Abstract:

The Bryce S. DeWitt papers (1950-2003) consist of general research files containing handwritten notes, correspondence and printed material; as well as extensive documentation of the 1973 eclipse experiment (as described below), including 85 glass photographic plates taken during the period of the experiment and computer print-outs analyzing the data.

The glass plates are organized by size and generally include the inventory number assigned to them at the time of the experiment. The "suitcase plates" are the most valuable of the glass plates and were carefully escorted from the experiment site by Cecil DeWitt-Morette in a foam-padded, metal suitcase for analysis. Note that the complete log of the glass plates is available in the "Eclipse reduction notes" folder. If the dates following the plate number are in brackets, they were taken from the box in which the plate was stored or written on the plate itself, unbracketed dates are from the written log. Due to the fragile nature of the glass plates, they are available by appointment only. Please contact the archivist to set up a research time
