The Legacy of Lord Rayleigh

 

Further Information

Recorded: 29 May 2014

Speaker: Edward Davis

Since retirement, Professor Davis has been working with the present Lord Rayleigh - the Third Baron's great-grandson - on preserving and promoting the laboratories used by his forebears - laboratories that are still extant at the family seat and remain essentially unaltered. This has involved cataloguing many hundreds of items of equipment and relating them to the research described in over 600 papers published by the Third Baron.
