Not long ago I came across this group of images in a manuscript collection. (I suspect Joseph Davies took them.) Happily, they’re all labeled and I found them arresting enough to scan them. But although I know what they are, I don’t really know what they mean. If you know what I mean. I have no context. This first one is called “Chemistry Storage Case, 1952.”
This next one is “Chemistry Lab Equipment, 1952.” (I think there may still be some of these floating around campus.)
And finally, what to me is the most interesting one: “Chemistry Faculty Research, 1952.” If I knew what this was, I might be able to figure out whose research we’re looking at here, but I really have no idea.
