Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Department of Physics records

 Collection
Identifier: AC-0068
Abstract Physics was taught at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology from the time classes were first offered in 1865. William B. Rogers, the founder and first president of MIT, was the first professor of physics. In 1869 Rogers established the "Physical Laboratory," probably the first laboratory for instruction in physics in the United States. In 1872 the lab was renamed the Rogers Laboratory of Physics. Physics became Course VIII in 1873. The collection consists of reports on research written by...

Victor Frederick Weisskopf papers

 Collection
Identifier: MC-0572
Abstract The collection documents the professional life and career of Victor Frederick Weisskopf (1908-2002) from the 1920s through 2002. Educated in Europe in the 1920s and 1930s, Weisskopf made contributions to the quantum theory of radiative transitions, the self-energy of electrons, the electrodynamic properties of the vacuum, and the theory of nuclear reactions. In 1943, several years after his move to the United States, Weisskopf was invited to join the Manhattan Project, where he served as...
