Duke HPS would not be here today without our supporters, researchers, and professors at Duke and abroad.

Seymour Mauskopf (pictured below) is one such person. He was featured in the Duke Chronicle's "Dear Old Duke" series as "a professor emeritus of history whose research has been focused on the history of science. For a ten-year stint—including the time in which the original photo was taken—he studied the history of parapsychology. Now, he teaches part-time and is finishing up a book on Alfred Nobel and his rivals over the discovery of munitions." Read his departing lecture, reflecting on his research at Duke.
