Description

Scope and Content

Manuscripts, typescripts, manuscript notes, diagrams, letters, and reprints of Hayner. These papers represent her early work while a graduate student and a teaching assistant at Columbia, 1920-1925, as a research physicist at General Electric, 1925-1928, and while a professor at Columbia, 1929-1937. The papers deal with research on the "shot effect" of electron emissions in vacuum tubes. There are notes on "arc" research, 1924-1925, notes and drafts of her 1925 Columbia Ph.D. dissertation: THE PERSISTENCE OF THE RADIATION EXCITED IN MERCURY VAPOR, files of notes on "secondary emissions," 1922-1928, and notes, manuscript and typescript drafts of her two articles "Shot Effect of Secondary Electron Currents" ( Physics VI , Oct. 1935) and "Shot Effect of Secondary Electrons from Nickel and Beryllium" ( The Physical Review, LII, Nov. 1, 1937). The second article was co-authored by her husband, Bernhard Kurrelmeyer, and there are also notes and drafts by him. Also, manuscripts and notes for his article "The Photoelectric Conductivity of Sulphur" (1927); and a few letters from other physicists relating to the publication of these articles.
