Abstract

In 1935, having finished writing the final volume of his Treatise, Mellor approached Leslie Stuart Theobald (1898-1979), an analytical chemist, to write two supplementary volumes. Mellor had worked with Theobald at the Potteries Laboratories in Staffordshire, and in 1933 was Theobald’s thesis examiner. In this letter Theobald writes of the great cost to Mellor’s health while writing his Treatise and that he personally was loathe to pay the same price. Theobald refused Mellor’s offer many times, maintaining that there was more to life than chemistry.
