Scope/Content: Hugh Everett's thesis was ultimately published in September 1957 in a special issue of Reviews of Modern Physics, guest edited by Bryce DeWitt. In mid-May, 1957, Everett's thesis was already finished and he had passed the oral examination. The paper was already scheduled for publication, but John Wheeler apparently had some last minute changes to recommend. Scope/Content: This document was found in the basement of Mark Everett in 2007 by Mark Everett and Peter Byrne.
