343 Millennium - A Marquis Who’s Who Magazine D r. William Grant Tifft knew by eighth grade he would become an astronomer. He attended Harvard College, receiving his AB degree, magna cum laude, in astronomy in 1954. Through successive National Science Foundation predoctoral fellowships, he earned his PhD in astronomy and physics from the California Institute of Technology in 1958, followed by a 1958-1960 postdoctoral National Science Foundation fellowship at Mount Stromlo Observatory. Following three years as an astronomer at Lowell Observatory, Dr. Tifft served at the University of Arizona as associate professor, director of a Space Astronomy Laboratory and full professor, attaining emeritus status in 2002. As a fellow of the American Astronomical Society, he contributed over 100 articles to esteemed journals. He was the first to detect voids within supercluster patterns and is renowned for his discovery of redshift quantization and correlations inconsistent with classical dynamical cosmology. This led to an alternate cosmology, Quantum Temporal Cosmology, built upon the nature of cosmic time and its space-time relationship. Work continues, initially summarized in his 2014 book “Redshift Key to Cosmology.” Continuous space provides the quantized cosmic clock’s escapement. ASTRONOMY PROFESSOR EMERITUS, SCIENTIST University of Arizona Tucson, AZ A s a young boy, Roger William Sinderman enjoyed disassembling and reassembling mechanical and electrical devices. Determined to understand how objects worked and how to fix them, he was inspired to enter a technical field by a high school science teacher. From there, he attended the University of Michigan, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in engineering in 1964, Master of Science in health physics in 1965, and Master of Public Health in radiation biology in 1966. Spending 18 years with Consumers Power Co., he served as an associate engineer, general engineer, plant health physicist, corporate health physicist and director of radiological services. Since 1984, he has been the director of nuclear services at Consumers Energy. Among the notable highlights of his career, Mr. Sinderman led a team that received the first laboratory certification for radiation dosimetry accuracy in the country. Looking back on the experience, he remembers being proud of his involvement. In recognition of his outstanding achievements, he was featured in the eighth and ninth editions of Who’s Who in the World. HEALTH PHYSICIST Consumers Energy Rives Junction, MI DR.
