ARLINGTON, MA, October 30, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to present Henry Teofil Wadzinski, PhD, with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. An accomplished listee, Dr. Wadzinski celebrates many years' experience in his professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes he has accrued in his field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
Dr. Wadzinski accumulated over three decades of professional excellence as a physicist before retiring in 1994. After contributing for the first two years of his career abroad at the Laboratory Aime-Cotton in Orsay, France, he returned to the United States, where he secured a position as a senior analyst for the Smithsonian Astrophysics Observatory, a research institute of the Smithsonian Institution headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Over the next two-and-a-half decades, Dr. Wadzinski secured employment as both a physicist and analyst with Bedford Research Associates in Bedford, Massachusetts, and as a physicist in the Air Force Laboratory at Boston College. In retirement, he continues to conduct research and is presently concentrating his studies on general relativity.
Recognized for his talents in the field, Dr. Wadzinski was a member of the science panel for Project STAR at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics from 1988 to 1994 and the advisory board of Project Insight between 1990 and 1995. He also lent his expertise as an advisor for various courses at the Harvard Extension School and the University of Massachusetts Lowell. Outside his vocation, Dr. Wadzinski supported the Boy Scouts of America in Arlington, Massachusetts, as a volunteer from 1980 until 1996. He also served on the board of directors of the Arlington Youth Visit Exchange Program between 1989 and 1995.
Born in Nanticoke, Pennsylvania, Dr. Wadzinski developed an interest in astronomy before he attended college, which was partly due to his mother being a high school science teacher. After graduating from secondary school, he was accepted to Harvard College, where he received a Bachelor of Arts, magna cum laude, in 1960. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Wadzinski achieved a Master of Arts at the University of California Berkeley in 1963, and a Doctor of Philosophy in physics at Johns Hopkins University in 1968.
Dr. Wadzinski has been aligned with several industry-related organizations to support his career, including the American Physical Society, the American Geophysical Union, the American Association for the Advancement of Science and Sigma Xi. In 1974, he was recognized with the Skylab Achievement Award from NASA. A celebrated Marquis listee, Dr. Wadzinski has been cited in the second edition of Who's Who in Science and Engineering.
