* July 1, 1935 Physical Review E. J. Konopinski and G. E. Uhlenbeck On the Fermi Theory of Beta Radioactivity
* August 15, 1941 Physical Review E. J. Konopinski and G. E. Uhlenbeck On the Fermi Theory of Beta Radioactivity II: The “Forbidden” Spectra

Part 2 of the K-U modification for "forbidden" beta decay spectra. It led to the expectation of a tensor form in Gamow-Teller decays, which is what RR later confirmed. Later work proved both K-U and RR to be incorrect.
