Abstract

THIS material relating to the late Lord Rutherford was generously presented to the Cavendish Laboratory by Lady Rutherford in 1939, and is preserved in the Library. It has now been classified, and is of such great biographical and historical interest that we are giving a brief account of it here. It covers Rutherford's scientific career from his first research papers on “The Magnetisation of Iron by High-Frequency Discharges” (Trans. N.Z. Institute, 1894) to his last contribution in Nature of August, 1937 on “The Search for the Isotopes of Hydrogen and Helium of March 3”.
