Ne w Mexico Laboratory Receives Donation The Langmuir Laboratory for Atmospheric Re- search recently received a generous bequest from the estate of Kenneth Langmuir, which was made in honor of Kenneth's father Irving, for whom the laboratory is named. Irving Langmuir (1881-1957) worked most of his professional life at the General Electric Research Laboratory in Schenectady, New York, and received the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1932 for his work on surface chemistry, which included his well-known work on monomolecular films. He also made impor- tant contributions in a variety of other fields, such as scientific education, philosophy of science, structure of matter, flow of heat in gases and gas-filled incan- descent lamps, chemical reactions at high tempera- tures and low pressures, high vacuum phenomena, electric discharges in gases, and meteorology and re- lated fields. In meteorology, Langmuir is well known for a number of contributions: 1) calculations of water droplet trajectories and the growth of particles by col- lisions; 2) multicylinder method for finding cloud droplet size distributions and liquid water content; 3) Irving Langmuir (left) and Bernard Vonnegut (upper right) studies of coalescence of water particles in warm watch Vincent Schaefer blow into a freezer to make
