Scope and content

This series is divided into three sub-series: a) general correspondence, primarily incoming but with including some copies of responses, arranged chronologically and covering the years 1963-2004; b) carbon copies of “out” correspondence (1971-1988) with some additional documentation, arranged chronologically; and c) correspondence by author, arranged alphabetically. A few of the responses in the first sub-series are duplicated in the “out” correspondence. The first two sub-series are inter-related and the correspondence in all three sub-series ranges widely over Professor Guillet’s activities as a professor and his own experimental and development work. There are also a few letters on personal matters scattered throughout the first sub-series.

The correspondence arranged by author covers the years 1976 to 2002 and the seven correspondents – Bruce Balcom, Robert W. Billingsley, William Robert Bruce, Ramin Farnood, Joachim Klein, Michiel Kruijff, and Alastair North, range from colleagues and visiting professors to scientists involved with Professor Guillet’s research projects.
