Abstract:

The collection chiefly consists of the administrative, scientific, and personal correspondence of Walter S. Adams spanning the years 1921 to 1956, including his work during World War II. Adams and the observatory staff worked, in secret, with the U.S. government and helped create prisms and optics for various types of binoculars and gun sights; the staff also assisted with aerial and naval defense and attack strategy. There is also material from Adams' retirement years. The collection also contains manuscripts and photographs (some of which are of the B-29 bomber), also dealing with Adams' astronomical work.

The four boxes that make up the "supplement" are made up of correspondence (arranged alphabetically by author) and manuscripts (arranged by topic). The sub-series includes the same authors that can be found in the larger Adams Collection boxes. The manuscripts (which include reports, speeches, articles, press releases, etc.) are written by several different people including Walter Adams, George Ellery Hale, Albert Michelson, F. E. Wright and many others. The majority of the manuscripts are related to astronomy and Mt. Wilson. There is one manuscript about Albert Einstein's visit to Mt. Wilson. There is also one folder of photographs and one folder of ephemera.
