INTRODUCTION

The papers of Gordon Ferrie Hull, for over forty years a professor of physics at Dartmouth College and best known for his collaboration on the light and pressure experiments with Ernest Fox Nichols, have been divided into ten sections and are stored in thirteen boxes occupying twenty linear shelf feet. The collection, donated by Gordon F. Hull, Jr., is made up largely of notes, data, papers, correspondence, and articles relating to Hull's interests in theoretical and applied physics. Arranged chronologically the materials cover the progress of Professor Hull's career from his education at the universities of Toronto and Chicago through his years with Dartmouth and the military. In addition to the pressure of light experiments there is original work on the acceleration of charged particles, ballistics, and radio waves, as well as student theses, scientific articles, and drafts of Hull's textbook, Elementary Modern Physics. The correspondence section which includes letters from most of the contemporary leaders of this field indicate Hull's awareness of the social as well as scientific implications of the newly discovered power of the atom. A more complete account of the collection and its uses is contained in the November 1971 issue of the Dartmouth College Library Bulletin, a copy of which may be found in the first folder of box number one.
