The Clifford G. Shull Papers are housed in 21 archival boxes and are arranged into ten series. Series have been designated for Carnegie Tech, New York University, Oak Ridge, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Nobel Prize and other awards, correspondence, publications, awards, video tapes, and miscellaneous. These papers include experimental data, drafts of publications, reprints of publications, correspondence, newspaper clippings, photographs, slides, transparencies, and other sundry items. Unique to this collection is information pertaining to the work Shull did with Wollan and others as part of “Atoms for Peace,” a government initiative to find peaceful uses for nuclear technology. The collection provides an insider’s view of neutron research and a very good example of an active experimental research program that achieved success over many years. High school teachers may find inspirational examples of the use of algebra, geometry, and trigonometry in Professor Shull’s research notes.

The Emerson Pugh Papers are housed in four archival boxes and arranged into five series. Series have been designated for biographical information, correspondence, research, security, and student theses. Generally, these papers include professional correspondence, research reports, article reprints from professional journals, and student theses. The majority of the collection consists of regular reports written by Pugh about his ballistics research under various government contracts from 1946-1965. Copies of Pugh's autobiography are the only personal material in the collection. They provide the only information about Pugh's teaching experiences and the operation of the broader Carnegie Mellon University physics department in this collection.
