DescriptionThis scrapbook contains material generated during Barker's work with Professor Melvin Calvin at the Radiation Laboratory, Berkeley, University of California from January to April 1956.

The file also contains press cuttings from Californian newspapers concerning the arrival and activities of foreign students, including Barker; photographs of Barker, his friends at the University, and the Californian landscape; and a typescript account by Barker entitled 'Some Thoughts on California' which highlights some of the differences between daily life in England and California, and between California and other states of America.
