  John Hasbrouck van Vleck - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
John Hasbrouck van Vleck (March 13, 1899 – October 27, 1980) was an American physicist.
Van Vleck developed fundamental theories of the quantum mechanics of magnetism and the bonding in metal complexes (crystal field theory).
For his contributions to the understanding of electrons in non-crystalline magnetic solids, van Vleck was awarded the 1977 Nobel Prize in Physics, along with Philip W. Anderson and Sir Nevill Mott.

John Van Vleck was a teacher of mathematics and astronomy at the Wesleyan University from 1853 until his death in 1912.
Finally, it is shown that the Van Vleck zero-one law, which in generality falls between that of Borel and that of Kolmogorov, is further distinguished in that it provides the key step in establishing what may be the earliest example in ergodic theory of a metrically transitive transformation.
Van Vleck was an editor of the Transactions of the American Mathematical Society from 1905 to 1910, vice-president in 1909, and president from 1913 to 1914.

 Active Skim View of: John Hasbrouck Van Vleck
During the Harvard years, Van was in constant touch with John Slater, who finished a mostly experimental thesis with Bridgman at about the same time, and then left for Copenhagen to work for a year with Bohr.
As chairman of the Physics Department, Van presided over the admission-and recruitment of an extraordinary group of students in the first few years, brought back at irregular times and from the ends of the earth, mixing refugees, returning servicemen, and bright young products of the wartime accelerated courses.
One of his stratagems in cloing this was the "Van VIeck Bridge," an actual physical connection between Cruft Laboratory, where many of the applied scientists were, and the Jefferson Physics Lab.
