Abstract/Description: This interview was conducted as part of the Archives for the History of Quantum Physics project, 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: Max Abraham, Niels Henrik David Bohr, Paul Ehrenfest, James Franck, Fritz Haber, Mrs. T. von Harbou, Holst, Fritz Houtermans, Philipp Lenard, Gustav Mie, Max Planck, Robert Wichard Pohl, Peter Pringsheim, Heinrich Rubens, K. Schmidt, Schuetze, Adolf Smekal, Arnold Sommerfeld, John Sealy Edward Townsend, Wilhelm Westphal; Berlin Technische Hochschule, Universität Berlin, Universität Göttingen, University of Halle, Universität Munich, Philips Laboratories (Eindhoven), and Siemens (A. G.).
