Weisskopf, Victor Frederick, 1908-2002
Oral history interview with Victor Frederick Weisskopf, 1963 July 10.
This interview was conducted as part of the Archives for the History of Quantum Physics project, which includes tapes and transcripts of oral history interviews conducted with ca. 100 atomic and quantum physicists. Subjects discuss their family backgrounds, how they became interested in physics, their educations, people who influenced them, their careers including social influences on the conditions of research, and the state of atomic, nuclear, and quantum physics during the period in which they worked. Discussions of scientific matters relate to work that was done between approximately 1900 and 1930, with an emphasis on the discovery and interpretations of quantum mechanics in the 1920s. Also prominently mentioned are: Hans Albrecht Bethe, Niels Henrik David Bohr, Max Born, Paul Ehrenfest, James Franck, Werner Heisenberg, Fritz Houtermans, Lev Davidovich Landau, J. Robert Oppenheimer, Wolfgang Pauli, Rudolf Ernst Peierls, Lǒn Rosenfeld, Erwin Schrd̲inger, Otto Stern, Hans Thirring, F. Uhrbach, Gregor Wentzel, Eugene Paul Wigner, E. J. Williams; Kbenha vns Universitet, Universitt̃ Gt̲tingen, and Univeristt̃ Wien.
