Autobiography, chapter V:Leiden science, 1973.

Photocopy of one chapter from an unpublished autobiography, the previous chapters of which, Struik explains in a handwritten note, covered his parents' biographies and his early years at school. This account begins with Struik entering the Rijksuniversiteit te Leiden and recounts both the atmosphere of the university and the actual research and lectures given by J. C. Klyver, P. Zeeman (cousin of Pieter Zeeman), J. P. Kuenen, Paul Ehrenfest--about whom Struik makes some interesting observations--Hendrik A. Lorentz, Adriaan Fokker, and G. J. P. J. Bolland; and discusses fellow students Hans Kramers, Dirk Coster, Jan Burgers, Marcel Minnaert, and Johanna Van Leeuwen.
