Taylor CSAC 67/5/79 GENERAL INTRODUCTION PROVENANCE The material was received from Professor G.K. Batchelor, Taylor's scientific executor. It had been assembled over a period of time from various sites in 'Farmfield', Taylor's home in Cambridge, and from colleagues and friends; it represents all that remains of Taylor's personal and professional papers. DESCRIPTION These surviving records are variable - even capricious - in content and time- span, for reasons inherent in Taylor's temperament, interests and methods of work. For most of his career he held research posts, especially the Yarrow Research Professorship of the Royal Society, to which he was appointed in 1923; he was thus almost wholly absolved from routine teaching, administrative, departmental or institutional tasks, and free to pursue whatever research suggested itself, or was suggested to him. He had the help of his technician, Walter Thompson, and a room in the Cavendish Laboratory, originally made available by Rutherford, who acceptable official style (see, for example, C.37, C.41, C.42, C.45, C.49, C.50). Conversely, several letters in Section D are statements of research in office or secretarial help. | He worked with rough notes and drawings, often on described Taylor as being 'paid provided he does no work'. This lack of forma! (see B.2,B.3, for examples). Several of the official committee reports in Section any piece of paper that came to hand; even when he used a notebook of more con- C originally took the form of personal letters which were then typed out in a more ventional kind, the content is somewhat heterogeneous and lacks dates or headings establishment obligations, though ideal for Taylor's research, meant that he had no Memoir Biographical Memoirs of Fellows of the Royal Society, 22, 1976), p.597: progress, and were typed up and used as such by the recipients. Furthermore, it should be remembered that Taylor did much work at home at 'Farmfield', whence most of the surviving letters are addressed. The general consequences of these conditions of work are often mentioned in biographical articles about Taylor, and are best summarised by Batchelor in his G.1|. Taylor CSAC 67/5/79 life | know, at no time Perhaps | should explain here that, so far as in his life did Taylor employ a secretary or have his letters typed. The documentary evidence of what he did throughout his consists wholly of incoming letters and papers (including, of course, his own in published form), and since his filing system was rudi- mentary, and dependent more on his wife's wish to contain the papers in one room than on his need to find something later, sure there are some gaps. copy of every published paper in duplicated reports, by him or by someone else, often remained in the envelopes in which they were delivered, and incoming letters were collected in large brown-envelopes marked only with the year, which led to some documents being thrown out in order to make room for new ones, and few of the letters and documents that came in before about 1960 have survived. Periodically Stephanie had a clearing-up operation He did make an effort to retain one a set of boxes, but typed or | am The result is that very little now survives by way of notebooks, experimental records or laboratory observations to document Taylor's scientific research (see In order to supplement these scanty resources, Batchelor assembled Section B). from some of Taylor's correspondents copies of letters which might permit the re- construction of a collaborative piece of research, joint publication or substantial scientific discussion. Successful examples of this enterprise are enumerated in Because of work brought together in Section C. in the introduction to Section D. In addition, Batchelor assembled many of the A word may be said here about Taylor's handwriting. Although he wrote a the paucity of surviving material by Taylor himself, a list of all items in that the introduction to Section D and itemised in the relevant entries. Section which include his letters or draft replies to correspondents is also given fairly standard legible hand until about 1913 (see the manuscript of the Adams reports and committee papers by Taylor, and these, together with other drafts and papers found in the collection, constitute the considerable body of unpublished recipients of his letters had typed copies made. characteristic script, resembling the waves and eddies it often describes, of most Prize Essay in C.2), the 'Scotia' notebook of the same year (see B.1) is hand, especially in her later years, and is not easy to read, Most of the of his subsequent letters and papers, It has certain similarities with his mother's in the G.1. Taylor CSAC 67/5/79 The personal material in Section A includes documents relating to a little known episode in 1911 when Taylor was obliged to spend several months in sanatorium with a lung infection (see A.17 - A.23), and a considerable amount of a information relating to Taylor's family, and particularly to the Boole connection. Taylor's mother, Margaret, was the second of the five daughters of George Boole, and Taylor both inherited and contributed to a sense of family continuity (see especially A.79 - A.135 and introductory note). E.1 - E.15 are auseful additional record of Taylor's family, career, travels and The numerous photographs in interests. Probably the most widely known of Taylor's achievements is the CQR anchor. Material relating to this can be found in A.157, A.160, B.6, C.22, C.23, C.79, D.26, D.63, E.14. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS As will be clear from the foregoing, the essential debt is owed to G.K. Batchelor. The assembling, ordering and identification of many of the items in the collection are primarily due to his expert knowledge, and his personal affection for Taylor.

The many letters from nephews and nieces of varying degrees, and of more remote cousinage (esp.

Taylor CSAC 67/5/79 SECTION D — SCIENTIFIC CORRESPONDENCE _D.1 - D.105 The material is presented alphabetically, with dates and a brief indication of any information of particular interest. Taylor's undimmed scientific reputation, the high respect he enjoyed, and the eagerness with which younger scientists continued to seek and accept his advice, emerge with remarkable clarity from the letters, most of which date from the later period of his life. As with the personal correspondence in Section A, only incoming letters usually survive. Professor G.K. Batchelor was, however, able to obtain originals or photocopies of Taylor's letters from some of his correspondents, and thus recon- struct a relatively complete sequence.

It ‘You were the fountain head in so many ways of the big advances made in the field of underwater explosions since 1939. Your papers on shock wave theory and on the damage processes led to important advances; also your paper on the vertical motion of the bubble was the foundation of bubble theory. In addition, in the early days of Undex you inspired people like Penney, Temperley, Fox and Bryant (to name only a few) who in turn made their contributions. In every respect your guidance on both Undex Panels has been of immense value. ' There is a similar letter from A.N. Harrison, Director of Naval Construction.
