Scope/Content: In the early 1970s, physicist and philosopher of physics Max Jammer began working on a follow up to his classic 1966 book, The Conceptual Development of Quantum Mechanics. Jammer hoped that the new book, The Philosophy of Quantum Mechanics: The Interpretations of Quantum Mechanics in Historical Perspective (1974), could contain some additional information on the Hugh Everett interpretation. Here he writes to Everett with some questions concerning Everett's intellectual development and the historical context in which Everett developed his interpretation.
Scope/Content: This document is a reproduction of a document found in the John A. Wheeler papers at the American Philosophical Society.
