[1.07] A Photo Archive for the History of Nuclear Astrophysics

D. D. Clayton (Clemson University)

A web site bearing this name has been created at Clemson University. (http://photon.phys.clemson.edu/wwwpages/PhotoArchive) Selected photographs (about 250) come from the authorís personal photograph collection covering 45 years of research in nuclear astrophysics. The historiography will be described. Each photograph is accompanied by an accurate caption, including references to works being pursued at the time the photos were taken. The accuracy of the captions was itself a research effort, aided greatly by the authorís three decades of daily diaries. Featured are the authorís experiences with colleagues at Caltech (1956-67), Cambridge (1967-74), Rice University (1963-89), Heidelberg (1976-84) and Clemson University (1989-2001). Photographs may be used subject to the constraints and acknowledgements posted on the site. This entire collection has been given to the Center for the History of Physics, who will eventually also make the images available; however, old photographs are still being added. My captions may or may not be provided by CHP. Clemson University provided the time for this research project.
