Source of acquisition The papers, which cover the years 1910 - 1951, were received from Mrs. Chaundy.
Creators Chaundy, Theodore William, 1889-1966, scientist and mathematician
Arrangement Chaundy kept the lectures in files with his name and address and usually a date; he classified them by a letter and subscript numeral. The alphabetical sequence has been retained, although it does not correspond with chronological order; work classified under one letter group may span several years, while incomplete sequences (e.g. 'B' or 'N') appear to indicate that some lectures are missing. Some files contained loose notes, calculations or correspondence; these have been extracted and appear as separate items immediately following the relevant file.

A photocopy of an obituary of Chaundy which appeared in a Christ Church Report 1971 has been included with the collection. An obituary notice appeared in the Times on 16 April 1966.
Note Listed by Jeannine Alton and Harriot Weiskittel
Advice on identification and technical terms was kindly given by Dr. Peter Collins, Fellow of St. Edmund Hall, Oxford.
