Creation Date



Physics search expands RU's drive to recruit new faculty. News&Notes 1993, vol.3, no.17

Dr. E.G.D. Cohen was invaluable at lectures, conferences, and meetings. His questions, sometimes numerous, were insightful and penetrating. Speakers would often learn something beneficial to their work, such as suggestions for new ideas and directions to consider, when questioned by Dr. Cohen.

He was passionate about education and sharing his knowledge. He spent time as a visiting professor at several universities over the years, including the University of Florida, the University of Delaware, the Australian National University, and a handful of institutions in Europe. In addition to English and Dutch, he spoke German, Italian, and French, which he learned by studying a dictionary while hiding out during the war.
