    Bio / His Notes: 
    Cady graduated from Brown University (B.Ph., 1895) and the University of Berlin (Ph.D. Physics, 1900). From 1902-1946 he was a professor of physics at Brown. After retirement he did consulting work for industry and the federal government. Cady's principal interests included electrical discharges in gases, piezoelectricity, ultrasonics, piezoelectric resonators and oscillators, and crystal devices.
    Scope and Content: 
    Consists chiefly of Cady's research notebooks on various subjects in physics and a considerable technical reprint file; some records of Cady's consultant work and patents granted.
    Organization: 
    Divided into 11 series: Series 1: Research Notebooks, 1896 1972; Series 2: Chapter Drafts for Piezoelectricity An Introduction To The Theory And Applications Of Electromechanical Phenomena In Crystals, 1945; Series 3: Technical Reprint Files, 1900s-1960s; Series 4: Walter G. Cady's Writings and Reviews, 1950s-1960s; Series 5: Consultant Work, 1931-1967; Series 6: Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE), 1945-1963; Series 7: Institute of Electric and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 1932-1973; Series 8: Patent Records, 1914-1974; Series 9: Books, 1887-1960; and Series 10: Miscellaneous, 1949-1973; and Series 11: Card Indexes, 1940s-1960s.
