Who Is Alfred Loomis? 

Dr. Alfred Loomis was an American lawyer, philanthropist, scientist, and physicist who invented the LORAN Long Range Navigation System. He was also a lifetime advocate of scientific research and a supporter of education. He founded the Tuxedo Park, New York-based Loomis Laboratory, and his work on radar and the atomic bomb helped the Allies win World War II. To measure muzzle velocities, he developed the Aberdeen Chronograph, which he patented. He also played an important role in the creation of ground-controlled approach technology for airplanes and attended early meetings of the Manhattan Project.

Biological instrumentation was another area in which Loomis had a hand in developing. He co-developed the microscope centrifuge with Edmund Newton Harvey and was a pioneer in the field of electroencephalography. In 1937, he made the groundbreaking discovery of the sleep K-complex brainwave. For authors who couldn't pay their journal's fees during the Great Depression, Loomis made anonymous payments to the Physical Review to support continued education and research into critical areas for US interests.

Loomis took advantage of his affluence to pursue his passion for research. He built a private laboratory in the posh Tuxedo Park neighborhood of New York City. He and his tiny team pioneered experiments in spectrometry, high-frequency sound and capillary waves, electro-encephalography, and the precise measurement of time, chronometry, which he and his team did.

In the end, Loomis' physics work earned him a spot in the National Academy of Sciences but he never seeked any media attention and largely went unnoticed by history.

Equipment that few colleges could afford was found in his laboratory. Because of the scarcity of funding for scientific research in Europe, his fame grew swiftly. When Loomis wanted to bring prominent European scientists to the United States to cooperate on projects, he would send them first-class tickets. They would be driven to Tuxedo Park in his limousine from the airport or train station. People labeled him "eccentric dabbler" at first, but his laboratory eventually became the gathering spot for some of science's most accomplished figures, including Albert Einstein and Werner Heisenberg; Niels Bohr; James Franck; and Enrico Fermi. Many of the scientists who worked with him were confident in his abilities and commitment. All of his advantages combined to make him a powerful influencer.

The "Tower House," "The Loomis Lab," and "The Palace of Science" were all monikers given to his Tuxedo Park facility. At this Tuxedo Park laboratory, Albert Einstein and other visionary twentieth-century thinkers congregated to share their ideas.

In 1934, he shared the John Price Wetherill Medal with E. Newton Harvey from the Franklin Institute.

As early as 1939, Loomis began working with Ernest Lawrence on a joint venture to build a 184-inch (4.7 m) cyclotron. When Loomis transferred his Tuxedo Park operations to Cambridge, Massachusetts, he created a combined operation with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, establishing himself as an influential figure in experimental physics at the prestigious university, MIT.

As an early experiment in double-skin façade construction, architect William Lescaze constructed the Tuxedo Park house in 1937  An "elaborate double envelope" with a 2-foot deep air gap conditioned by a separate system from the house itself was built inside this home. The object was to maintain high humidity levels inside.

During World War II, President Roosevelt praised Loomis's work, calling him as the civilian second only to Churchill who helped the Allies win the war.

Honorary degrees were plentiful in Alfred's later life with awards from the American Philosophical Society in 1930; National Academy of Sciences 1940;  Wesleyan University, 1933; Yale University, 1933; and University of California, 1941; all of these institutions awarded him honorary doctorates.

Ellen Farnsworth, Loomis' wife of more than three decades, was lovely and delicate, but she suffered from crippling despair and finally dementia. Three children were born to them: Alfred, Jr. (a pioneering investor and two-time Bermuda Race winner), Henry (the CEO of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting), and Farnsworth (the grandson of Farnsworth, Reed Hastings was co-founder of Netflix as well as a physician and professor at Brandeis University.

He had an affair with a colleague's wife, Manette Hobart, and soon divorced Ellen and married Manette, which shocked New York society. While his previous lifestyle had included various homes and numerous servants, at this point he decided to settle down in a single home with his wife in which they lived a relationship typified by domesticity. Until Alfred Loomis's death more than 30 years later, they were married.

After closing the "Rad Lab" and completing his other commitments in 1947, Loomis, a private person who avoided the limelight, disappeared from public life totally. He retired to East Hampton, New York, with Manette and never gave an interview again.
