My father, James Welles Shearer, received a physics PhD from MIT around 1950. Around 1958 he started working at what is now the Lawrence Livermore National Lab (LLNL). He continued to work there until his death in 1984. While there he wrote a number of scientific papers and technical reports. These were mostly about high magnetic fields and various aspects of proposals for controlled nuclear fusion. He seems to have generally published as "JW Shearer".
I have set up an author page for him on Google Scholar which lists his papers with citation counts. I relied on Google's clustering algorithm to generate the list of papers. I didn't see any that obviously aren't his but there could be omissions.
