Excerpt

In this book it has been my aim to hold up a mirror in which Rutherford may reveal himself, just as he was, in lectures, books, papers, speeches, portraits, letters, and casual talk.

All his books and papers, and many of his letters, were typed by his wife and it is due to Lady Rutherford's care that both the letters written to her husband and the innumerable reprints of papers sent to him have been preserved. The collection of reprints is now in the Cavendish Laboratory.

This careful collection and arrangement of material has greatly facilitated my work; I am also indebted to many friends of Rutherford for valuable help, in particular to Mr S. C. Roberts, to Professor J. Chadwick, to Professor M. L. E. Oliphant, and not least to my wife, who encouraged me at those times when the task seemed beyond my powers.

A. S. E.
