Some years ago (the first edition was published in 1974) the Cambridge University Physics Society produced a booklet entitled "A Hundred Years and More of Cambridge Physics". This booklet was sold through the laboratory stores, and reprinted in 1980 and 1995.

The content of the booklet is reproduced here, though it should be pointed out that the articles are long and not ideally suited to viewing on the web. Also, you are likely to find it difficult to stop reading them once you have started!

The ISBN for the booklet is 0 9507343 1 4, though it is likely to be unavailable outside of the laboratory.
