Speaker: Chris Polly (FNAL)

For the last century, measurements of magnetic moments have paved the way to a deeper understanding of physics at the most elementary level. This talk will review the rich historical interplay between experiment and theory in the context of ever-increasing precision, the fortuitous physics facts that enable a modern generation of muon g-2 experiments, the implication current results have for potential physics discoveries at the Tevatron and LHC, and the prospects for mounting a next generation muon g-2 experiment at Fermilab.
