The lecture notes deposited by Dr. Rhodes comprise the complete set of his lecture notes whilst a student at the University of Liverpool. With the exception of several pages (pp.i-xiv) in D353/1, which are typescript with manuscript additions, all of Dr. Rhodes' lecture notes are in pen and ink. As noted, there are generally two or more sequences of paginated notes per subject, each sequence being immediately followed by the next sequence. The names of the lecturers are given where noted.
For further details of the courses Dr. Rhodes took, see the Faculty of Science Prospectus of Courses for Sessions 1946-47 to 1948-49.
Dr. Rhodes confirms that his lecture notes were written up shortly after the lectures were delivered.
As regards D353/1 and 2 (lectures delivered in Session 1946-47), Dr. Rhodes believes that Mr. E. Edwards, Lecturer in Physics, was involved on the Physics side, and both Dr. A.K. Holliday (Assistant Lecturer [in Inorganic and Physical Chemistry]) and Dr. W.B. Whalley (Lecturer in Organic Chemistry) were involved in Chemistry.
