Nyholm and industrial concerns interested in the applications of Powell's work such as the British Oxygen Company, Imperial Chemical Industries, and Johnson, Matthey and Company.
