Faculty & Staff

Day Michael A. Day, Professor of Physics; Director of Engineering
B.S., University of Idaho; M.A., University of Nebraska, Ph.D., University of Nebraska, (philosophy); M.S., University of Nebraska; Ph.D., University of Nebraska (physics)

Dr. Michael Day has two doctorates: one in physics, one in philosophy. His thirty-plus publications are in theoretical physics (specializing in anharmonic solids), the history and philosophy of science, and the teaching of physics. During the last several years, he has focused on the views of American Cold War physicists on science and society with extensive work on Robert Oppenheimer, I. I. Rabi, and E. U. Condon. For this research, he was elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society in 2010. He is currently writing a book on Oppenheimer. In addition, he worked for Shell Oil as a geophysicist and spent one year teaching in China. In 1999, he received the Vickroy Award, the College’s highest award for teaching.
