Clifford Ambrose Truesdell III (19192000) was born in Los Angeles, California, on
February 18, 1919. He was educated at the California Institute of Technology
(B.S., mathematics and physics, l941; M.S., mathematics, 1942), Brown
University (Certificate in Mechanics, 1942), and Princeton University (Ph.D.,
1943). Truesdell worked briefly at the University of Michigan, the Radiation
Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the Naval Ordnance
and Research Laboratories, before taking positions at Indiana University (19501961)
and The Johns Hopkins University (l9611989). Truesdell's primary research
interest was rational mechanics, a branch of mathematics involving the
mathematical formulation and deductive study of the concepts of mechanics.
He published numerous books and papers in several areas of rational
mechanics, including continuum mechanics, statistical mechanics, and
thermodynamics. Truesdell wrote extensively on the history of rational
mechanics, especially of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. He
founded three journals: Journal of Rational Mechanics and Analysis (cofounder,
1952), Archive for Rational Mechanics and Analysis (founder, 1957), and Archive for History of Exact Sciences (founder, 1960). Truesdell died on January
14, 2000.

Papers are chiefly drafts and proofs of Truesdell's publications,
often with several drafts of the same publication. Few publications prior to
1965 are represented; unpublished manuscripts date to 1942. Also included
are lists and texts of public lectures and notes on Truesdell's courses, both
dating to 1942, and Truesdell's student class notes. Biographical
and autobiographical writings and reminiscences by and about Truesdell are
included, along with summaries of Truesdell's correspondence with his
associates J. L. Ericksen, W. Noll, and R. A. Toupin. Included are correspondence,
lecture and course notes, lists of publications and lectures, drafts, galley
and page proofs, grant proposals, reports, reprints, and photographs. The
collection was transferred in l984 from the American Institute of Physics Niels
Bohr Library in New York. The container list was prepared by Truesdell and
constitutes a commentary on the papers.
Forms part of the Archives of American Mathematics.

Note by Truesdell: 




The postscript on the fifth draft, deleted here, was later
restored. At my request the second draft was refereed and checked for
correctness by someone unconnected with Noll or me. When I discovered that
Rivlin and his sycophants made a different error in each of their papers, I
recalled the accepted manuscript for revision. The final draft was also, at my
request, checked and refereed.

Series 4  Lectures on foundations of kinetic theory and
statistical mechanics 

Note by Truesdell 

Notes on the course first given in 1950/1951 and more or less
biennially for more than twenty years thereafter; after the first time these
notes were simultaneously drafts of a book of the same title, never completed
as such. 

This course was my first course at Indiana University. The topic
had been requested by Gilbarg. Among the students in 19501951 were Serrin and
Ericksen. The final examination is bound in at the end of the notes. On that
examination Serrin did original research on the methods of Hilbert and Enskog
and got the grade A+. Noll and Morgenstern studied these notes, especially in
my seminar in the summer of 1954, and Morgenstern followed the course itself in
19541955, during which Morgenstern improved Khichin's proof of Boltzmann's
law. Noll's paper "Die Herleitung der Grundgleichungen der Thermomechanik der
Kontinua aus der statistischen Mechanik," 1955, grew from a report he gave in
the seminar of 1954; so did the two papers by Morgenstern, and so did several
papers by Ikenberry. This course and related seminars gave rise to all of my
papers in its field, including:
 Number 45, "On the viscosity of fluids according to the
kinetic theory," 1952
 Number 78 (coauthor E. Ikenberry) and 79, "On the
pressures and the flux of energy in a gas according to Maxwell's kinetic
theory," 1956
 Number 96, "Neuere Entwicklungen in der klassischen
statistischen Mechanik und der kinetischen Gastheorie, ausgearbeitet von D.
Morgenstern," 1958
 Number 121, "Ergodic theory in classical statistical
mechanics," 1961
 Lecture five of number 153, Six
Lectures on Modern Natural Philosophy, 1966
 Essay six in number 165, Essays in
the History of Mechanics, 1968
 Lectures 810 of number 169, Rational
thermodynamics, 1969
 Number 170, "A precise upper limit for the correctness of
the NavierStokes theory with respect to the kinetic theory," 1969
 Number 186, Mathematical aspects of
the kinetic theory of gases, 1973
 Number 198, "Early kinetic theories of gases," 1975
 Number 214, "Correction of two errors in the kinetic theory
of gases which have been used to cast unfounded doubt upon the principle of
material frameindifference," 1977
 Number 224, coauthor R. G. Muncaster,
Fundamentals of Maxwell's kinetic theory of a simple
monotomic gas, treated as a branch of rational mechanics, 1980


Still in my hands are the notes of the last version of the course
itself, which I had hoped to write up some day as an elementary introduction to
the material in publications number 121 and 224 along with an exposition of
some of the more recent researches on equilibrium statistics.

Series 8  Materials connected with
The Tragicomical History of
Thermodynamics, 18221854, (Publication 225) 

Note by Truesdell 

While writing the fifth draft, here preserved, I came to think
that Reech's ideas could form the basis of a modern axiomatic treatment. That
idea led eventually to the book by Bharath and me, Concepts and Logic,
publication number 213, drafts of which are included in another part of this
collection. From 1973 onward I developed both books alternatingly. Between 1973
and 1979 the manuscript The Tragicomical History went through many drafts, at
least four. Each of those was made by altering the sheets of the preceding
draft. Numbers eight, nine and ten, preserved by accident, provide
specimens.

Series 9  Materials connected with
Fundamentals of Maxwell's Kinetic
Theory, publication number 224,
1980 

Note by Truesdell 

The text of this book is of three origins: 1. Truesdell's ideas
deriving from the notes for his lectures for his biennial course, beginning in
the august of 1950, from his publications number 45 (1952), 78 and 79 (1956),
170 (1960) and 124 (1977) and his multiplied lectures at Rio de Janeiro (see
below). 2. Mucaster's Ph.D. thesis at Johns Hopkins (see below) 3. Work done by
Truesdell and Mucaster in collaboration starting in 1973 or 1974 and continuing
through the page proofs of the book. Much of the material went through ten to
twenty drafts, or even more. Each draft was made by correcting the sheets of
the preceding draft, and at each stage the old manuscript was destroyed.
