Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists
Member Gallery One
Members of Long Standing (and long hair)
Today, new members are celebrated in the Improbable Blog (where the LFHCfS has it's own category).
In the past, new members were celebrated in these separate pages, still here to record their membership.
There are 6 of these early galleries, including this one.
Members of Long Standing (and long hair) - Gallery #1
Most of these members joined in 2001-2003

Aga Skotowski, LFHCfS
Graduate student in computer science
University of Maryland
"I should nominate my friend Aga Skotowski. She's a Comp Sci PhD student at U MD. Up until just recently she was working on mission control software for space missions, but she just switched to working in the Computational Linguistics department under Phil Resnik -- another member of the LFHCfS."
(Nominated by investigator R. Michael Harman, LFHCfS)
"I have always had different hair, and I think it is about time I got my 'props' for it."

Graduate student in cellular immunology
University of Calgary
Karen Marcantonio, LFHCfS
"I would like to nominate my good friend Karen Marcantonio, Organic Chemist, who survived grad school at Penn and has gone on to become a researcher with Merck Pharmaceuticals. I daresay Karen's hair exemplifies what the LFHCfS is all about, and your Club would be stronger for admitting her."
(Nominated by investigator Jessica Erace)
"This is very cool!"
Laura McCullough, LFHCfS
Assistant Professor, Department of Physics
University of Wisconsin-Stout
Paul Wernick, LFHCfS
Department of Computer Science

(Nominated by investigator Jeffrey Borinsky)
Brian May, LFHCfS
Astronomer and Rock Star
Formerly of Imperial College London
"I nominate Brian May, the lead guitarist of the rock group Queen, for membership of LFHCfS. He studied for a Ph.D. in Infrared Astronomy at Imperial College, London but was unable to complete his thesis due to the competing demands of being a rock star. I refer the reader to his scientific publications list at http://www.pemcom.demon.co.uk/queen/physics.html."
(Nominated by investigator Philip G.P. Welch, LFHCfS)
"The guys at work say I'm a computer architect, but I prefer to view myself as the company's only astronomer... a REAL science. My hair has flown in zero-g, thanks to the Vomit Comet. I am also a professional admirer of Normal Ramsey, LFHCfS."
Greg Lindahl, LFHCfS
Key Research, Inc
Rod Schoonover, LFHCfS

America Mauhar, LFHCfS
Torrey Pines Institute for Molecular Studies
San Diego, California
MARTIN, EUGENE M.
"I am merely a graduate student in Neuroscience, but I love both Neuroscience and my luxuriant, red, flowing hair.."
Eugene M. Martin, LFHCfS
Graduate student in Neuroscience
University of Florida
Amy Lovell, LFHCfS

"I think I qualify for membership."
Tore Bye, LFHCfS
Department of Health, Environment and Safety
University hospital of Trondheim, Norway
"I am confident about meeting the luxuriant flowing hair requirement, however, I'm not sure if I can be considered a scientist since I am only an undergraduate student (Biology Major at the University of Maryland, College Park)."
Elinor Lichtenberg, LFHCfS
Undergraduate biology major
University of Maryland

"A girl friend of mine suggested I join. It seems cool. I hope there are club-associated activities such as symposiums on superheated steam or the human genome project! My friend always makes fun of me because I don't 'look like a scientist' or for that matter an Engineer so I suppose. I guess this is her way of making nice. After reviewing our truly outstanding company I thought I should try to write something a little more dignified but I get tired of being dignified so I'll say something about my hair. My hair has always had a life of its own. On warm humid days, it takes up the whole sidewalk. It has been remarkable since I was very small, and though I am quite tall, the thing people remember is my hair. My hair always speaks my mood and it is the barely controllable mark of passion in my life."

"I am happy to be entitled to join the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists with evidence both of Luxuriant Flowing Hair *and* scientistness (although not linguistic capabilities) with the submission of the following URL: <http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/~lindap/graduation.jpg> I'm the one with the silliest hat and the most hair."
Linda McIver, LFHCfS
Lecturer in Computer Science
School of Computer Science and Software Engineering

PARAVIDINO -- MAN
OF THE YEAR - 2002/3!
"Hi, I think I can qualify... I'm a chemical researcher in an Italian company, besides being a guitarist in an heavy metal band."
Dr. Piero Paravidino, LFHCfS
"It is an honor and privilege for me to join LFHCfS."
Susan Parker, LFHCfS
NGST (Next Generation Space Telescope) Detector Lab

"I submit this URL as my application into the LFHCfS."
Jim Pearson, LFHCfS
Professor, Air Quality Lab
School of Civil & Environmental Engineering
Georgia Institute of Technology
Dept. of Computer Science
University of Alberta
"I was told I should become a member of LFHCfS. While I would never want to join any organization that would have someone like me as a member, this may be an exception."
John Quackenbush, LFHCfS
The Institute for Genomic Research
(Encouraged by Victoria McGovern: "Dear Dr. Quackenbush: It has come to my attention that you are not yet a member of the LFHCfS. This, in my estimation, is Tragic. You should not hide your light under a bushel basket. To do so will only lead to unhappiness, desperation, and split ends.
Go. Go, boldly, forth forthwith. Very sincerely yours, Dr. McGovern.")
"All these years I thought I had been growing my hair just for fun, but thanks to Ken Shan's sharp eyes I have learned the real reason: eligibility for membership in the best scientific club in the world!"
Norman Ramsey, LFHCfS
Assistant Professor of Computer Science
"The Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists is a club to which I would be proud to belong."
Travis Rector, LFHCfS
Astronomer and educator
Research Based Science Education Program
The National Optical Astronomy Observatory
"I would like to propose myself for membership in this august body."
Richard Rees, LFHCfS
Department of Physical Sciences
Westfield State College
"I would like to nominate myself. Please note that in the photo I am also wearing a luxuriant flowing jacket.."
Beth Skwarecki, LFHCfS
Graduate student in Molecular BioSciences
Rutgers University, New Jersey
"I humbly submit the following two URLs for the study on luxuriant,flowing hair. These are, not surprisingly, my own URLs. The second URL is actually linked from the first URL but is buried in a paragraph and easy to miss."
Rachel Thurston, LFHCfS
Polymer Center of the Battelle Memorial Institute
"When you announced the club for scientists with long hair. I had no good pictures showing my hair. Recently we had a chicken in the house for R&R and it became curious as to what I was doing. You can see the result."
Tom Vogl, LFHCfS
Research Professor Emeritus
Krasnow Institute for Advanced Study, George Mason University
"If you are feeling brave you should be able to see a bad bad bad photo of me on <http://www.ee.leeds.ac.uk/staff/dlw/daveaft.htm>. This photo is quite old, My hair is now greyer, but no shorter."
Dave Whiteley, LFHCfS
Senior Computing Officer
School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering
The University of Leeds
"I would like to nominate myself to enter this club because of the following reasons. First, as you can see in the attached photo, I certainly have (or still have) luxuriant flowing hair. Second, I dyed my hair. I work in a University where wearing uniform for Professor is required. Because I dyed my hair blond this semester, it had generated some discussions about whether Professors should or should not dye their hair. Therefore, I think I am fully qualified as a member of the club."
