This extensive collection encompasses not only about 180 interview sessions with 95 interviewees, it consists also of letters, laboratory notes (copies from other archives) and reprints from Journals. Working with the rich archive material I have drafted three papers I attempt to unfold in the next couple months. They are at the intersection of philosophy of physics and history of physics:
      1. Aspects of the Continuum Concept in Physics and Philosophy
      2. Ether Theory Revised
      3. Early modern theories of relativity: the case of Huygens and Leibniz contra Newton
