Edward D. Lambe, professor of physics at the Long Island Center of the State University of New York, has accepted a one‐year appointment as executive secretary of the Commission on College Physics, beginning September 1. He has been granted a year's leave of absence from his teaching post and will be located at the offices of the Commission on the campus of Bryn Mawr College, Bryn Mawr, Pa. The position of executive secretary of the Commission had been vacant since February of this year, when Lyle W. Phillips, who previously served in that capacity, returned to the National Science Foundation. During the intervening period, Walter C. Michels of Bryn Mawr served as acting executive secretary in addition to his responsibilities as chairman of the Commission. Prof. Lambe, who received his doctorate from Princeton, was formerly an assistant professor of physics at Washington University in St. Louis. Starting in 1959, he shared responsibility with John M. Fowler for the development of a new introductory physics course that is now being offered both at Washington University and at New York's Long Island Center.
