Additional material assembled during the preparation of the Royal Society memoir of Adams was received from Professor I M James FRS in December 1990. OUTLINE OF THE CAREER OF J F ADAMS Following his graduation he began research at Cambridge, John Frank Adams was born in Woolwich on 5 November 1930. Trinity College Cambridge in 1949 where he studied mathematics. He was educated at Bedford School and won an Open Scholarship to of Chicago and at Princeton as a Commonwealth Fellow. Lecturership in 1955 and was a Research Fellow at Trinity College initially under A S Besicovitch then under S Wylie, and received Cambridge 1955-58. He spent 1957-58 studying at the University his PhD -ins1.955. Adams was appointed to a Junior University J F Adams NCUACS 26/2/91 On his return to Cambridge Adams was appointed Fellow, College Lecturer and Director of Studies in Mathematics at Trinity Hall, posts held until 1962 when he took up a Readership at Manchester University. In 1964 Adams succeeded M H A Newman as Fielden Professor of Pure Mathematics there. In 1970 Adams returned to Trinity College Cambridge as a Fellow when he was appointed to the Lowndean Chair of Astronomy and Geometry in succession to Sir William Hodge, a position he held until his death in January 1989. Adams's most important area of research was in homotopy theory. He developed the algebraic system known as the Adams Spectral Sequence and did pioneering work on Cohomology operations in K-theory. In 1965 he introduced the Adams conjecture (now the Adams theorem) into the study of K-theory. His outstanding achievements in mathematics were recognised (while in 1986 he was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of still only 34) and the award of the Society's Sylvester Medal in 1982. by his election to the Fellowship of the Royal Society in 1964 of Sciences and an Honorary Member of the Royal Danish Academy; Adams was also elected a Foreign Associate of the US National Academy 1990). memoir by I M James (Biographical Memoirs of Fellows of the Royal Heidelberg. Society, 36, For a full account of the life and career of Adams see the J F Adams NCUACS 26/2/91 DESCRIPTION OF THE COLLECTION The material is presented in the order given in the List of Contents. The collection is particularly noteworthy for its coverage of Adams's lectures, research and incoming correspondence. Section A, Biographical, is not substantial. It includes a little material of Adams's relating to his own career including three Bedford School notebooks and his PhD thesis, and material assembled by I M James during the preparation of his Royal Society memoir. Section B, Research, provides extensive documentation of Adams's research from the 1950s until his death. It is presented in an alphabetical sequence arranged by subject title. Section C, Lectures, is the largest in the collection. Two including drafts of Adams's contributions and notes of contributions conferences and seminars attended by Adams throughout the world for courses given at Manchester and Cambridge, and material from subsections comprise Adams's lecture notes and other teaching material notes taken by Adams as an undergraduate at Cambridge in 1949. filing cabinet drawers labelled ‘Other people's lectures'. It includes by others. A third subsection consists of Adams's ms notes found in F Adams J NCUACS 26/2/91 7 Section D, Publications, is very slight. It includes drafts of a few of Adams's scientific papers. Section E, Correspondence, contains virtually no extended exchanges of correspondence as very few copies of Adams's own’ letters survive. There is, however, significant correspondence from colleagues such as M F (later Sir Michael) Atiyah, M G Barratt, P J Hilton, M James and S MacLane, sometimes extending over a period of twenty or I thirty years. There is also an index of correspondents. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS We are very grateful to Dr C B Thomas and Professor I M James for making the material available, and to Professor J H Davenport, University of Bath, for comments on the draft catalogue.
