|Dr. George A. Snow was a professor of physics at the University of Maryland from 1957-1992. In addition to his work at the University, Dr. Snow's research contributions in experimental and phenomenological high-energy physics had a considerable impact on the field.
Throughout his tenure at the University, Dr. Snow remained committed to advancing and expanding the participation of women in the sciences. Dr. Snow and his wife, Lila, taught the first Women's Studies course at the University in the Spring semester of 1972. In order to honor Dr. Snow's commitment to assisting women in the sciences, his wife and children established, through the University of Maryland College Park Foundation, Inc., an endowed fund at the University of Maryland, College Park, to help advance women in physics.
