Illinois Physics Department Donates Photo Collection
Daniel Alpert, Downhill Skiing, Urbana-Champaign Physics Department.
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
(UIUC) has had a top-notch physics department
since the 1920s. Recently the Emilio Segrť Visual
Archives has received an outstanding collection of
photographs from the Physics Department of the
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. With
the understanding that AIPís efficient system will
make the photos widely accessible, Celia Elliott,
the departmentís Director of External Affairs and
Special Projects, transferred approximately 1,500
photos showing many distinguished physicists who
have taught, studied, or visited there.

|The collection contains photos of such notable
physicists as John Bardeen, Frederick Seitz, Hans
Frauenfelder and many others. We are currently
cataloging the collection and placing scans online.
We now have more than 10,000 photos online, for
sale at cost.
