Robert Meservey, award-winning physicist, dies at 92

An award-winning physicist at MIT, Robert Meservey also was a respected photographer and such an adept outdoorsman that he was an instructor with the Army’s legendary 10th Mountain Division during World War II.

“He was a champion in every sense of the word,” said Jagadeesh Moodera, a senior research scientist who worked for many years with Dr. Meservey in the physics department at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
