Caption: Ferdinand Graft Brickwedde (1903-1989), US physicist. Brickwedde obtained his undergraduate degrees and doctorate (1925) from Johns Hopkins University. He then worked for the US National Bureau of Standards, rising to lead its Heat and Power Division in 1946. From 1956, he was Dean of the College of Chemistry and Physics at Pennsylvania State University, where he was emeritus professor from 1963. In 1931, working with Harold Urey and others, Brickwedde helped produced the hydrogen samples used to observe its heavy isotope, deuterium. This discovery resulted in the 1934 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for Urey.
