Abstract:

Collection contains letters sent to William J. Taylor and carbon copies of his replies, 1920-1923, documenting Marie Curie's visit to the College of Physicians of Philadelphia on 23 May 1921.

Most of the correspondence in the collection is between Taylor and Robert Abbe (1851-1928) who was largely responsible for arranging Curie's visit. The letters fully document the event, from the initial planning stages to the actual visit. Included in the correspondence are descriptions of Curie's itinerary and reports about the success of her visit. Abbe's letters also discuss the display case he purchased for the College. The "Abbe Cabinet" was designed to hold the items that Abbe had donated, including Benjamin Rush's watch and items belonging to Lister and Pasteur. The letters also document Abbe's attempt to obtain an electrometer used by Pierre and Marie Curie during their early experiments with radium; Abbe provides a sketch of the instrument in his letter of 25 April 1921. The electrometer was presented by Marie Curie during her visit to the College and was placed in the Abbe Cabinet.

Also present in Series 1 is correspondence between Taylor and officers of the Franklin Institute, concerning the invitation list for the special College meeting held in honor of Marie Curie. Series 1 also includes correspondence pertaining to the Marie Curie Radium Fund, a group organized to raise funds for the purchase of radium for Marie Curie, who was in need of radium to continue her research. Included are letters announcing upcoming meetings, and two letters from Marie M. Maloney, the chairwoman of the Marie Curie Radium Fund, who served as Curie's guide during her visit to Philadelphia. Included among the miscellaneous correspondence is a draft of Taylor's letter to Marie Curie, thanking her for donating the electrometer to the College; a letter from John S. Mucklé, a wealthy Philadelphian, offering the use of his guest rooms for Marie Curie during her visit; and a letter from Taylor to M. Carey Thomas, President of Bryn Mawr College, asking her to speak at the special College meeting held in honor of Curie. Series 2 contains clippings pertaining to Curie's visit to Philadelphia and the activities of the Marie Curie Radium Fund.
