Correspondence relating to the conference and publication. This was the first occasion on which Peierls gave a historical talk, on 'The glorious days of physics'. It proved very popular, was often asked for and repeated, and, as Peierls says, 'audience reaction... led to the idea of writing my memoirs', Bird of Passage, pp. 312-313. The lecture was published in the Proceedings ed. A. Zichichi 1975, and a Spanish version 'Mi vida come fisico, los dias gloriosos de la fisico', given in Mexico was published in Naturalezza, 7 (1976).
