Societies and Organisations

Scope and Content

Societies and organisations, is not extensive. Only five British and international bodies are represented. Of considerable biographical interest are the correspondence and papers relating to the founding in 1918 of the National Union of Scientific Workers (Association of Scientific Workers from 1927). Jeffreys was a member of the original executive committee. Also of some significance are papers relating to the British National Committee for Geodesy and Geophysics, especially its Seismology SubCommittee, 1956-1973.
