Series II. Laboratory Notebooks [series]:
  3  
Personal college and grad school lab course notebooks
  3  
Miscellaneous research lab notebooks from Holcomb and other workers in Holcomb Lab, 1952-1992
This assortment of lab books is very incomplete - in some cases because notebooks left Cornell with the primary contributors, in some because the notebook fit more clearly into Boxes 7 or 8. In the case of lab notebooks from Holcomb work as a graduate student at the University of Illinois, the ratio of useful material to bulk was simply too small to justify saving. This work is quite fully described in Holcomb's Ph.D. thesis, "Nuclear magnetic resonance in alkali metals," 1954. A copy of this is held in the Cornell library.
