Description
Papers of Norman Arthur Baily (1915-1992), medical physicist, who devoted his career to radiological physics and engineering, focusing on medical imaging, experimental and theoretical work in dosimetry, and therapeutic uses of radiology. The collection includes memos and correspondence relating to medical physics organizations and Baily's editorial work for Medical Physics, lecture notes for his teaching at UC San Diego, and drafts and reprints.
Background
Norman Arthur Baily (1915-1992), was born in New York. He completed a B.A. in science at St. John's University in 1941, an M.A. in education at New York University in 1943, and a Ph.D. in physics at Columbia University in 1952. Baily devoted his career to radiological physics and engineering. He was recognized as having made equally strong contributions to research, teaching, and the medical physics profession. His research focused on the use of diagnostic tools for obtaining images of organs and their functions, particularly those using ultrasound which avoided the use of ionizing radiation, and for improving the safety of techniques that did require ionizing radiation.
