Note By Jeannine Alton, Harriot Weiskittel and Julia Latham-Jackson
As will be clear from the foregoing, the essential debt is owed to G.K. Batchelor. The assembling, ordering and identification of many of the items in the collection are primarily due to his expert knowledge, and his personal affection for Taylor.
Thanks are also due to those correspondents who made available copies or originals of letters from Taylor which appear in Section D.

These surviving records are variable - even capricious - in content and time-span, for reasons inherent in Taylor's temperament, interests and methods of work. For most of his career he held research posts, especially the Yarrow Research Professorship of the Royal Society, to which he was appointed in 1923; he was thus almost wholly absolved from routine teaching, administrative, departmental or institutional tasks, and free to pursue whatever research suggested itself, or was suggested to him. He had the help of his technician, Walter Thompson, and a room in the Cavendish Laboratory, originally made available by Rutherford, who described Taylor as being 'paid provided he does no work'. This lack of formal establishment obligations, though ideal for Taylor's research, meant that he had no office or secretarial help. He worked with rough notes and drawings, often on any piece of paper that came to hand; even when he used a notebook of more conventional kind, the content is somewhat heterogeneous and lacks dates or headings (see CSAC 67/5/79/B.2, CSAC 67/5/79/B.3, for examples). Several of the official committee reports in Section C originally took the form of personal letters which were then typed out in a more acceptable official style (see, for example, CSAC 67/5/79/C.37, CSAC 67/5/79/C.41, CSAC 67/5/79/C.42, CSAC 67/5/79/C.45, CSAC 67/5/79/C.49, CSAC 67/5/79/C.50). Conversely, several letters in Section D are statements of research in progress, and were typed up and used as such by the recipients. Furthermore, it should be remembered that Taylor did much work at home at 'Farmfield', whence most of the surviving letters are addressed.
The general consequences of these conditions of work are often mentioned in biographical articles about Taylor, and are best summarised by Batchelor in his Memoir (Biographical Memoirs of Fellows of the Royal Society, 22, 1976), p.597
Perhaps I should explain here that, so far as I know, at no time in his life did Taylor employ a secretary or have his letters typed. The documentary evidence of what he did throughout his life consists wholly of incoming letters and papers (including, of course, his own in published form), and since his filing system was rudimentary, and dependent more on his wife's wish to contain the papers in one room than on his need to find something later, I am sure there are some gaps. He did make an effort to retain one copy of every published paper in a set of boxes, but typed or duplicated reports, by him or by someone else, often remained in the envelopes in which they were delivered, and incoming letters were collected in large brown envelopes marked only with the year. Periodically Stephanie had a clearing-up operation which led to some documents being thrown out in order to make room for new ones, and few of the letters and documents that come in before about 1960 have survived.
The result is that very little now survives by way of notebooks, experimental records or laboratory observations to document Taylor's scientific research (see Section B). In order to supplement these scanty resources, Batchelor assembled from some of Taylor's correspondents copies of letters which might permit the reconstruction of a collaborative piece of research, joint publication or substantial scientific discussion. Successful examples of this enterprise are enumerated in the introduction to Section D and itemised in the relevant entries. Because of the paucity of surviving material by Taylor himself, a list of all items in that Section which include his letters or draft replies to correspondents is also given in the introduction to Section D. In addition, Batchelor assembled many of the reports and committee papers by Taylor, and these, together with other drafts and papers found in the collection, constitute the considerable body of unpublished work brought together in Section C.
A word may be said here about Taylor's handwriting. Although he wrote a fairly standard legible hand until about 1913 (see the manuscript of the Adams Prize Essay in CSAC 67/5/79/C.2), the 'Scotia' notebook of the same year (see CSAC 67/5/79/B.1) is in the characteristic script, resembling the waves and eddies it often describes, of most of his subsequent letters and papers. It has certain similarities with his mother's hand, especially in her later years, and is not easy to read. Most of the recipients of his letters had typed copies made.
The personal material in Section A includes documents relating to a little known episode in 1911 when Taylor was obliged to spend several months in a sanatorium with a lung infection (see CSAC 67/5/79/A.17 - CSAC 67/5/79/A.23), and a considerable amount of information relating to Taylor's family, and particularly to the Boole connection. Taylor's mother, Margaret, was the second of the five daughters of George Boole, and Taylor both inherited and contributed to a sense of family continuity (see especially CSAC 67/5/79/A.79 - CSAC 67/5/79/A.135 and introductory note). The numerous photographs in CSAC 67/5/79/E.1 - CSAC 67/5/79/E.15 are a useful additional record of Taylor's family, career, travels and interests.
Probably the most widely known of Taylor's achievements is the CQR anchor. Material relating to this can be found in CSAC 67/5/79/A.157, CSAC 67/5/79/A.160, CSAC 67/5/79/B.6, CSAC 67/5/79/C.22, CSAC 67/5/79/C.23, CSAC 67/5/79/C.79, CSAC 67/5/79/D.26, CSAC 67/5/79/D.63, CSAC 67/5/79/E.14.

He became, in the course of time, holder of documents concerning various family estates on the death of relations (CSAC 67/5/79/A.117-CSAC 67/5/79/A.122) and contributed to various celebrations of Boole which occurred during his own lifetime (CSAC 67/5/79/A.107-CSAC 67/5/79/A.113, CSAC 67/5/79/E.17). The many letters from nephews and nieces of varying degrees, and of more remote cousinage (esp. CSAC 67/5/79/A.100, CSAC 67/5/79/A.103, CSAC 67/5/79/A.104, CSAC 67/5/79/A.123-CSAC 67/5/79/A.134) indicate his wish to keep in touch with his family, and the mutual affection and understanding felt by and for people of very different generations and background.

Carmelita Hinton
Carmelita (née Chase) was the widow of Sebastian Hinton, son of Mary Boole. She was thus a cousin by marriage to Taylor and his close contemporary (b. 1890).
The 1937 letter is addressed from Putney, Vermont, where Mrs. Hinton ran a school; others are from her Pennsylvania home, but many are from various addresses in China which she frequently visited, and always admired. Her son William wrote 'Fanshen' on land reform in China, and her daughter Joan settled there. The impact of Chinese culture and ideas on an idealistic American family is well illustrated in these letters.
There is a letter from Taylor dated 7 May 1969 in the sequence, and letters from other members of the family.

Personal correspondence  CSAC 67.5.79/A.135-A.174  [n.d.]

Most of the letters date from c.1966-74, though a few are of earlier date. Their survival is due to random chance.
Much of the correspondence, though relatively trivial, is not without interest. It shows Taylor's constant plans for travel and activity, the continuing invitations and social links, the lifelong affection in which he was held, and - by implication - his own promptness and lightness of touch in maintaining his own side of the correspondence. Because Taylor did not keep routine copies of his letters, however, the items below consist of incoming letters only, some of them bearing a ms. note 'ans.' indicating that a reply had been made.
The material is presented alphabetically, with dates and a brief indication of any information of particular biographical or historical interest.
Shorter exchanges are grouped together in the folders; more substantial correspondence has been placed in individual folders. The names of all identified correspondents appear in the Index of Correspondents.

Mabel Lapthorn studied art under Taylor's father. Her portrait drawing of Taylor hung in his room at 'Farmfield' (a copy is in E.5). There seems to have been a strong attachment between them in early years, and Miss Lapthorn remained a faithful and assiduous correspondent, though it will be seen that only a small proportion of her letters survives.

McKerrow, G. 1933 (one letter), 1962-75
George McKerrow had collaborated with Taylor and Farren in The 'CQR' Anchor company, in which he was mainly responsible for manufacture and marketing. He was also a keen sailor, and on retirement from Metropolitan-Vickers he settled at Glencaird and maintained a regular correspondence with Taylor whom he addressed as 'Skipper'. His own letters are signed 'Jock'. It is clear that Taylor kept up the correspondence on his side, but none of his letters are preserved.
The 1933 letter discusses the manufacture and testing of the 'CQR' Anchor, and there are references to this and related matters passim in the later correspondence.

O'Malley, M. 1924-75
Lady O'Malley published extensively under the name Ann Bridge. Her letters to Taylor are addressed 'My dear Skipper' and signed 'Mary Anne'.
The O'Malleys had been on the 1924 cruise in 'Frolic' (see CSAC 67/5/79/A.1) and Mrs. (later Lady) O'Malley remained a lifelong friend of Taylor. Sir Owen served at the British Legation, Peking, and letters of 1926 contain descriptions of life and travel in China.
Included also is a poem (1924) in praise of Taylor's Royal Society Yarrow Research Professorship; the last stanza runs:
And last I praise the Frolic
That academic boat
Her lockers alcoholic
The crews she keeps afloat
Worthy, though comically manned
For ever may she be
Of G, Sir Alfred Yarrow and The Royal Society
There is also a letter, 1974, from Jane O'Malley about the death of her parents.

The paucity of material in this Section is regretted. It derives in part from Taylor's idiosyncratic working methods which led him to make random jottings on any piece of paper that came to hand; the folder in B.3 is characteristic, and many of the letters, committee papers and other documents in the collection bear notes, drawings and calculations of this kind. Even so, it is probable that many other notebooks have not survived.

'Wet and drainage system for paper machines'.


Related information: A complete set of Taylor's published papers 1909-73 is held in the Library of Trinity College, Cambridge.

These consist of reports for government and advisory committees, drafts and typescripts for talks, addresses and papers, etc., presented chronologically. Some are photocopies obtained by G.K. Batchelor, and all are typescript unless otherwise indicated. When the item is accompanied by correspondence, this is noted in the entry and indexed.
The majority of these papers deal only with scientific research and problems, but a few of the later addresses include reminiscences and biographical material of historical interest.
Material published in The Scientific Papers of Sir Geoffrey Taylor, ed. G.K. Batchelor, IV Vol., C.U.P., is indicated in the form (SP....). With these exceptions, and any others noted in the entries, the items in this Section are unpublished.
A photocopy of the list of publications is reproduced by permission from Batchelor, Memoir, on pp.74 - 83.

'The action of crystal rectifiers'.
Autograph ms., pages numbered 3-41, with a note by G.K. Batchelor, 'Found in G.I's garage in a water-stained folder, July 1976'.
Although the pagination begins p.3, the paper begins 'Some months ago Sir J.J. Thomson suggested to me to try and find some explanation of the action of crystal rectifiers, and the experiments described in this paper are the results of this suggestion'. It seems therefore that the missing pages 1 and 2 did not include the substance of the paper.
Also included is correspondence re the paper between G.K. Batchelor and A.B. Pippard, 1976.

'On making holes in a sheet of fluid'.
Ms. of a summary of the paper Taylor intended to present at the 13th International Congress of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics in Moscow in September 1972. The work was published in a joint paper with D.H. Michael (J.Fluid Mech., 58, 1973, pp.625-39), who presented it at the Moscow Congress on behalf of Taylor.
The ms., and the accompanying 3 pp. of laboratory observations dated 16 March 1972, are in Taylor's hand, and there is a ms. note of background information by Batchelor on the front page.


The material is presented alphabetically, with dates and a brief indication of any information of particular interest.
Taylor's undimmed scientific reputation, the high respect he enjoyed, and the eagerness with which younger scientists continued to seek and accept his advice, emerge with remarkable clarity from the letters, most of which date from the later period of his life.
As with the personal correspondence in Section A, only incoming letters usually survive. Professor G.K. Batchelor was, however, able to obtain originals or photocopies of Taylor's letters from some of his correspondents, and thus reconstruct a relatively complete sequence. Examples of this can be found at CSAC 67/5/79/D.7, CSAC 67/5/79/D.13, CSAC 67/5/79/D.29, CSAC 67/5/79/D.43-D.46, CSAC 67/5/79/D.52, CSAC 67/5/79/D.60, CSAC 67/5/79/D.64, CSAC 67/5/79/D.65, CSAC 67/5/79/D.71, D.87.
Apart from these more substantial exchanges, some ms. drafts or copies of Taylor's replies to individual correspondents also survive. They are noted in the relevant entries. A full list is appended below for ease of reference.

Ekman, V.W.
Ekman was a Swedish meteorologist whose work in 1905 on turbulent flow had partly anticipated Taylor's papers on eddy motion published in 1914 and 1915. Taylor had not known of Ekman's work until 'some years later' than his own papers, and Ekman for his part remained unaware of Taylor's 'independent solution of the problem of gradient currents (1915)... which has important advantages as compared to my own previous solution'. After a meeting at a conference in Zurich, Ekman initiated correspondence with Taylor on differences in their solutions; the letters run May-November 1927, Taylor's being ms. drafts, some with tentative dating by G.K. Batchelor.

Jasper Mardon, who had known Taylor in Cambridge, worked for various paper and pulp manufacturing firms in Canada and USA and used Taylor as a consultant. The correspondence deals with miscellaneous problems on which Taylor was consulted, including related reports and calculations and patents arising. The letters sent from firms' addresses are all dated, but some of Mardon's ms. letters from his private houses are undated and are assigned an approximate place in the sequence based on their content. Very few of Taylor's letters survive though it is clear that he was a punctual correspondent when engaged on a project.

Rothschild, N.M.V.
The correspondence 1950-51 consists of photocopies of Taylor's letters to Rothschild, kindly made available by him. It relates to Taylor's study of the swimming of microscopic organisms and his papers on the subject. Though this work had its immediate origin in an enquiry from Rothschild about the movement of spermatozoa, Taylor says in his letter of 24 April 1951: 'I had thought about this problem long before you mentioned it in connection with your work. Bidder used to write to me about it'. George Parker Bidder (1863-1953) was a marine biologist, who lectured at Cambridge and had dining rights at Trinity between the wars.

Tipper, Constance F.
(Née Elam)
Constance Elam, working at the Royal School of Mines, 'inspired' Taylor's interest in studying the deformation of crystalline materials, and collaborated with him in various studies on the subject, and on the Bakerian Lecture of the Royal Society in 1923.
The early correspondence refers to these collaborative studies and papers; the letters (all from the Royal School of Mines) give the date of the month, but not the year and are tentatively assigned to 1924 and 1927. The letter of 'November 9th' (?1924) describes her tough interrogation at a Royal Society meeting and sends 'Many thanks for standing up for me at the R.S. I really felt horribly squashed'.
The letters 1961-75 are mainly personal, with reminiscences and recollections, and include arrangements for a commemorative dinner of the Royal Society Dining Club on 14 June 1973, 50 years after the Bakerian Lecture by Taylor and Elam. Dr. Tipper was present, but Taylor's health prevented him from attending.

Taylor Day' by Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Stanford University, in honour of Taylor's 85th birthday, etc.
Correspondence January-April 1971 refers to the novel A Random State by Thomas McMahon, which Van Dyke drew to Taylor's attention as conveying misleading but identifiable pictures of Taylor and other distinguished scientists who worked at Los Alamos on aspects of the atomic bomb project. Taylor complained to the publishers of the English edition (Macmillan) and received apologies from them and from the author.

Misc. correspondence on committees and consultancies.
Includes: Taylor's resignation from Undex Panel [Underwater explosions], Royal Naval Scientific Service, 1964.
In his letter accepting Taylor's resignation, R.H. Purcell, Chairman of the Undex Panel, writes:
'I am very sorry indeed to hear you find it necessary to resign from the Undex Panel and Sub-Panel. It is with much hesitation that I acknowledge your official severance from Undex.
'You were the fountain head in so many ways of the big advances made in the field of underwater explosions since 1939. Your papers on shock wave theory and on the damage processes led to important advances; also your paper on the vertical motion of the bubble was the foundation of bubble theory. In addition, in the early days of Undex you inspired people like Penney, Temperley, Fox and Bryant (to name only a few) who in turn made their contributions. In every respect your guidance on both Undex Panels has been of immense value.'
There is a similar letter from A.N. Harrison, Director of Naval Construction.
