In 1994, the Health Physics Society produced a calendar for the centennial commemoration of the discovery of X-rays (1885) and Radioactivity (1886). This calendar contained profiles of some of the pioneers in the field of Health Physics and Radiation Science. A special thanks to Paul Frame of ORAU and the other members of the HPS Historical Committee for their work on this calendar. (note: photos will be added as they become available.)
