  • Churchill College

Project summary

This project was to appraise, sort, repackage and catalogue the personal papers of Professor Sir Aaron Klug, Nobel Prize-winning chemist and biophysicist, former Director of the Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology and President of the Royal Society. The papers were in about 300 archival boxes taken from his home and from his office in Cambridge. The project was to produce a full archival catalogue, posted online on the Janus webserver, and to obtain physical and intellectual control of the collection to open it for research in the reading rooms of the Churchill Archives Centre.
