Alfred Schild (19211977) was a
mathematical physicist specializing in relativity and gravitation at the
Carnegie Institute of Technology (19461957) and the University of Texas at
Austin (19571977). 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.
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.
