    Bragg: Yes, a very close personal relationship. He discovered a new species of cuttlefish — Sepia bragginamed for him by Joseph Verco. Also photocopied "juvenile drawings" by William Lawrence Bragg. Upon her death, when he was barely seven, he went to live with two paternal uncles who had set up a pharmacy and grocery shop in Market HarboroughLeicestershire.

    He'd write sometimes the wisest letters afterwards about it but he just couldn't bear to talk. He gave me all the excitement of life. And I think that was partly responsible for my starting crystallography because some man gave a paper on the theory of crystals at this little group. During the war the Cavendish offered a shortened graduate course which emphasised the electronics needed for radar.

    Also material relating to William Lawrence Bragg's military service; photocopied articles on the Third Battle of Ypres also known as the Battle of Passchendaele ; photocopied article entitled "Cambridge between Two Wars". But I was allowed to take it though I was feeling queer, as a matter of fact, and I remember the Master, Butler, insisted on reading all the essays. Bragg, and Gwendoline Bragg; photocopies from publications and newspaper clippings on or referring to the Braggs and the Society of Arts; and related notes and correspondence. Bragg: Rutherford was his confidante, and I found in the Cavendish amongst Rutherford's papers these letters that my father had written, many of them twenty pages long.

He was 25 years old and remains the youngest science laureate. During the First World War, Bragg was put in charge of research on the detection and measurement of underwater sounds in connection with the location of submarines.

Bragg and his elder son, Lawrence, who Bragg family in Adelaide book studying physics at Cambridge, then began to apply X rays to the study of crystal structure. Now the cause of science was strengthened by the report of a high level Army committee on lessons learned in the last war; their first recommendation was to "keep abreast of modern scientific developments".

Bragg: I went to the university very young — at 15 actually — and got my degree at 18, in mathematics. If the fundamental discovery of the wave aspect of X-rays, as evidenced by their diffraction in crystals, was due to von Laue and his collaborators, it is equally true that the use of X-rays as an instrument for the systematic revelation of the way in which crystals are built was entirely due to the Braggs.

Lawrence Bragg

During the summer vacation ofhis father discussed with him a recent book on the work of the German physicist Max von Lauewho asserted that X-rays could be diffracted by passing them through crystals. About this period of his life he often used to remark that he Bragg family in Adelaide book the engagement book, the in-tray, and the list of matters requiring urgent attention to be the deadly enemies of scientific work.

He organised periodic conferences on X-ray analysis, which was widely used in military research. In he became deeply disturbed while weighing a job offer from Imperial College, London.
