Description

This notebook is one of a set of notebooks created by Massachusetts Institute of Technology electrical engineering professor Harold E. Edgerton which document his Stroboscopic Laboratory research during the period 1927 to 1990, as well as other personal and professional activities. The notebooks are a consistent record of his research activities with frequent, usually daily entries. They illustrate through notes, diagrams, data, and photographs the evolution of Edgerton's innovative ideas from inspiration to the finished plan or product. The notebooks also often served as a personal diary, containing entries about visits by colleagues, and activities of friends and family.
