(1935 – August 17, 2006), was an American physicist.
Born in Franklin, Indiana
, Harris received his Ph.D. in physics
from the University of Maryland
in 1964. He holds over a dozen patents and has published more than a hundred papers in scientific journals.
Walker founded the Walker Cancer Research Institute
, a nonprofit organization
based in Aberdeen, Maryland
, which funds public awareness of the risk of cancer
and research for a cure. However, the organization has consistently received poor ratings by charity watchdog organizations. (See External Links.)
Walker promoted the charge that Albert Einstein
"stole" special relativity
from his first wife, Mileva Marić
. (This claim has not been accepted by mainstream historians of science.)
