Women in Physics

Lee graduated from NYU, just after WWII, with a physics major and a math minor. At Stanford, she earned an MA in physics. Lee began her career at Sperry, designing microwave vacuum tubes. But her working life did not follow the expected path.

Main Presentation:
The Planning, Design, Construction, and Life Experience of the Very Tall Building
Speaker: Leslie Robertson

Leslie spoke to us a year ago, in what was one of the most satisfying, provocative talks we've had. Robertson is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and Distinguished Member of the American Society of Civil Engineers. For his professional and civic contributions, Les has received numerous honors, including the IABSE International Aware of Merit in Structural Engineering, and the Gengo Matsui Prize of Japan.
