BOX 39-259 Alphabetical File, 1929-2006
Correspondence, memoranda, reports, minutes, consulting contracts, speeches, writings, drafts and notes, photographs, blueprints, printed matter, and financial records.
Arranged in three files and therein alphabetically by name of person, organization, or topic, roughly following the groupings established by Townes. A Columbia University file closely follows Townes's tenure at that institution from 1948 to 1961. Files titled Set A and Set B largely begin with Townes's move to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1961 and continue through his years with the University of California at Berkeley. Overlapping years, organizations, topics, and persons are common among the three, but especially between Set A and Set B. Miscellaneous correspondence is interspersed within each letter of the alphabet under Columbia University and filed at the end of each letter in Set A and Set B.
