He was educated at the Merchant Venturers' School and the University of Bristol where he read physics, graduating in 1916. He spent the next four years as a radiographer with the British army in India, returning to Bristol in 1920 to pursue research. He remained at Bristol until 1922, and it was during this period that he was introduced by A.P. Chattock to the study of magnetism which became his main research interest for the rest of his life. After what Bates described as a two years 'interlude', working under Rutherford at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge, where he completed a Ph.D. thesis on the study of long range alpha particles, Bates was appointed to a lecture- ship at University College, London, in 1924. In 1930 he was promoted to Reader in Physics and in 1936 he became Lancashire-Spencer Professor of Physics at the University College (later University) of Nottingham. There is very little material in the collection from Bates's pre-Nottingham career; see B.1 - B.3 for notebooks from the period at Bristol, and B.4 - B.13 for lectures delivered to undergraduates at London. However, Bates continued to retain strong links with London University, and these are well documentedin the collection. In particular he acted as Visiting Examiner, 1961-77 (see F.1 - F.26), and was also invited to deliver several series of lectures on magnetism (see B.14 - B.16). Bates remained at Nottingham University until his retirement in 1964. He established a thriving research group based on his own interest in magnetism and was most actively involved in administration and general conduct ofaffairs, not only in his own department but in the University as a whole. He was a member of the Association of University Teachers (President, 1938-39) and Deputy Vice- Chancellor of the University, 1953-55 (see C.11). He was also responsible for the C.23) which he was able building of a large new Physics Department (see C.14 - to direct for a short time before his retirement in 1964. relating to Nottingham University is to be found in Section C, but there are other Most of the material L.F. Bates CSAC 83/1/82 papers scattered throughoutthe collection - see the list of references in the intro- duction to Section C. Many of the correspondents in Section G are former students or colleagues of Bates at Nottingham. Of Bates's actual scientific work very little remains, apart from the early notebooks at C.1 -C.3. There are no other notebooks or laboratory records, only drafts for lectures and publications. This may be explained by the fact that much of the collection, with the exception of a few items of personal or biographical interest, dates from the period after Bates's retirement. Thus there is a wealth of papers covering his examining activities and some of the committees on which he served, in particular the Royal Society Symbols Committee of which he was Chairman, 1968-77 (D.86 - D.106), the British Standards Institution Units and Symbols Standards Committee (D.11 -D.34), the University Grants Committee, for which Bates was an Assessor, 1965-68 (D.107 - D.118), and the University of London Academic Advisory Committee to investigate the future role of Birkbeck College (D.59 - D.73). Bates attached great importance to public work, and the Section covering 7 his membership of committees and societies is a large one, even though notall his activities are as well documented as those mentioned above. In particular, his work as Senior Scientific Adviser for Civil Defence, North Midland Region (1951-72, see D.39 - D.44) led to the award of the C.B.E. in 1966. Another activity more directly connected with Bates's own research interests was his membership of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) Commission on Magnetism, of which he was Secretary, 1957-66 (see D.52 - D.57). He was thus actively involved in several international conferences held under the auspices of IUPAP, many of which are documented in Section E. Oneof these, held at Nottingham in September 1964, was of special concern to Bates. As Chairman of the Organising Committee he was actively involved in the administra- tive detail of the conference; he delivered the 47th Guthrie Lecture on this occasion, and also 'celebrated' his retirement. See E.10 - E.34 for a full record of the conference. Section A contains a number of items of biographical interest, especially speeches and letters of congratulation, most of which were assembled and kept together by Bates as likely to be of interest to a memoralist or biographer. He also L.F. Bates CSAC 83/1/82 annotated some of his correspondence in the course of sorting it after his retirement in 1964, and his remarks have been quoted in the catalogue entries where appropriate. When Bateslost the regular service of a secretary on his retirement he would jot down the substance of his replies on his incoming letters, thus preserving the tenorof his correspondencedespite the absence of carbon copies. His meticulous attention to detail and his conscientious handling of any matter that was brought to his attention are evident throughout the collection. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS To Dr. E.S. Lautch, Bates's daughter, for making the material available for cataloguing, and for donating the collection to the Manuscripts Department of the University of Nottingham. To Professor N.

These form the first 3 items in the Section. The lectures include courses delivered to undergraduates at London University where Bates was Lecturer (1924-30) and Reader (1930-36). His association with London University continued after the move to Nottingham in 1936 and he continued to give occasional courses of lectures there as well as acting as an External Examiner until 1977. (See Section F.) Notes for all the surviving London University lectures are to be found at B.4 - B.16. The remainder of the lectures (B.17 - B.32) were delivered at various universities and institutions in U.K. and abroad. They are presented in chrono- logical order as far as possible, though not all of them are dated and some were delivered on more than one occasion. Items B.33 - B.47 mainly consist of ms. drafts and related correspondence for various publications, including some unpublished material. There is an (incomplete) set of Bates's published papers at B. 48. Lectures delivered at Nottingham University are to be found at C.1 - C.9.

CSAC 83/1/82 19 SECTION C UNIVERSITY OF NOTTINGHAM C.1 - C.27 Bates was appointed Lancashire-Spencer Professor of Physics in 1936, and he remained at Nottingham until his retirement in 1964. During that period he built up a thriving research group which won an intemational reputation in the field of magnetism, and towards the end of his tenure of the chair he was res- ponsible for the building of a large new Physics Department which he directed for about eighteen months. The collection contains few records of Bates's early years at Nottingham apart from mss. of various lectures (see C.1 - C.9). There is, however, a useful amount of documentation for the planning and execution of the new Physics Building including detailed costings, schedules of equipment, and corres- pondence(see C.14 - C.23). For papers relating to the International Conference on Magnetism held at Nottingham in 1964 see E.10 - E.24; for letters of congratulation on Bates's appoint- ment as Lancashire-Spencer Professor see A.3 - A.6.

The remainder contains correspondence re examining in other universities, including some over- seas, for both undergraduate and higher degrees, and advice on appointments, particularly in overseas universities. Fal SPyeZ University of London, 1961-77 Bates served as Visiting Examiner to the Board of Studies in Physics. He advised on syllabus content, commented on draft examination papers, vetted written scripts and conducted oral examinations for the Colleges of the University and for external candidates. Degrees, Ancillary Physics, Course-Unit Physics, etc. - underwent major re-organisation in 1967, entailing alter- native sets of papers and tests for several years. Some of Bates's examining was arranged directly with Colleges, some via a central board. The examinations - for Honours Bates made very careful notes on the scripts he saw and on the candidates he was to examine, and compiled lists of questions and problems to be used at orals. Samples of these have been retained in F.26, F.27. Reports by Bates and H.T. Flint on syllabus and examinations in physics, 1961-64. Correspondence with Flint and with members of London University, 1963-64. Lists of candidates and detailed comments by Bates on questions and answers at oral examinations, 1963, 1964.
