  • Abstract

    Frerichs came to Northwestern in 1947, at the request of Prof. Robert J. Cashman, to work as a research investigator in the Department of Physics. In 1952 he joined Prof. Huxford's project, in the same department. In 1956 Frerichs was appointed to the faculty as a professor of electrical engineering in the Technological Institute. This small collection of Frerichs papers includes biographical materials, correspondence, and research files, and spans the period 1947 to 1983 with most of the material falling between 1947 and 1965.
