Folders C.34-C.50:

Numerical problems in advanced physical chemistry by J.H. Wolfenden, R.E. Richards, and E.E. Richards, 2nd ed. Clarendon Press Oxford 1964.

Contents of a folder inscribed 'Wolfenden Problems': correspondence between J.H. Wolfenden and R.E. and E.E. Richards, 1956-1965, regarding the preparation of a second edition of Wolfenden's Numerical problems in advanced physical chemistry.

R.E. Richards had used the first edition extensively for his teaching at Oxford and, on meeting Wolfenden, had asked him to bring out an up to date second edition. Wolfenden was too busy to do all the work so R.E. and E.E. Richards were recruited as collaborators.

Folder C.34: 1948, 1956-1959. 1948 items are two letters to 'Wolf' signed 'T' (perhaps E.J. Bowen).

Folder C.35: 1960-1961.

Folder C.36: 1962 (1).

Folder C.37: 1962 (2).

Folder C.38: 1963 (1).

Folder C.39: 1963 (2).

Folder C.40: 1963 (3).

Folder C.41: 1964-1965. Includes royalty statement.

Folder C.42: 'NMR studies of the structure of ultrasonically dispersed phospholipids' by B. Sheard, M.P. Esnouf, A.R. Peacocke, and Richards.

Typescript draft and figures, Biochemical Journal editorial report, 'replies to referee's criticisms' (7pp. ms., not by Richards), 2pp. ms. notes by Richards, correspondence with Peacocke, 1969, 1971.

In 1971 the authors withdrew the paper from consideration for publication in the Biochemical Journal.

Folder C.43: Foreward to R.A. Dwek's Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) in Biochemistry, Clarendon Press Oxford, 1973. 2pp. typescript.

'Further studies of chemical shifts in the nuclear resonances of caesium ions in solution' by C. Hall, Richards and R.R. Sharp, Proc. R. Soc. A. 337 (1974).

Brief correspondence regarding referee's comments, figures, calculations.

Folder C.44: 'Critical factors in the design of sensitive high resolution NMR spectrometers' by D.I. Hoult and Richards. Proc. R. Soc. A. 344 (1975).

Brief correspondence regarding referee's comments and errors in the printed version of the paper.

Folders C.45-C.48: 'NMR imaging. Research and development in the United Kingdom', 12 December 1983.

This is a report prepared at the invitation of the Advisory Board for the Research Councils but not published. Richards states (p.2) that the report 'is a personal appreciation of the position of NMR imaging in this country, and the views expressed are entirely my own'.

Folder C.45: Copy of the report. 25pp.

Folder C.46: Ms. notes.

Folders C.47-C.48: Information from colleagues on NMR research and developments. Includes some printed material.

Folder C.49: Reviews, various dates 1969-1977.
