Personal correspondence remains in the possession of Lady Bawden. Some of Bawden's correspondence and papers dealing with Rothamsted Experimental Station are held there. Bawden's close collaboration with scientific colleagues and members of the staff of Rothamsted is shown in the laboratory notebooks (Section B) and in all sections of the corres= pondence. In particular, his collaborative work with N.W. Pirie and A.A.P. Kleczkowski is kept as a single section (B.1-38, see notes on pps. 3 to 6). Dr. Kleczkowski's note- book (B.38) was received from Miss Helen Kleczkowski (daughter), who retains some personal papers of her father. The help of Lady Bawden and Miss Mildred Ashford (Bawden's secretary) is gratefully acknowledged. The papers are not yet necessarily all available for consultation.
