Biography of Lewi Tonks

Lewi Tonks was born in New York City in 1897. He attended Columbia University and graduated with a B.S. degree in 1918 and took his PhD in 1923. His doctoral work included extensive e training in mathematical physics.

During World War I, Tonks interrupted his studies to conduct research for the U.S. Government at the New London Connecticut Naval Station on a sonar device for submarine detection. Again during the Second World War, he served the government by heading a General Electric research group on jamming magnetrons.

Joining the staff of General Electric as a research associate in 1923, he was assigned over the years to various projects at the General Engineering Laboratory in Schenectady, the company's Knolls Atomic Research Laboratory in Niskayuna, New York and its Atomic Power Equipment Department in Vallecitos, California. At these various locations, his research included studies in thermionic emission, ferromagnetic and magnetrons from microwave generation. In 1963, after forty years with G.E., he retired.

During his early years at General Electric, Tonks worked under the Nobel Laureate Irving Langmuir, the associate director of the Research Lab. It has been stated that Tonks' mathematical-physics skills linked with Langmuir's great physical insight made them a particularly successful research team. In 1929, Tonks and Langmuir coauthored two papers, one on plasma oscillations and the other on a general theory of a plasma. The two works have become part of the foundation of modern plasma physics.

Tonks' life was not totally taken up by scientific research. Always a man of principle, he was deeply concerned with social problems. For him it was the individual's freedom above all else that mattered. It was this line of thought that led Tonks on several occasions, to speak out and act against injustice as he saw it. Many time he would put up bail money for those who could not afford to do so themselves. And he also provided counseling for the poor in areas such as employment and education. After his retirement in 1963, Tonks was a volunteer worker for the Schenectady Human Rights Commission; he was also a member of the Clergy and Layman Concerned About Vietnam.

In July of 1971, Tonks died of a heart attack at the age of seventy-four. Lewi Tonks was a man who was truly concerned with his fellow man's lot in life. He did not isolate himself in an ivory tower, but rather threw himself into all aspects of human affairs.

This series contains miscellaneous Correspondence, 1932-1967 (1:II:6). In this folder, one can find several pieces of correspondence that reveal the character of Dr. Tonks. One is a draft of a letter (ca. 1954-1955) to be sent to a General Electric administrator explaining his reasons for wishing to appear before the McCarthy-Army hearings. For him it was a moral obligation to set right the accusations made against scientists by the McCarthy committee.

Also in the same folder is a letter (9-23-56) to Dr. Leland Haworth, Director of the Brookhaven National Laboratory, concerning Tonks' possible resignation from General Electric.

Series III. General Subject Files, ca. 1930's - 1960's

Letters, clippings and reprints on varied subjects.

This series has two folders on "Ball Lightening," 1959-1966 (1:III:3 and 4). Here is a subject that seems to have fascinated Tonks for several years. A natural phenomenon that interested many scientists, Tonks seemed to have kept it as a pet project of investigation. Included are several reports and papers on the subject.

In 1921, Albert Einstein came to New York and gave several lectures on physics at C.C.N.Y. Lewi Tonks, then a young doctoral student at Columbia University, attended the lectures and wrote some articles explaining them for the New York Times. His notes and the articles are contained in the folder entitled, "Einstein Lectures, C.C.N.Y., 1921" (1:III:6).

Over the years Tonks seems to have been asked how Langmuir came to use the term "plasma" for highly ionized gases. In the folder entitled "Birth of Plasma," 1964-1967, (1:III:5) there is a letter explaining the story and also an article that was published about the event.

In the 1960's, the Department of the Interior began a program in which nuclear reactors would be used to desalinate water to irrigate arid lands. Between the years 1962-1965, Lewi Tonks was part of the Office of the Scientific Advisor to the President and conducted a study on the desalination project which was a part of the Research and Development Program of the Office of the Department of Interior. A rather extensive set of folders converts the three years of investigation (2:III:19 - "Saline Water Conversion," 1962-1965).

Series IV. Research Notes and Draft Manuscripts of G.E. Lab Reports, 1924-1966

There are nine sound recordings (23 in., 78 rpm) that cover the years 1948-1953. Tonks was involved with the panel that appeared on the broadcasts, bringing the public up to date with current scientific facts. Complementing this set of recordings is a folder containing drafts of the scripts presented on the program. Entitled "General Electric Science Forum, WGY Radio," 1938-1952 (1:III:9). The file includes draft scripts, correspondence and an article ("They Stick Their Necks Out Weekly") on the program that appears in the G.E. Monogram (December, 1944). There is little overlap between the scripts in this series and the sound recordings in Series XI. One should especially note the script "Breeding of Nuclear Fuel," since it is one of the talks recorded.
