Archives for the History of Quantum Physics
Much of the AHQP is described in detail in Kuhn's Sources for History of Quantum Physics (Philadelphia: American Philosophical Society, 1967). This is the most important overview of the collection and its history (Print copy: q QC174.1 .S724, Hillman Library - General Collection and Engineering Library (G33 Benedum Hall).
It must be remembered, though, that more than half the microfilms in the AHQP were produced after this guide was compiled. Furthermore, some subcollections have their own published finding aids. Noteworthy among these are:
Available online collection guides:
The AHQP's various finding aids, including Kuhn's inventory, provide only chronological and proper name access to material. Permission to quote from or to publish documents in the AHQP must be obtained from the respective literary heirs, trustees, or deposit library.
The Herbert Feigl Papers
The original manuscripts of the Herbert Feigl Papers are housed at the University of Minnesota, which reserves all rights and must approve requests to quote from or publish material in it. The Archives of Scientific Philosophy and the Philosophisches Archiv at the University of Konstanz, Germany, possess microfilms of the entire collection. This arrangement is made possible by a cooperative agreement between the University of Pittsburgh and the Universität Konstanz, with generous support from the Minnesota Center for the Philosophy of Science.
