    The New Zealander Rutherford is producing some really exciting results in the field of radioactivity here in Cambridge. I predict big things.

  • John Cox (McGill, Montreal)
    Hello JJ - as you've probably heard, Hugh Callendar is retiring from the Chair here to go back to England - South Kensington in fact. Do you know of anyone who might be a good replacement?
    1897 ·
      • JJ Thompson (Cambridge)
        JJ Thompson (Cambridge) Hi John. Yes I had a hand in Callendar's appointment to Sth Ken. You both have done great things there in Montreal. I've got a brilliant young lad from New Zealand here who I think would be perfect!
        1897
      • John Cox (McGill, Montreal)
        John Cox (McGill, Montreal) Thanks JJ. What do you say, Rutherford? It's a good salary - better than you can get in England - and you'll be professor of one of the best equipped physics labs in the world?
        1897
      • Ernest Rutherford (Cambridge)
        Ernest Rutherford (Cambridge) Sounds like a great offer Cox. And in a year or two it will enable me to get married! I accept.

    Soddy - can I convince you to leave Oxford and come here to McGill? We've got a really great group working on radioactivity: R.K. McClung and Harriet Brooks and Toronto's H.L Cooke - what do you say?

      • Frederick Soddy
        Frederick Soddy Absolutely Rutherford. Would love to come. JJ has been saying such good things about you. I think you could probably convince A.S. Eve to join us as well. He's currently in Cambridge.

    Soddy, I wonder if you could submit my paper to the Phil Mag for me? It would speed things up hugely.

      • Frederick Soddy
        Frederick Soddy No problem, I'll be in London next month and will see it through the press. Do you also want so Radium? It's hard to come by, but I can get hold of some through Rutherford for you.

      • W.H. Bragg (Adelaide)
        W.H. Bragg (Adelaide) oh yes, please - I have a research student here and we'd love to get hold of some for our work on x-rays
        1902
  • Ernest Rutherford (McGill, Montreal)
    Bragg - it's been ages, but I just read your paper in the Phil Mag. Such great work. Soddy tells me he saw you in Adelaide last month too.

    Have been awarded and 1851 Scholarship! Long way from night school at Sydney Uni. England here I come - I'm thinking Birmingham.

      • JJ Thompson (Cambridge)
        JJ Thompson (Cambridge) Laby congratulations on the scholarship. But don't go to Birmingham, come and work on radio-activity in Cambridge instead. Your experimental skills and chemical knowledge are just what we need.

    Rutherford. I keep reading all about your achievements in the press and the journals. I'm managing to get some research done here in NZ. What's the gossip from England?

        Ernest Rutherford Ok ok this is massive. Things are moving so fast, we really need researchers with good experiment and instrument making skills.

  • T.H. Laby (New Zealand)
    Rutherford, there's a job going in Melbourne. Would you write me a testimonial? I know what weight a note from you carries. There's no London selection committee because of the war.

    Cambridge congratulates Ernest Rutherford on his appointment as Director of the Cavendish Laboratory! A worthy successor to JJ Thompson, and a great asset to Cambridge!

    Rutherford, I've got some more research students for you. They've won travelling scholarships from Melbourne. I've trained them up in measurment, experimentation and instrument making ...

        Ernest Rutherford (Cambridge) We are pretty full at the moment, due to the war, but as they're your students, I'll find room for them. You always send such good men.

      • T.H. Laby (Melbourne)
        T.H. Laby (Melbourne) If you could present a paper on my recent work to the Royal Society as well that would be amazing. Roberts and Rogers keep me well informed of all the UK physics news ...

      • Ernest Rutherford (Cambridge)
        Ernest Rutherford (Cambridge) Anytime - happy to be your Ambassador in Britain. Your students tell me you working on precise measurement in Melbourne? When are you coming here for sabbatical leave?
        1924
  • Ernest Rutherford (Cambridge)
    Have been busy serving on so many London appointments committees lately - we sent Laby's man Mohr to Cape Town, Webster to the Uni of Queensland, and Eve has taken McGill. There's more to come too!
