SPEAR Notes 1969-1982 (includes some PEP Notes)

The SSRL SPEAR Storage Ring has been the site of the discoveries which led to the award of the 1976 and 1995 prizes in physics, and of the 2006, 2009 and 2012 prizes in chemistry.

From 1969 through 1982, the collaboration constructing the SPEAR facility at SLAC produced the following numbered notes (links in citations are to full-text scans. Please contact the Archives and History Office to determine availability of unscanned Notes):
