|Title||Talks and lectures|
|Description||Manuscripts and correspondence relating to talks and lectures Jeans gave between 1930-1945. At this stage of his career Jeans was focussed on popularising science, and the audiences and nature of the papers here reflect this. For instance, he delivered numerous talks to the Royal Institution, including the Institution's Christmas Lectures in 1933 (titled 'Through Time and Space').|
The majority of the papers relate to Jeans' lectures and talks on astronomy, though his 1930 lecture for a BBC series, 'My Point of View', touched upon social issues and resulted in a great deal of correspondence.
The material is arranged chronologically, apart from some undated typescripts at the end of the section.
