New American Colleges and Universities Fellow Adds to Science Lore

J. Burton Kirkwood, professor of history at the University of Evansville in Evansville, IN, used his sabbatical as a New American Colleges and Universities fellow at North Central during fall term 2010. While observing the College’s senior administrative leadership, he also researched North Central’s rich legacy in the sciences and its many distinguished alumni. Among his favorite discoveries was the fact that a North Central science graduate was present at the first nuclear chain reaction in 1942.
