Mystery Image #33

Posted by Jenifer Monger on January 16, 2014 in

It's time for another mystery image! I realized this morning that we haven't posted anything bewildering in quite a while.

Who is the man in the photo? Can anyone tell us about that specimen he seems to be focusing on?

Looks like mid-70's, judging from the <a>video camera</a>?

This is Harry Meiners, a professor of Physics. He is probably giving one of his physics demonstrations to a class.

Thank you Richard! It's nice to finally get a name. I'm still curious about that specimen though...Any thoughts on the matter?

Prof. Meiners usually smoked like a chimney during those early 70's demonstration lectures, nicknamed The Magic Show. I'm guessing that the object in question is his lighter.
