University of Chicago physicist Melba Phillips, 1907 to 2004, forged a career in science at a time when few women did so, and even took on leadership roles among her peers both as an educator and as a scientist with a social conscience.
She lost two jobs from New York institutions during the McCarthy era for refusing to testify against friends and colleagues before a U.S. Senate subcommittee.
As an educator, Phillips developed and implemented training for physics teaching at all grade levels and led a movement to improve physics teacher preparation.
Phillips career got off to a fast start after she became one of the first doctoral students of J. Robert Oppenheimer, who led the effort to build the first atomic bomb. She received her doctoral degree in physics under Oppenheimer s supervision in 1933 at the University of California, Berkeley.
In 1935, Phillips and Oppenheimer offered an explanation for what was at the time unexpected behavior of accelerated deuterons (nuclei of deuterium, or heavy hydrogen atoms) in reactions with other nuclei. This explanation became known as the Oppenheimer-Phillips effect and is considered one of the classics of early nuclear physics.
Dr. Phillips wrote two textbooks, Principles of Physical Science, with Bonner, and Classical Electricity and Magnetism, with W.K.H. Panofsky, which became widely used for undergraduate and graduate physics training.
From 1966 to 1967 she served as the first woman president of the American Association of Physics Teachers.
Dr. Phillips earned her bachelor s degree in mathematics from Oakland City College of Indiana. She received her master s degree in physics in 1928 from Battle Creek College of Michigan, and her doctorate from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1933.
