The morning of Thursday, Sept. 22, 2016 promised to be perhaps the last warm day of the year.
At 10:00am, on the east lawn, the Department of Physics and Astronomy held a ceremonial tree planting in memory of the late physicist John David Jackson, a London boy who became a giant in the field of physics.
Department Chair Bob Sica commenced the planting ceremony for the healthy looking red maple tree by reciting the wording for a plaque which commemorates David Jackson's career and his impact on the world of physics.
The plaque reads:
Taking part in the soil turning ceremony were the two most recent Lillian Margaret and Walter David Jackson Scholarship winners, Sivayini Kandeepan, and Cameron Hopkins.
Note that a memorial service for J. David Jackson was held in Kensington, California on Sept. 24, 2016. [program from memorial service (pdf)]Last updated on and
