Professor Bunny Clark, K-State Alumnus, Retires

Professor Bunny Clark recently retired as Ohio State University Distinguished Professor. Bunny had a long and distinguished career in physics and early on got her B.Sc. at K-State.  Bunny, along with husband Tom, moved to Handford where her theoretical calculations were classified and therefore could not be published in publicly available journals.  She was one of the first to push for adopting a relativistic approach to nuclear physics calculations and was eventually proven to be correct in this approach.  She was elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society in 1984 for her major impact on the field of nuclear physics, and more recently was elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (1996).

During her long career, Bunny was active and very effective on issues related to the education of women and under-represented minorities, and the advancement of women and under-represented minorities in physics.  This was reflected in the many positions she filled in the American Physical Society including past Chairs of the Division of Nuclear Physic and Committee on the Status of Women in Physics.
