This exhibit was constructed by the Center for History of Physics with support from the American Institute of Physics (AIP) and the Friends of the Center.

Based on a unit prepared in 1976 by Joan N. Warnow (later Joan Blewett) with Lillian Hoddeson. Mounted on the Web 2007 by Spencer Weart with Rick Harrigan and Tom Connell.

Schrieffer's recollections are from interviews conducted in 1974 and 1976 by Warnow and Robert M. Williams, in the AIP's Niels Bohr Library & Archives.
