Harold E. Rorschach giving a physics demonstration, Rice University
Coleman, Thomas A.
Dr. Harold E. Rorschach, Professor in the Physics Department, Rice University, giving an in-class demonstration using a looping apparatus. He is wearing a white shirt with the sleeves rolled up, his arms are lifted above his head and he appears to be snapping his fingers. The height of both the blackboard on the right-hand side of the image and the wall behind him suggest that the demonstration is taking place in an auditorium setting. Original resource is a black and white photograph.
Dr. Harold Rorschach joined the Rice faculty in 1952 after completing his studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and served as chairman of the Physics Department from 1966-73 and 1991-1993. From 1967-1979, he was the principal investigator in the NASA interdisciplinary laboratory at Rice, which conducted research involving a wide range of studies on solid materials. He was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1961, won Rice's George R. Brown teaching awards six times, and was a Fellow of the American Physical Society.
