Prominent Physicist Schaefer Named Doggett Distinguished Professor
NC State's College of Sciences has named Thomas Schaefer, a faculty member since 2003, as the Wesley O. Doggett Distinguished Professor. The professorship was established by a group of physics alumni, led by Norman Banks, David Montgomery and Lawrence Ives, to honor the late Wes Doggett, one of the first graduates of the university's Bachelor of Nuclear Engineering program and a member of the physics faculty for 35 years. The gifts were supplemented by a match from an endowment established by anonymous donors that supports the activities of a full professor in the Department of Physics.
