Melba Newell Phillps
Fundraiser and Dinner
Join us for an elegant reception in honor of the life and legacy of
Melba Newell
. Melba Phillips was the first female president of AAPT. Robert Oppenheimer’s
first student to receive a degree in theoretical physics, she researched radar
countermeasures during WWII. She was the co-author of two textbooks in science:
“Electricity and Magnetism” with Wolfgang Panofsky, and “Principles of Physical
Science” with F. Bonner. Her service to AAPT was long and varied, including a stint
as Acting Executive Officer of AAPT from 1975-77. The net proceeds from this event
will help to endow the Melba Newell Phillips Medal established in her honor to
recognize creative leadership and dedicated service to AAPT. A portion of the dinner
