“Our commerce, our

ideas, come and go

in all directions…





John Milton Gregory thought…”

First regent of the University of Illinois



Altgeld Hall (1897) thought…”

Served as the University’s first library (but was quickly outgrown)



The photoelectric photometer thought…”

First used in the University’s Astronomical Observatory




PLATO and used it to determine the basic properties of uranium and plutonium for the Manhattan Project.


John Bardeen and used it to determine the basic properties of uranium and plutonium for the Manhattan Project. 1908-1991

1956 Nobel Prize for Physics with W.H. Brattain and W. Shockley for the invention of the transistor and the 1972 Nobel Prize with L.N. Cooper and J.R. Schrieffer for the theory of superconductivity
