Street, Jabez Curry, 1906-
Oral history interview with Jabez Street, 1976 November 22.
This is one of a number of interviews that Katherine Sopka conducted with Harvard physics faculty regarding the history of the Harvard Department of Physics. Street joined the Harvard physics faculty in 1932. The primary themes are the department and his cosmic ray research in the 1930s. Street describes his decision to leave the Bartol Research Foundation in Swarthmore, PA; the salary that Harvard offered; other faculty members, especially Theodore Lyman; conditions in the Physics Department; and the courses that were offered. In the second half of the interview, he focuses on a detailed description of his cosmic ray research and of the colleagues and graduate students who worked with him.
