Barus, Carl, 1856-1935.
Life of Carl Barus, 1935.
The autobiography falls into three parts, of which the first and largest covers Barus' ancestry, personal life, and family life in Cincinnati. The second part covers his education and professional life. In it, Barus describes his college years at Columbia University (1874-1876) and his graduate years at Bayerische-Julius-Maximilians-UniversittĖƒ W rzburg, Germany (1876-1880), including his 1879 Ph.D. taken there with Friedrich Kohlrausch. He also discusses his appointment as physicist for the U.S. Geological Survey in 1880, first in Nevada,then in New Haven, CT, and finally in Washington, DC, until 1892; his appointment to professor of meteorology at the U.S. Weather Bureau (1892-1895); his move to Brown University as professor of physics from 1895; and tenure as dean of the graduate school (1901-1926). His committee work (i.e. the committee calling the American Physical Society into being, and his membership on the first National Research Council) is also described. The third part is a summary of scientific works. The controversy with C. T. R. Wilson in the early 1900s is mentioned (with copies of their correspondence).
