The Lorentz Theory of Electrons and Einstein's Theory of Relativity
Goldberg, Stanley
Amer J Phys, 37, 10, 982-994, 69 Oct
Traces the development of Lorentz's theory of electrons as applied to the problem of the electrodynamics of moving bodies. Presents evidence that the principle of relativity did not play an important role in Lorentz's theory, and that though Lorentz eventually acknowledged Einstein's work, he was unwilling to completely embrace the Einstein formulation and thereby reject the other.
