Description

The material in this Series was stored by John Jenkin in filing cabinets, with labelled suspension files used for high-level subjects and manila folders within these titled at a more granular level. Many of these folders primarily contain photocopies drawn from a variety of sources, often accompanied by research notes and related correspondence. The suspension files have been discarded for preservation reasons, with the labelled tabs retained with the first item from that file. Inventory item titles have been taken from John Jenkin’s own manila file titles where available, with the broader suspension file tab recorded as the title qualifier, which appears directly beneath each title.

Series 2 consists of material relating to William Henry Bragg's time in Australia, his employment at the University of Adelaide and his early research into radioactivity and the nature of X-rays.

William Henry Bragg moved to South Australia in 1886 and took up a position as Professor of Mathematics and Experimental Physics at the University of Adelaide. At Adelaide he spent many years teaching and involving himself in University life before beginning his own research. In 1907 his work on radioactivity gained him a Fellowship of the Royal Society and in 1908 he left Adelaide to become Professor of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Leeds.

This Series can loosely be divided into three main subjects:

1. University Life
2. Staff and Students
3. Early Research

1. Consists of material collected by John Jenkin relating to William Henry Bragg and the University of Adelaide. It includes contextual information on the University of Adelaide and documents relating to William Henry Bragg's appointment. It also includes material relating to Bragg's teaching and involvement with University activities and events including the design and acoustics of Elder Hall and Conservatorium, the Royal Visit to Adelaide in 1901 and his participation in a number of sports. Other material includes documents relating to William Henry Bragg's involvement with the School of Mines, later the University of South Australia, and research notes on his public lectures.

2. Consists of material relating to William Henry Bragg's staff and colleagues, including Arthur Lionel Rogers, Robert Chapman, John Percival Vissing Madsen, Douglas Mawson, and Kerr Grant. Also includes material relating to William Henry Bragg's students, in alphabetised folders, the most notable of whom are Clinton Coleridge Farr, George Eric Macdonnell Jauncey and Richard Daniel Kleeman.

3. Consists of material relating to William Henry Bragg's early research on radioactivity as well as the nature of X-rays. Also includes material relating to Richard Threlfall, Ernest Rutherford, Frederick Soddy and William Sutherland, all of whom were influential in William Henry Bragg's research. This material includes contemporary correspondence, articles and newspaper cuttings as well as retrospective articles and John Jenkin correspondence and research notes.
