Historical Note

The laboratory was founded as the University of California Radiation Laboratory in 1931 by Ernest Orlando Lawrence, a University of California Berkeley physicist who won the 1939 Nobel Prize in physics for his invention of the cyclotron, a circular particle accelerator that opened the door to high-energy physics. It is a United States Department of Energy National Laboratory, operated by the University of California. The name of the laboratory has evolved since its founding: Lawrence Radiation Laboratory (1931-1958), the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory (1959-1995), and currently the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (1995-present).

Edward J. Löfgren, Ph.D., physics (University of Califonia, Berkeley, 1946). Lawrence Radiation Laboratory, group leader for the electromagnetic process of separating uranium 238 (1940-1944), in charge of the Bevatron (1954-1979), director of the 200 BeV Accelerator Study Project (1964-1968), and Director of the Accelerator Division (1973-1978); Los Alamos Laboratory, group leader (1944-1945).

Scope and Contents of Collection

This collection contains the records of physicist Edward J. Löfgren and include accelerator studies, Bevatron operations and files on the administration of the Accelerator and Fusion Research Division.
