Abstract : An unexpurgated historical synopsis is given of the author's role in the early applications of nmr to chemical problems, with emphasis upon the importance of chance, serendipity, ignorance and faculty clubs. Several research areas are discussed, including the broad line-shapes in solids and their motional narrowing, fluorine and proton chemical shifts, multiplets in liquids, chemical exchange, and an unsuccessful search for the esr of conduction electrons. A brief account is given of some current work in which chemical exchange rates are being determined from the dependence upon resonance frequency of the coalescence temperature for several N,N-dimethylamides.
