Frederick Seitz Dies at 96

The name "Frederick Seitz" should be very familiar to anyone who has studied Solid State Physics. Seitz is one of the instrumental figures in Solid State Physics and may even be one of its founding fathers.

This distinguished physicist passed away this past March 2nd, 2008. Our modern civilization, in no small part, has be shaped by his work.

Thank you, and rest in peace.
