Youth and family origins; student days at Amherst College, 1924-1928, and at Ann Arbor 1928-1931. Contact with European physicists and rising Nazism, 1932-1933; the physics departments at Ohio State University, University of Pittsburgh, Princeton University in the 1930s, and Johns Hopkins University in the 1940s; atomic spectroscopy, ferromagnetism, uses of the vector model, shift from atomic to nuclear spectroscopy, the Thomas precession and spin-orbit coupling in nuclei, shell and droplet models for nuclei, intermediate coupling model for light nuclei, the earth's magnetic field, wind-dynamos and nuclear reactors; Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory during World War II, Argonne National Laboratory in the 1950s and 1960s; expression of social concern, especially in relation to the nuclear arms race, in the 1950s through the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, the political victimization of Donald Flanders, the Federation of American Scientists, congressional testimony concerning Lewis Strauss' (nominee for Sec. of Commerce) experiences at Pugwash Conferences, obstacles to slowing or reversing the arms race.
