Donald Ivey

Professor Ivey was Professor of Physics from 1949 to 1992, and was Principal of New College from 1963-1974.  He was well known outside the physics community as the first host of CBC’s “The Nature of Things”, and many of you may remember his appearance with his colleague Patterson Hume in the classic film “Frames of Reference” (look for it on YouTube).
