F. Soto, Jr., Ph.D., Columbia University (Physics), published
in 1967 the last contribution to the Lamb Shift. Professor Lamb
measured this energy shift in hydrogen in 1947 and obtained a
Nobel Prize. Professor Lamb knew that Professor Soto was doing
the calculations and when it was finally completed he asked that
it be double checked as were all the other contributions. Three
groups responded, one in England, one in Germany, and one in Italy.
After this long calculation, which took twenty-eight pages in
the Physical Reviews, Professor Soto switched fields
from Quantum Electrodynamics to Spectrography and Group Theory.
His dedication to fine teaching has made his lecture and laboratory
sections among those sought by undergraduates.
