Biography of Henry Askew Barton

Henry Askew Barton was born on June 27th, 1898 to Henry Lester and Caroline Askew Barton. He attended Thurston Preparatory School in Pennsylvania and Detroit University School in Michigan. In 1915 he entered the University of Michigan as a student of electrical engineering. The following year he transferred to Princeton University where he received a B.S. in 1919, and a degree in electrical engineering in 1921.

From 1921 to 1923, Barton worked as an engineer for the American Telephone and Telegraph Company in the Department of Development and Research. In 1924 he returned to Princeton for advanced study in physics, receiving his M.A. in 1924 and his Ph.D. in 1925 on "The Ionization of Argon and Hydrogen Chloride." During the years 1925-1927, he continued to do research on polyatomic gases as a National Research Council Fellow at Harvard University. From 1927-1929, he served as a research fellow for the Bartol Research Foundation Laboratories.

In 1929 Barton was appointed Assistant Professor at Cornell University and remained there until 1931.

From 1931 to 1957, Barton was the director of the American Institute of Physics and associate director from 1957 to 1963. The American Institute of Physics is a federation of member societies including: the American Physical Society, the Optical Society of America, the Acoustical Society of America, the Society of Rheology, the American Association of Physics Teachers, the American Crystallographic Society, and the American Astronomical Society, as well as several affiliated societies. For more information on the American Institute of Physics, see the History of the American Institute of Physics, written by Barton.

Barton's other professional activities included a vice chairmanship of the Division of the Physical Sciences of the National Research Council in Washington, 1933-1945. He served on several fellowship boards of the Council. He founded and was the first director of the Office of Scientific Personnel of the National Research Council. This office now plays on important role in advising government agencies. During World War II, Barton was consultant to the National Roster of Scientific and Specialized Personnel in the War Manpower Commission.

After the war, he served on the Advisory Committee on Student Deferment of the Selective Service System. In 1958 he helped to found and became President of the Scientific Manpower Commission, a non-government agency established by the major scientific societies of the United States. He also served as the Secretary of the United States National Committee of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics, attending the 8th General Assembly of the Union in London in 1954 as an appointed delegate of the United States.

Barton was a director of the Princeton Bank and Trust Company; a member of the University Club, New York; Cosmos Club, Washington; Nassau Club of Princeton; various scientific societies; Phi Beta Kappa; and Sigma Xi. During World War I, he served briefly in the U. S. Army and was in training for a commission in heavy artillery when the war ended.

Scope and Contents of Collection

The Barton Collection (mainly correspondence and scientific reports) was transferred from Barton's office to the AIP Archives on March 3, 1970. The materials are contained in 92 manuscript boxes, occupying 44 linear feet of space. The first part of the collection, correspondence, was separated into two sections. The first covers the years 1931-1941 and the second covers the years 1942-1947. This material was filed chronologically and then alphabetically by subject as far as possible by Barton's secretary. A folder listing was also made for this material.

The rest of the Barton collection arrived in a rather disorganized state. These folders of material were reorganized without disturbing the contents of the folders. The correspondence for the period 1948-1964 was organized in the same manner as the correspondence for 1931-1947. This material was separated into four sections: 1948-1950, 1951-1952, 1953-1962, 1963-1964. Following this correspondence is a series of straight chronological correspondence covering the years 1949-1962. These letters seem to be Barton's copies of letters sent.

The rest of the collection was subdivided into various categories corresponding to Barton's work for the American Institute of Physics, as well as his activities as a director of the National Research Council, and his activities in the capacity of a physicist. This series is arranged by subject and then chronologically within these subject headings. A container list follows.
