Description: Among Hugh Everett's files were a number of handwritten documents related to the writing of his thesis. Most were materials related to the writing of his long thesis, but there were also some handwritten drafts of sections of the revised short thesis. None of the known versions of the long thesis include an abstract, nor does the published version of the short thesis. The thesis submitted to Princeton, however, was required to. This document is one of two distinct drafts of the abstract for the version of the thesis he submitted to Princeton.
