Professor Max Hargreaves was the inaugural appointment to the chair of Physical Metallurgy, University of Melbourne, in 1964. A small collection of personal papers including correspondence, publications and photographs was assembled from materials held by his widow, his former secretary and the CSIRO Archives. Unfortunately most of his papers were destroyed shortly after his premature death in 1976.
