Education and early career

James Guillet registered in mathematics and physics in the Bachelor of Arts program at Victoria College in the autumn of 1944. In second year he switched to honours physics and chemistry, graduating in 1948. In addition to his core honours courses, he took religious knowledge for his first two years, followed by Greek and Roman history. His interest in the latter continued after his graduation with an extra course in 1948-1949. English, French and German (reading courses in French and German his last two years) and physical training rounded out his curriculum. The only extra-curricular activity documented in this series is the Alpha Phi chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon Fraternity.

The series begins with notebooks containing lectures, laboratory experiments and notes for his undergraduate courses. Guillet kept detailed and careful notes, recording the names of his lecturers, some of whose personal papers have not survived. In this category are Leopold Infeld and B.A. Griffiths (Applied Mathematics); Andrew Gordon and F. R. Lorriman (Chemistry); D. A.. F. Robinson, M. E. G. Waddell, and W. J. Webber (Mathematics); D. S. Ainslee, Colin Barnes and M. F. Crawford (Physics); and W. T. Brown (Religious knowledge/Greek and Roman history). Professors, whose personal papers are in the University Archives, include George F Wright (Chemistry) and Elizabeth Allin and John Satterley (Physics).

The course notes are followed by a file on Delta Kappa Epsilon Fraternity and another of correspondence with camera suppliers while a research chemist with Eastman Kodak in Tennessee.

In 1953 Guillet entered Cambridge University from which he received his doctorate in 1955. This series contains notebooks relating to laboratory projects carried out while studying under R. G. W. Norrish. The series ends with files on a conference Guillet gave on his research in France in 1954, a seminar at Vanderbilt University (1958), and employment at Eastman Kodak in Tennessee in 1959.
