his role in the development
of physics, in addition to the
Nobel Prize, have included

Soon after obtaining his
doctorate in 1927, he went to

Europe where the "new
physics," based on Eins-
tein's relativity theories and
the quantum theory of
behavior on the atomic
level, was taking shape.
On his return to Columbia
in 1929, he became a cham-
pion of the new physics and
helped set the stage for the
epochal developments that
followed, culminating in the
release of atomic energy. It
was in the basement of a
Columbia laboratory that
such a release was demon-
strated on this side of the
During last weekend a
symposium on the role of
science in contemporary
society was conductea in

included several Nobel lau-
reates, and the present and
former Presidential science
The university president,
Dr. William J. McGill, also
announced the creation of a
physics professorship in Dr.
Rabi's name.
Dr. Rabi won his Nobel
Prize in 1944 for his discov-
ery of the resonance method
of determining the magnetic
properties of the atomic
nucleus. From 1952 to 1956
he was chairman of the
General Advisory Com-
mittee of the Atomic
Energy Commission.
Among his many other roles
on the national scene was
the chairmanship of the Sci-
ence Advisory Committee to

man of the Suez Canal

traffic through the canal
