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.  For more information on the Center, visit www.InfoAge.org.
