The T. F. Torrance History of Science Collection (#2022-ou-1) is growing…

Short-term travel fellowships are available.

In October and November 2023, I was able to meet with a number of supporters of the Torrance Collection in Paris, England, and Scotland. I presented at the Firbush Torrance Retreat, meeting additional Torrance-interested persons there. Numerous additions to the Collection were made. Of particular note was a substantial donation from Bob and Jamie Walker of more than 50 books and some papers (the oldest book is Antonius Walaeus, Opera omnia (Lugduni Batavorum, 1643), 2 vols, which belonged to T. F. Torrance). See the list of materials received.

During my sabbatical (January-June 2024), I am working on a number of Torrance-related projects, including the oral histories, several articles (e.g., see handouts above), and a Love and the Cosmos book project (Preface PDF).
