Title: Student and teaching materials,
Quantity: 3.2 cubic feet (9 boxes)
Abstract: Beverly C. Dunn (1917-1984) earned his Harvard AB 1940, Harvard AM 1942, and Harvard Ph.D. 1949. He was both a Harvard University student and a teaching fellow. This collection documents physics and mathematics at Harvard during, and immediately after, World War II.
- Dunn, Beverly Charles. The theory of Bessel functions and their application to classical physics. 1940 A.B. Honors thesis (HU 92.40.343)
- Dunn, Beverly Charles. Microwave filed-measurements: I. Measurement of surface-current and charge distributions on metal surfaces at microwave frequencies. II.

Beverly Charles Dunn (1917-1984), earned his Harvard A.B. in 1940, A.M. in 1942, and a Ph.D. in 1949. He was both a Harvard University student and a teaching fellow. Dunn studied of electromagnetic radiation. After receiving his A.M., Dunn served for three years as a physics instructor in the Harvard Pre-radar School for Army and Navy Officers. In 1945, he became a research associate of the Antenna Group of Central Communications Research, a project of the United States Office of Scientific Research Development at Harvard. In 1946, he became a research assistant and student in Harvard's Electronics Research Laboratory, working on microwave electromagnetic radiation. Dunn left Harvard in 1954 to work in private industry.
This collection is organized in two series:
- Student Materials
- Teaching Materials
This collection reflects the academic activities of Beverly Charles Dunn. The materials relate chiefly to his own studies but also document his activities as a teaching fellow, including assignments in physics and mathematics courses from the late 1930's through the late 1940's.The physical format of the material ranges from handwritten notes, illustrations and diagrams to typed and mimeographed material.Dunn's work training military officers in the Pre-Radar School is not documented in this collection.
