Aage Petersen (1927-)

Educated at the University of Copenhagen, Petersen was Bohr's assistant from 1952-1962, and after Bohr's death, he worked at the Belfer Graduate School of Science at Yeshiva University. In 1962, he, along with Thomas Kuhn, Leon Rosenfeld, and Erik Rudinger, interviewed Bohr; the recordings are kept at the Archives for the History of Quantum Physics libraries of deposit. His 1966 doctoral thesis was published in 1968 as Quantum Physics and the Philosophical Tradition.
