Andrade Collection

Edward Neville da Costa Andrade (1887-1971) was Professor of Physics at Woolwich and London University. He was interested in the history of seventeenth century science, particularly in the history of Isaac Newton and Richard Hooke and edited the tercentenary collection of Newton’s letters. Aside from science his main interest was literature and amongst his many scientific works he also found time to publish poetry. He died in 1971. The Andrade Collection comprises personal papers, pamphlets and correspondence between Andrade and figures such as Lenard, Montgomery of Alamein, Walter de la Mare and T.S. Elliot.


The strength of the collection lies in the material relating to the history of science in the early 20th century.
