Title: Catalogue of the papers and correspondence of; Sir John McGregor Hill FRS (b. 1921)
Reference: NCUACS 82.3.99
Description:

The material in this collection covers the period 1946-1994. It is presented in three sections.

 

Section A, Biographical, is slight. It includes biographical profiles and press cuttings, and papers relating to Hill's appointment and retirement from the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA).

 

Section B, Publications, lectures and speeches, is the main body of the collection. The bulk of the material (NCUACS 82.3.99/B.1-B.339) consists of articles, speeches and lectures given during the period 1965-1983. This covers Hill's chairmanship of the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority and the material may have been assembled in that context. At NCUACS 82.3.99/B.340-B.366 are a few later speeches and lectures (1987-1994) and a set of Hill's publications is presented at NCUACS 82.3.99/B.347-B.350.

 

Section C, Correspondence, is principally a chronological sequence, covering the period 1980-1983, of carbon copies of Hill's correspondence to ministers in the Department of Energy and to others in various organisations and institutions in Britain and aboard. During this period Hill was President of the Institute of Energy, Chairman of British Nuclear Fuels and Chairman of Amersham International plc. Kept separately by Hill were letters from Edward Health and Margaret Thatcher, who were both Prime Minister at the time of writing. There is also a chronological sequence of references and recommendations.

Administrative History:

John McGregor Hill was born in Chester on 21 February 1921. He attended Richmond County Grammar School in Surrey from 1930 to 1939. After leaving Grammar School he continued his education at King's College, London, where he obtained a 1st Class B.Sc. (Hons) in Physics. Between 1941 and 1946, Hill served in the Royal Air Force, rising to the rank of Flight Lieutenant in the Radar Branch. After leaving the Royal Air Force Hill studied for a Ph.D. in Nuclear Physics at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge, researching the life span of short-lived radio nuclei. In 1948 he was appointed Lecturer in Physics in the University of London.

 

In 1950 Hill joined the Department of Atomic Energy of the Ministry of Supply at the Windscale Works in Cumbria, marking the start of his career in atomic energy. His first task was to work with engineers involved in the commissioning of Britain's first production nuclear reactors, the Windscale Piles, built for the production of plutonium for military purposes. When the headquarters of the industrial section of the organisation moved to Risley, Cheshire, in 1954, Hill joined the production team, which at the time was trying to determine future development and industrial policies for nuclear power. As Manager of the Production Group, Hill oversaw the uranium diffusion plan at Capenhurst, the fuel manufacturing plant at Springfields, the reprocessing plant at Windscale and the power-generating reactors at Calder and Chapelcross.

 

Appointed to the Main Board of the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority (as the Department of Atomic Energy had been renamed) in 1964, Hill received rapid advancement within the organisation (Deputy Director, Technical Director, Deputy Managing Director, Director, and Managing Director) succeeding Lord Penney as Chairman of the UKAEA on 16 October 1967, a post he held until 1981. Hill also served as a member of the Advisory Council on Technology, 1968-1970.

 

In April 1971, Hill became Chairman of British Nuclear Fuels Limited, (formerly the Production Group of UKAEA), and in 1975 he succeeded Sir Charles Cunningham as Chairman of the Radiochemical Centre Ltd (later Amersham International plc). He retired as Chairman of BNFL in 1983 and Amersham International plc in 1988.

 

Among Hill's honours and awards were the Melchett Medal of the Institute of Fuel in 1974, the Sylvanus Thompson Medal of the Institute of Radiology in 1978 and the Foratom Award in 1979, for his outstanding contribution to nuclear power in Europe. Hill was elected to the Fellowships of the Institute of Physics, the Institute of Chemical Engineers, the Institution of Electrical Engineers, the Institute of Energy (President 1988) and was made a Foreign Associate of the US National Academy of Engineering in 1976. Hill was elected to the Fellowship of the Royal Society in 1981, the Fellowship of Royal Academy of Engineering in 1982 and was made a Knight Bachelor in 1969.
