Biographical Note

Alfred Schild (1921-1977) was a mathematical physicist specializing in relativity and gravitation at the Carnegie Institute of Technology (1946-1957) and the University of Texas at Austin (1957-1977). He was named one of the first Ashbel Smith professors in 1963 and cofounded the first Texas Symposium on Relativistic Astrophysics. He was also one of the founders of the International Committee on Gravitation and General Relativity, the Center for Particle Theory, the Center for Statistical Mechanics, and the Center for Relativity Theory at the University of Texas. His work concentrated on foundations of relativity, quantization, algebraically special solutions, and conformal techniques. His later research dealt particularly with Fokker action principles and string models of particles.


Scope and Contents

Papers document the career of Alfred Schild and largely concern his research on relativity and gravitation. There are notes, manuscripts, and correspondence relating to his book Tensor calculus (1949), written with J.L. Synge. Schild's work in the founding and administration of the UT Center for Relativity and the Texas Symposia on Relativistic Astrophysics is represented. There are also records of his consulting work with Gulf Research and Development. Most of the material is from his years in Texas and the collection is especially strong in documenting the formation and activities of the Texas group of relativists. Some student course notes from his doctoral studies at the University of Toronto are included. Correspondents include P.A.M. Dirac and L. Infeld. Included are notes and drafts for publications, seminar papers, lecture and teaching notes, grant proposals, literary productions, reprints, photographs, and a sound recording.
