Henry Hazlehurst Wiegand notebooks
Scope and Contents
The collection consists of 20 notebooks of student class notes or laboratory notes dating from 1876-1906. The notebooks also contain clippings and printed material on related topics. A brief description of each notebook is in the containter list. Wiegand studied under Henry A. Rowland and Louis Duncan, and there are notebooks from their lectures. There is also a volume of notes [1880s?] entitled "Electricity and Magnetism" taken by Gustav Adolf Liebig. Liebig was a fellow in physics when Wiegand was a student at Hopkins. The notes are possibly from Rowland lectures. Another notebook (l904) contains data on experiments with a process of color photography developed by Wiegand and a Mr. [Ludwik?] Silberstein. It was apparently different from the process patented by Hopkins physicist Robert W. Wood.
