John Ross on Wikipedia.
John Ross was an Austrian-American scientist. Born to a Jewish family in Austria, Ross left Austria for America in 1939 to escape discrimination. He studied at the Massacusetts Institute of Technology, earning his Ph.D in physical chemistry in 1950. He went on to have an illustrious academic career, in Brown, Stanford, and MIT among others. He is remembered for his work on molecular beams, a tool that allows analysis of chemical reactions.
