J. Bruce French, Andrew Carnegie Professor Emeritus of Physics and a leading nuclear theorist, died Friday, February 1.

French joined Rochester as a Jewett Research Fellow in 1950 and became the Carnegie Professor of Phsyics in 1965, retiring in 1992.

Among his achievements was the development of the "shell model" into a theory that provided a way to calculate the properties of nuclei, paving the way for astronomers to understand the energy sources in the cores of stars.

French was a fellow of the American Physical Society and served on many advisory committees in the United States and India. He was awarded a National Science Foundation postdoctoral fellowship, John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship, and had a large number of visiting professorships.

Contributions can be sent in his name to the J. Bruce French Memorial Fund, Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Rochester, Rochester, NY 14627-0171.
