George Brandenburg

With great sadness that we announce that Doctor George Brandenburg, ex-director of the LPPC, passed away on Saturday.

George graduated from Harvard College in 1965, and received his Ph.D. from Harvard in 1969. After working at Max Planck Institute, Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, and MIT, he became the Director of the High-Energy Physics Laboratory (which is now the LPPC) in 1980. He was also a Senior Research Fellow and Lecturer of Physics. During his 18 years at Harvard, George co-led our research projects with the CDF, CLEO, ATLAS, and BABAR Experiments. He was a Fellow of the American Physical Society since 1992, and served as a co-spokesperson of the CLEO Experiment in 1997-1999.

George was both a prolific scientist and a wonderful friend. We shall miss him.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, October 12, 2013, at 10:30 a.m. at First Church in Salem, 316 Essex St. Salem, MA 01970.
