Oral history interview with Georges Allard, 1963 January 10

Part of the Archives for the History of Quantum Physics oral history collection, which includes tapes and transcripts of oral history interviews conducted with circa 100 atomic and quantum physicists. Subjects discuss their family backgrounds, how they became interested in physics, their educations, people who influenced them, their careers including social influences on the conditions of research, and the state of atomic, nuclear, and quantum physics during the period in which they worked. Discussions of scientific matters relate to work that was done between approximately 1900 and 1930, with an emphasis on the discovery and interpretations of quantum mechanics in the 1920s. Also prominently mentioned are: Jean Becquerel, Louis de Broglie, Albert Einstein, Paul Langevin, Jean Perrin, and Emile Picard., Remastered recordings and loan copies available at the American Philosophical Society., Advance notice of two business days required to use audio or video tapes., Interview conducted by Thomas S. Kuhn and T. Kahan on January 10, 1963., Interview conducted as part of the Archives for History of Quantum Physics (AHQP) project., Microfilmed for the Archives for the History of Quantum Physics project.
