ESVA Collection galleries
In 1958, William F. Meggers gave the American Institute of Physics (AIP) his collection of photographs of 33 Nobel Laureates in spectroscopy and related fields, many of them signed.
Dr. Ronald Mickens donated a photographic collection of distinguished African-American physicists in 2009.
Samuel Goudsmit donated more than 150 images to ESVA along with the larger donation of his papers to the Niels Bohr Library and Archives.
ESVA's namesake, Emilio Segrè, was a noted physicist, historian of physics, and amateur photographer. Over 300 of his photos are now available in this collection.
The American Institute of Physics has ten Member Societies and each year ESVA collects the portraits of new Member Society Presidents.
