J. L. Synge, Is the study of its history a brake on the progress of science?, Hermathena 91 (1958), 20-42; prefaced with a page from H. S. M. Coxeter’s book, Introduction to Geometry (2nd ed.), Wiley (1969), which has on it some particularly memorable lines—this is my favourite quotation!—from this rousing speech. (See also pp. 13-14 of my paper “213, 16A” and Mathematics.)
E. R. van Kampen, Komplexe in euklidischen Räumen, Abhandlungen aus dem Mathematischen Seminar der Hämburgischen Universität 9 (1932), pp. 72-78; Berichtigung, ibid., pp.152-153. (To someone who has been telling everyone since the eighties – see also List – that this flawed and forgotten paper was van Kampen’s best, it is gratifying that now most everyone is of the same opinion!)
Sita Ram Kohli, Catalogue of Khalsa Darbar Records, vol. I, Lahore (1919) & volume II, Lahore (1927). The records still survive ... but instead of building on this pioneering work, which took Kohli a decade to accomplish, we in Incredible India have somehow managed to undo it to a large extent : see The Forgotten Koh-i-Noors of Ranjit Singh.
