Subseries A. Microfilm
This subseries contains six reels of microfilm of Goudsmit's papers, including three reels of film of his early "Writers' files" from 1951-1968, the originals of which probably no longer exist. Unfortunately these three reels are very difficult to read.
Subseries B. Slides
Contains approximately one hundred slides on various subjects including Alsos related images, American Physical Society editorial staff, and images for Goudsmit's 1976 Max Planck lectures. Many images were identified by Jonothan Logan in 1977 and captions by him accompany the slides.
Subseries C. Negatives, motion picture footage, and a filmstrip
This subseries includes 62 rolls of negatives, a few miscellaneous flat negatives, and some strips of 35mm negatives. Many were not labeled. A few were wrapped in paper with descriptive notes. Copies of those notes are in a folder in the box with the negatives; the notes are numbered and the corresponding numbers are written on the film wrappers. Most of the images are experimental data. Three rolls have non-experimental images such as people and scenery; they are labeled: "Harvard 1941," "Geneva 195?" and "Holland '45 (Alsos)." The strip negatives are Alsos-related images. There is also motion picture footage of Franklin Roosevelt and an unidentified filmstrip.
Subseries D. Photographs
Over 300 photographs, all of which are experimental data. Some are labeled.
Subseries E. Audio tapes
Four miscellaneous tapes.
Subseries F. Lantern slides
Contains 26 3½" x 4" slides. 18 are on mass spectrometer history and include images of charts and equipment. Eight slides are chemical work on mass spectroscopy.
