[Archimedes] Leadership and Creativity Volume 5 ||
Its subjects include any of the sciences, ranging from biology through physics, all aspects of technology, bro-adly construed, as well as historically-engaged philosophy of science or technology. Taken as a whole, Archimedes will be of interest to historians, philosophers, and scien-tists, as well as to those in business and industry who seek to understand how science and industry have come to be so strongly linked.

Thomson's Leadership. The ambition to write a decent history of the Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge first struck me in the fall of , my first semester at Harvard graduate school. As a foreign student from a non-Western developing country, South Korea, I was frightened and somewhat doubtful that I could survive in Harvard's competitive environment.
Although the history of physics had long been my favorite subject for study, my experience and knowledge were naturally quite limited.

For a course taught by Erwin N. Hiebert on the history of physical sciences during the twentieth century, I read an article by George P. Thomson about his father's discovery of the electron.
This article, "J. Thomson and the Discovery of the Electron Physics Today 9 : ," focused on Joseph John Thomson's greatness as a physicist and his charisma as a teacher. Fascinated by this account of J. Thomson's charming character, I devoted my term paper to an examination of his role as director of the Cavendish Laboratory. When Professor Hiebert encouraged me to delve further into the history of J. Thomson's achievements, I quickly discovered that the available histories of the Cavendish Laboratory depended heavily on the reminiscences and memoirs of former directors and researchers of the Cavendish and that these histories lacked systematic analysis.
I was especially bothered by the apparent consensus that an regulation change at Cambridge permitting non-Cambridge graduates to enter the University for post-graduate research was the chief cause of the Cavendish's sudden success at the turn of the twentieth century. I simply could not accept this idea. Thus began a long research project. The subject for a term paper developed into a doctoral dissertation in and finally matured into this book, which represents a thorough condensation and revision of my dissertation along with the addition of two new chapters.

My deepest gratitude is directed to Erwin N. Hiebert and to Silvan S. Erwin led me to this wonderful subject and has given my research efforts considerable attention ever since. I am very proud of the fact that he accepted me as his last doctoral candidate. He and Mrs. Elfrieda Hiebert offered myself and my family unfailing kindness, which was my secret source of strength as I worked to overcome many difficulties I encountered as a graduate student in the United States as well as a scholar and teacher in Korea.
Sam Schweber, who generously took over the role of my dissertation advisor when Erwin retired in , has looked after me ever since we met in a departmental colloquium in He read almost every word I wrote about the Cavendish and offered me incisive critiques. His encouragement was invaluable to me. It was he who urged me to publish my first paper about the Cavendish which appeared in the British Journal for the History of Science in and who pushed me to extend my dissertation into a book.
Sam also offered me wise counsel when I was confronted with personal difficulties after returning to. Who performed research at the Cavendish, when did they work there, and what topics did they investigate? And more. Full description. This book intends to answer the following questions: What made it possible to create the Cavendish Laboratory in the s? In what ways and to what extent did the Laboratory's directors influence the work of Cavendish researchers? How did the Cavendish become the mecca of experimental physics during the first third of the twentieth century?
In short, why was the Cavendish Laboratory so successful? In his search for the most plausible answers, the author makes clear that the history of Cavendish Laboratory is not only the story of a successful physics laboratory but also the story of great men.
