Oldham's notes of his experimental work in physics for the Natural Sciences Tripos, Part II, 1925-1927. An enclosed letter from Oldham, 24 July 1973, explains that he came to St John's College, Cambridge, in 1925 with a degree from King's College, London, which excused him from Part I of the Tripos. A copy letter from Prof. A.B. Pippard, 12 July 1973, acknowledges receipt of the notebooks for the Cavendish Laboratory archives.
