Invited Speaker / Conférencier invité Nuclear Physics / Physique nucléaire (DNP-DPN) (R2-1) Erich Vogt Memorial Session I - DNP-PPD-DTP / Session à la mémoire d'Erich Vogt I - DPN-PPD-DPT


Prof. Michael Craddock (University of British Columbia & TRIUMF)


Erich Vogt made two major contributions to science in Canada: one, through more than 40 years of teaching, was to inspire generations of students to take up physics; the other was the creation of TRIUMF, where he led the initial funding campaign and later guided its development from a regional to a fully national laboratory with an international reputation. In both cases it was his ability at championing a cause that was crucial to success. This talk will focus on TRIUMF, particularly the early years and his later efforts on behalf of KAON.
