Tom's personal web page.
Thomas Greenslade came to Kenyon in 1964 and taught physics for 41 years. His favorite courses were electronics, oscillations and waves, and physics for non-science students, although he taught essentially all of the courses in physics offered by the department.
His field of research is the study of historical physics teaching apparatus, and he has a personal museum of physics artifacts in his home and maintains a web site of apparatus that he photographed elsewhere. Many of his 215 publications and 150 lectures at meetings and other institutions are on this topic and the history of photography.
He served five terms as the chair of the Committee on the History and Philosophy of Physics of the American Association of Physics Teachers, from which he received a Distinguished Service Citation. He was a faculty member at the University of the West Indies in Jamaica and Kansas State University during sabbatical leaves, and was the principal lecturer for the Harvard summer school course in physics in 1984-86. For many years he was the sponsor of Kenyon physics courses in preparatory schools in Cleveland, and he organized and taught six intensive summer school sessions for high school physics teachers at Kenyon.
