I had two research advisors in graduate school. Their lineage is given below.
|Gary E Mitchell||Edward G Bilpuch 1927-2012
PhD UNC-Chapel Hill 1956
BS UNC-Chapel Hill 1950
Director of Triangle Universities Nuclear Lab
Proton-induced resonance reactions.
|Leo James Rainwater 1917-1986
Nobel Prize Physics 1975 as seen on the
James Rainwater - Biographical.
Collective and Single-Particle Motion in the Nucleus
|John Ray Dunning 1907-1975
PhD Columbia 1946
BA Nebraska Weslean 1929
Verified fission measurements of Hahn & Strassman.
Demonstrated that slow-neutron induced fission occurs
in 235U rather than 238U.
|William D Harkins 1873-1951
PhD Stanford 1907
Nuclear chemist Involved in several diverse fields of
physics and chemistry. Suggested that the abundance
of elements in stars was a nuclear effect (1917).
Coined the word 'neutron' which was later discovered
in 1932 by Chadwick. Built cyclotron at FermiLab which was used in neutron diffusion studies (1936). Proposed the alpha-particle model of nuclei.
|also with: Enrico Fermi 1901-1954 PhD Univ. Pisa 1922 Nobel Prize Physics 1938 as seen on the The Nobel Prize in Physics 1938 page.||George B Pegram 1876-1958
PhD Columbia 1903
BA Trinity College (predecessor of Duke)
Early measurements on 'secondary radioactivity'
(later known as fission products).
Many stints as Dean. Was known for enabling science at Columbia by recruiting many of the known Columbia
research faculty and providing resources.
|Robert E Swain 1875-1961
PhD Yale 1904
BS Stanford 1898
|Luigi Puccianti 1875-1952 PhD Univ Pisa 1898 Spectrograph. Correlated IR spectra with molecular structure. Proposed measuring wavelength of x-rays by using a grating at large angles.||Lafayette B Mendel
PhD Yale 1893
BS Yale 1891
Biochemist studying Vitamin-A, Vitamin-B, lysine, tryptophan.
|Angelo Batelli 1862-1916 PhD Univ Turin 1884 Founded Italian Physical Society. Measured temperatures and heat of fusion for ...||Russell H Chittenden 1856-1943
PhD Yale 1880
BS Yale 1875
Physiological chemistry relating to digestion & nutrition.
|Andrea Naccari 1841-1919 PhD math Univ Padva Thermoelectric properties of metals. Photoelectric effect on metals immersed in liquids. Electrical conductivity in gases.||Wilhelm Kuekne 1837-1890
MS Goettingen 1856 Chemistry under F. Woehler
MS Goettingen 1856 Physiology under R Wagner
Physiology of muscle & nerves.
Chemistry of digestion.
Chemical changes in the retina under illumination.
Known for coining the word 'enzyme'.
