Daniels NCUACS109/8/02 GENERAL INTRODUCTION PROVENANCE 5 The papers were received from Mrs Barbara Daniels, widow,in June 2001 OUTLINE OF THE CAREER OF HENRYELLIS DANIELS Daniels was born in London on 2 October 1912. He was educated at the Sciennes School, Edinburgh and George Heriot’s School, Edinburgh, obtaining a scholarship to read mathematics at Edinburgh University where he graduated MA in 1933. With the encouragementof the head of department, E.T. Whittaker, he went for a further period of study at Cambridge University, winning a Major Mathematical Scholarship to Clare College. Amongst his Cambridge studies he took a course in statistics with practical exercises which wasprovided by the School of Agriculture. In 1935 he was appointed Statistician at the Wool Research Industries Association, Leeds to study mathematical and statistical aspects of the wool industries. Skeins of wool are bundles of fibres and the mathematical theory of ‘fibre bundles’ was one that Daniels returned to again and again in his career. One of Daniels’ colleagues at Leeds was the biochemist A.J.P. Martin who, with R.L.M. Synge, was working on the development of paper chromatography for which they were awarded a Nobel Prize. Daniels contributed a mathematical appendix to their key paper giving a quantitative explanation of why the method works. During the Second World War Daniels was seconded to the Air Warfare Analysis Group in the Ministry of Aircraft Production to work on improvements in radiolocation. This work led in due course to a major paper on position finding in the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society. In 1947 he returned to Cambridge as Lecturer in Mathematics attached to the newly formed Statistical Laboratory which offered a postgraduate Diploma in Statistics. Here he played a crucial role in the formation of the Laboratory's many impressive students but becameverycritical of the University’s treatment of his subject, there being no professor and none of the academic staff held college fellowships. In 1957 Birmingham University established a Chair in Mathematical Statistics and Daniels was invited to apply. Here he spent 21 years, retiring from the Chair in 1978 when he returned to Cambridge to continue research in association with the Statistical Laboratory. Amongst his statistical work at Birmingham was a close research relationship with J.C. Squire, a leading member of the medical faculty. Daniels’ research was characterised by his deploymentof classical mathematical techniquesto solve very difficult probabilistic problems arising from scientific issues. H.E. Daniels NCUACS 109/8/02 6 Daniels’ distinction in mathematical statistics was recognised by his colleagues and the wider scientific community. In 1974-1975 he served as President of the Royal Statistical Society which awarded him its Guy Medal in silver in 1957 and in gold in 1984. In 1985 he was elected an honorary fellow of the International Statistical Institute. He was elected FRS in 1980. Outside his professional activities Daniels had considerable musical interests and abilities which included playing the concertina. He was also a highly skilled watch repairer and assisted the watchmaker George Daniels design a watch which showedsidereal as well as solar time to a high degree of accuracy. Henry Daniels becamefirst a Freeman and then in 1984 a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers. In 1950 he married Barbara Edith Pickering with whom he had two children. He died 16 April 2000. DESCRIPTION OF THE COLLECTION The material in the collection is presented in the order shownin the List of Contents. It covers the period ca 1931-2000. Section A, Notebooks, provides important documentation of Daniels’ mathematical studies at Edinburgh and Cambridge. There are thirteen notebooks which appear to have been used by Daniels at Edinburgh for lecture notes. Members of the academic staff of the university represented by lecture notes include the head of department, E.T. Whittaker, C.G. Darwin, Tait Professor of Natural Philosophy, W.H. McCrea and A. Oppenheimer. As many as twenty notebooks appear to have been used at Cambridge. Members of the academic staff represented by lecture notes include A.S. Eddington, Plumian Professor of Astronomy and mathematics lecturers A.E. Ingham, M.H.A. Newmanand A.H. Wilson. Agricultural statistics are represented by notes of H.G. Sanders’ lectures on field experimentation with practical examples. There are a small number of caricature sketches (heads in profile) of Daniels’ lecturers in the student notebooks and Eddington is one of those represented in this way. A further six notebooks do not appear to be student notebooks; two are dated in 1950 when Daniels was a mathematics lecturer at Cambridge. Section B, Research, presents an alphabetical sequence byfolder or box title of Daniels’ research material. The principal contents of Daniels’ research folders are sequences of undated manuscript notes, only occasionally titled but often paginated and kept together with treasury tags; data, in manuscript form or automatically generated; and off-prints and photocopies of published material. Additionally there may be notes in hands other than Daniels’ and little correspondence. Topics include ‘bundles’ and epidemics and a number of Daniels’ folders were identified with the names of colleagues including D.J. Bartholomew and D.R. Cox. The earliest surviving material relates to the H.E. Daniels NCUACS 109/8/02 7 wartime work on navigational problems, and the postwar Decca Navigator System papers which were sent to Daniels in 1947 probablyrelate to this work. Section C, Lectures and publications, is the largest in the collection. There is a significant record of Daniels’ university teaching at Cambridge and Birmingham arranged alphabetically by foldertitle. Course topics include ‘Design of Experiments’, Epidemics, Mechanics and ‘Multivariate Analysis’. The documentation may include Daniels’ manuscript lecture notes, lists of students taking the courses, examples and problem sheets, and related material from colleagues. Daniels' annotation of his lecture notes gives some indication of how lecture courses were adapted over time. There is a shorter sequence of lecture course material arranged alphabetically by colleague. Amongst those represented are F.J. Anscombe, M.S. Bartlett, E.L. Lehmann and D. Williams. There is a good record of Daniels’ seminar and conference papersfor the last ten years of his life, 1990-2000. The documentation is principally transparencies and manuscript notes. For conferences in Uppsala, Sweden, in 1990 and Ascona, Switzerland, in 1995 and 2000 there is also correspondence concerning the arrangements for Daniels’ participation in the meeting. Daniels’ publications are represented by his bibliography and a good setof off-prints, 1932-2000. There is also a little miscellaneous correspondence and papers about publications by Daniels and G.A. Barnard, 1965- 2000. Section D, Correspondence, is not extensive. With the exception of brief correspondence re the Golden Jubilee of the Statistical Institute, Calcutta in 1981, it is the contents of a single folder, covering the period, 1992-1999. The correspondence is predominantly scientific and includes photocopies and manuscript drafts of Daniels’ replies. There is also an index of correspondents.
