1. Leon M. Lederman - Autobiography
Honorary D.Sc's have been awarded to leon M. lederman by City College of New York,University of Chicago, Illinois From nobel Lectures, Physics 19811990.
I.I. Rabi.

The Columbia Physics Department was constructing a 385 MeV Synchrocyclotron at their NEVIS Laboratory, located in Irvington-on-the-Hudson, New York. Construction was aided by the Offce of Naval Research and "NEVIS" eventually proved to be an extremely productive laboratory, as judged by physics results and students produced.
I joined that project in 1948 and worked with Professor Eugene T. Booth, the director of the-cyclotron project. My thesis assignment was to build a Wilson Cloud Chamber. Rabi invited many experts to Columbia to assist the novice staff in what was, for Columbia, a totally new field. Gilberto Bernardini came from Rome and John Tinlot came from Rossi's group at MIT. Somewhat later, Jack Steinberger was recruited from Berkeley. After receiving my Ph.D. in 1951 I was invited to stay on, which I did, for the next 28 years. Much of my early work on 1 ions was carried out with Tinlot and Bernardini.
In 1958, I was promoted to Professor and took my first sabbatical at CERN where I organized a group to do the "g-2" experiment. This CERN program would continue for about 19 years and involve many CERN physicists (Picasso, Farley

The aim of this project, lead by the nobel Prize leon lederman, is to develop a coherent, modular threeyear high school science curriculum.
Project ARISE
ARISE Home Bibliography Why Change Course Sequence
More students need more science!
How about a three-year standards-based program . . .
  • where learning science is something ALL students do, not something that is done to them?
  • where ALL students develop scientific knowledge and habits of mind through inquiry?
  • where ALL students need opportunities for an in-depth engagement in science?
Let's turn the course sequence upside down. Making it hang together from one year to the next will educate a student who is more comfortable with science, technology and the science way of thinking. ARISE Reports: Three-Year High School Science Core Curriculum Framework The State of Physics-First Programs Three-Year High School Science Core Curriculum Implementation issues (These are PDF files.

Leon M. Lederman - Nobel Laureate 1988
Dear Mr. Macri, I was both surprised and amused at the new bureaucratic restrictions you have placed on the scientists at INFN. In Italy which created the modern period of scientific research, one doesn't treat scientists like production workers in a factory. Can you see Enrico Fermi punching a time clock? There are effective ways to measure scientific productivity; times clocks are not the way. Leon M. Lederman Physics Nobel Laureate 1988

Lederman, Leon Max
Leon M. Lederman, 1983 Kevin Fleming/Corbis (b. July 15, 1922, New York, N.Y., U.S.), American physicist who, along with Melvin Schwartz and Jack Steinberger , received the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1988 for their joint research on neutrinos Lederman was educated at the City College of New York (B.S., 1943) and received his Ph.D. in physics from Columbia University, New York City, in 1951. He joined the faculty at Columbia that same year and became a full professor there in 1958. He was director of the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Ill., from 1979 to 1989. From 1960 to 1962, Lederman, together with his fellow Columbia University researchers Schwartz and Steinberger, collaborated in an important experiment at the Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island, N.Y. There they used a particle accelerator to produce the first laboratory-made beam of neutrinos elusive subatomic particles that have no detectable mass and no electric charge and that travel at the speed of light. It was already known that when neutrinos interact with matter, either electrons or electron-like particles known as muons (mu mesons) are created. It was not known, however, whether this indicated the existence of two distinct types of neutrinos. The three scientists' work at Brookhaven established that the neutrinos that produced muons were indeed a distinct (and previously unknown) type of neutrino, one which the scientists named muon neutrinos. The discovery of muon neutrinos subsequently led to the recognition of a number of different "families" of subatomic particles, and this eventually resulted in the standard model, a scheme that has been used to classify all known elementary particles.

Leon M. Lederman
Ed Home TMP Home Sampler Index
Leon M. Lederman , internationally renowned high-energy physicist, is Director Emeritus of Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Illinois and holds an appointment as Pritzker Professor of Science at Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago. Dr. Lederman served as Chairman of the State of Illinois Governor's Science Advisory Committee. He is a founder and the inaugural Resident Scholar at the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy, a 3-year residential public high school for the gifted. Dr. Lederman was the Director of Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory from June 1, 1979 to June 30, 1989. He is a founder and Chairman of the Teachers Academy for Mathematics and Science, active in the professional development of primary school teachers in Chicago. For more than thirty years Dr. Lederman has been associated with Columbia University in New York City, having been a student and a faculty member there. Professor Lederman was the Eugene Higgins Professor of Physics at Columbia from 1972­79 and served as Director of Nevis Laboratories in Irvington, Columbia's center for experimental research in high-energy physics, from 1962­79. With colleagues and students from Nevis he led an extensive and wide-ranging series of experiments that provided major advances in the understanding of particles and interactions, thus contributing significantly to what is known as the "standard model." Major experiments included the observation of parity violation in decay of pi and mu mesons, the discovery of the long-lived neutral kaon, the discovery of two kinds of neutrinos and the discovery of the upsilon particle, the first evidence for the bottom quark. His research was based upon experiments principally using the particle accelerators at Nevis Labs, Brookhaven and Fermilab, although he has carried out research at CERN (Geneva), Berkeley, Cornell and Rutherford (England). His publications exceed 300 papers and he has sponsored the research of 52 graduate students.

    Survival Depends on the Race Between Education and Catastrophe A greatly underrated crisis looming over us was predicted by the futurist H. G. Wells. In about 1922 he commented that survival would depend on the race between education and catastrophe. The justification for this profound foresight can be seen in the incredible violence of this century we have survived, and the newfound capacity of mankind to obliterate the planet. Today, although political rhetoric extols education, the educational system we have cleverly devised and which is in part a product of the wisdom of our founding fathers defies reform. It is a system incapable of learning from either our successes or our failures. th century, the most scientifically productive century in the history of mankind. Revolutions in all these and other disciplines have changed the fundamental concepts and have created a kind of hierarchy of sciences; the discovery of the atom, quantum mechanics, nuclear sciences, molecular structures, quantum chemistry, earth sciences and astrophysics, cellular structures and DNA. To all of this, the high school system was unmoved. th and 10 th grade French together!

    Nobel Laureate Leon Lederman to give Rustgi Lecture Sept. 13
    News Services Editor Science, from its ancient beginnings to the present, will be the focus of "Miletus to the Supercollider (With a Pause at the Big Bang)," a lecture to be given by Nobel Laureate Leon M. Lederman on Friday, Sept. 13, on UB's North Campus. The lecture, geared toward a lay audience, will be the fourth in the Rustgi Memorial Lecture series. Free and open to the public, it will be held at 4:30 p.m. in Room 201 of the Natural Sciences Complex. The lecture will review the history of the quest to learn how the world works, starting with the origins of science in the ancient Greek town of Miletus and proceeding through the Standard Model of quarks and leptons to the union of particle physics and cosmology. Lederman, now director emeritus of the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Ill., is internationally renowned for four decades of groundbreaking work in particle physics. In 1961, his research group discovered the muon neutrino, which provided the first proof that there was more than one type of neutrino. He received the Nobel Prize in Physics for this work in 1988. In 1977, his group discovered evidence for a new elementary particle, called the bottom quark.

    News Services Editor With hand-drawn charts, slides of cartoon stick figures and some playful jibes at deans, graduate students and those responsible for the death of the Superconducting SuperCollider, the man who is probably the most important physicist alive today took only 60 minutes Friday evening to relate the whole story of physics. Nobel Laureate Leon M. Lederman, now director emeritus of the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, presented the whirlwind crash course in a talk, "Miletus to the SuperCollider (With a Pause at the Big Bang)," that was the fourth in the Rustgi Memorial Lecture series. The discoverer of the muon neutrino and the bottom quark addressed an SRO crowd in Room 201 of the Natural Sciences Building. He noted that it was in Miletus, an ancient city on the west coast of Asia Minor, that the basic ideas of science had their roots. "Let's start science," Lederman quipped, alleging to quote some of the prominent thinkers of the day. And so mythology, which he described as "the best science of the time and a literature of splendid proportion and depth," was put aside in favor of a logical explanation to the world.

    leon M. lederman nobel Prize in Physics, 1988 Resident Scholar, Illnois Mathematicsand Science Academy Director Emeritus, Fermi National Accelerator
    Coping with the Consequences of our Own Ingenuity
    The scientific revolution in the 20th century entered a new phase; it became universal, the unique world culture, laced with optimism, adventure and passion. The associated technologies - advancing hand-in-hand - can make us comfortable, immortal, enabling access to a vast ocean of knowledge and bringing us, in our living room and at the squeak of a mouse, all the works of literature (soon in any language); also all of the art, music, philosophy, all the summaries and analyses of history, the values weighed and accumulated in every epoch, in every place on the globe. The paradox lies in the indifference of our populations to so much of this. A part of the blame stems from the inequities in the distribution of these comforts and capabilities. But even in the populations of industrial nations, the glories of humanity's achievements are drowned in a sea of trivialities, of mindless and passive entertainment. We are inundated by a tide of unsustainable consumerism. The wonders of nature revealed pass us by. Thus we lose the value of the heritage of older experiences, we lose the exposure to the spiritual beauty of nature, but we also lose the personal empowerment that comes from scientific thinking. That ignorance and hostility towards the use of intellect and reason, and this is the most chilling of all paradox, is vested in our leadership at a time in our history when need for marshalling vast thinking skills is most required. This is the best yet evidence of the failure of education.
