Robert Walton Leonard (1910- ) joined the Department of Physics faculty at UCLA in 1941. He taught and researched the physics
of acoustics, and his particular interests were in the mechanics of wave motion and the propagation of sound in gases, liquids
and solidsm, and the generation and measurement of high intensity sound and noises and ultrasonics. The collection consists
of problem sets, laboratory exercises, examinations and book lists for the Physics 114 series of undergraduate courses taught
by Leonard at UCLA. There are also reprint files representing his research interests.
