Kemble, Edwin C. (Edwin Crawford). 1889-
Oral history interview with Edwin C. Kemble, 1962 May 11 to 1963 October 2.
This interview was conducted as part of the Archives for the History of Quantum Physics project, 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: Raymond Thayer Birge, George D. Birkhoff, Gregory Breit, Percy Williams Bridgman, J. Brinsmaid, Arthur Compton, William Duane, Paul Ehrenfest, Hendrik Anthony Kramers, Victor Fritz Lenzen, Henry Margenau, Dayton C. Miller, Robert Andrews Millikan, Thomas Harris Osgood, Lee Page, George Washington Pierce, Wallace Clement Sabine, F. A. Saunders, John Clarke Slater, Arthur Gordon Webster; Carnegie Institute of Technology, University of Chicago, Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Molecular Spectrum Committee, and National Research Council.
