Scientific correspondence: Flowers, B.H. and M., 1977-1991 (some undated)

MS. 11619/63/K.32

  • Request

Flowers, 'a promising and lively experimentalist', came to Birmingham on secondment from Harwell in 1950 for training in theoretical research. A lasting friendship developed, though in this case it was Mary who lodged with the Peierls before their marriage. The Flowers shared the Peierls's predilection for humorous light verse and celebrations. See Bird of Passage, pp. 235-237.

Mainly personal correspondence, some from Mary Flowers (not all dated) and some addressed to Genia Peierls. Includes some verse greetings.
