Biography of J. H. Van Vleck

John Hasbrouck Van Vleck was born in Middletown, Connecticut on March 13, 1899. His father, Edward Burr Van Vleck, was a professor of mathematics at Wesleyan University and the University of Wisconsin. His mother was Hester Laurence (Raymond) Van Vleck. Van Vleck earned his B.S. from the University of Wisconsin in 1920 and his M.S. and Ph.D. at Harvard University in 1921 and 1922, where he did his thesis on quantum theory under E. C. Kemble. He married Abigail June Pearson in 1927.

After earning his Ph.D. Van Vleck served as an instructor at Harvard for a year. He then held positions on the faculties of the University of Minnesota and the University of Wisconsin. In 1934 he returned to Harvard as a professor and remained there for the rest of his career. From 1951 through 1969 he held the prestigious Hollis Professorship of Mathematics and Natural Philosophy. While at Harvard he also headed the theory group at the Radio Research Laboratory, 1943-45, served as the chairman of the department of physics, 1945-49, and was Harvard's first dean of engineering and applied physics, 1951-57. He was president of the American Physical Society from 1952 to 1953.

Van Vleck is known as a pioneer of quantum mechanics. He was one of the first to teach it, and early in his career did important work on the application and verification of the new quantum theory and its application to the theory of electric and magnetic phenomena. This work was partially covered in his 1933 book The Theory of Electric and Magnetic Susceptibilities. He went on to produce numerous important papers in a range of fields including molecular and solid- state spectroscopy in the radio frequency region and relaxation and line-breadth problems. His new methods helped lay the basis for the quantum theory of solids and of magnetism, in particular.

In 1977 Van Vleck was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics jointly with Sir Nevill Mott and Philip Anderson "for their fundamental theoretical investigations of the electronic structure of magnetic and disordered systems." He also received many honorary degrees, memberships in honorary societies, medals, prizes and other honors. Among them are the Case Institute of Technology's Albert A. Michelson Award, 1963, the National Medal of Science of the National Science Foundation, 1966, the Lorentz Medal of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, 1974, and memberships in the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Sciences.

Van Vleck died October 27, 1980 in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Scope and Contents of Collection

The collection is largely composed of correspondence, and also includes manuscripts, reprints, notes, memoranda, clippings, photographs, an audiotape, and other materials. Correspondence and related materials concern such topics as quantum theory of solids, meetings on magnetism and ferromagnetism, the 1977 Nobel Prize, recent history of science, railroads, the Shockley controversy over race and intelligence, the American Institute of Physics Committee on Mathematical Typography (1940s), and the National Bureau of Standards battery additive controversy. Manuscripts include materials for a revision of his 1932 book, The Theory of Electric Susceptibilities, and course theses written as a graduate student of Percy W. Bridgman (1920-1922). Also included are speeches, miscellaneous notes and calculations, book reviews, news releases, and notes taken at Van Vleck's quantum mechanics course (1927-1928). Genealogical and family materials on the Van Vleck family include correspondence of his grandfather, John M. Van Vleck (astronomer and mathematician) and his father, Edward B. Van Vleck (mathematician).

The American Philosophical Society holds Van Vleck materials from the 1920s and 1930s which were microfilmed as part of the Archives for the History of Quantum Physics.

Arrangement of Collection

About one half of the materials were arranged in two sets of alphabetical files in Van Vleck's office. This arrangement has been retained and this material now comprises Series II, General files I, and Series VII, Alphabetical correspondence files: 1920s-50s. The other materials were in disorder in Van Vleck's office and home. For the most part folders were not in any perceivable groupings, although some materials were in labeled folders. Material that was logically foldered together has been kept together and artificial series have been created.

The researcher using this collection should be aware that there is not necessarily one logical place for any given document, and that when searching for a specific item or material pertaining to a particular topic, one should study the finding aid and explore different possible locations. One should be especially aware that the folders in Series II, General Files I, cover a wide range of topics and may be similar to materials in other series. For assistance see the Series II cross reference list at the end of the finding aid.

Alternate Formats of this Collection

This collection also available in microfilm.

Access to Collection

Open to approved researchers with the exception of one box of sensitive materials to which access is restricted until 2014.

Restrictions on Use of Collection

No restrictions.

Provenance and Acquisition Information

Gift of Abigail Van Vleck in 1982.

Because Van Vleck had wanted all of his papers except those that could be considered official Harvard records to be housed at the American Institute of Physics' Niels Bohr Library, they were transferred here in 1982. Harvard retained a small portion of the collection which contains Van Vleck's correspondence and other records as chairman of the Harvard Physics Department and as Dean of the Division of Engineering and Applied Physics.

The manuscript of the proposed second edition of The Theory of Electric and Magnetic Susceptibilities was received from Brebis Bleaney of Clarendon Laboratory in 1983.

After Van Vleck's death the bulk of papers, which were housed at his office in the Lyman Laboratory at Harvard and Abigail Van Vleck's apartment, were transferred to the Harvard University Archives.

Processing Information

This collection was processed by Marilyn Gisser in April 1991.

All of the materials were transferred to archival quality, acid-free folders and boxes. Folder headings were retained where they existed, with only some minor modifications for clarity.

Series Descriptions

I. Biographical and personal materials, 1853-1981 Boxes 1-2
This small series contains biographical articles, reference book entries, bibliographic materials, school records from Van Vleck's childhood, and some financial records. There is also correspondence and other material pertaining to relatives of Van Vleck and materials reflecting a few of Van Vleck's nonprofessional interests and activities.
 
II. General files I, 1919-1979 Boxes 3-34
This series, which comprises over half of the collection, has been preserved in its original arrangement, with only some minor adjustments. It contains correspondence and other papers arranged alphabetically by correspondent or, less frequently, subject. The wide range of topics here reflects many aspects of Van Vleck's career including his teaching, writing, research, and organizational involvements. Interactions with many scientists and other individuals and organizations are documented.
 
III. General files II, 1877-1981 Boxes 34-41
This series, which resembles Series II, contains a wide range of correspondence and other materials which were found throughout the collection and could not be logically placed in any other series. Much, but not all, of these papers document Van Vleck's involvement with many scientific and other organizations, including a number of folders of materials on his work as chairman of the 1967 International Union of Pure and Applied Physics' International Conference on Magnetism.
 
IV. Scientific subjects files, 1869-1972 Box 42
This series contains the handful of files headed with scientific subjects that were scattered throughout the collection. It includes correspondence, notes, reprints, and manuscripts.
 
V. Miscellaneous notes, n.d. Box 43
This series is comprised of four folders of notes, pictures, and annotated clippings. The materials are largely scientific. Many are not labeled, but they seem primarily to be research materials or notes for lectures.
 
VI. Notebooks, 1927-1969 Boxes 43-44
The notebooks in this series are not all clearly identified. Contents include professional records and scientific notes which may be teaching notes. One contains notes taken by a student on a course taught by Van Vleck.
 
VII. Alphabetical correspondence files, 1920s-50s Boxes 45-47
The materials in this series are similar to those in Series II. It is not clear why they were separated since Series II includes materials from this period.
 
VIII. Chronological correspondence files, 1966-1975 Boxes 47-48
Most of the letters in this series are carbons of Van Vleck's outgoing correspondence for selected years from 1966 through 1975.
 
IX. Teaching materials, 1927-1968 Box 48
This series documents aspects of Van Vleck's teaching career, primarily at Harvard. It includes teaching notes, handouts, exams, and class schedules. Most is arranged by course, some is by topic.
 
X. Talks and written work by Van Vleck, 1920-1980 Boxes 49-53
A. Talks
Most of this material is manuscripts and published versions of scientific speeches by Van Vleck, along with some related clippings and announcements. There are also manuscripts of chapel sermons Van Vleck delivered, and there is an audio tape of two speeches Van Vleck made at meetings of the American Physical Society in 1974 and 1976 (these are the same as parts of Miscellaneous Tapes 7-76-5 and 7-74-20 and 21).
B. Papers and articles
These are mostly reprints and manuscripts of scientific papers arranged chronologically. There is some related correspondence and announcements. There are also some obituaries and book reviews.

Most, if not all, of these papers were written for courses taught by Percy Williams Bridgman from 1920-22.
 
XI. History of science, 1941-1979 Boxes 53-54
This series contains correspondence and other materials documenting Van Vleck's interactions with the AIP Center for History of Physics (including his role on the Center advisory committee and plans to document his work), with Thomas Kuhn, some of which was for the Sources for History of Quantum Physics project, and other evidence of his personal interest in the history of physics.
 
XII. Honors and awards, 1931-1978 Boxes 54-55
This material documents his receipt of prizes and honorary degrees. About half the material concerns his receipt of the 1977 Nobel Prize for Physics; much of that is congratulatory correspondence.
 
XIII. Manuscripts, reprints, & misc. published material, 1927-1981 Boxes 56-57
This series is comprised of manuscripts, reprints and miscellaneous published material which is not by Van Vleck. Most of this is scientific material arranged by author, but there are some folders of other miscellaneous printed material including material on Harvard.
 
XIV. Notecards, n.d. Box 58
The notecards are divided into three alphabetical sets of names and addresses and one with citations of articles arranged by title.
 
XV. Confidential files concerning appointments at Harvard, 1955-1964 Box 58
Papers from when Van Vleck sat on committees considering faculty appointments at Harvard. Until 2014 access to these materials requires the permission of the individuals concerned.
