My Comments on This Book.
This book is the proceedings of the Rutherford Jubilee Conference held at the University of Manchester in September of 1961 to mark the 50th anniversary of the Rutherford scattering and the discovery of the atomic nucleus. Several of his Manchester colleagues reminisce about his work and his  discoveries at Manchester; including Ernest Marsden, Niels Bohr, Charles Darwin and Edward Andrade. Previous Rutherford Memorial Lectures by Robinson, Russell, Blackett and Bohr are also reproduced, as are the important papers published by Rutherford and his co-workers at Manchester, including Moseley and Geiger, and a listing of all of Rutherford's publications. A listing of all papers published from the physics lab at Manchester during the period 1907-1919 gives information not only as to what else was going on in the lab but also the modesty of Rutherford, who often never put his name on papers covering researches which he had initiated.

This is a very valuable source of information for the Manchester period of Rutherford's life and work. .
