David Ritz Finkelstein
(July 19, 1929 - January 24, 2016)
This site is maintained in commemoration of the life and work of David Ritz Finkelstein. The structure of the website loosely follows the structure of the exhibit, Bold Ideas in Physics: Celebrating David Ritz Finkelstein
, that was sponsored by Georgia Tech's School of Physics and the College of Sciences. Held in the Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons, the exhibit opened on January 23, 2017, and remained open for several weeks. The opening coincided with the first annual Frontiers in Science
lecture in honor of Finkelstein's legacy in physics.
As echoed in the panels above, the exhibit consisted of three kiosks. The first focused on Finkelstein's scholarly contributions in physics. The second focused on his work and life outside of the academy. The third focused on discoveries in physics that further work Finkelstein contributed to during his life.
