Warren E. Henry

                      " Warren E. Henry, PhD'41, is a physicist world-renowned for his
                       accomplishments in research on cryogenics and magnetism who has
                       spent nearly seven decades working in the fields of magnetism and
                       superconductivity. He is a former student and colleague of George
                       Washington Carver, and taught physics to the first classes of black
                       aviators, he was known as the Tuskegee Airmen, while at the Tuskegee
                       Institute. As one of the most eminent black scientists in the nation's
                       history, he has been a role model for thousands of African Americans.
                       Elected a fellow in the American Physics Society, he chaired the
                       Society's Committee on Minorities in Physics."

                           During Professor Henry's three decades of teaching and research
                       at Howard University, he was published in over one hundred national
                       and international journals and books. He was the advisor to many MS
                       and PhD candidates, and encouraged his students to co-author
                       numerous papers with him. His students recall the benefits of his keen
                       mind, structured intellect, and controlled discipline. Since his
                       retirement, Professor Henry has continued to participate in the life of
                       the campus, working with students and faculty on various projects and
                       programs. His distinction has brought Professor Henry significant
                       recognition. Two conferences on magnetism have been held in his
                       honor. In 1997, Professor Henry was the recipient of Howard
                       University's Lifetime Achievement Award.
