Yale Names Woman to Physics Chair

Via the Yale ELIne newsletter we learn that C. Megan Urry has been named Chair of the Physics Department at that little school in Connecticut. This makes her "the first woman to chair the physics department at Yale and the only female physics chair in the Ivy League." Urry's specialty? Researching super-massive black holes. Take that, Larry Summers.
