Archival Adventures: Robert E. Marshak Papers, Part 1 (High Energy Physics Series)

Archival Adventures: Robert E. Marshak Papers, Part 1 (High Energy Physics Series)

It's time for an adventure! This week we're beginning a new ongoing adventure focused on archival materials about the study of high energy physics. Beginning this series, we'll use the Robert E. Marshak Papers to head back to the 1947 Shelter Island Conference on the Foundations of Quantum Mechanics and then look at the International Conference on High Energy Physics (Rochester Conference) starting with its inception in 1950. You can learn more about the collection in the finding aid here: https://ead.lib.virginia.edu/vivaxtf/view?docId=oai/lib.vt.edu/repositories/2/resources/3579.oai_ead.xml

Join our community collections archivist, Anthony Wright de Hernandez, for a livestream on Twitch! Every week we explore and discuss materials from Special Collections and University Archives covering topics including university history, NASA pioneers, architecture, science fiction, cooking, LGBTQ+ history, Black history, urban legends, and more. Recordings of previous streams are available on the Libaries' Youtube page.
