The Soeldner Campbell Fund

The Soeldner Campbell Fund was established in 2009 by Alfred Soeldner and his wife, Courtney Campbell. Although the fund supports limited educational, environmental, and humanitarian causes, its chief purpose is to promote educational outreach activities focused on analytical instrument-based specialties — i.e., all varieties of microscopy, spectrometry, diffractometry, and cosmic and particle physics.
