Description

This is the first in a series of “Photo Log” books. It provides a continuing record of optical and SEM photographs requested by members of the engineering staff. Data recorded includes; photo #, mount style, date, magnification employed, description of the device or task, and the requesting engineer’s name (the customer). Many of the photographs are mounted in the respective engineer’s notebooks. These records could be used to identify the products and type of analysis being undertaken by the customer engineers during this period.

Wandry authored 10 volumes that were used as log books to record details of tasks performed. Several books serving different purposes were maintained concurrently. The others are: 260, 471, 472, 473, 781, 825, 904, 1399, and Work.
