Physicist To Speak for Saxon Lecture Series

 

Dr. Roy Campbell

This year’s Saxon Lecture Series on the campus of Southwestern Adventist University will begin Saturday, Nov. 16 with physicist Dr. Roy Campbell. His topic for Saturday afternoon’s presentation is “Finding Deep Down Beauty in God’s Creation: The Search for the Higgs Boson.” The lecture will take place on Sabbath afternoon at 4 p.m. in the Wharton Auditorium.

Dr. Campbell has a Ph.D. in theoretical particle physics from Florida State University. He taught physics and astronomy at Southwestern for 17 years and is currently teaching at Walla Walla University. He has held NASA fellowships in high energy astrophysics and won teaching awards both here and at Walla Walla.

The annual Saxon Lecture Series is the brainchild of George Saxon, retired physics professor from Southwestern, who promoted the series and supported it financially with the goal of promoting scholarly discussion on science and religion. Running since 2007, the series has featured topics such as Galileo, John Harvey Kellogg, evolution, dinosaurs, Ellen G. White, and the new atheism.
