This from the early library records: Physicist H.A. Wilson, having just visited the library at the University of Texas, bemoans Rice’s inability to locate full runs of the German journal Annalen der Physik:
I alternate between sympathy for Wilson and sympathy for Miss Dean, who was surely beset on all sides. I also note that a quick perusal of the Fondren catalog indicates that we never did get those volumes. On the other hand, it took less than five minutes on the internet to find exactly what Professor Wilson was looking for.
