OUTLINE OF THE CAREER OF M DIXON Malcolm Dixon was born in Cambridge in 1899. He was educated at the Perse School, Cambridge and privately, and went up University Demonstrator in 1923 and Lecturer in 1928. During the Second World War Dixon directed a research group studying the chemical reactions of poison gases. At the end of the war his standing in enzymology was recognised by the to Emmanuel College, Cambridge in 1917 to read for the Natural Sciences Tripos, Part II of which he took in 1921. He then came Biochemistry Department with Dixon as Director; he was also which he devoted most of his research career. He was appointed under the influence of Sir Frederick Gowland Hopkins and began research on the biochemistry of enzymes at Cambridge, a topic to creation of a Subdepartment of Enzyme Biochemistry in the Cambridge 1942. promoted to Reader in Enzyme Biochemistry by the University. had already been elected to the Fellowship of the Royal Society in He M Dixon NCUACS 23/8/90 In 1956 Dixon was appointed Chairman of the International Union of Biochemistry (IUB) Commission on Enzymes, which considered questions of nomenclature. It reported successfully in 1961. In 1958 he published (in collaboration with E C Webb) the comprehensive treatise Enzymes. Second and third editions of this internationally authoritative work followed in 1964 and 1979. Dixon was appointed Professor of Enzyme Biochemistry on 1 January 1966 and retired nine months later. He died on 7 December 1985 aged 86. For a full account of the life and career of Dixon see R N Perham's Royal Society memoir (Biographical Memoirs of Fellows of the Royal Society, 34, 1988). DESCRIPTION OF THE COLLECTION of Contents. The collection is particularly strong in documentation and the various editions of Enzymes. The material is presented in the order given in the List of Dixon's scientific research, his enzyme nomenclature work for IUB Dixon's autobiographical notes and bibliography. Section A, Biographical, is very slight but includes M Dixon NCUACS 23/8/90 Section B, Research, is one of the most important in the collection. There is a sequence of notebooks covering a period of over fifty years from 1917. Of particular interest, for example, are the books used for notes of the lectures of J Barcroft, T S Hele, F G Hopkins and R A Peters and for wartime research by Dixon and his collaborators R van Heyningen, J A Cohen and D M M Needham. The wartime research is also represented by an extensive correspondence, . committee papers and the research reports of Dixon's group. Section C, Cambridge, provides interesting documentation of the Biochemistry Department. There is material relating to the Subdepartment of Enzyme Biochemistry, staff meetings and committees, teaching and requests to visit and work with Dixon. to Australia, and scientific colleagues generally. Section E, Societies and Organisations, is dominated by Section D, Lectures and Publications, brings together Cambridge biochemistry lecture notes, informal research talks, Enzymes. The Enzymes material is principally correspondence with the publisher (Longmans) for the three editions, E C Webb for a invitation and public lectures and extensive documentation for period of nearly 20 years from 1962 when he moved from Cambridge IUB enzyme nomenclature papers sent to Dixon for information. papers relating to the IUB Commission on Enzymes which include documents circulated to Commission members. There are also later correspondence, minutes of meetings and the series of numbered M Dixon NCUACS 23/8/90 Section F, Correspondence, does not include extensive exchanges with individuals and has accordingly been arranged in a chronological sequence 1946-78. There is also a references and recommendations subsection which is subject to restricted assess. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Library, for advice and encouragement.

M Dixon NCUACS 23/8/90 Research CHEMICAL DEFENCE RESEARCH During the Second World War Dixon's research was largely concerned with the biochemistry of chemical warfare agents. He directed an ‘extramural research team' under the Chemical Defence Research section of the Ministry of Supply which studied lachrymators, dialkyl fluorophosphonates, Lewisite and mustard gas and related compounds. His team included at various times: D M M Needham, K Bailey, R Hill, J F Danielli, P D Mitchell, E C Webb, G D Greville, J A Cohen, R van Heyningen, C Lutwak-Mann and J F Mackworth. The results of the research were presented to the Ministry in 33 reports, an aimost complete sequence of which is presented below. Much of the of enzymes.

M Dixon NCUACS 23/8/90 Societies and organisations INTERNATIONAL UNION OF BIOCHEMISTRY (IUB) 1956-78 In 1956 the IUB appointed a Commission on Enzymes whose terms of reference were 'To consider the classification and nomenclature of enzymes and coenzymes, their units of activity and standard methods of assay, together with the symbols used in the description of enzyme kinetics'. Its members were A E Braunstein (USSR), S P Colowick (USA), P A E Desnuelle (France), M Dixon (UK), O Hoffmann-Ostenhof (Austria), A L Lehninger (USA), K Linderstrgm- Lang (Denmark), F Lynen (Germany); corresponding members: Commission. ‘It was becoming clear that the nomenclature of F Egami (Japan) and L F Leloir (Argentina). In 1959, on the death of Linderstrgm-Lang, E C Webb (UK) joined the Commission. Dixon (A.2- A.3 ) he explained the background to the appointment of the In the autobiographical notes that Dixon composed 1967-68 was invited to be its Chairman and Hoffmann-Ostenhof was Secretary. enzymology was rapidly getting out of hand, owing to the great increase in the number of known enzymes, the lack of any general system for naming them, and the custom that each discoverer of an reactions catalysed by them, had just been prepared by Dixon and The task of bringing order out of this confused situation was in Dixon's words ‘an unenviable and huge one'. Fortunately a list enzyme had the right of naming it as he chose’. of known enzymes, arranged systematically in the order of the M Dixon NCUACS 23/8/90 Societies and organisations E C Webb for the book Enzymes. which was due to be published two years later (see Section D). The availability of this list greatly lightened the Commission's work. Nevertheless 32 sessions of the main Commission and 30 sessions of Subcommissions were needed over a period of five years. The Commission's unanimous recommendations were printed in book form and presented by Dixon to the Council of the IUB in Moscow in 1961 where they were officially adopted. Although Dixon was relieved to be able to turn to other things on the dissolution of the Commission he believed its work to have been of great value in creating order out of the threatened chaos in the subject. A small Standing Committee on Enzymes under also adopted by the IUB Commission of Editors of Biochemical Journals. Since then a series of revised enzyme lists have been produced as considered necessary by IUB or the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry. the IUB Commission on Enzymes is presented as follows: The very considerable body of material relating to the work of E C Webb was appointed to consider criticisms and to keep the list up to date and this produced a revised version in 1964 which was Nomenclature Circulated Standing Committee on Enzymes documents C.B.1 - C.E.36 Miscellaneous documents re the Enzyme Commission Circulated Enzyme Commission documents EC-1 — EC. 52 Enzyme Commission correspondence Enzyme Commission minutes Miscellaneous documents re Enzyme M Dixon NCUACS 23/8/90 Societies and organisations Enzyme Commission correspondence O Hoffman-Ostenhof 1956-61 1956-57 1960-61 RH S Thompson 1956-62 1956 4958259 1960-62 S P Colowick Nomenclature Commission of IUPAC.
