Summary
Correspondence, diaries, experimental notebooks, speeches, writings, card reference file, clippings, printed matter, awards, photographs, and other papers relating chiefly to Langmuir's physical chemistry research, especially his years at General Electric Company Research Laboratory, Schenectady, N.Y. The notebooks contain data which led to the development of the gas-filled incandescent lamp, the high vacuum power tube, atomic hydrogen welding, screening smoke generators for the U.S. Armed Forces during World War II, and weather control. Subject files pertain to research topics such as cloud seeding experiments. Also includes smoked bathythermograph records and charts of Lake George, N.Y., and material pertaining to Langmuir's student years at Universität Göttingen, Göttingen, Germany. Correspondents include Niels Bohr, Vannevar Bush, Leopold Stokowski, and Willis Rodney Whitney.
