My Comments on This Book.

This is report number three of the AIP's National Catalogue of Sources for the History of Physics. Larry Badash produced this catalogue of all the then known letters to and from Rutherford in 1974, apart from some involving Kapitza which were regarded as politically sensitive at the time and others which were with the family. The majority of the catalogued letters are in the Rutherford College, Cambridge University Library but others are from other repositories such as the Bohr Institute, Copenhagen.

Many other repositories of Rutherford correspondence have been located since this pioneering work.
It would be appropriate to have an update leading into the centennial of Rutherford's Nobel Prize.
