CSAC 61/5/78 CONTEMPORARY SCIENTIFIC ARCHIVES CENTRE Supported by the Royal Society, the British Library and the Council of Engineering Institutions REPORT ON THE PAPERS OF Dr. Edward Hindle, F.R.S. (1886-1973) Compiled by: Jeannine Alton Harriot Weiskittel Deposited in the Archives of the University of Glasgow 1978 E. Hindle CSAC 61/5/78 DESCRIPTION OF THE COLLECTION 1 The material was received from Miss Phyllis Barclay-Smith, C.B.E. Many of the items are in poor and fragile condition. The collection covers most aspects of Hindle's scientific career, and includes some information not elsewhere recorded, such as the proposed expedition to Uganda and Nyasaland in September 1914 (see B.5-B.9) and Hindle's reported death in Africa (see A.2); the box of publications (C.55), though not complete, contains several items not recorded either in the Bibliography of the Royal Society Memoir (A.1) or the 'List of Publications’ (A.2), and, in conjunction with Section C, gives a fuller picture of Hindle's scientific and general writings than would otherwise obtain. Hindle's friendly relations with G.H.F. Nuttall, J. Loeb, J.E. Marchoux and other colleagues are also clear (see under Index of correspondents), and his attempt to improve international understanding by means of the proposed publication 'One World! can be seen in B.102-B. 106. Section B (scientific research and activities) is the largest in the col- lection, and includes scientific material (laboratory notebooks, professional correspondence) and some biographical and administrative correspondence relating to appointments, tenure and the like. The major fields of Hindle's work are fully covered, notably his work on kala-azar, yellow fever and other viruses, and the incident of laboratory infection which affected him, his assistants, and hospital staff attending them. In addition, there is evidence of what has been described by the author of the Royal Society Memoir, Professor P.C.C. Garnham, F.R.S., as his 'electicism and opportunism in science, in that the nature of his research was governed by the conditions in which he happened to be living at the time'; an example of this might be his observations at Dax on the fauna of hot springs (see B.81, B.90) and his interest in hamsters (see B. 37, B.93-B. 100). Much of Hindle's surviving scientific correspondence is included in Section B; Section D (Correspondence) is in consequence relatively brief. Very few records survive relating to Hindle's many honorary posts in Associations and Societies, and the interest he took in such activities, both pro- fessional and non-professional. A list of some of these is given in the Royal Society Memoir, and the 'Honours and Awards! listed in A.24-A. 30 also provide some indication of the wide range of Hindle's interests. See also A.3]1 E.
