    Donald Glaser, Nobel Winner in Physics, Dies at 86

    He invented the bubble chamber in 1952 at the age of 26, while at the University of Michigan.

    I think I was the last person to get a Ph.D. with the UM bubble chamber group, in 1982. (Glaser left for Berkeley in 1959, long before my time.)
