Burgers, J. M. (Johannes Martinus), 1895-
Oral history interview with Johannes Martinus Burgers, 1962 June 9.
Part of the Archives for the History of Quantum Physics oral history collection, which includes tapes and transcripts of oral history interviews conducted with circa 100 atomic and quantum physicists. Subjects discuss their family backgrounds, how they became interested in physics, their educations, people who influenced them, their careers including social influences on the conditions of research, and the state of atomic, nuclear, and quantum physics during the period in which they worked. Discussions of scientific matters relate to work that was done between approximately 1900 and 1930, with an emphasis on the discovery and interpretations of quantum mechanics in the 1920s. Also prominently mentioned are: Cornelis Benjamin Biezeno, Niels Henrik David Bohr, Tatiana Ehrenfest, Paul Ehrenfest, Albert Einstein, Abram Feodorovich Joffe, Heike Kammerlingh Onnes, Willem Hendrik Keesom, Hendrik Anthony Kramers, Hendrik Antoon Lorentz, Wiersma; and Teyler's Tweede Genootschap.
