Abstract:

Lalitha Chandrasekhar (1910-2013) was married to Nobel Prize winning astrophysicist and longtime University of Chicago professor Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar. She was born in Madras, India and spent much of her childhood there. The Chandrasekhars moved to Williams Bay, Wisconsin in late 1936 when he accepted a position at the University of Chicago's Yerkes Observatory. They remained there until 1964, when they moved to Chicago. The Lalitha Chandrasekhar Papers document her life in Williams Bay and Chicago and her travels, mostly in India, the United States, and Europe. They contain personal material such as ephemera from arts organizations and extensive clippings files; correspondence; detailed diaries and chronological files; writing, including essays and notes for talks; material documenting her involvement with progressive political campaigns and contributions to organizations promoting various social justice causes; photographs, negatives, and a small amount of other audiovisual material; and miscellaneous artifacts and framed items.

Biographical Note

Lalitha Chandrasekhar was born Doraiswamy Lalithambal in Madras, India in 1910. Her actual day of birth was September 28, but due to a clerical early in her childhood she was officially assigned the birthday of October 15, and she continued to celebrate that day as her birthday for the rest of her life. She was the third of four daughters of Savitri and S. Doraiswamy – her older sisters were Kanthamani and Shantha, and her younger sister was Radha. Lalitha spent much of her childhood in Madras as part of a joint family unit, surrounded by grandparents, aunts, and cousins from her mother’s side of the family. Her father was a medical officer in the Indian Army and served in the first world war, so he was away for much of her childhood. Lalitha’s mother was one of five daughters, and Lalitha’s aunts Subbalakshmi, Balam, Swarnam and Nithya played important roles in Lalitha’s life.

After her father returned from the war, Lalitha, her parents, and her sister Shantha spent a short amount of time in Bangalore, where her father was stationed at an army hospital. However, her parents were concerned about her education, and she soon returned to Madras to continue with school. A short time later, her father passed away as a result of injuries suffered during the war, and the family returned to Madras and first settled back at the family home, known as Ananda Villas. As a result of her husband’s death from war injuries, Lalitha’s mother was given a pension and financial assistance for her children’s education. Some time later, she used money from the pension to purchase a home in Mylapore, which she called Sri Villas. After renting it out for a few years, the extended family moved there. They later built and moved to a larger set of homes, which they called “The Colony,” nearby.

Lalitha’s family valued education greatly, and she began attending school at the age of three. Her family’s focus on formal education for women was unique for the time and originated in the experiences of her oldest aunt, Subbalakshmi, who was widowed at a very young age. Instead of following the traditional customs of the time for young widows, Lalitha’s grandparents chose to go to great lengths to see that Subbalakshmi was able to pursue an education. She ultimately graduated from college and subsequently worked to support young widows and promote education for women in Southern India. After Subbalakshmi received a formal education, the pattern continued with her younger sisters and then with the next generation of women in the family, which included Lalitha and her sisters.

In 1931, Lalitha completed a BA Honours in Physics at Presidency College in Madras. In an autobiographical essay (“Little Sister: Part II”) she writes that her interest in physics was inspired by two main two sources – the excitement in India over the awarding of the Noble Prize to C.V. Raman and her interest in the scientist Marie Curie. Her family background and the atmosphere in which she grew up also encouraged her to enter a field that was not traditionally available to women. After graduating, she wanted very much to go to England to continue her studies. However, her mother would not agree to this, so she remained in India and completed an LT (teaching degree) from the University of Madras and Lady Willingdon Training College in 1932. She spent the next few years teaching at various institutions, including National High School at Mylapore, Madras, where she taught physics, chemistry, math, and physical education and Lady Hardinge Medical College in New Delhi, where she taught physics. She spent a short time working in a scientific lab at Presidency College and earned a Master’s Degree in Physics in 1934, and then became headmistress of a middle school at Karaikindi. In 1935, she began working in a lab at the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore.

On September 11, 1936, Lalitha married Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, known as Chandra. They had met years earlier when both were physics students at Presidency College and continued their correspondence from 1930-1936 while he spent six years in Europe, mostly at Cambridge University. After their marriage, they spent a short time in England and then moved to Williams Bay, Wisconsin, where Chandra had accepted a position at the University of Chicago’s Yerkes Observatory. The Chandrasekhars lived in Williams Bay until 1964, when they moved to Chicago. Chandra remained at the University of Chicago for his entire career, where he was a highly respected theoretical astrophysicist. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1983.

For the first few years she was in Williams Bay, Lalitha attended lectures given by her husband and other scientists at Yerkes Observatory. However, after a few years she gave up her scientific studies. She felt that they would not be fruitful if she was only able to attend to them on a part-time basis, and her highest priority was to support her husband in his scientific career. For the nearly sixty years of her married life, Lalitha took primary responsibility for managing the Chandrasekhar household so her husband could focus on his academic work.

Lalitha also developed her own interests and pursuits and made her own contributions to the communities she was a part of. In an effort to correct stereotypes and misperceptions about India that she often encountered in America, she traveled around the Williams Bay area and gave lectures on India to local women’s groups, schools, and church groups, covering topics such as music, history, political and economic conditions, and culture. In addition to lecturing, she would often sing or perform on the veena, an Indian musical instrument. In the 1950s she was also involved in the American Association of University Women and various local book discussion groups.

In the early 1950s, Lalitha became a member of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin and began to devote significant efforts to supporting this cause. She collected donations, made telephone calls, knocked on doors, attended rallies, and distributed campaign material on behalf of the candidates she supported. Her enthusiasm for Adlai Stevenson, the Democratic candidate for President in 1952 and 1956, played a large role in the Chandrasekhars’ decision to become American citizens, which they did on October 13, 1953. Her active involvement with the Democratic Party lessened after the 1950s, but she was a lifelong supporter of progressive causes. After the Chandrasekhars moved to Chicago, she became involved in the Civic Disarmament Committee and League of Women Voters, continued to support select political candidates, took art classes, and refocused her efforts on her writing. She continued to provide financial support to progressive political candidates and organizations that promoted social justice issues for the rest of her life. Lalitha Chandrasekhar died in Chicago in 2013.

Series II: Correspondence

Series II, Correspondence, contains Lalitha Chandrasekhar's correspondence, including with family, friends, neighbors, local businesses and service providers, and her husband's colleagues and their families, both at the University of Chicago and within the larger scientific community. Also of note is correspondence with women's organizations, schools, and churches near Williams Bay, Wisconsin that she traveled to to give lectures and performances. Some correspondents have their own folders, while more infrequent ones are grouped in the alphabetically arranged "general" folders following the individual files for each letter. The correspondence ranges in date from 1930-2012.

The correspondence is generally arranged according to the surname of her correspondent or the name of the organization she was writing to, with some exceptions. For instance, Lalitha’s correspondence with her mother is filed under “Mother” and sympathy notes she received after a 1954 car accident and Chandra’s death in 1995 are filed under “sympathies.” Additionally, in some cases, she filed correspondence with family and close friends in India under a single given name. When these letters did not include a surname or family name, they were left filed under the given name of the correspondent.

Of particular note are letters between Lalitha and S. Chandrasekhar dating from 1930-1973, filed under "Chandra." These are mostly letters from Chandra to Lalitha, but also include some that she wrote to him. The largest portion is from 1930-1936, when he was studying at Cambridge University and traveling in Europe and she was studying and working in India. A few letters from Lalitha's family members regarding her relationship with Chandra have been filed with this correspondence. The second largest portion of the correspondence between Lalitha and Chandra is from the World War II years, when he spent time at Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland.

For additional correspondence between Lalitha and Chandra, researchers should see the two folders of "Copies of outgoing letters," from 1937-1946 that have been placed near the end of this series. These copies of letters, made by Lalitha, are not limited to correspondence with Chandra but do contain a significant amount of it.

Series III: Diaries and Chronological files

Series III contains Lalitha Chandrasekhar's extensive diaries and chronological files. It ranges in date from 1936-circa 2007. For many years she kept extremely detailed diaries documenting her daily life and thoughts, and during some years she also kept chronological files containing documents from her daily life such as mailings, programs, ephemera, fliers, and clippings on local events. The series is first arranged by format - it contains two subseries that Lalitha appeared to maintain separately. Both are arranged chronologically, with miscellaneous or undated material placed at the end. In many cases, there is material relating to a particular date in both subseries. Lalitha often appears to have made initial diary notes on note cards or smaller notebooks, and then later expanded on those on larger sheets of paper.

Subseries 1 contains a mix of paper files, notebooks, and planners that fit in typical legal-sized folders.

Subseries 2 contains index cards and smaller notebooks that have been placed in card file boxes.

Series IV: Writing

Subseries I, Essays, contains typescripts and handwritten versions of essays written by Lalitha Chandrasekhar, as well as notes, clippings and related material that she used for inspiration. The essays are almost entirely unpublished, although a few were published in local Wisconsin newspapers, and they range in date from 1943-1998. They cover a wide range of topics. Many are autobiographical and discuss subjects such as the challenges of life as an Indian immigrant in the United States, Lalitha's family and early life in India, and her relationship with her husband. Other essays cover Lalitha's ideas about more general topics, mostly related to politics and social justice. In a few cases the folders contain only clippings or notes but appear to have been filed by Lalitha under "essays," likely indicating that she considered the topic but either did not end up writing or did not save the essay.

The subseries is generally arranged chronologically according to the date Lalitha assigned to each essay, which may have been the date she began it. An exception to the chronological order are several folders relating to a potential biography of her husband that Lalitha long intended to write but never completed, which have been placed together at the end of the subseries.

Subseries II, Talks, contains notes and text for various talks given by Lalitha Chandrasekhar. The material ranges in date from 1942-1999 and is arranged chronologically. It includes notes for talks about life in India that she gave for local schools, churches, and women's groups in the United States; her talk at the unveiling of a bust of Srinivasa Ramanujan, and notes from talks she gave at events honoring Chandra after his death. Researchers should also consult the card file box at the end of Subseries III for additional notes from talks on similar topics.

Subseries III, Notes, ranges in date from circa 1931-2002 and is arranged first by general subject and chronologically therein. The notes cover a variety of topics, but the largest portion cover scientific topics. This includes notes that Lalitha took at conferences and lectures she attended; her notes from Chandra’s lectures at Yerkes Observatory, which she often attended in the 1930s and early 1940s; and notes from science lessons that Chandra gave her, often on occasions when she expressed interest in knowing more about his work. The subseries also includes notes on books and reading, languages, music, world affairs, and miscellaneous topics, as well as a small number of school notebooks.

Subseries 1, Photographic material, contains photographs, slides, and negatives depicting Lalitha Chandrasekhar’s life in Williams Bay, Wisconsin and Chicago, Illinois as well as her travels to India and other locations, mostly in Europe and North America.

Undated material, including several undated family photographs, have been placed at the end of the series. The subseries ranges in date from the early twentieth century to 2013.

Subseries 2, Audio and video, contains a small amount of audio tape reels, audio cassettes, a compact disc, and VHS video cassettes. The audio material appears to mostly feature Indian musical programs or memorials to S. Chandrasekhar, although some are unlabeled. The videos include memorials to Ramanujan and Chandrasekhar as well as a few miscellaneous cultural and artistic topics. The material ranges in date from 1960-2010.
