Biographical/Historical Note

R. A. (Robert Alan) Young (known as Ray), Professor Emeritus of Physics, earned both his bachelor's and master's degrees from Georgia Tech (1950 and 1951) and his Ph.D. from the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn in 1959. In addition to teaching in the School of Physics, Dr. Young headed several branches of Georgia Tech's Engineering Experiment Station (EES). His principal research experience was in crystal physics and in the physics and applications of x-ray, electron, and neutron diffraction phenomena. He co-edited the Journal of Applied Crystallography beginning in 1967.


Scope and Content Note

R. A. Young's papers include correspondence relating to his activities as editor of the Journal of Applied Crystallography, his career at Georgia Tech, and his research on powder diffraction and other areas.
