General note on the correspondence Professor Tolansky conducted an extensive correspondence with scientific colleagues, instrument and equipment manufacturers, learned and professional societies and the like. His special interests in surface topography of diamond and many other structures brought him numerous enquiries from the research departments of industrial and manu— facturing concerns. In addition, his many publications and his contributions to radio and television programmes involved him in correspondence with editors, journalists,producers and members of the general public. ; Tolansky dealt very conscientiously with this varied correspondence and many of his replies contain reports on work in progress in his laboratory or elsewhere, or matters of general personal or scientific interest. Wherever possible, an indication of information of this kind appears in the itemised list below. Not all correspondents are indexed, since in several cases the incoming letter has been lost and only Tolansky's reply remains. Known correspondents are listed on the relevant files,and in the Index on p. 30 S.T.. CeSeAeC. 24/1/75 H. Scientific correspondence. Items H.1 — H.103 from K.Murakawa, on hyperfine structures.
