Curtis G. Callan, Jr.,  Physics Department Chair Message from the Chair

he Physics Department would like to invite all returning department majors, survivors of freshman physics and just plain friends of physics to a Reunion event.

As Palmer Hall is transformed into the new campus center, Physics enjoys a new teaching facility, McDonnell Hall. While we miss the rich physics history of Palmer, we are pleased with the modern technology and convenience of our new teaching space. Many useful features of the Palmer lecture halls were incorporated in the McDonnell lecture space, and some new ones were added. David Wilkinson would like to show you and your family a few of the popular physics lecture demonstrations that thousands of Princeton freshmen have enjoyed over the years. Dave is the Cyrus Fogg Brackett Professor of Physics and one of the pioneers in the measurement of the cosmic microwave background radiation. He is also one of Princeton's outstanding teachers and received the 1996 President's Award for Distinguished Teaching. You can expect to be entertained while your minds are stretched. Bring the kids!

I'll take a few minutes at the beginning to give you a quick update on how the people and research of the department have evolved since you left. Afterwards, please join us for a reception with refreshments and let us catch up with what you have been doing since you graduated. If you can, email to let us know you are coming.
