Includes programs, correspondence, agendas, etc. Only documents of obvious NBS administrative origin or destination are included here. While most if not all of Meggers' research took place within the parameters of his work at NBS, the research materials and manuscripts are in a separate series see Series V, Writings and Research Materials. Most of the correspondence concerns photographic plate sensitizing work he began in for application to spectroscopy, and much is with the Eastman Kodak company. Contains correspondence and other materials about particular projects, articles, etc.

Some original order has been lost; documents with no obvious relationships were moved to more relevant series, or to folders containing materials on specific research subjects, such as the mercury lamp which Meggers developed at NBS. Writings by others are typescripts with annotations. Includes manuscripts by Charlotte Moore, Arthur S.
King, G. Racah, and Henry Norris Russell. Includes manuscripts for talks and speeches given by WFM.
WFM was asked to write biographies of some of the scientists he knew. He also collected photographs and autographs of Nobel prize winners in physics see the American Institute of Physics Meggers Gallery of Nobel Laureates. Arranged alphabetically by name and chronologically therein. Includes manuscripts and typescripts, correspondence, data, graphs, tables.
Arranged alphabetically by element name and chronologically therein. Contains correspondence with the Welch Scientific Co. Correspondents include M. Welch, and Glenn M. Hobbs of Welch Co. Includes materials relating to his work in developing photographic emulsions for infrared photography used in aerial reconnaissance; the "Chart of Electromagnetic Radiations"; the mercury lamp and wavelength photographs; and other photographs.

Also includes unsolicited "crank" scientific theories he received. WFM started a lifelong practice of taking photographs as a young man, mounting them in scrapbooks. He progressed to home movies later on see related collection, "Home movies of William Meggers" in the Niels Bohr Library.
He also documented his professional and personal travels and meetings in scrapbooks.
The later scrapbooks contain ticket stubs, menus, photographs, currency, clippings, programs and letters. Some of the scrapbooks contain materials that relate to documents in Series III, Professional Affiliations, specifically some of the European meetings. Ephemera unrelated to other materials are included in this series. During initial processing in the s, some of the scrapbooks were disassembled and the original page order was lost.

The scrapbooks in better condition remain intact. Subjects include college sports, campus scenes, student life, and special events. Also includes scenes of other places in Wisconsin, including Madison, the Wisconsin Delles, Green Lake, and railroad sites. Photos were removed from scrapbook pages in the s and have been sleeved individually and organized by subject.

In the s many photos were removed from the original pages and notations were transferred to back of photos with ink. Some of the photos were trimmed to remove residue from album pages, and some tears were repaired with scotch tape during this time. Original order was lost.
