Sir Mark Oliphant was an eminent Australian physicist and one of the founders of ANU. He was also the founding Director of the Research School of Physical Sciences and held this post from 1950-1963. In 1981 John Carver (then Director of the School) introduced Founder's Day. This event was to be held on or near Mark Oliphant's birthday in October. It was intended was to bring the whole school together in a day of celebration: it is now a much anticipated annual event. It consists of entertaining and informative talks on the School's achievements during the year, and an opportunity to tour the School facilities. While mainly for current School staff, students and visitors, the invitation list extends to former School members and distinguished guests who are presented with a 'show and tell' of the School's research.

We look forward to seeing you all there.

On behalf of the Director
