OUTLINE OF THE CAREER OF ERNEST GORDON COX Ernest Gordon Cox was born on 24 April 1906 in Twerton, in Somerset, where his father was a market gardener. He was educated at the City of Bath Secondary School and the University of Bristol where he graduated with first class honours in physics in 1927. A.M. Tyndall, head of the Bristol Physics Department, recommended Cox to W.H. Bragg and he joined Bragg’s team in the Davy- Faraday Laboratory at the Royal Institution in London in 1927. Here Cox’s career as a practising crystallographer began. He was assigned the task of finding how the carbon atoms in benzene, known from chemical evidence to be in a ring, were disposed. After some difficulties in keeping the benzene (liquid at room temperatures) crystalline, Cox established that the carbon atoms were at the corners of a regular hexagon, a conclusion of considerable importancefor theoretical chemists. In 1929 Cox, although a physicist, was recruited by W.N. Haworth to the staff of the Chemistry Department at Birmingham University. Here he did pioneer work on the structures of sugars and coordination compounds of nickel, palladium, platinum and other metals. A highlight was the determination of the crystal structure of vitamin C, ascorbic acid, where his X-ray work was donein concert with the chemists. Cox became increasingly interested in the determination of accurate structures from three-dimensional data, for example pentaerythritol (1937) and Glucosamine hydrobromide (1939). In 1936 Cox was awarded his D.Sc. by the University of Bristol and in 1941 was promotedto Reader in Chemical Crystallography at Birmingham. Cox joined the Territorial Army in 1936 and was an officer in the Birmingham University OTC. Although mobilised in September 1939 he wasreturnedto his university post by November. Here he led an advisory group on explosives for the Ministry of Supply, Cox taking a particular interest in the hazards of static electrification. In February 1942 Cox wasrecruited by D.M. Newitt, Director of Scientific Research for the Inter-Services Research Bureau (ISRB), to be Senior Officer in charge of the laboratories of the ISBR research at The Frythe, Welwyn, Hertfordshire. ISRB was a cover for the Special Operations Executive (SOE), the secret service whose job it was to support and stimulate resistance in occupied countries. In July 1944 Cox went to France as a Technical Staff Officer (Lt- Col.) in the 21st Army Group HQ. He was employed in succession onliaison with the underground, on the investigation of V-2 rocket sites and on counter-sabotage activities. Cox was in Belgium by E.G. Cox NCUACS123/9/03 6 September, and had very close contacts with Belgian Resistance Group G through detailed interrogations about their highly successful sabotage work during the enemy occupation. In 1945 Cox was appointed as one of the Professors of Chemistry at the University of Leeds. There he built a happy Department of Inorganic and Structural Chemistry and a strong all-round group in chemical crystallography. He was keenly aware of the importance for crystallography of developments in apparatus and computing. In his first years at Leeds he took a particular interest in the design and production of a Weissenburg camera and in the use of Hollerith punched-card equipment. He wasquick to see the potential of electronic computers, sending one of his team to the first programming school at Cambridge in 1950 and from 1952 exploiting the Ferranti Mark | computer at Manchester. Successful new experimental work on benzene took place in a cold room in which crystal, apparatus and crystallographer could be contained. Cox’s team at Leeds produceda successionof high quality structure determinations, often setting the standards for others to follow. Many analyses concerned relatively simple molecules, such as heterocyclic sulphur compounds, with the aim of establishing reliable values of standard bonds. The work on stereochemistry of coordination compounds was extended, for example to include the new organic compoundsof platinum. Cox led the university bid for a Ferranti Pegasus computer. Installed in 1957 his crystallographers were its largest users. He contributed to the wider running of the university, and served on outside committees, for example International Union of Crystallography Commissions on Crystallographic Apparatus, 1948-1957 and Crystallographic Data, 1954-1960. Cox was chairman of the X-ray Analysis Group, 1956-1959. In 1957 Cox was appointed a member of the Agricultural Research Council (ARC) and after negotiations in the summer of 1959 appointed Secretary (Chief Executive) of the Council from 1 July 1960. At that time the ARC was responsible to the Lord President as Minister for Science and Technology, Lord Hailsham. It enjoyed scientific independence, drawing up its own research programmes, commissioning work and funding special projects while dealing with the Treasury over budgets. However, Cox became less content when, as a result of the Science and Technology Act (1965), the research councils, previously funded by the Treasury, were transferred to the Department of Education and Science. He became concerned bythreats to his independence from the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries which were given substance, for example, by the agreementof the Prime Minister in December 1969 to the setting up of a secret Whitehall committee chaired by Mr S.P. Osmond of the Treasury to consider the future of the ARC and whether it should be taken over by the MAFF. There was no quick decision by government in part due to the June 1970 General Election and throughout 1970 and 1971 Cox continued to promote the ARC’s cause. After Cox’s retirement Victor Rothschild, as chairman of the Government’s Central Policy Review Staff proposed to apply his customer/contractor principle. Cox saw this as a major threat to the survival of the ARC and publicly expressed his strong opposition to the Rothschild proposals. E.G. Cox NCUACS 123/9/03 7 Amongst the achievements of Cox’s Secretaryship were the establishment of new Units, including the Unit of Nitrogen Fixation in 1963 under the direction of Joseph Chatt and the Unit of Structural Chemistry in 1966 under the direction of R.S. Nyholm. The ARC had assumed responsibility for food research in 1959 and two newresearchinstitutes were established in Cox’s time, the Meat Research Institute near the University of Bristol in 1963 and the Food Research Institute in association with the University of East Anglia in 1965. In retirement Cox gave valuable voluntary service to the British Association as a honorary general secretary, 1971-1976 and to the Royal Institution as honorary treasurer, 1971-1976. In 1929 Cox married Lucie Baker with whom he had a daughter, Patricia Ann and a son, Keith. Both achieved distinction. Patricia became Under Secretary, Scottish Home and Health Department and Keith (FRS 1988), Reader in Geology at Oxford University. Lucie Cox died suddenly in 1962 and Cox subsequently married Mary Rosaleen Truter, his former Leeds colleague and then Deputy Director of the ARC Unit of Structural Chemistry, in 1968. Cox waselected FRS in 1954 and knighted in 1964. He died on 23 June 1996. For further information about Cox’s career see D.W.J. Cruickshank, ‘Sir Ernest Gordon Cox, K.B.E’, Biographical Memoirs of Fellows of the Royal Society, vol 46 (2000). The preceding biographical account draws on the memoir and otherobituary writing by Cruickshank and F.S. Dainton. DESCRIPTION OF THE COLLECTION The material is presented in the order given in the List of Contents. The papers cover the period 1886-1999. Section A, Biographical, includes a number of shorter autobiographical and biographical accounts, significant material relating to career and honours including the ARC appointment and such occasions as the 80th birthday celebrations. There is also a significant photographic record, 1927-1993, including photographs taken in the Leeds Chemistry Department, at ARC occasions and at crystallographic conferences. Section B, Research, documents Cox’s scientific research in the form of notebooks, 1927-1946, and an alphabetical sequence of topic folders from ‘Ardealite and other minerals relating to gypsum’ to ‘Weissenberg apparatus’ including correspondence, notes, data, reports and X-ray photographs. There is a good record of the wartime research of Cox and Birmingham colleagues on explosives. E.G. Cox NCUACS 123/9/03 8 Section C, Second World War, presents a record of Cox’s activities in connexion with the SOE and Belgian Resistance Group including wartime diaries and photographs. Section D, University of Leeds, includes significant documentation of the Leeds Chemistry Department. Papers re the research activities of the department throw light on the work of research students, use of computers andthe information Cox prepared for his successor. Teaching materials include lecture notes both for Leeds University degree courses and postgraduate summer schools on crystallographic methods held at Leeds. Section E, Agricultural Research Council, presents extensive documentation of Cox’s Secretaryship of the ARCincluding the controversies associated with the Osmond Committee and the Rothschild Report, of the later years of the Secretaryship. This documentation comprises a personal record of notes on index cards and in notebooks, 1961-1971, a major sequence of general correspondence and papers which continues to 1994 reflecting Cox’s ongoing interest in the ARC and agricultural research after he stepped down from the Secretaryship in 1971, an alphabetical sequenceof topic folders from ‘Achievements in Agric. Research’ to ‘Units’ and an assemblage of press-cuttings for the period 1969- 1972. Section F, Lectures and publications, documents Cox’s public and invitation lectures in the form of drafts, 1930s-1975, and his scientific papers in the form of off-prints, 1928-1986. The lectures material is presented in two sequences, one devotedto scientific topics to his departure from Leeds, and a second, more miscellaneous one, which includes lectures and speeches as Secretary of the Agricultural Research Council and, for convenience, a little broadcasts material. In addition to theoff- prints of scientific papers there is a record of Cox’s letters to the press and book reviews. Section G, Societies and organisations, presents significant documentation of a small number of such bodies, especially the British Association for the Advancement of Science, Royal Institution and the Royal Society. Although Coxfirst attended a British Association meeting as a student the surviving papers relate to his post-retirement service as one of the honorary General Secretaries, 1971-1976 and Honorary Auditor, 1976-1983. Thereis a little correspondence with MagnusPikerelating to the BA Chairmanship. Cox, likewise, had a long association with the RoyalInstitution dating from 1927. The bulk of the documentation relates to matters of finance and administration associated with his post-retirement service as Honorary Treasurer, 1971-1976 and the Bragg Lecture which Cox helped to establish in recognition of the achievements of W.H. and W.L. Bragg. Cox gave the 1993 Bragg Lecture jointly with M.F. Perutz. The bulk of the Royal Society material documents his membership of the Royal Society Club, 1963-1996. E.G. Cox NCUACS 123/9/03 9 Section H, Visits and conferences, is not extensive but includes some documentation of early national and international crystallography meetings and a visit to Israel in May 1964 to make a specialist examination of the administration of agricultural research in the country Section J, Correspondence, is the largest componentin the collection and covers an extendedperiod, 1916-1996. The presentation follows Cox’s own arrangementof it into a number of alphabetical and chronological sequencesincluding ‘Pre-War Scientific Correspondence’ and ‘private correspondence ARC 1960-1971’. An untitled alphabetical sequence includes many of his colleagues and pupils in the Leeds chemistry department and leading figures in agricultural research. Thereis also an index of correspondents. The papers and correspondenceof Cox’s son, Keith Gordon Cox, were catalogued by the NCUACS in 2001 for deposit in the Library, Oxford University Museum of Natural History (NCUACScatalogue no. 96/1/01).
