Faculty History

On this page we collect information about past Princeton faculty members whose doings, for one reason or another, are of historical interest.

The department, like the science of physics, has changed dramatically over the years and we hope these pages will help history buffs get some sense of what life in physics was like, “back then”. Physics has been changing at warp speed, so “back then” need not be so long ago and you may actually know some of the people on this page. If you have suggestions for materials we might add to this section, please send email to the webmaster.
