This subfonds relates to lectures and speeches delivered by Peter Rowe, apart from his routine university lecturing duties. Among the most significant was the Twelfth Rankine Lecture on soil sampling and testing techniques, given to the British Geotechnical Society at the Institution of Civil Engineers in 1972 (PWR/7/4). For this Rowe adopted the then innovative method of using twin slide projectors. Besides draft and final texts of lectures, PWR/7 contains correspondence concerning the arrangements for lectures, preparatory notes, lists of slides, programmes and letters of thanks. The first two files also contain chronological lists of lectures.

Scope and Content
The first two files were obviously compiled by Peter Rowe for reference purposes and so have been kept as distinct units. There was no inherent order to the subsequent material and so this has been arranged chronologically.
