Abstract:

Johannes M. Burgers (1895-1981) was a Dutch mathematician and physical scientist who held a variety of scientific positions in the Netherlands before emigrating to the United States in 1955. In the U.S. he held the position of research professor at the Institute for Fluid Dynamics and Applied Mathematics, later the Institute for Physical Science and Technology, at the University of Maryland, College Park, from 1955 until his retirement in 1965. Burgers' papers document his life and career subsequent to his arrival in America and include research and lecture notes, and drafts of publications, as well as extensive correspondence. The files chronicle Burgers' work in the fields of gas dynamics and plasma physics, among others, and also reflect his continued interest and participation in scientific conferences after retirement.
