He was elected FRS in 1971.

The collection includes some biographical and personal material including several autobiographical notes and narratives on his career and scientific interests, written between 1963 and 1994. Also included are publications and editorial papers; correspondence, largely from his retirement years, and material on the founding of the European Journal of Physics, of which he was the first editor.
