Biographical Note

David Sterrett Pindell received his B. A. (1895) and PAE (Proficiency in Applied Engineering, 1897) from The Johns Hopkins University. He left Baltimore after graduating, and became a consulting engineer in White Plains, New York.

Scope and Contents

The collection consists of one notebook of notes on lectures delivered by Henry A. Rowland. Pindell attended Rowland's course on electricity and magnetism (1896-1897), and the notes reflect the content of this course. These notes, along with those kept by W. J. A. Bliss, provide the best record of Rowland's classroom lectures.

Provenance

The notebook was found in the Gilman Hall stacks in 1973 and transferred to the Manuscripts Department. At that time it was placed with the Rowland papers. In 1988, it was decided to make it a collection in its own right.

Related Materials

The notes of W. J. A. Bliss are also available in MS.0110.

The Henry Rowland papers are filed under MS.0006.

Processing Information
