Records and Correspondence Relating to the Hodgkins Bequest and Prizes Subsequently Allocated from its Income, 1866-1916.

Type:
Archival materials
Note:
The Hodgkins Fund was created by a gift in 1891 from Thomas George Hodgkins, who directed that one-half its income be used to support research on atmospheric air in connection with the welfare of man. In 1893 the Smithsonian held its first competition for contributions to knowledge on this subject. In later years it also made direct grants from the Fund to support the research of specific scientists.

Summary:
Grants from the Hodgkins Fund, 1891-1916: The Smithsonian seems to have given individual grants and sponsored its prize competitions more or less simultaneously. It is sometimes difficult to be sure which records related to which endeavor. The following records seem to deal chiefly with applications for specific grants. A part of the file is missing.

Summary:
Hodgkins Prize Papers Submitted for the 1893 Competition: In most cases each folder contains both correspondence and a copy of the intended prize essay. Some contain drawings, photographs, or copies of an author's other works. Some essays were returned at the author's request. Authors' names have been supplied when they could be determined with certainty. The rules of the competition allowed contestants to enter under a pseudonym; and some are listed here using that name, since no real name could be found. There is also a register of Hodgkins Fund correspondence, circa 1893-1897, in series 5.
