Is Seaborg's History a history or a "journal?"

The Webmaster has remarked on other pages as to his opinion of Dr. Seaborg's self-serving histories masquerading as "journals."  This particular document has been called both.  It was not written contemporaneously and was first published about a year after Stan Thompson's death.  Of all Seaborg's "journals," this one portrays the most of Thompson's scientific accomplishments although even here, it requires inference.  Without Seaborg's candor in A Chemist's Chemist, those inferences would be much harder to draw. It is impossible not to wonder why Seaborg was so stingy of his praise of Thompson in his professional accounts. Was he hiding Thompson?
