    This appears to be a rather useful overview of the history of high energy/particle physics. I glanced through it quickly, but can someone who is more familiar with this field of study verify that there's nothing obviously erroneous with this? If there isn't, this could be a very good intro to anyone wishing to go into this field.

    Thanks for the link. We have a qualitative intro into elementary-particles this year. This might come in handy.

    That article looks good to me, at least based on a quick skimming-over. I didn't see anything that clashes with what I remember picking up about the history of the field while I was a graduate student (late 1970s to early 1980s).

    I glanced at it quickly, but it seems quite good. I'll try to read it more closely later.
