Biographical Note

Henry Hazlehurst Wiegand [1858?-1943] was trained as an electrical engineer. He entered the Johns Hopkins University in 1880 and received his B.A. in 1885. He continued his studies at Hopkins and was awarded a P.A.E. (Certificate of Proficiency in Applied Electricity) in 1888. Wiegand did further graduate work in electricity in 1894 and 1895. He remained in Baltimore where he manufactured engines and boilers.

Scope and Contents

The collection consists of 20 notebooks of student class notes or laboratory notes dating from 1876-1906. The notebooks also contain clippings and printed material on related topics. A brief description of each notebook is in the containter list. Wiegand studied under Henry A. Rowland and Louis Duncan, and there are notebooks from their lectures. There is also a volume of notes [1880s?] entitled "Electricity and Magnetism" taken by Gustav Adolf Liebig. Liebig was a fellow in physics when Wiegand was a student at Hopkins. The notes are possibly from Rowland lectures. Another notebook (l904) contains data on experiments with a process of color photography developed by Wiegand and a Mr. [Ludwik?] Silberstein. It was apparently different from the process patented by Hopkins physicist Robert W. Wood.

Immediate Source of Acquisition

The 20 notebooks were a bequest of Henry H. Wiegand to the University on March 23, 1944.
