TitleVisits and Conferences
DescriptionThe material is presented chronologically.

It includes correspondence, travel arrangements, manuscripts or notes for lectures, papers, broadcasts, publications etc

This Section contains all surviving records of Blackett's attendance at international conferences, and of his foreign tours (see G.23-31 for visits to India), though it is clear that many other journeys were made and have left no documental evidence.

G.85-91 is of interest in recording Blackett's view of the episode in 1945 when he and other eminent British scientists were refused visas to visit Russia.

The majority of the visits referred to in this Section were concerned with international co-operation, aid to developing countries, disarmament, etc.
