Jeff Schmidt is a physicist who wrote Disciplined Minds, a critique of the socialization and training of professionals. Schmidt was fired from his job of 19 years as an associate editor for Physics Today, the magazine of the American Institute of Physics (AIP), on allegations that he wrote the book on his employer's time. Schmidt's firing led to a public campaign involving academics and physicists, with 500 physicists signing a letter in support of Schmidt. The public campaign in turn led to a legal case, carried by Washington Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs, a law firm specializing in civil liberties issues, that produced a favorable settlement for Schmidt, including anti-discrimination policy changes at AIP.
