Nobel-winning physics professor donates papers to Illinois

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — A Nobel Prize-winning physics professor donated papers from more than 50 years of work to the University of Illinois Archives, the university announced this week.

Anthony Leggett was awarded the 2003 Nobel Prize in Physics for contributions to the theory of superconductors and superfluids. He has been a physics professor at the university since 1983.

The donated material includes Leggett’s early correspondence, research and lectures, along with handwritten research notes and correspondence with other scholars.

University Archivist William Maher said the donation will help researchers of science history compare and contrast Leggett’s approach with others’ work.

Leggett was born in London in 1938. He retired from the University of Illinois in December.

“Graduate and advanced researchers hunger after collections like these,“ said Susanne Belovari, the archivist for faculty papers at University Archives. “We are very fortunate that Professor Leggett has decided to entrust his papers to us so we can make them available to researchers worldwide.”
