Twenty-five years ago Lord Rutherford prepared his Address as President of the 1938 Session of the Indian Association for the Advancement of Science at a time when nuclear physics was moving rapidly forward. New disintegrations produced by α-particles and by charged particles accelerated in high-voltage vacuum tubes and cyclotrons were being discovered with great frequency, and neutrons, especially slow neutrons, were being used to produce radioactive isotopes of many of the stable elements.
