Donald Glaser becomes a lecturer in the Physics Department of the University of Michigan, where he is promoted to a professor in 1957.
In addition to his professorship for Physics Donald Glaser becomes professor for Molecular Biology at the University of California, Berkeley in 1964. He studies the control of DNS synthesis in bacteria, which is important for cancer research.
Donald Glaser and Ruth Bonnie Thompson get married in 1960. They have two children, Louise and William.
Donald Glaser is appointed as a professor of Physics at the University of California, Berkeley, in 1959.
Donald Glaser attends the Cleveland Heights High School.
Donald Glaser is primarily researching the elementary particles of physics. Furthermore, he constructs several diffusion cloud chambers and parallel-plat spark counters. Glaser's work results in the invention of the bubble chamber. In the following he develops different types of bubble chambers for tests in high-energy physics.
After teaching mathematics at the Case Institute of Technology in spring of 1946, Donald Glaser studies at the California Institute of Technology. There he researches the momentum spectrum of high energy cosmic ray and mesons at sea level through an experimental study and earns his PhD in autumn 1949.
Donald Glaser studies physics and mathematics at the Case Institute of Technology and gains his B.Sc. in 1946.
Donald Glaser is awarded the 1960 Nobel Prize in Physics for his invention of the bubble chamber.
Donald Glaser is born in Cleveland, Ohio, to his parents William J. and Lena Glaser.
