Biography of Samuel Abraham Goudsmit

Samuel Abraham Goudsmit was born in The Hague, Netherlands on July 11, 1902. His mother, Marianne Gompers Goudsmit, ran a millinery shop and his father, Isaac, was a wholesale dealer in bathroom fixtures. Goudsmit studied theoretical physics at the University of Leiden (1919-1926), did experimental research at the University of Amsterdam (1923-1926), and received his Ph.D. in physics from Leiden in 1927. In that year he married Jaantje Logher and emigrated to the United States.

His first position in his adopted country was on the physics faculty at the University of Michigan. He remained there until World War II when he joined the staff of the Radiation Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. From 1944 to 1946 he was detailed to the War Department as Chief of Scientific Intelligence of the Alsos Mission which moved with the advancing Allied forces in Europe to investigate the German atomic bomb project. After the war Goudsmit was a professor of physics at Northwestern University (1946-1948) and then became senior scientist at Brookhaven National Laboratory (1948-1970). He served as the editor of The Physical Review (1950-1974) and the editor-in-Chief of the American Physical Society (1966-1974), founding its Physical Review Letters in 1958. From 1975 until his death he was a Visiting Professor at the University of Nevada, Reno.

The discovery of electron spin in 1925 with fellow student George E. Uhlenbeck is generally considered Goudsmit's most significant contribution to physics. It led to the recognition that spin was a property of protons, neutrons, and most elementary particles and to a fundamental change in the mathematical structure of quantum mechanics. For their groundbreaking work, they received Research Corporation Awards in 1953, Max Planck Medals in 1964, U.S. National Medals of Science in 1976, and were made Commanders in the Royal Netherlands Order of Orange-Nassau in 1977.

Goudsmit also made the first measurement of nuclear spin and its Zeeman effect with Ernst Back (1926-1927), developed a theory of hyperfine structure of spectral lines, made the first spectroscopic determination of nuclear magnetic moments (1931-1933), contributed to the theory of complex atoms and the theory of multiple scattering of electrons, introduced the statistical random line problem (1940), and invented the magnetic time-of-flight mass spectrometer (1948).

Goudsmit was the recipient of many other awards and fellowships, lectured around the country and abroad, was a visiting professor at a number of universities including Harvard University and Rockefeller University, and was the author of The Structure of Line Spectra with Linus Pauling (1930), Atomic Energy States with Robert F. Bacher (1932), Alsos (1947), Time with R. Claiborne and the editors of Life Magazine (1966), and numerous articles and editorials.

Goudsmit had one daughter from his first marriage, Esther Marianne, and in 1960 married Irene Bejach. He died in 1978.

Scope and Contents of Collection

This collection is primarily composed of correspondence and also includes notes, memoranda, articles, manuscripts, notebooks, photographs, audiotapes, microfilm, and some other materials. Most materials are in English, but many are in German, Dutch, or French. The collection documents Goudsmit's long and multifaceted career from his discovery with George Uhlenbeck of electron spin, through his role on the Alsos Missions, work at Brookhaven National Laboratory and as Editor-in-Chief of the American Physical Society (APS), to his post as visiting professor at the University of Nevada. The APS material mostly concerns the editing and publishing of the Physical Review and Physical Review Letters. Additional material includes lecture notes and related correspondence; Goudsmit's notebooks from lectures given by Paul Ehrenfest at the University of Leiden; reports and work on the attitudes of German scientists during the Nazi regime and papers concerning the publication of his book Alsos; and his research data from the University of Michigan and the Brookhaven National Laboratory. Scientific topics include atomic structure, cyclotrons, quantum theory, nuclear physics, and spectroscopy. Other areas covered include science and politics, Egyptology, criminology, World War II refugees, parapsychology, UFO's, and philately. Correspondents include: Robert F. Bacher, Gregory Breit, Léon Brillouin, Detlev W. Bronk, Walter and Martha Colby, Dirk Coster, Gerard Heinrich Dieke, Paul Ehrenfest, Enrico Fermi, George Gamow,Werner Heisenberg, Jaap Kistemaaker, Alfred Landé, Jonothan Logan, Wendell Mordy, Linus Carl Pauling, Harrison Randall, Paul Rosbaud, George Uhlenbeck, John H. Van Vleck, Joseph Weber, Friedwardt Winterberg, John Wulff, Pieter Zeeman, and many others.

Arrangement of Collection

It has been impossible to duplicate the original arrangement of these materials. Not only was the collection, which spans a period of nearly sixty years, deposited in parts, the processing of this collection has extended over more than a decade and has included the efforts of a number of people. Additionally, the 1921-1941 correspondence (Series II) was put into chronological order to accommodate the AHQP project.

However, Goudsmit's arrangement, or at least the spirit of Goudsmit's arrangement, has been retained to a considerable extent in many of the series. The largest series, Individuals, Institutions, and Subjects (III), seems to be a close reconstruction of Goudsmit's general correspondence files, although some folders have been retitled for clarity, some folders which were very full have been divided into two or more, and a few miscellaneous folders which fit here better than elsewhere were added to the series. The Alsos Mission series (IV) also seems to be material which he kept together and the old folder headings have been maintained to a large extent. However, as this material was split up and then obtained by the Niels Bohr Library & Archives from a number of sources the original order has not been preserved. Subseries A (American Philosophical Society) and B (American Physical Society) of Series XI (Organizations) seem to be in roughly the same order they were found in after Goudsmit's death, as does Series XV, Writers' Files.

The arrangement of the series which largely contains articles and manuscripts, that is Writings by Goudsmit (X), Scientific Subject Files (XII), and Author Files (XIII) is more fabricated. However, even in these cases there has been an attempt to adhere to Goudsmit's arrangement, and folder headings have usually been retained. Series XII and XIII contain similar materials, but the materials were filed in distinct series because the materials in Series XII were originally in folders headed by subjects while the others were simply headed by paper title and/or author or were not foldered.

The researcher using this collection should realize that there is not necessarily only 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. (For example, the Alsos Mission series contains papers Goudsmit kept together under that heading. However, other Alsos related material may be found throughout the collection: correspondence and other papers may be in Series III under the names of specific individuals, related articles by Goudsmit are in Series X, and slides are in Series XVI.)

Provenance and Acquisition Information

This large collection was received by the Niels Bohr Library & Archives in a number of parts over the course of fifteen years. In the early 1970s Samuel Goudsmit made the decision to place his papers here, and before his death in 1978 he had deposited the 1921-1941 correspondence which comprises Series II and which was microfilmed in part in 1963 by the Joint Committee on the History of Theoretical Physics in the Twentieth Century of the American Physical Society and the American Philosophical Society and the rest later by arrangement with the Niels Bohr Library & Archives. The Niels Bohr Library & Archives also received a few other miscellaneous materials during that period. The bulk of the collection was a bequest of Goudsmit's and arrived in 1979. Irene Goudsmit retained some papers at that time. In 1983 she donated one additional transfile. Those materials were primarily incorporated into what became the Alsos Mission series (IV); a few other of those folders concerned his work at Brookhaven and ended up in Series VII, and one folder on subversive organizations is in the Science and Government Security series (IX). At the same time Irene Goudsmit gave materials concerning the Holocaust to B'nai B'rith in New York City. The final deposit of two cartons of personal materials and German documents which Goudsmit obtained while on the Alsos Mission was made in 1986 by the United States Department of Energy, which had earlier obtained classified papers and materials related to his intelligence work. These documents became the bulk of the Alsos Mission series and a few folders were put in the Science and Government Security series. A few documents were not declassified. They were pulled from those boxes and not included in the deposit; they are listed at the end of this finding aid but are closed to the public until the year 2000. Four other cartons of declassified official correspondence relating to Goudsmit's activities in the employ of the federal government were deposited in the National Archives by the Department of Energy; there is a folder list of those papers in the Niels Bohr Library & Archives documentation. The old processing notes contain more details on the provenance of specific folders.

Processing Information

This collection was processed by Marilyn Gisser in June 1990.

While folder headings were often maintained, all the old folders were replaced with archival quality, acid free folders, and all materials were transferred to archival quality, acid free storage boxes. Inappropriatedly sized folders and deteriorated boxes were replaced during the digitization process (2009-2011).

Series Descriptions

Series I. Biographical materials (box 1)
This small series includes biographical articles, reference book entries, and a few other miscellaneous materials such as retirement acknowledgments and Christmas cards.
 
Series II. Chronological correspondence, 1921-1941 (boxes 2-4)
This early correspondence, which is primarily personal and professional in nature rather than technical, was put into chronological order for the Archives for History of Quantum Physics project (AHQP). Most of the 1921-1933 correspondence was microfilmed in 1963 (AHQP reels 60-65). The other correspondence in this series was also later microfilmed. Each microfilm reel contains an itemized chronological listing of correspondents. In addition, copies of Thomas Kuhn's cards listing the AHQP correspondence and a printout of the listing for the 1933-1941 correspondence can be found in the processing notes. There is also a list of pre-1933 correspondence on microfilm in this collection (see Series XVI). Researchers should also reference the correspondence between Goudsmit and Henry L. Woudhuysen in Series XVII (box 75).
 
Series III. Individuals, institutions, and subjects (boxes 5-24)
This is Goudsmit's general file of correspondence and other papers arranged alphabetically by correspondent or subject. A wide variety of mostly nontechnical topics are covered here, revealing the wide scope of Goudsmit's interests and activities. Items are usually filed under the name of an individual or institution involved rather than under a subject heading.

Series VI. University of Nevada, Desert Research Institute (boxes 38-39)
The Desert Research Institute was organized at the University of Nevada at Reno in 1960 to conduct fundamental and applied research. Wendell A. Mordy became its first director. Goudsmit was asked to comment on the first proposal for funding for the Institute from the Research Corporation foundation. He showed much interest in the Institute from its outset, but did not join its advisory board until 1965. The material in this series includes general information about the Institute, reports of its advisory committee, and correspondence with its directors and other committee members.
 
Series VII. Brookhaven and other positions (boxes 39-40)
This series contains information about some of Goudsmit's nonacademic jobs and consultantships. There are four folders on the Brookhaven National Laboratory, four on other jobs including work with the Navy, Argonne National Laboratory, and the Atomic Energy Commission, and one folder on job offers he declined.
 
Series VIII. Travel (box 40)
This series contains a selection of notes and correspondence on trips and arrangements, travel reports, and brochures. Other travel papers are interfiled elsewhere in the collection.
 
Series IX. Science and government security (boxes 40-41)
This series includes notes, correspondence, and other papers concerning security clearance, visa problems, travel restrictions, the McCarthy hearings, and other issues related to the interaction between science and politics. Individuals who are particular foci here are Morris Berg, Joan Hinton, J. Robert Oppenheimer, Lew and Kate Kowarski, and Johannes M. Burgers.
 
Series X. Writings by Goudsmit (boxes 42-46)
Goudsmit was a prolific writer. This series of his written work contains four subseries.
Subseries A. Unpublished manuscripts, published articles, reports, and a patent
This is the largest subseries, and is arranged chronologically by year and then alphabetized by title within years. Most of this work is on scientific topics, but there is also work on science and government, World War II, and German science, and some papers reflect his other interests such as archeology and Egyptology. Multiple language versions of papers are grouped together under English title (if it exists). Related notes and correspondence are also in some files.
Subseries B. Letters to the editor of various publications
Includes some letters which were not published. They are arranged chronologically by the publication date if there was one and it is known, otherwise by the date they were written.
Subseries C. Obituaries
Subseries D. Book reviews
Arranged chronologically by review date.
 
Series XI. Organizations (boxes 47-55)
This series contains correspondence, memoranda, notes, and other papers related to Goudsmit's involvement with various organizations.
Subseries A. American Philosophical Society
Subseries B. American Physical Society
This subseries is the bulk of the series. Some of these papers concern Goudsmit's committee work and general involvement in APS. Most are from his job as editor and relate to topics such as editorial policies, administration, and policies such as the exchange of copies with other journals, page charges, and distribution of complimentary copies.
Subseries C. Other organizations
This subseries reflects some of Goudsmit's other involvements. The American Institute of Physics, the National Academy of Sciences, and other organizations are represented.
 
Series XII. Scientific subject files (boxes 56-60)
This series contains notes, articles and manuscripts by other people, and some photographs and drawings arranged by subject. There is a lot of material on spectroscopy and related subjects.
 
Series XIII. Author files (boxes 60-62)
This series contains reprints and papers arranged by author. In some cases there is also material such as reviews of works of those authors.
 
Series XIV. Notebooks (boxes 63-64)
This series contains a few student notebooks, research notebooks on specific topics, binders of notes on different topics, and a few very small notebooks with information such as addresses and expenses.
 
Series XV. Writer's files (boxes 65-66)
These files contain chronologically arranged copies of letters by Goudsmit. The letters cover a wide range of subjects, primarily concerning written work by Goudsmit and others, the publication of journals (editorial and administrative issues), and speaking engagements.
Writers' files from 1951-1968 are only on microfilm (see Series XVI. Audio-visual materials, subseries A. Microfilm). Unfortunately the quality is bad and difficult to read.
 
Series XVI. Audio-visual materials (boxes 67-72)

This series was not digitized and is the only series not available online.

Subseries A. Microfilm
This subseries contains six reels of microfilm of Goudsmit's papers, including three reels of film of his early "Writers' files" from 1951-1968, the originals of which probably no longer exist. Unfortunately these three reels are very difficult to read.
Subseries B. Slides
Contains approximately one hundred slides on various subjects including Alsos related images, American Physical Society editorial staff, and images for Goudsmit's 1976 Max Planck lectures. Many images were identified by Jonothan Logan in 1977 and captions by him accompany the slides.
Subseries C. Negatives, motion picture footage, and a filmstrip
This subseries includes 62 rolls of negatives, a few miscellaneous flat negatives, and some strips of 35mm negatives. Many were not labeled. A few were wrapped in paper with descriptive notes. Copies of those notes are in a folder in the box with the negatives; the notes are numbered and the corresponding numbers are written on the film wrappers. Most of the images are experimental data. Three rolls have non-experimental images such as people and scenery; they are labeled: "Harvard 1941," "Geneva 195?" and "Holland '45 (Alsos)." The strip negatives are Alsos-related images. There is also motion picture footage of Franklin Roosevelt and an unidentified filmstrip.
Subseries D. Photographs
Over 300 photographs, all of which are experimental data. Some are labeled.
Subseries E. Audio tapes
Four miscellaneous tapes.
Subseries F. Lantern slides
Contains 26 3½" x 4" slides. 18 are on mass spectrometer history and include images of charts and equipment. Eight slides are chemical work on mass spectroscopy.
 
Series XVII. Correspondence with Henry L. Woudhuysen (Goudsmit's brother-in-law) (box 75)
Contains correspondence between Goudsmit and Woudhuysen regarding personnel issues at Pergamon Press.
