Mellon's University Libraries are
pleased to announce electronic access to portions of the research and
papers of Nobel Laureate Clifford Glenwood Shull.
Dr. Shull’s career
spanned some of the most pivotal moments in nuclear physics, including an
invitation to work on the Manhattan project (which he had to decline) and
post-war Atoms for Peace programs. The Clifford Glenwood Shull Collection
encompasses the career of a prominent nuclear physicist who was not only a
major researcher in his field, but also dedicated his career to the
education and training of talented younger physicists.
A generous grant
from the family of Dr. Shull has allowed the University Libraries to scan
the Shull papers and make them available online. The University Libraries
are grateful to the Shull family for their support of our digital archives
