Bates CSAC 83/1/82 GENERAL INTRODUCTION Leslie Fleetwood Bates was born at Kingswood, Bristol, in 1897. He was educated at the Merchant Venturers' School and the University of Bristol where he read physics, graduating in 1916. He spent the next four years as a radiographer with the British army in India, returning to Bristol in 1920 to pursue research. He remained at Bristol until 1922, and it was during this period that he was introduced by A.P. Chattock to the study of magnetism which became his main research interest for the rest of his life. After what Bates described as a two years 'interlude', working under Rutherford at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge, where he completed a Ph.D. thesis on the study of long range alpha particles, Bates was appointed to a lecture- ship at University College, London, in 1924. In 1930 he was promoted to Reader in Physics and in 1936 he became Lancashire-Spencer Professor of Physics at the University College (later University) of Nottingham. There is very little material in the collection from Bates's pre-Notfingham career; see B.1 - B.3 for notebooks from the period at Bristol, and B.4 - B.13 for lectures delivered to undergraduates at London. However, Bates continued to collection. In particular he acted as Visiting Examiner, 1961-77 (see F.1 - F.26), He established a thriving research group based on his own interest in magnetism not only in his own department but in the University as a whole. He was a member retain strong links with London University, and these are well documented in the and was also invited to deliver several series of lectures on magnetism (see B.14 - and was most actively involved in administration and general conduct of affairs, are other of the Association of University Teachers (President, 1938-39) and Deputy Vice- Chancellor of the University, 1953-55 (see C.11). He was also responsible for the building of a large new Physics Department (see C.14 - €.23) which he was able to direct for a short time before his retirement in 1964. Most of the material relating to Nottingham University is to be found in Section C, but there B.16). Bates remained at Nottingham University until his retirement in 1964. L.F. Bates CSAC 83/1/82 papers scattered throughout the collection - see the list of references in the intro- duction to Section C.

Of Bates's actual scientific work very little remains, apart from the early There are no other notebooks or laboratory records, only notebooks at C.1 -C.3. drafts for lectures and publications. This may be explained by the fact that much of the collection, with the exception of a few items of personal or biographical interest, dates from the period after Bates's retirement. covering his examining activities and some of the committees on’ which he served, in particular the Royal Society Symbols Committee of which he was Chairman, 1968-77 (D.86 - D.106), the British Standards Institution Units and Symbols Standards Thus there is a wealth of papers Committee (D.11 -D.34), the University Grants Committee, for which Bates was an Assessor, 1965-68 (D.107 - D.118), and the University of London Academic Advisory Committee to investigate the future role of Birkbeck College (D.59 - D.73). Bates attached great importance to public work, and the Section covering . his membership of committees and societies is activities are as well documented as those mentioned above. a large one, even though not all his In particular, his see D.39 - D.44) led to the award of the C.B.E. in 1966. Another activity more directly connected with Bates's own research He was thus actively involved in several international conferences held work as Senior Scientific Adviser for Civil Defence, North Midland Region (1951-72, interests was his membership of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) Commission on Magnetism, of which he was Secretary, 1957-66 (see D.52 - D.57). He also under the auspices of IUPAP, many of which are documented in Section E. these, held at Nottingham in September 1964, was of special concer to Bates. As Chairman of the Organising Committee he was actively involved in the administra- tive detail of the conference; he delivered the 47th Guthrie Lecture on this occasion, and also 'celebrated' his retirement. speeches and letters of congratulation, most of which were assembled and kept together by Bates as likely to be of interest to a memoralist or biographer. Section A contains a number of items of biographical interest, especially One of conference, See E.10 - E.34 for a full record of the L.F. Bates CSAC 83/1/82 annotated some of his correspondence in the course of sorting it after his retirement in 1964, and his remarks have been quoted in the catalogue entries where appropriate. When Bates lost the regular service of a secretary on his retirement he would jot down the substance of his replies on his incoming letters, thus preserving the tenor of his correspondence despite the absence of carbon copies. detail and his conscientious handling of any matter that was brought to his attention His meticulous attention to are evident throughout the collection.

These form the first 3 items in the Section. The lectures include courses delivered to undergraduates at London University where Bates was Lecturer (1924-30) and Reader (1930-36). His association with London University continued after the move to Nottingham in 1936 and he continued to give occasional courses of lectures there as well as acting as an External Examiner until 1977. (See Section F.) Notes for all the surviving London University lectures are to be found at B.4 - B.16. The remainder of the lectures (B. 17 - B.32) were delivered at various universities and institutions in U.K. and abroad. They are presented in chrono~ logical order as far as possible, though not all of them are dated and some were delivered on more than one occasion. Items B.33 - B.47 mainly consist of ms. drafts and related correspondence for various publications, including some unpublished material.

The remainder contains correspondence re examining in other universities, including some over- seas, for both undergraduate and higher degrees, and advice on appointments, particularly in overseas universities. University of London, 1961-77 Bates served as Visiting Examiner to the Board of Studies in Physics. He advised on syllabus content, commented on draft examination papers, vetted written scripts and conducted oral examinations for the Colleges of the University and for external candidates. Degrees, Ancillary Physics, Course-Unit Physics, etc. - underwent major re-organisation in 1967, entailing alter- native sets of papers and tests for several years. Some of Bates's examining was arranged directly with Colleges, some via The examinations - for Honours a central board. Reports by Bates and H.T. Flint on syllabus and examinations in physics, 1961-64. Bates made very careful notes on the scripts he saw and on the candidates he was to examine, and compiled lists of questions and problems to be used at orals. Samples of these have been retained in F.26, F.27. mainly with H.T. Flint, December 1964-February 1966.

Bates acted as External Examiner for the B.Sc. in Physics Parts Il and III, 1964-69. Correspondence is mainly with the Professor of Physics, N.J. Skinner (a former student of Nottingham University), and includes several letters referring to the unsettled political situation in Nigeria and its effect on the University. There are also several exchanges with Ahmadu Bello University's London representative. In addition to Bates's comments on draft papers, which occur throughout the correspondence, there is also a set of draft papers for 1969 bearing his annotations. See also F.36. Invitations to serve as Visiting External Examiner from Brighton College of Technology (1964) and the Royal University of Malta (1965). both these invitations because of his commitments as External Examiner for London University. Bates was forced to decline Bates visited Ahmadu Bello twice in connection with his work as External Examiner, in 1965 and 1968.

On being advised to abbreviate the paper, he requested some help in improving the English of it and the Editor accordingly asked Bates if he knew of a research student willing to under- take the task. but the outbreak of war interrupted the proceedings, and the revised draft was put into storage until it could be sent to Koenigsberger for approval. Bates gave the ms. to J. C.Weston, On 14 November 1946, Koenigsberger wrote to Bates enquiring as to the fate of his manuscript. Bates initiated arrangements for its publication, but Koenigsberger died on 3 December and the paper had to be published posthumously.

Noakes was the Editor of Contemporary Physics and almost all the correspondence is about the day to day running of the journal. Editorial Board from the journal's inception in 1959 until his death, and the extent of his contribu- tion is manifest from the bulk of the papers that follow. He sought out authors (including many from among his former students), refereed papers and also contributed many articles and reviews himself. Physics, see B.40-B. 43. The correspondence mainly consists of letters from Noakes. Bates's replies are sometimes in the form of ms. drafts, or more often notes jotted on the incoming letters, and correspondence is interleaved with notes on papers refereed by Bates.
