Unit Publications [series]

The Unit Publications series includes brochures describing graduate studies in the department dating from 1975 to 1987; bulletins announcing course offerings with the earliest dated 1915; calendars dating from 1992 to 1996 which announce events, conferences, and lectures being offered by the department; and directories. In 1996 the department ceased to publish a printed weekly calendar and created an e-mail list for the announcement of departmental events. These are printed out and found under the heading "Calendars (e-mail)" under the title Seminars and Colloquia. There are also several flyers describing individual colloquia, course announcements, lectures, and seminars. Many of these printed e-mail messages date from the late 1990s to the present.

This series also contains a history of the department entitled On the History of Physics at Michigan: The Department of Physics, 1843- 1975 by Charles Meyer, George Lindsay, Ernest Barker, David Dennison, and Jens Zorn. This volume, published in 1988, also includes a study entitled Nuclear Physics at Michigan by William Parkinson. These two histories were written to celebrate the centennial of the first building devoted to physics research and teaching constructed on the University of Michigan campus. There is also an undated history entitled Physics and the Department of Physics Since 1900 by David M. Dennison.

There are three newsletters included in the Unit Publications series. The Department of Physics Newsletter was published from 1988 to 1993 and continued until 1998 under the new title Michigan Physics Newsletter. A newsletter for alumni entitled News of Michigan Physics was published from 1978 to 1995. A copy of the 1988 prospectus entitled Prospectus for a New Physics Laboratory Building and Renovation of the Randall Laboratory Building is located in this series. There is also a 1991 report with an overview of the Department of Physics describing the long-range plans of the department. Several speeches given by Homer Neal are also in this series.
