Discoveries at Fermilab - The Top Quark

A look back in time: Dzero Spokespersons in 1995

Hugh E. Montgomery Full-sized image.

Hugh E. Montgomery, Fermilab staff physicist, serves, with Paul D. Grannis, as spokesperson for the DZero experiment collaboration. The collaboration elected him spokesperson in November 1993. Dr. Montgomery did his undergraduate work at Manchester University in England and received his Ph.D. in physics from the same institution in 1972. He then served on the scientific staff of Britain's Daresbury Nuclear Physics Laboratory and Rutherford High Energy Laboratory until 1978. From 1978 to 1983 he was a staff member at CERN, the European high-energy physics laboratory on the French-Swiss border. He was the spokesperson for the European Muon Collaboration from 1981 to 1983. After joining Fermilab in 1983, Dr. Montgomery served as the head of the Computing Department (1984-87) and the deputy head of the Research Division (1988-1991). He held the position of spokesperson for Experiment 665, "Muon Scattering with Hadron Detection," from 1987 to 1989.

Paul Grannis has served as the spokesperson of the DZero experiment from its inception in 1983, and as a guest scientist at Fermilab since 1985. He was the original member of the DZero collaboration. After earning an undergraduate degree from Cornell University, Dr. Grannis received a Ph.D. in physics from the University of California at Berkeley in 1965 and then worked there as a research associate. In 1966, Dr. Grannis joined the faculty of the State University of New York at Stony Brook, where he became professor of physics in 1975. Dr. Grannis is a fellow of the American Physical Society. He shares the position of DZero spokesperson with Hugh E. Montgomery.
