This notebook is one of a set of notebooks created by Massachusetts Institute of Technology electrical engineering professor Harold E. Edgerton which document his research during the period 1927 to 1990, as well as personal and professional activities. The book contains a small amount of notes on the topic of high speed motion picture capture of insect flight, recorded in 1938 and 1939. There are also scattered notes about work items of interest "that come to attention at home" and the book was also used for occasional personal notes from September 1948 to July 1989.
