Overview Robert J. Cashman earned Master of Arts (1930) and Ph.D. (1935) degrees in physics from Northwestern University. He joined the Northwestern faculty as assistant professor of physics, becoming professor in 1947. Cashman's research interests centered on photovoltaic, photoemissive and photoconductive cells. His papers fill 19 boxes and span the years 1929-1988. The papers are organized in six main categories: biographical materials, education files, correspondence, teaching files, research and...
Abstract The Henry Crew Papers are arranged in two main categories: correspondence and diaries. Three folders of biographical materials precede the correspondence. Four folders of notebooks and one folder of publications and bibliographies follow the diaries. The papers richly document Crew's career and personal life from his graduate school days in the 1880's to his death at age 93 in 1953. Crew was an important figure in the development of experimental physics in the United States, as well as an...
