Physics Club

The Colloquium series of the Yale Physics Department is called the  Physics Club. The name dates to the late 1890s, the era of J Willard Gibbs, who  influenced  the intellectual life at Yale through a number of “graduate clubs”.  He was one of the founders of the Mathematics Club which originated in 1877; he served as its executive officer for ten years.  The Physics Club first met on the evening of Oct. 31, 1899, with 13 in attendance.   Ever since, Physics Club  has met regularly through each academic year, though in a break with tradition, we do no meet on the evening of Halloween.  (Reference: Suha Gürsey, The History of Physics at Yale 1701-1970 (c) 2000.)
