|Letter from Patrick Maynard Stuart Blackett, Ministry of Supply, Savoy Hill House, London to Sir Alfred Charles Glyn Egerton
|29 November 1940
|Letter enclosed with four short papers concerning uranium fission by Hans von Halban and Lew Kowarski written in April and given to Blackett by Halban in the summer, with the request that they be held at the Royal Society until such time as 'conditions allow ' them to be published. The authors of the papers are keen that the papers be officially deposited in order to establish the primacy of their research with Jean Frédéric Joliot-Curie on the subject of nuclear fission and would ultimately like them published with the original dates.
|Letter originally enclosed with papers MS/850/1/1-4.
