Conrad, Albert Godfrey, 1902-
The papers consist of office files from the first quarter-century of Albert G. Conrad's career as an instructor of electrical engineering at Yale and an autobiographical memoir. Materials include correspondence, writings, printed matter, photographs, and memorabilia, the latter including drawings, blueprints, charts, and a record of a speech by Conrad. The collection is especially rich in materials concerning life at Yale during World War II. The bulk of the papers concerns the Department of Electrical Engineering at Yale, during the chairmanships of Charles F. Scott (1920-1933), Robert E. Doherty (1933-1938), and Samuel W. Dudley (Acting Chairman, 1938-1943), and the beginning of Conrad's tenure as chairman. These papers document the department's administrative and financial affairs, and the research and testing conducted at Dunham Laboratory.
