Abstract:

The collection, which consists almost entirely of correspondence written and received, covers all aspects of Peierls's career to 1974, including scientific research, service on committees, advisory boards, etc., publications, appointment, overseas visits and the like. Peierls has attracted the attention of historians, and has given reminiscences and accounts of episodes in his life on tape, radio, television, in print and by correspondence. Several are in the collection; information on the location of others is provided. Peierls's retirement from the Wykeham Chair was marked by a Symposium held in Oxford in July 1974. Correspondence with participants, and tapes of the talks and discussion are contained in the collection, by courtesy of the organisers I. J. R. Aitchison and J. E. Paton, and include many personal and scientific recollections of Peierls and his career. There is extensive correspondence with Hans Bethe, Niels Bohr, Nevill Mott, and Wolfgang Pauli and shorter exchanges with Max Born, Ralph Howard Fowler, Werner Heisenberg, Lev Landau, George Placzek, J. Robert Oppenheimer and others.
