Biographical or Historical Information
However, at the start of World War II, Warfield and Tiedeman left the Women's College (now the University of North Carolina at Greensboro) to join the war effort. In 1941, Anna Joyce Reardon, a PhD graduated from St. Louis University, replaced the two men as the head of the University's physics department. She worked at the University until her retirement in 1965. She was seceded by Clifton Bob Clark who helped to greatly expand the influence and development of the department. This included the establishment of a Master's degree program in 1967.
In 1975, Clark stepped down and was replaced by Gaylord Hageseth. Stephen Danford, an astronomer, join the Department in 1976. Eventually in 1986, the Department changed it name and became the Department of Physics and Astronomy.
