TitleCorrespondence - 1942 Only
DescriptionOf Blackett's extensive and varied wartime correspondence, only that for 1942 survives, though some exchanges remain with the working papers.

The correspondence below is presented alphabetically, with a brief indication of particular interest. All correspondents are listed in the general index.

Incomplete though the record is, the range of Blackett's activities at this period is well shown, and include his official service engagements, his concern to keep in touch with his department at Manchester University and to plan its future (D.144-147), and his personal assistance to various colleagues.
