About the Author:

Dr Ernest M Henley received a B.E.E. in Electrical Engineering from the City College of New York. Between 1948 and 1951 he worked at Stanford University, and received a Ph.D. from UC Berkeley in 1952. Until 1954, he was a Jewett Fellow and lecturer at Columbia University, and later a professor at the University of Washington. From 1979 to 1987 he was Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences there and Director of the Institute for Theoretical Nuclear Physics in 1990-1991. He has been Professor Emeritus since 1995. He also teaches Physics at the University of Washington's Transition School and Early Entrance Program. Since 1979 Dr Henley has been a member of the National Academy of Sciences. In 1992 he was president of the American Physical Society, where he chaired the Nuclear Physics section from 1979 to 1980.

Dr J Gregory Dash earned his BS from City College, NY, in 1944. He earned his PhD in Physics in 1951, working on the subject of superfluid helium. He remained interested in this topic throughout his career. After his doctorate, he joined the scientific staff of Los Alamos National Laboratory and worked there until 1960 when he took a position as Associate Professor at the University of Washington. After retirement, he remained active in research as Professor Emeritus, and continued to teach, in collaboration with Ernest Henley, at the UW Transition School for gifted high school students.
