Cunningham, Ebenezer.
Oral history interview with Ebenezer Cunningham, 1963 June 19.
Part of the Archives for the History of Quantum Physics oral history collection, which includes tapes and transcripts of oral history interviews conducted with ca. 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: Charles Glover Barkla, Harry Bateman, John D. Cockcroft, Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac, Albert Einstein, James Jeans, Joseph Larmor, Robert Andrews Millikan, John Joseph Thomson; University of Cambridge, and University of London.
