About the Forum on the History and Philosophy of Physics

The Forum on the History and Philosophy of Physics, established in 1980, brings together physicists, historians, and other members of APS with an interest in the history of physics and its impact on culture, education, and physics research itself. The Forum issues a semiannual Newsletter and organizes and sponsors sessions at the March Meeting and April Meeting.

The authors of the letters regarding the founding of FHPP have given their permission to post these letters, except that we were unable to reach Arnold Thackery.
