Details of Supplementary catalogue of papers and correspondence of JOHN WILLIAM SUTTON PRINGLE FRS (1912-1982)
Title: Supplementary catalogue of papers and correspondence of JOHN WILLIAM SUTTON PRINGLE FRS (1912-1982)
Reference: NCUACS 21.6.90
Description:

Material additional to CSAC 117/8/86.

 

The material in this collection was assembled during 1989 and 1990 from various sources. It is supplementary to the principal collection of Pringle's papers and correspondence catalogued by the Contemporary Scientific Archives Centre (CSAC 117/8/86) now in the Bodleian Library, Oxford. The items are therefore sectionalised and numbered to follow the related material in that previous catalogue with specific cross-references where appropriate. References are also given to the memoir of Pringle by V B Wigglesworth (Biographical Memoirs of Fellows of the Royal Society, 29, 1983, 525-551).

 

Several items are a useful supplement to the earlier collection. A. 18 is correspondence with the Registrar, Oxford University, relating to the offer to Pringle of the Linacre Chair of Zoology in December 1960 and the negotiations preceding his acceptance in June 1961. Pringle's involvement in the multi-disciplinary School of Human Sciences at Oxford, documentation for which was wholly lacking in the previous collection, is now more fully recorded in items Material additional to CSAC 117/8/86

Pringle's involvement in the multi-disciplinary School of Human Sciences at Oxford, documentation for which was wholly lacking in the previous collection, is now more fully recorded in items NCUACS 21.6.90/C.185-NCUACS 21.6.90/C.197. The only 'new' item relating to publications (NCUACS 21.6.90/E.145) is an unrecorded and probably unpublished note prepared for Experientia in 1950-51. Documentation relating to Pringle's service on committees at Oxford (NCUACS 21.6.90/C.198-NCUACS 21.6.90/C.200) and for the University Grants Committee (NCUACS 21.6.90/G.29) , and a little correspondence (Section J) complete the collection.
