Catalogue of the papers and correspondence of Colin William Fraser McClare (1937 - 1977) , scientist and biophysicist - detailed list



CSAC77.1.81/C Section C Scientific drafts and publications- C.1 - C.42


Scope and content:
The majority of the material in this Section is undated, and it has not usually been possible to do more than group together documents which have obvious similarities (such as drafts of the same article) and arrange them in a very rough chronological sequence. Related Material: See also CSAC.77.1.78.F.57.
There is a set of offprints of McClare's published papers at C.42. A list of McClare's major papers on bioenergetics is included in the Introduction to the collection


CSAC77.1.81/B.3-B.11 Laboratory notebooks.


CSAC77.1.81/B.3

Scope and content:
Spiral-bound notebook containing accounts of experimental procedure and results, c.1964-65.


CSAC77.1.81/B.12-B.23 Scientific 'Diaries'.


Scope and content:
The following notebooks have been called 'diaries' in order to distinguish them from the formal laboratory notebooks at B.3-B.11.
The 'diaries' contain a mixture of scientific observations, speculations, notes on the literature, mathematical calculations, lecture notes, drafts and personal notes and jottings of the type more usually found in a private diary. They form an important source for the progress of McClare's scientific thought which was inextricably bound up with the personal problems which finally overwhelmed him.
