Emeritus Associate Professor of Physics 

Illinois Wesleyan University, Bloomington, IL 

B.S., M.S., University of Illinois 

Ph.D., The Optical Sciences Center, University of Arizona 

After retiring from full-time teaching in 1997
I continued the May Term course, created in 1979, Physics 239 - Problems of Nuclear Disarmament, until 2012. Others now continue that course. I could not have taught that course over that many years, repeatedly going over such disturbing material, if I was not an optimist, and if in spite of it all, I didn't enjoy the classroom encounters and think that students found the knowledge gained, valuable, and sometimes, believe it or not, fun. The material related to the course's Global Diversity flag credit can be a pleasant experience for all students.
