I nstitute, by attempting to sketch in outline the history of the origin of the Quantum Theory and to give a brief account of the development of this theory and its influence on the Physics of the present day. When I recall the days of twenty years ago, when the conception of the physical quantum of action was first beginning to disentangle itself from the surrounding mass of available experimental facts, and when I look back upon the long and tortuous road which finally led to its disclosure, this development strikes me at times as a new illustration of Goethe ssaying, that man errs, so long as he is striving .A nd all the mental effort of an assiduous investigator must $indeed appear vain and hopeless, if he does not occasionally run across striking facts which form incontrovertible proof of the truth he seeks, and show him that after all he has moved at. least one step nearer to his objective. The pursuit of a goal, the brightness of which is undimmed by initial failure, is an indispensable condition, though by no means a guarantee, of final success. In my own case such a goal has been for many years the solution of the question of the distribution of energy in the normal spectrum of radiant heat.
