Overview History of Physics Department at Illinois Institute of Technology By Harold N. Spector, Professor Emeritus, Biology, Chemistry and Physical Sciences 4th Revision, November 2002. The origin of the Physics Department at IIT goes back to the early years of Armour Institute of Technology, which is one of the predecessors of IIT, in 1890. At that time, there were only a few physics departments in the U. S. Some physics faculty from the Armour period who had some renown were W. R Smythe, who wrote a...
Description of the Collection Lantern slides believed to have been used by Prof. John S. Thompson to teach nuclear physics at Illinois Institute of Technology prior to 1951. Most of these slides were commercially-produced, though some were assembled in Chicago and perhaps produced specifically for Thompson's classes, bearing images and graphs he had located in various published works. The slides mainly document the effects, both on buildings and humans, of the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945;...
