Dear Alumnae and
On the occasion of the centennial of the American Physical Society
founded in 1899, members from all fields of physics will meet in Atlanta,
Georgia on March 20 – 26, 1999. This meeting will celebrate the accomplishments
of physics in the 20th century and look ahead to the challenges and changes
that face society in the next century. APS members and physicists
worldwide are invited to attend this meeting including some 50 Nobel Laureates.
Since many of our alumni will be attending this meeting, we take this opportunity
to invite you to a Grand Reunion which the APS is organizing for this Centennial
Meeting. The reunion will take place in the Georgia World Congress
Center on Tuesday, March 23, 1999 from 6:00 PM until 8:30 PM.
At this reunion we will welcome alumni, faculty, students and friends
of our department. We would also welcome prospective students who
may be interested in pursuing graduate study at Duke. The reunion
will take place in a designated area that will be shared by the Research
Triangle Universities (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North
Carolina State University at Raleigh, and Duke University). Refreshments
will be served and we hope that many old friendships will be rekindled.
If you plan to come to the Grand Reunion, we urge you to notify the
Department by Fax (919-660-2525), E-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or telephone
(919-660-2501). We look forward to seeing you in Atlanta. If you
cannot attend the meeting we hope you will visit our web site (http://www.phy.duke.edu)
and keep up to date with activities in our Department.
