This resource is an unprecedented effort to bring together and organize available knowledge about physicists and the institutions they worked for, and we believe the resource to be as authoritative as any. Nevertheless, it is likely that there is some information that is wrong. We welcome corrections, please use the feedback form below. Unless you are a scientist correcting your own profile, please provide us with a source so that we can verify the information.


This is an expanding resource and while we will not add individual physicists by request, we welcome suggestions for what criteria we can use to expand the Physics History Network in the most useful ways. If we have missed someone who fits currently used criteria, please let us know. Also, we are constantly adding new references to published and archival historical resources, but if you have a particular suggestion for a sources that ought to be added, do let us know.
