Salzman, Freda Friedman, 1927-1981.

Hide Profile

Physicist (Brooklyn College, B.A., 1949; University of Illinois, Ph.D., 1953), Salzman held research positions at the Universities of Wisconsin, Rochester, and Colorado, and in 1965 was appointed with her husband to the original physics dept. of U. Mass., Boston. Two years later the university attempted to terminate her appointment on grounds of nepotism. After a five-year struggle, she was reinstated in 1972 and received tenure in 1975. Salzman was active in Science for the People, particularly its Sociobiology Study Group and Women's Issues Project Group, and also in organizations of women scientists.
