OUTLINE OF THE CAREER OF ROBERT HANBURY BROWN Robert Hanbury Brown was born on 31 August 1916 in Aruvankadu, South India, where his father was in charge of a cordite factory. He was sent to England to be educated and attended Cottesmore Preparatory School in Hove, Sussex, from the age of eight to fourteen. In 1930 he entered Tonbridge School in Kent, switching to Brighton Technical College after only two years. The decision waspartly the product of strained family finances — his parents had divorced when he was about nine and in 1932 his stepfather disappeared in a cloud of debt — but Hanbury Brown had long shown an active interest in technological matters. His grandfather (the irrigation engineer Sir Robert Hanbury Brown) was one of the early pioneers of radio, and his legal guardian after his parents’ divorce was a consulting radio engineer. Hanbury Brown rememberedhis childhood as a happy time spent ‘always making radio sets or building something’. At Brighton Technical College he studied for an external degree in the University of London, graduating B.Sc. with first class honours in electrical engineering at the age of nineteen. At this time appearedalso his first publication (with his student friend Vic Tyler), on ‘Lamp polar curves on the cathode-ray oscillograph’. With a grant from East Sussex County Council he then embarked on a postgraduate course in advanced studies on telegraphy and telephony at City & Guilds of London Institute, then part of Imperial College. At the time he hoped to complete a doctorate in radio engineering and to pursue a career that would combine his interest in radio with flying, for which he had developed a yen. Hanbury Brown'sinvolvementboth with the new University of London Air Squadron and with cathode- ray tubes drew the interest of the Rector of Imperial College, Henry Tizard. Tizard chaired a committee that had recently been set up by the Air Ministry to find ways of protecting Britain from possible attack from enemy aircraft. Through Tizard’s intervention Hanbury Brown came to be recruited into an experimental project instigated by Robert Watson-Watt, to develop a system of radio- location using pulse/echo techniquefor aircraft detection. In August 1936 Hanbury Brown joined what would grow into the Telecommunications Research Establishment (TRE) and helped develop Chain Home, an air surveillance system of ground stations along the East and South Coasts that proved vital in the 1940 Battle of Britain. From the autumn of 1937 he worked in the airborne radar group under E. G. Bowen, which transferred to the USA in 1942 for a joint British-American mission on air defence. Returning three years later he rejoined TRE, helping the Air Historical Branch of the Air Interview with R. Bhathal, 10 February 1995. See A.30. R. Hanbury Brown NCUACS151/1/07 6 Ministry write an account of airborne radar and working on the application of the pulsed navigational aid GEE to civil aviation. A research consultancy set up by Watson-Watt in 1947 offered more interesting prospects for the conversion of wartime developments into peacetime technologies. Hanbury Brown allowed himself to be recruited and worked as a consulting engineer until Watson- Watt decided to move the firm to Canada. After pondering a number of career possibilities, he returned to academia in the autumn of 1949, when he started as a Ph.D. studentin radio astronomy at the University of Manchester. It has been said that the story of radio astronomy effectively began with the return of physicists from wartime radar developmentand ‘with their eagerness and ability to follow up certain discoveries made accidentally in a military context’. Hanbury Brown very much exemplifies this story — though as an engineer as much as a physicist. His impact at Jodrell Bank, where Manchester’s radio astronomy group was based, was instantaneous. The development for which he achieved his greatest distinction lay in interferometry, indeed in showing how the principle of the intensity interferometer could be applied to optical interferometry. In 1956, he and the mathematician R. Q. Twiss showedonthe basis of a laboratory experiment that the time of arrival of photons at two separate detectors wascorrelated (Hanbury Brown-Twiss effect). Physicists struggled with the idea, photon correlation being inconceivable from a quantum theoretical perspective; yet Hanbury Brown and Twiss proceeded to demonstrate on the example of the star Sirius how the phenomenon could be used in an interferometer to measure the apparent angular diameter of bright visual stars. Their work earned them a Michelson Medal for opening up the subject of quantum optics. With the controversy over the Hanbury Brown-Twisseffect in full swing, Hanbury Brown proposed a large optical interferometer to measure the diameters of other main sequence stars. The Department of Scientific and Industrial Research agreed to fund the initial design costs and a large part of the eventual construction costs for an instrument consisting of two reflectors, mounted on a circular railway track 188 metres in diameter. The instrument was manufacturedin Britain and Italy, but built in the Australian bush near Narrabri in New South Wales. The construction of the Narrabri Stellar Intensity Interferometer (NSII) at a fairly remote site was a heroic task, which kept Hanbury Brown full- time in Australia. In 1964, two years into the mission, he resigned from the personal chair which the University of Manchester had created for him in 1960, and accepted an appointment as Professor of Physics (Astronomy) at the University of Sydney. Despite tempting offers to go elsewhere after the NSII was decommissioned in 1974, he stayed on to explore a next generation instrument. This was not to be another intensity interferometer as initially envisaged, but a modernised Michelson interferometer. As Hanbury Brown himself was keen to emphasize, the development of this technically demanding instrument, the Sydney University Stellar Interferometer (SUSI), became the project of his colleague John Davis. It took almost twenty years to design the SUSI and to ensure that it was built. The SUSI openedin 1991, ten years after Hanbury Brownofficially retired. 2D. Edge and M. Mulkay, Astronomy Transformed. The Emergenceof Radio Astronomyin Britain (John Wiley, 1976), ix. R. Hanbury Brown NCUACS 151/1/07 7 Hanbury Brown’s commitments to science manifested beyond the instruments and institutions with which he was mostvisibly affiliated. His involvements in such ventures of the 1970s as the Anglo- Australian-Telescope (AAT) or the Science Task Forceboth illustrate in their way how he envisaged future science. For instance, he used a job interview for the directorship of the new AATtocriticize centralist tendencies in Australian science funding, pleading for greater equality of the state universities vis-a-vis the flagship of Australian academia, the Australian National University. Likewise, as a member of the Science Task Force, a consultative committee of the Royal Commission on Australian Government Administration, he expressed his concerns over changesin the scientific ethos under government funding, which had become the norm after World War II. The now classic report of the Task Force, Towards Diversity and Adaptability (1975), was imbued with the ideal of scientific autonomy. Over the years Hanbury Brown developed his dimension as a public scientist also in his writings and his lectures. He became an interpreter of science who explained to non-expert audiences his particular science, interferometry, as well as his views on the scientific enterprise more broadly. His broadcasts and other public performances bear this out, as do such monographs as his account of The Intensity Interferometer (1974) or the more philosophical Man and the Stars (1978) and The Wisdom of Science (1986). In his last publication, There are no Dinosaursin the Bible, which he had written for his grandchildren and which appeared posthumously, he returned to a theme that had occupied him over a number of decades, the relations between science and religion. Another subject close to his heart was his wartime experiences. Hanbury Brown’s friendships from the radar days lasted a lifetime, and he continued to explore the history of radar with younger radar buffs, through reunions and celebratory occasions, in television programmes and sound recordings, and in his autobiography, Boffin: A Personal Story of the Early Days of Radar, Radio Astronomy and Quantum Optics (1991). Indeed, he was rumoured to have been the prototype prompting the expression ‘boffin’ (for a technological expert). Hanbury Brown accumulated many honours during his long career. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1960 and a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science in 1967. In 1986, he was made a Companion of the Order of Australia. He married Hilda Heather Chesterman in 1952. They had one daughter and two sons (twins). He died on 16 January 2002. DESCRIPTION OF THE COLLECTION Although there is significant material from Hanbury Brown’s education and early career, including wartime service, the bulk of this archive dates from the 1960s to the late 1990s and there is thus a pronounced emphasis on Hanbury Brown’s career following his departure for Australia. His war-time research, the transition to radio astronomy and the intense collaborations in the Jodrell Bank group R. Hanbury Brown NCUACS151/1/07 8 are more sketchily documented, as is in fact his and John Davis’s quest for an instrument to succeed the NSII. Section A, Biographical, presents a wide range of material relating to Hanbury Brown’s life and career.It includes the contents of a boxfile of biographical correspondence from the 1930s and 1940s documenting his education, wartime service and immediate postwar career. There are transcripts of interviews, proceedings of conferences to honour his achievements, and drafts (with correspondence) of his Royal Society/Australian Academy of Science Biographical Memoir and other tributes and obituaries. The section includes family material, including letters to his wife Heather before and after their marriage, certificates of education and of awards, and a series of diaries 1936-1998. Thereis also photographic material. Section B, Radar, documents aspects of Hanbury Brown’s war work from early experiments at Martlesham airfield in Suffolk to memorabilia (including a poem on the ‘radar man’). His time with the Combined Research Group at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, DC, USA,is covered by memoranda and photostats of research reports. Of particular interest is the material relating to the claim on the part of the airborne radar team for an award for the design and development of metre- wave airborne radar. This section further includes reunion activities in the 1990s. Section C, Jodrell Bank, is the smallest section. It contains an early letter to J. A. Ratcliffe in which Hanbury Brown outlined a radio interferometer of high resolution, pen-recordedinscriptions of signals from Cassiopeia and Sirius, and a notebook with measurements on Sirius that provided practical vindication of the Hanbury Brown-Twisseffect. There are memoranda and proposals on instruments, notably the steerable radio telescope and the interferometer that was eventually built in Narrabri. The development of this latter instrument is further documented by a notebook containing detailed calculations and tests of sample equipment for the future NSII. A number of photographs show various Jodrell Bank individuals and apparatus. Section D, Australia, essentially covers three astronomical instruments and their genesis. Correspondence, notebooks, photographs and promotional materials document the NSII. The story of the successor instrument, the SUSI, is represented chiefly by photographs of an early model showing a Very Large Stellar Intensity Interferometer, a subsequent proposal of a Michelson interferometer, and discussions between Hanbury Brown and John Davis. There is also correspondence re the AAT and the future of science and engineering in the University of Sydney. Section E, Research Files, the second-largest section, contains research materials which Hanbury Brown accumulated over many decades. Thesefiles testify to three foci of enduring interest on his part, (a) the story of radar, (b) radio astronomy, and (c) reflections about science. The history of radar is documented by original documents and pamphlets, correspondence with both fellow radar pioneers and younger radar buffs, memoirs, and drafts of equipment biographies. The subsection on radio astronomy includes literature on various types of interferometers and on quantum theory, correspondence and draft publications on the behaviour of photons (these from the time of the R. Hanbury Brown NCUACS 151/1/07 9 controversy over the Hanbury Brown-Twisseffect), and a special section on his ‘dear friend Sirius’.° A subsection is dedicated to historical topics in radio astronomy. Material on reflections about science consists of his notes on science-historical literature; correspondence, notes and literature on science’s relations with religion; and general articles. Section F, Publications and Lectures, is the largest componentof this collection. It documents some of Hanbury Brown’s publications, including offprints, books, reviews and newspaper articles, starting with his 1935 publication on the cathode-ray oscillograph. The lectures portion presents drafts, outlines and index card notes for many of Hanbury Brown’s speaking engagements over almostfive decades, including his broadcasts. This material is qualitatively heterogeneous, ranging from expert conference papersto light-hearted dinner toasts. Sound and video recordings of some of these can be found in Section J. Section G, Societies and Organisations, is another short section. It documents a few of Hanbury Brown’s involvements with a variety of bodies from the National Centre for Basic Sciences in Calcutta, India, to the Astronomical Society of Australia. There is correspondence with the Royal Society and with the Institution of Electrical Engineers. Material includes copies of reports (co-authored by Hanbury Brown) to the International Scientific Radio Union (URSI) and to the Royal Commission on Australian Government Administration. Section H, Correspondence, presents several series of correspondence which together span seven decades. There are three alphabetical sequences, one dating from the 1940s to the early 1950s, the second consisting of named correspondents,the third dating chiefly from the 1980s and 1990s(with a few earlier letters). The first sequence includes family letters and correspondence about the Sir Robert Watson-Watt & Partners consultancy. Hanbury Brown’s named correspondents in the second sequence are colleagues and friends from the days of radar and early radio astronomy, and his colleague John Davis. The third sequence ranges over a multitude of correspondents and topics. It reflects chiefly Hanbury Brown’s activities after his return from Australia in 1991. This section closes with a notebooklisting all the letters Hanbury Brown sent between 1990 and 1996. Section J, Non-textual media, spans audiotapes, videotapes, other visual material, and computer disks. The audiotapes date from 1973 to 1999 and include recordings of Hanbury Brown’s wife Heather. Videotapesare principally of Hanbury Brown’s contributions to television documentaries and interviews on his wartime work. The visual material includes an extensive slide collection, which appears to have served him as a store on which to draw for his lecturing activities. The computer disks reflect both Hanbury Brown’s changing word processing equipment and his diverse activities, from his writings to his correspondencewith colleagues, friends, institutions, businesses and soforth. Notall of these disks have been deciphered at this stage of processing. There is also an index of correspondents. 3 Letter to J. M. Bennett, 1 June 1994, H.31. R. Hanbury Brown NCUACS 151/1/07 10 LOCATION OF FURTHER MATERIAL A substantial portion of Hanbury Brown’s personal archive was destroyed in 1961 owing to a misunderstanding.“ Some material relating to his Jodrell Bank period can be found in the papers of A. C. B. Lovell in the Jodrell Bank Archive at the John Rylands University Library of the University of Manchester. Hanbury Brownleft many of the documentsrelating to his work in astronomyin Australia to the University of Sydney, where he thought they belonged. Theseare in the University Archives of the University of Sydney and include correspondence regarding the intensity interferometer at Narrabri, technical papers, funding and general correspondence, 1957-1983. There is also correspondence on the AAT, 1967-1974, and an audio tape interview on his retirement in 1981. Further material, notably 27 scrapbooks compiled by Hanbury Brown’s wife Heather, is in the hands of the family. It is anticipated that they will be deposited at the Royal Society to join this collection in due course. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Weare grateful to Dr Marion Hanbury Brownfor making the papers available and for information on family history, and to Professor John Davis for information and advice especially on Section D.
