W.F. Meggers Gallery of Nobel Laureates
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. The Institute subsequently undertook the task of augmenting the collection to include photographs of all winners of the Nobel Prize in Physics, as well as physicists, who had received a Nobel Prize in other areas (for example, Chemistry or Peace). The Gallery, dedicated to the memory of William F. Meggers, is now displayed on the walls of the hallways outside the Center for History of Physics and Niels Bohr Library & Archives.
