Slater, John C, (John Clarke), 1900-1976.
Oral history interview with John Clarke Slater, 1963 October 3 and 8.
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 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: George D. Birkhoff, Niels Henrik David Bohr, Percy Williams Bridgman, Julian Lowell Coolidge, Ebenezer Cunningham, Charles Galton Darwin, Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac, Ralph Fowler, P. Franklin, Werner Heisenberg, Friedrich Hund, Egil Hylleraas, Edwin Crawford Kemble, Hendrik Anthony Kramers, Alfred Land,̌ Robert Sanderson Mulliken, Norton, Wolfgang Pauli, Linus Pauling, George Washington Pierce, Erwin Schrd̲inger, Arnold Sommerfeld, M. Vallarta, John Hasbrouck Van Vleck, Norbert Wiener; Harvard University, Harvard University Physics Conferences, Kbeh avns Universitet, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Universitt̃ Leipzig, University of Cambridge, and University of Rochester.
