Bennie F. L. Ward was named a Fellow of the American Physical Society in 1998. He was born in Millen, Ga, USA, on October 19, 1948. He finished high school at the Academy of Richmond County, Augusta, Ga, in 1966. He received B.S. degrees in mathematics and physics in June, 1970, from MIT, an M.A. degree in physics from Princeton, in October 1971, and his Ph.D. degree in physics from Princeton in January 1973, under the direction of Professor S. B. Treiman. He held a postdoctoral appointment at SLAC from 1973 to 1975, was an Assistant Professor of physics at Purdue from 1975 to 1978. From 1978 to the present, he has been Visiting Scientist at SLAC and, since 1988, he continues to be a regular short-term visitor to CERN as well. From 1979 to 1985, he had the special opportunity to perform several applications of theoretical particle physics methods to problems of urgent interest in the Silicon Valley high tech industries. In 1986, he was appointed an Associate Professor of physics at University of Tennessee, Knoxville. In 1990, he was promoted to Full Professor. From 2001 to 2002, he was a Visiting Professor at MPI, Munich. In 2003, he was appointed Chair and Distinguished Professor of Physics at Baylor, where he currently remains as Distinguished Professor of physics. He is primarily focused on the theory of precision applications of quantum field theory methods to high energy physics, with recent emphasis on LHC physics scenarios and applications of his new resumed quantum gravity theory. He has authored more than 200 articles on high energy physics.
