Oral history interview with Mildred Allen, 1979 June 18.
Born in Massachusetts in 1894, the elder of two daughters of an MIT professor of civil engineering. Graduated from Vassar College in 1916 with training in mathematics and physics; Ph.D. in physics (1922) at Clark University with Arthur Gordon Webster, with thesis research done at MIT; taught at Mt. Holyoke, Wellesley and Oberlin Colleges during the 1920s and early 1930s; studied further at the University of Chicago and at Yale University. Research at the Bartol Foundation, 1927-1930, and at Harvard University, 1931-1933; teaching at Mt. Holyoke from 1933 until retirement in 1959. Additional research, most recently (paper published 1971) on the behavior of torsion pendulums especially during solar eclipses. Also prominently mentioned are: Frank Allen, Percy Williams Bridgman, Henry Gordon Gale, Hiram Hadley, G. Stanley Hall, Erwin J. Saxl, William Francis Gray Swann; American Physical Society, Faculty Club of Harvard University, National Education Association, New Mexico State University, Swarthmore College, University of Chicago, and Summer Symposium in Theoretical Physics at University of Michigan.
