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.

Historical Note

Johannes Martinus Burgers was born in Arnhem (Netherlands) on January 13, 1895, the eldest son of Joanna Hendrika Romijn and Johannes Martinus Burgers. Both Johannes and his younger brother, Wilhelm (who later became a professor at the Technical University of Delft), attended primary and secondary school in Arnhem. Johannes completed his secondary schooling in 1912 and for the next two years took supplementary courses in Latin and Greek, while continuing his studies in higher mathematics and aspects of theoretical physics. He attended the University of Leiden from 1914 until 1917, passing his "candidates examen" in 1915 and his "doctoral examen" in 1917. Burgers became a Doctor of Mathematical and Physical Sciences in 1918; his thesis was "Het Atoommodel van Rugherford-Bohr" (The Model of the Atom according to Rutherford and Bohr).

Burgers' first position was Conservator at the Physical Laboratory of Teyler's Foundation (Teyler's Stichting) in Haarlem. From September 1918 until October 1955, Dr. Burgers was professor of Aerodynamics and Hydrodynamics at the Technical University of Delft. He was also secretary of the Department of Mechanical Enfineering and Shipbuilding from 1921 to 1924 and its chairman from 1929 until 1931. In this position, Burgers became acquainted with Theodore von Karman, L. Prandt, R. von Mises, G.I. Taylor and W.F. Durand, as well as maintaining contact with the most influential individual of his university career, Paul Ehrenfest. It was during this period at Delft that he became a leading authority on fluid dynamics. He worked extensively on the theory of turbulence and explored what is now known as the Burgers equation. He also wrote fundamental papers on the intrinsic viscosity of suspensions.

Resigning in 1955, Burgers and his wife, Anna, immigrated to the United States and settled in Maryland. Johannes had accepted the position of research professor at the Institute for Physical Dynamics and Applied Mathematics (now the institute for Physical Science and Technology) at the University of Maryland's College Park Campus. Burgers continued his interest in fluid dynamics while at the University, and was recognized for his studies in gas dynamics, plasma physics, shock waves, and related phenomena. Still active in his field, Burgers retired from the University of Maryland in 1965.

A member of more than twenty scientific societies, author of numerous articles and reviews, and recipient of two honorary degrees from the Universite Libre de Bruxelles (1948) and the Universite de Poitiers (1950), Burgers also received the Modesto Panetti Medal and Prize from the Accademia delle Scienze di Turino in 1961.

After his retirement, Burgers continued to maintain his considerable correspondence, attended scientific conferences and congresses and wrote two texts, Experience and Conceptual Activity and Flow Equations for Composite Gases. Deeply interested in philosophical ideas as well as scientific ones, he studied such fundamental issues as the influence of science upon society, the structure of the universe, and the origin and proper description of life. Johannes Burgers died in 1981 at the age of eighty-six, well-recognized in his field both as an author and professor. The Burgers Program for Fluid Dynamics, which is supported by faculty from the College of Computer, Mathematical and Physical Sciences and the A.J. Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland, was created to provide an environment and precedence for knowledge exchange and networking within the fluid dynamics community on the University of Maryland campus. This program maintains a close collaboration with the J.M. Burgers Centre in The Netherlands.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The Johannes M. Burgers Papers cover the period 1912 to 1981. The collection reflects Burgers' academic interests and activities as well as his curiosity about fields unrelated to his own. Approximately one-fourth of the collection consists of correspondence. Burgers' papers also include research and lecture notes, publication drafts, information pertaining to professional meetings, Institute for Fluid Dynamics and Applied Mathematics (IFDAM) materials, photographs, and slides.

The papers primarily reflect Burgers' activities subsequent to his immigration to the United States. Although Dr. Burgers brought selected materials representing his career in the Netherlands to this country, the preponderance of his pre-1955 papers remain in the Netherlands and have been deposited at the Royal Netherlands Academy (Koninklijke Nederlandse Akademie).

Permission to publish material from the unpulished papers of J.M. Burgers must e obtained from the Burgers family.

Custodial History and Acquisition Information

Mrs. Anna Burgers, widow of Dr. Burgers, donated the collection to the University of Maryland in 1981. Dr. Jan Sengers donated additional materials in 2006.

Processing Information

Processed by:

Processed by Martin Collins and Betsy Parkin, August 1985. Additional addendum incorporated by Valerie Vanden Bossche, December 2006.

Processing note:

Martin Collins, a student in the history of science, began the processing of the collection in 1982-1983 under the auspices of the Institute for Physical Science and Technology, which also provided financial support for the initial states of the project. Betsy Parkin, A HiLS student, continued Collins' work and completed the arrangement and description of the papers.

Initially, a box inventory of the collection was completed, pulling all duplicate materials, removing paper clips and staples (when possible), and replacing original folders with acid-free. After establishing a general order, the series were developed and defined, following the original order of the papers as much as possible. The materials were reorganized and jumbled files forted into existing series. Reprints that were not written by Burgers or did not directly relate to Burgers' research, transparencies, and all but a few photographs of unidentified graphs and wave patters were discarded. Magazine currently held by the University of Maryland College Park Libraries were discarded (see Appendix A); others were placed in Series XI. The papers originally held numerous requests for reprints of which all but a random sampling were discarded. The slides and remaining photographs were isolated and placed in the final series with separation sheets marking their original locations. Finally, all folders were labeled, boxed and the guide written. Only folders containing materials in Dutch have been marked (**); however, the collection also contains materials in Russian, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.

A small amount of correspondence was added to the collection in 2006.

Series 5: Texts and Important Articles, 1918-1978 (7.75 linear feet)

Contains drafts, notes and various versions of Experience and Conceptual Activity, Flow Equations for Composite Gases, Het Atoommoddel van Rutherford-Bohr, Causality and Anticipation," "Statistical Problems connected with Asymptotic Solution of the One-dimensional non-linear diffusion equation," "Flow in Spherical Layers," and reviews for Physics of Fluids. Also included are copies of "Ervarig en Conceptie," possibly an earlier version of Experience and Conceptual Activity or "Experience and Conception." These articles have been separated from Series IV because they either represented preliminary chapters of an unpublished text or provided groundwork for chapters in Burgers' existing textbooks. The files in this series are grouped by publication.
