Biography

For a full biography see "John George Trump," by Louis Smullin. In Memorial Tributes: National Academy of Engineering, volume 3 (1989), pages 332-337.

John G. Trump, 1907-1985, BS in electrical engineering, 1929, Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn; MA 1931, Columbia University; ScD in electrical engineering, 1933, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), became a research associate at MIT in 1933, assistant professor in 1941, and professor in 1952. Working with Robert J. Van de Graaff, he designed one of the first million-volt x-ray generators used in cancer therapy.

He was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1950, and to the National Academy of Engineering in 1977.

During World War II John Trump served as a member of the Steering Committee overseeing the U.S. government research laboratory, the Radiation Laboratory, which was located on the MIT campus, Division 14 (radar) of the National Defense Rsearch Committee. This Laboratory was responsible for research and production of radar systems. Trump was also the Head of Division 12, Field Service, in the Radiation Laboratory, as well as the director of the BBRL (British Branch of the Radiation Laboratory) when it was established in 1944 in Malvern, England.

After the war he co-founded, with Robert Van de Graaff and Denis Robinson, the High Voltage Engineering Corporation to manufacture generators for use in nuclear research, industrial processing, radiography, and medicine. Trump directed the High Voltage Research Laboratory on the MIT campus from 1946 to 1980.

The focus of his research was high voltage phenomena, the acceleration of electrons to high energies, and the interaction of radiation with living and non-living matter.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The collection contains the papers of John G. Trump, 1907-1985, professor of electrical engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). It includes material about Trump's study of the use of energized electrons to disinfect municipal sludge; patents issued to Trump and Robert J. Van de Graaff; and information about Trump's involvement with professional associations and other professional activities.

One can also find in this collection administrative and research records of the MIT High Voltage Research Laboratory, which Trump directed from 1946 to 1980.

During World War II, Trump was on leave from MIT serving in leadership positions at the U.S. government radar research laboratory, the Radiation Laboratory, part of Division 14 (Radar) of the National Defense Research Committee (NDRC). Documents relating to his work on the Steering Committee of the lab and as director of the British Branch of the Radiation Laboratory (BBRL) are government records and are held in the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) Northeast region.

In the 1970s John Trump also studied the application of the use of a high voltage accelerator in treating wastewater. An intense electron beam from a high voltage accelerator was used successfully as the deactivating agent in the treatment of municipal wastewater sludge. In pilot plant studies by the High Voltage Research Laboratory, a prototype system erected at one of Boston's wastewater treatment plants demonstrated continuous on-line treatment providing bacterial and viral disinfection.
