KU Life Member pin

KU Life Member pin

No such pin was available from KU when I completed my Ph.D. in 1964. I went directly into active military service (from reserves) on November 4, 1964. I immediately joined the Alumni Association.

I completed a Ph.D. in nuclear physics under the mentorship of Dr. Francis Prosser (deceased March 20, 2007). Other professors were Ralph Krone and Worth Seagondollar.

A few years ago the physics department planned a kind of reunion, and I was really interested. I bought my ticket, made reservations, etc. Shortly before the event I received a curt notice that “sorry for the inconvenience, but the event is cancelled.” Thanks, Physics Department for incurring that cost to me.
