West Long Branch — The late West Long Branch resident Dr. George Brucker, a noted nuclear physicist, was honored posthumously by the Information Age Science and History Learning Center at Camp Evans in Wall Township, for his work in the defense of the United States during the Cold War.
Dr. Brucker was a recognized authority on nuclear radiation effects on electronic systems and for his work in the field of radiological dosimetry, measuring dosages or radiation.
The dedication ceremony was part of InfoAge’s first annual gala, which held to raise money in order to develop an interactive learning center focused on information age technologies at historic Camp Evans.
Dr. Brucker and his partner, Dr. Stanley Kronenberg, were among the first honorees of the InfoAge “Wall of Honor,” where they joined Dr. Walter S. McAfee, an astrophysicist, and Fred Carl, the founder of InfoAge.
InfoAge built the “Wall of Honor” memorial to inspire students and their families to learn science and history from the exhibits, which show how WWII science developed and U.S. and world history was made at the Camp Evans Area Research and Development Facility.
