Clifford G. Shull Collection



Series II: New York University, c. 1938-1996 [c. 1938-1941]. Papers concerning Professor Shull's graduate work at New York University are housed in Box 1 and Oversize Box 22 and are 0.5 linear feet in length. The material is arranged chronologically. The bulk of the material from c. 1938-1941 is focused on his coursework and includes class notes and laboratory experiment reports. Lantern slides of the graphic material from his doctoral dissertation are included, as well as the 1941 commencement program for the university. The remainder of the material deals with an informal reunion of his fellow physics graduate students in 1978, an invited speech to the physics department in 1987, and an honorary doctorate that helped to celebrate his receipt of the Nobel Prize. A photograph of the honorees at the 1995 New York University Commencement shows Shull with Kitty Carlisle Hart, Neil Diamond, Henry-Louis Gates, Jr., and Sidney Poitier.
