After completing his history of Physics in Adelaide in the 1950s, Alastair Blake has continued with another investigation, this time of the 1960s. Again based on oral history interviews and his own detailed research, Alastair has produced a lively, beautifully written document of this important decade in our history. You will not only find out about the Carver years in the Physics Department, but also the important work of the Department of Mathematical Physics and the Mawson Institute for Antarctic Research. The birth of the Physics Department at Flinders University is also described.
We are grateful to those people who participated in the oral history interviews with Alastair Blake. A list of those interviews for both the 1950s and 1960s may be found here.
