Joseph Weber papers
Joseph Weber (1919-2000) was a University of Maryland physicist credited in the 1960s with conducting early research into detecting gravity waves. Dr. Weber's experiments began in 1958 and he first reported success in 1969, believing he had proved the waves' existence. Other scientists who duplicated Weber's experiments failed to find the same results, but nonetheless, they changed the way that scientists perceived gravity waves. The papers consist of working notes, correspondence, research, diagrams, technical reports and other documents collected by Dr. Weber both as a scientist, and as a University of Maryland faculty member.
