John Archibald Wheeler Papers, 1880-2008 1880-2008

There are correspondence, notebooks, reports, recordings, etc. of this award-winning physicist and pioneer theorist on the existence of black holes. A student of Karl Herzfeld at Johns Hopkins University, John Archibald Wheeler studied nuclear fission with Neils Bohr. The numerous volumes of research notebooks in the collection, Wheeler's daily record of calculations, meetings attended and conversations held about his work, are of primary significance. Among other subjects, they cover physics, nucleonics, quantum electrodynamics, and relativity. The correspondence in the collection contains many personal evaluations of scientists (subject to restrictions on use), as well as Wheeler's contributions to promoting physics and scientific education and training in general. There are important series relating to his participation in the 1950s on the Committee on Scientific and Technical Personnel of NATO, headed by Senator Henry M. Jackson, and his organizational work on the Joint Committee of the American Physical Society and the American Philosophical Society on the History of Theoretical Physics in the Twentieth Century.

Feynman, Richard P. (Richard Phillips), 1918-1988 (person)

Physicist Richard Feynman won his scientific renown through the development of quantum electrodynamics, or QED, a theory describing the interaction of particles and atoms in radiation fields. As a part of this work he invented what came to be known as "Feynman Diagrams," visual representations of space-time particle interactions. For this work he was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics, together with J. Schwinger and S. I. Tomonaga, in 1965. Later in his life Feynman became a prominent public fig...

American Philosophical Society (corporateBody)

Benjamin Franklin founded the American Philosophical Society in 1743 in Philadelphia, patterning it after the Royal Society of London. It's purpose was the promotion of the study of science and the practical arts of agriculture, engineering trades, and manufactures. Subjects of today's "philosophy" were generally excluded from the societies of the 17th and 18th centuries and the word "philosophy" meant to them "love of knowledge," and was essentially the equivalent of today's "science."

The Department of General Studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) did not officially exist until 1882. Courses in general studies were offered as early as 1865, when the MIT Catalog offered a curriculum option called the Course in Science and Literature. At that time, all regular MIT students were required to take “general studies” classes from the Course in Science and Literature, in addition to English, history, and modern languages. In 1882 the Course in Scienc...
