Description
Scope/Content: Hugh Everett's long thesis was submitted to John Archibald Wheeler, his doctoral thesis advisor, in January 1956 under the title "Quantum Mechanics by the Method of the Universal Wave Function.''

This document is a scan of the title page of the document that was thus distributed, showing the title "Wave Mechanics Without Probability".
