An account of CAC's scientific achievements, particularly in relation to molecular structure and bonding, is given in the Memoir by S.L. Altmann and E.J. Bowen FRS (Biographical Memoirs of Fellows of the Royal Society, 20, 1974, 73-134) to which reference should be made and a copy of which is included in CSAC 60.4.78/A.14.2. Mention is made there also of his 'many-sided' life, but only a study of the manuscript collection is likely to convey the actual work-load he undertook or the charge of energy and dedication which he brought to it. Similarly, his 'legendary' correspondence is referred to in several published tributes, as is the concluding episode when, learning that his illness was terminal, he signed eighty letters, many of which he typed himself, in the three days before his death to leave his life in order; but it is only when these letters take their place in the folders at the end of a lifetime's correspondence and friendship, or to close a newly-projected line of research, that their poignancy is realised.
From his first academic appointment at Dundee in 1938, CAC attached the greatest importance to fostering or creating research schools, and as his international reputation grew his Summer Schools, Rencontres and other meetings developed into increasingly major undertakings of widely-attended renown, while he was under constant pressure to accept research students and colleagues on sabbatical from all over the world. His successive departments were prolific in publications and in students who continued to spread his methods and influence. The care he showed for them extended to material details of housing, schooling, and finance as well as to supervision of research and subsequent career. The paternalism of the guidance which he gave reflects the 'family' atmosphere he deliberately created through informal coffee gatherings, Christmas parties, summer picnics, reunions, anniversary celebrations and similar activities designed to foster a sense of community.
This 'group' activity almost certainly derives from his particular pursuit of the religious life, and can already be seen strongly at work in CAC's years at Cambridge 1928 - 38, in which he organised meetings, Sunday schools, summer camps, fellowship sessions and the like for friends from city, country and university circles. From the same years also date his pacifism (which he put into practice in the Second World War) and his many humanitarian interests such as care for the unemployed or the refugees of the 1930s. The extent to which these concerns continued and proliferated in later years can be seen in the collection, though it is less easy to realise at first sight now deliberately he mingled 'science' and 'religion' in his life and how interfused they are in all his dealings.
It might seem from the above that CAC was overly idealistic; but this is not the case. Though he was besieged by calls to lend his time, his name or his support to countless causes, many seemingly worthy, he by no means accepted them all; the many letters in which he explains his decision to decline such appeals are carefully reasoned, kind and helpful, but illuminating in their revelation of his sharp eye for ill-conceived, specious or uncandid proposals. Even so, he was prodigal in the causes he undertook and the energy he expended; the unpublished talks, sermons and contributions in the collection would, if brought together, double the official bibliography of 444 items. Major writing or lecturing commitments were preceded by a culling of material - quotations, press-cuttings, statistics, etc., many annotated - which has its own interest in providing a tour d'horizon of a topic at a particular time.
The working papers, calculations and correspondence, particularly in Section B, help to provide a picture of the development of theoretical chemistry as a subject of scientific research and as an academic discipline with which CAC was closely involved from about 1930 until his death in 1974. CAC was himself aware also of the importance of lecture notes and drafts as a source of historical information on teaching methods, curriculum development and the spread of new ideas from the frontiers of research through the various strata of the education system; hence his preservation of his notes taken as an undergraduate and graduate at Cambridge University (A.19.8) and his retention and updating of his own lectures and talks.
In many respects, the correspondence remains the feature of the most lasting interest. The range and number of CAC's correspondents may indeed be guessed from a glance at the general index, but the brobdignagian size and disparate content of his daily postbag can best be gauged from the folders of 'shorter' exchanges where the random chance of alphabetical order has thrown together correspondence of every level of discourse and opinion. CAC's replies never cease to astonish, while being instantly recognisable. It could truly be said that he never wrote a routine letter. His distinctive style, present from the earliest years, rests on a syntax designed to convey the quality of the speaking voice; it reflects an unwearied patience, integrity and unfailing concern with the welfare of his interlocutors, be they eminent colleagues, members of a congregation or unknown persons from the general public. He touched countless lives, and never without effect.
Titles or descriptions in inverted commas are those which appear on the folders or documents, either in CAC's hand or in those of Mrs. Coulson and her advisers who looked through the material after his death.
The documents are too numerous to be individually itemised or calendared, but an account of the contents of each folder is given which it is hoped will suffice to furnish adequate guidance to its substance.
Publications which are listed in the Bibliography of the Royal Society Memoir by S.L. Altmann and E.J. Bowen are referred to in the form R.S. ... placed at the end of the relevant entry or entries.
The only other abbreviation used in CAC, which Coulson himself always employed when referring in the third person to his own writings or activities.
Two Sections of the collection, C and G, are devoted entirely to correspondence. Each is further sub-divided as follows:
Boxes CSAC 60.4.78/C.1 - CSAC 60.4.78/C.22 and CSAC 60.4.78/G.1 - CSAC 60.4.78/G.21: individually named folders of correspondents with whom CAC had frequent and extensive exchanges and relations; these folders are all listed, dated and indexed. See introductory note on pp.134-135, 242.
Boxes CSAC 60.4.78/C.23 - CSAC 60.4.78/C.38: 'miscellaneous folders' of shorter correspondence in which more than one correspondent is included; these folders are listed and indexed. See introductory note on p.154.
Boxes CSAC 60.4.78/C.39 - CSAC 60.4.78/C.44: brief exchanges of letters, scientific and personal, not indexed.
All other Sections also contain correspondence, much of it extensive, or of interest. This has been noted in the handlist, and the names of the correspondents appear in the general index.
From about 1930, CAC almost always typed his letters and kept carbon copies. Many of these copies, in all Sections of the collection, were made on the backs of incoming letters, invitations, drafts and the like. Although many of these are of interest in themselves, it has not been possible to make a note of such cases or to index the individuals or organisations concerned.
The catalogue of the Coulson papers has been a collective labour and we are very grateful to the following individuals:
to Mrs. E. Coulson, Miss R. Schwerdt, Dr. R.B. Mallion, Dr. W.E. Duncanson and Dr. S.L. Altmann for their initial work in ordering the papers and for information and advice during the later stages of preparing the handlist for publication;
to the Department of Western Manuscripts of the Bodleian Library for making available space in the stack in which to work on the collection and for advice on its arrangements and presentation;
to Mrs. M.M. Edwards for careful and accurate typing, and immense patience with successive drafts and emendations of the handlist."

Note. Manuscripts, letters, working papers and a collection of minor works have been deposited at the Bodleian Library, Oxford.
|Administrative / biographical background:||
The papers deal primarily with CAC's own career from about 1930 to his death in 1974, but include some earlier material relating to the Coulson family, especially Alfred Coulson, CAC's father (earliest date 1905); there is also reference to posthumously-published scientific papers by CAC, to obituaries and tributes, and to a collection of his lectures scheduled for publication in 1978.
Before handing on the collection, Mrs. Coulson, assisted by Miss R. Schwerdt (CAC's secretary), Dr. W.E. Duncanson and other advisers, had perused the papers and placed them in numbered folders and boxes; the initials 'RS' and 'WED' appear on many of the folders. Material considered to be sensitive was removed and transferred by Mrs. Coulson as a separate collection to the Bodleian Library, where it will remain under restriction until 2004. Correspondence was segregated into separate sections (C and G, see notes on pp.134-135, 242) according to the degree of scientific detail it contained, and a full list of CAC's book reviews was compiled by Mrs. Coulson (Box CSAC 60.4.78/D.9); the entries for Boxes CSAC 60.4.78/B.28 - CSAC 60.4.78/B.42 are based on notes made by Dr. R.B. Mallion, Mrs. Coulson and others. We are very pleased to acknowledge this invaluable work initially done before processing began.
The collection, when received, was therefore already partly sorted, numbered and boxed, and this seriously curtailed the degree of flexibility of treatment which it could subsequently bear. Material which might have been re-assembled by subject, chronological or alphabetical order could not be re-assigned because boxes were full and index numbers already allocated. Folders, some exceedingly bulky and heterogeneous in content, could not be split into more manageable units without creating a reference system so complex as to be unproductive. Furthermore, new material, which continued to be received from time to time throughout the processing period, could not be slotted into its logical place for lack of room and could only be attached at the end of a section. Sections A and B have suffered particularly from these addenda; the anomalies which have ensued, though greatly regretted, were inevitable, and every effort has been made to supply cross-referencing and links between items.
