Creighton University Presents the “Physics Antique Roadshow”

Tom Greenslade, Ph.D., one of the foremost experts on antique physics apparatus, will present "The Creighton Physics Antique Road Show," from 12:30 - 1:20 p.m., March 2 in room G59 of the Hixson-Lied Science Building during Creighton University’s Department of Physics colloquium.

Some of Creighton University’s antique apparatus, which includes items from the 1886 Interstate Exposition in Omaha, will be on display in a nearby room.

The author of more than 200 articles, Greenslade writes on the history of physics, as well as giving lectures, demonstrations and laboratory experiments developed at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, where he served on the physics faculty from 1964 to 2002.

Greenslade serves as chair of the committee on the History and Philosophy of Physics of the American Association of Physics Teachers, which awarded him a Distinguished Service Citation in 1987 and in 2002 listed him as one of the 75 most influential physics teachers and physicists in the United States
