Project Jukebox Survey
Help us redesign the Project Jukebox website by taking a very short survey!
Originally from Butte, Montana, Glenn Shaw studied physics in college and was involved in wave tube research in California and Arizona before coming to Alaska in 1970 for a job as a professor of physics at the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF). He taught courses on atmospheric chemistry and cold and aerosol physics, and much of his research focused on arctic haze, atmospheric chemistry, and climate change. He retired in 2004, is currently Emeritus Professor of Physics at UAF, and in 2011 published a memoir, Fingerprints on the Moon: My Life in Physics. In 2000, he participated in the morning storytelling session at the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and shared some of his memories of working there in the early years.
