Fritz London Memorial Lecture

Fritz London Endowment Fund

In December 1972, John Bardeen, two-time winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics, established an endowment fund at Duke University "to perpetuate the memory of Fritz London, distinguished scientist and member of the Duke faculty from 1939 to the time of his death in 1954, and to promote research and understanding of Physics at Duke University and in the wider scientific community". Specifically the fund is to be used to (1) underwrite the Fritz London Memorial Prize, given in recognition of outstanding contributions in Low Temperature Physics and (2) provide support for the London Memorial Lectures at Duke University.
