  • Professor Pupin to give “the story of the modern physics”

    The Program Committee of the New York Section of the Institute announces that it has been extremely fortunate in securing Professor M. I. Pupin of Columbia University as the speaker for the New York Section meeting of January 19, 1923. There are few men, who are more familiar with the developments of modern physics than Prof. Pupin and when he undertakes to tell the story of this development it is an assurance of a most enjoyable evening to all who can arrange to hear him. Prof. Pupin is one of the few real orators in the engineers' ranks, and the talk he will give will appeal to specialist and layman alike. The Program Committee therefore urges every member of the Section to take advantage of this opportunity and extends a most cordial invitation to all Institute members of other Sections to attend if possible. The meeting will be held in the Auditorium Engineering Societies Building, 33 West 39th St., New York, at 8 p. m., Friday, January 19, 1923.
