← Back to The Passing of a Scientific Giant: Norman F. Ramsey (1915-2011)


Portrait of Norman Ramsey sitting in the dining room of his home in Brookline, Massachusetts, March 9, 2006. Hanging on the wall behind him, a pair of framed documents — a photo of Dr. Ramsey being congratulated by the King of Carl XVI Gustav of Sweden and a copy of the certificate announcing his Nobel Prize for Physics in 1989. In this photo, Dr. Ramsey is seen thumbing through his book Molecular Beams that he had just signed for me — now a cherished volume in my own collection. (Photo by the Author.)
