Joseph B. Koepfli (1904-2004) was a research associate in chemistry at Caltech from 1932 to 1971. His field of study was organic chemistry, principally alkaloids and other physiologically active substances such as adrenalin and insulin. He was trained in pharmacology and during World War II worked on developing antimalarial drugs. Koepfli's papers document a portion of his chemical research as well as his role as a science adviser to the U.S. State Department.
Aron Kuppermann (1926-2011) was a leader in the field of computational chemistry and was best known for his theoretical studies of the dynamics of chemical reactions. During his many years at Caltech (1963-2011), Kuppermann also worked as a consultant for the World Bank on projects of Science and Technology in Brazil, China, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, and Uganda from 1983 to 2005. His papers reflect his avid interest in both scientific research and teaching.
The Robert Vose Langmuir papers document only a small portion of Langmuir's work. Notably absent is material on the Caltech synchrotron. Files include technical reports from the General Electric period, with an acccount of the discovery of synchrotron radiation by Pollock; patent documents beginning in 1945; course notes and problem sets from Caltech; and a selection of research and writing projects from the 1940s through 1990.
The Charles C. Lauritsen papers consist of correspondence, patent material, research notes and data, photographs, reprints, and materials relating to work for Caltech, government agancies, and private organizations. The complete finding aid is available at the Online Archive of California, and the link can be accessed in the External Documents section of this record.
Frank Earl Marble (1918-2014) earned his PhD from Caltech in 1948, and remained as GALCIT faculty and active in his research at Caltech for over fifty years. The Frank E. Marble papers illustrate Marble's contributions to the field of aeronautics and mechanical engineering, and consist of correspondence, research notes, notebooks, and writings.
The Rudolph A Marcus papers consist of working papers, correspondence, publications, and biographical material. Marcus is best known for his contributions to the theory of electron transfer reactions in chemical systems, for which he won the 1992 Nobel Prize in chemistry.
The papers include correspondence, clippings, photographs, and personal papers.
The papers include personal and professional correspondence, technical reports, scientific manuscripts, lecture notes, unpublished talks, government files & biographical data, and personal and family memorabilia.
Collection includes material relating to the future of JPL at the completion of Murray's term as Director. Also includes technical reports, talks, and other typed reports.
The papers of H. Victor Neher (1904-1999), Caltech professor of physics, 1931-1970. Neher was one of Caltech's early PhDs in physics. He belonged to Robert A. Millikan's cosmic-ray research group at Caltech for 20 years and served on the Caltech faculty for over 40. His papers include correspondence, especially with and by Millikan; cosmic-ray data, slides and photographs of apparatus, and expedition journals; reprints; and an autobiography titled "Memories."
The North papers consist of correspondence, research notes and notebooks, photographs, two films, and various publications, including the Kelp Habitat Improvement Project (KHIP) final reports. The collection documents North's work at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, his work as Professor of Environmental Science at Caltech, and his lab's research at the Kerckhoff Marine Laboratory in Corona del Mar.
Noyes' papers include correspondence from 1919-1936, technical and laboratory notes, unpublished talks, and reprints.
The working papers, correspondence, publications, and biographical material of Robert Warner Oliver form the collection known as the Papers of Robert W. Oliver in the Archives of the California Institute of Technology. Oliver was professor of economics at Caltech from 1959-1988.
A collection of films showing the construction and operation of the 200-inch Hale Telescope at Palomar Observatory, Palomar Mountain, California. This instrument was the world's largest effective telescope for 45 years (1948-1993). The collection includes footage of the transportation, grinding and polishing of the 200-inch mirror on the campus of the California Institute of Technology. A small portion of this material has been transferred to video tape and digitized from tape to DVD.
Paul was a historian of the American West. His special interest was in mining. The small collection of Rodman Paul papers was given to the Archives by the Division of Humanities and Social Sciences in 2001. It contains a sampling of his correspondence, publication projects and research notes, plus some biographical material, in particular, documents relating to his Harvard years.
The papers include administrative and organizational material related to JPL (especially JPL - NASA - CIT relationship) and JPL projects, Pickering’s work as a scientific advisor, his involvement in professional organizations (ie- NAE & IAF). SUPPLEMENT 2004: 6 boxes from the estate of William Pickering containing mixed files of talks, professional activities, biographical material, photos and awards (some oversize) are currently unprocessed.
Throughout the collection, and other collections in the Caltech Archives, Qian Xuesen is referred to as H.S. Tsien or Tsien. The Qian papers contain administrative files, correspondence, and research performed during Qian's time at Caltech.
The collection consists of lecture notes for airplane design courses at Caltech and a copy of his autobiography.
The course notes, syllabi, and reports of Caltech student Raymond G. Richards. Richards received his B.S. degree in mechanical engineering from Caltech in 1940.
