Henry Teofil Wadzinski, a Retired Physicist, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Scientists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in physics and astronomy.
One of Dr. Wadzinski’s earliest memories is watching a lunar eclipse with his mother, a science teacher. He has been hooked on astronomy ever since then, and is thrilled that his career has allowed him to contribute to the field. Dr. Wadzinski started out as a physicist for the Aime-Cotton Laboratory in France, and then moved to the U.S. to become a senior analyst at the Center for Astrophysics (now the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics), a physicist and analyst for the Air Force Geophysics Laboratory at Bedford Research Associates, and a physicist at Boston College. Now, he serves as a member of the science panel for Project STAR through the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
Dr. Wadzinski prepared for his endeavors by earning a Bachelor of Arts from Harvard College in 1960, a Master of Arts from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1963, and a PhD from Johns Hopkins University in 1968. He furthered his knowledge by attending advisor courses at the University of Massachusetts Lowell and the Harvard Extension School, and attending seminars at Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Tufts University. To keep in touch with his peers, he joined prominent professional organizations like the American Physical Society, the American Geophysical Union, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, The New York Academy of Sciences, and Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Honor Society. His efforts earned him the Skylab Achievement Award from NASA in 1974.
